NEW DELHI (AP) — Police arrested two owners of a company that manufactures and sells security cameras after a massive fire reportedly started in their office in a four-story commercial building in the Indian capital, killing 27 people and injuring 12 others, police and fire officials said Saturday.

The police registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder and a criminal conspiracy that is punishable with life imprisonment or 10 years in jail.

The building had no clearance from the fire department and it was not equipped with fire safety equipment like extinguishers, said Atul Garg, director of Delhi Fire Services.

Garg said the fire started on the first floor of the building on Friday evening and spread quickly to other areas where inflammable plastic material used to manufacture equipment including security cameras and a large quantity of cardboard used for packaging were stored.

At least 50 people were rescued from the building, which contains mainly shops, the fire control room said. The building is located in the Mundka area in western New Delhi.

Fires are common in India, where building laws and safety norms are often flouted by builders and residents. In 2019, a fire caused by an electrical short circuit engulfed a building in New Delhi and killed 43 people.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was saddened by the loss of lives and wished for the speedy recovery of the 12 injured who have been hospitalized.

Harish Goel and his brother Varun Goe were first detained for questioning and later arrested, the Press Trust of India reported, citing police officer Sameer Sharma.

Sachin Garg, a resident in the area, said the building had only one exit door, and people trapped there found it difficult to leave quickly because of a crush. “They called ambulances and fire officials used crane buckets to rescue people,” he said.

Satbir Lakra, another resident, said several men and women smashed glass walls and jumped to the ground floor.

The building is located in a congested area with industrial units and the fire engines took time to reach the spot, Garg said.

Twenty-seven fire engines doused the flames after battling for more than five hours. A search operation continued overnight to look for anyone trapped in the rubble, the fire control room said.

The cause of the fire was not immediately clear and is being investigated.

Garg said there were conflicting reports. Some said the fire started after an explosion in an air-conditioner and others said it was triggered by an electric short-circuit.

Nolte: Netflix Kills a Slew of Woketard Programming

Netflix just announced the death of a slew of woketard shows, including an obvious abomination called Antiracist Baby.

From far-left Variety:

Netflix has pulled the plug on several animated projects, including “Wings of Fire,” from executive producer Ava DuVernay; “Antiracist Baby,” a series aimed at preschoolers; and “With Kind Regards From Kindergarten,” a film tailored to youngsters.

The streaming service also scrapped “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You,” a documentary intended to serve as a companion piece to “Stamped From the Beginning, which is a hybrid documentary and scripted feature that delves into race in the United States. “Stamped From the Beginning” is still moving forward and is currently in post-production.

And then Netflix adds this insult to injury…

Sources at Netflix stress the decisions not to move forward with these projects were creative rather than cost related, meaning they would have taken place regardless of the company’s slower revenue growth.

Translation: even if we were flush with cash, even if we were swimming in a Scrooge McDuck pile of gold, we would have still said, Get this shit off my lawn.

Remember, this is on top of Netflix’s recent killing of a piece of woktardery dreamed up by the insufferably untalented Meghan Markle.

Variety says Netflix is still going ahead with other animated projects. Still, these projects sound like they might actually be entertaining — stuff like Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight, and My Dad the Bounty Hunter.

Who the hell was the audience for Antiracist Baby?

And can we all come together for a moment and admit how relieved we are to see anything from Ava DuVernay canceled? Even the woketards are tired of pretending she has talent.

Dare I say Netflix is finally making the right moves?

Dare I express a little optimism?

Earlier this week, the streamer canned 150 employees, and since the most useless employees are woketard whiners, let’s assume a good number of those 150 were indeed woketards.

On top of that, just a couple of weeks ago, Netflix killed its woketard blog Tudum, which, as Ace of Spades points out, was almost certainly Woketard Central.

Above all, though, is Netflix’s just-announced creative policy:

Not everyone will like—or agree with—everything on our service. While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.

As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.

Translation: There’s the door, you fascist crybullies.

The most optimistic way to look at these events is that Netflix has finally figured out that woke equals death. For the last few years, Netflix has literally spent billions of dollars on a massive pile of shit called “Netflix Originals.” As a result, with rare exceptions, everything Netflix produces is shit. It’s all woke shit, and woke is anti-entertainment and anti-human nature, and that’s why almost none of Netflix’s original programs rank in the streamer’s top ten for more than a few minutes, while the 26-year-old Happy Gilmore has been up there for weeks.

I sure hope Netflix has figured out that it needs to stop lecturing and shaming and start inspiring, entertaining, and moving.

The woke inmates have run Netflix into a ditch.

This has to end.

Other than a handful of woketards, everyone hates woke. Everyone. Too many are afraid to say so, but they all hate it. We all hate it.

Idiots.
