Default Re: Suspicuos Bridge Collapse...


"There were two lanes of traffic, bumper to bumper, at the point of the collapse. Those cars did go into the river," Minneapolis Police Lt. Amelia Huffman said. "At this point there is nothing to suggest that this was anything other than a structural collapse."

--------------------------------------------------

Granted, it's not everyday that an expansive bridge such as this one collapses.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THIS OCCURED?

Convenient, how repairs were being made on it at the time of collapse.

If repairs were being made, wouldn't the structural engineers who determined it was in need of repairs have inspected the bridge to determine its' safety?

What kind of repairs? It sounds like it was in SERIOUS NEED OF MAJOR REPAIRS.

IF THIS IS THE CASE, then it should have been deemed unsafe and CLOSED!!!

IF THE PEOPLE WHO INSPECTED THIS BRIDGE, DETERMINED IT NEEDED REPAIRS AND COULD NOT ASCERTAIN THAT THIS BRIDGE WAS UNSAFE, IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THEY WERE QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB!!

If a bridge of this magnitude can buckle and collapse, IT MUST HAVE BEEN STRUCTURALLY UNSAFE AND IF THERE WERE REPAIRS IN PROCESS, THIS MEANS THE REPAIRS COULD HAVE BEEN THE COVER FOR BOMBS BEING PLACED WITHIN!!!
