    Monday -- 12/12/16
    On December 2nd, 2016, a warehouse in Oakland, California caught fire during a concert in the building. 36 people were killed in the fire. The man who managed the building and ran the event, Derick Almena, did not have a permit (i.e. a legal right) to hold the concert in the building.

    Should Almena be held accountable for the deaths of the 36 victims? Why do you think so?

    According to a sources (including Almena's own father-in-law), Almena neglected his kids regularly, used the building for drug-fueled sex parties, and had many run-ins with the law, including going to jail multiple times. Almena's own father-in-law states that he deserves to be punished to the fullest extent. Furthermore, Almena has many videos on YouTube in which he acts quite eccentrically. In one video, he describes himself as a "thriller love child of Manson, Pol Pot, and Hitler."
