A while ago, I posted about the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash aftermath. The story's pretty complex, but it ended with a San Francisco firefighter filing a complaint against the department. She said she was unfairly blamed for the death of one of the passengers, who was run over and killed during the rescue effort. Turns out the victim, a 16 year old girl named Ye Meng Yuan, was actually struck by two separate Airport Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) trucks. The firefighter in question, Elyse Duckett, was driving the second of these, and she alleged that because she's black and lesbian, the first firefighter's involvement was covered up and all the blame and responsibility was put on her.
