What About Scoppetta?
August 28th, 2007

The latest news coming out of the Deutsche Bank fire – the reassignment of three top fire officials – has gotten The Post somewhat disgruntled. In today’s editorial, The Post calls for the resignation of Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta, stating he needs to take personal responsibility for the department’s failure to inspect the building – inspections that could have revealed the disastrous conditions inside 130 Liberty Street.

The News disagrees, stating the commissioner has performed “excellently” throughout his tenure, and it would be unlikely the department’s superior officer would know of such mishaps within the department’s lower ranks. Even so, they add, the city must continue to forge ahead with a full investigation to clear Scoppetta’s name.
