In the month since the Marathon bombings, we've heard so many stories about what went right in that incredible week: volunteers at the scene, doctors at the hospital, the investigation that quickly identified the Tsarnaev brothers.
But today, we're also hearing allegations about things that went wrong. The Boston Globe reports that thirteen deputy chiefs from the Boston Fire Department are sharply criticizing their supervisor, Fire Chief Steve Abraira. In a scathing letter written to Mayor Menino, the deputies claim Abraira's leadership was "inadequate" and that he failed to take action after the Marathon bombings.
