  1. Shame city gave up on living 😕

  2. Poor people I hope they get compensation

  3. I am so sorry for his loss but so glad for his life, his service, and that the VA has been of great benefit and support to him

  4. Babylon is mostly all junk, the old world they build real structures that would last.

  5. What a mound of horror

  6. It's a mystery to me why any tenants continued to live in a building that had such a vivid history of dangerous structural problems, year after year. The deplorable condition of that building was widely known. By checking Craigslist, I see that Davenport has many vacant apartments offered at affordable prices.

  7. This here feller will be just fine, just fine

  8. American archaic infrastructure. Maybe America should blame the Chinese for being the world's leaders in infrastructure and fast speed rail. Maybe America should blame the Japanese for having bullet trains way back in 1964 when The Beatles released their first record album. America, 59 years behind the rest of the world. Last year there was radioactive water leaks in Minnesota and now Philadelphia and Louisiana. Where is Biden's infrastructure funding? Surely DeSantis hasn't used up all the infrastructure funds to send migrants from another state to another state like he did with the Covid funding.

  9. The remaining part of the building isn't going anywhere!! They can get people's things out with no problem. The damaged areas have broken off clean. The rest of the building is perfectly stable.🤷‍♂️

  10. This will keep happening and buildings will keep falling apart if there is no accountability, that is a sure bet.

  11. They ought to let people retrieve valuable property. The authorities let people live in an unsafe building but they won’t allow them to recover what they can?
