Hundreds were trapped inside the Station, a Rhode Island roadhouse bar, hosting a fading rock band. The night's draw "Great White" a hair band from the eighties, took the stage. The band set off pyrotechnics inside the wood framed bar. A local cameraman filmed the event. It took him 72 seconds to exit the bar, few made it out after him. The acoustic foam on the ceiling acted as a type of napalm. Toxic smoke and intense heat, ultimately killed 100 patrons and injured hundreds more. Some of the injuries were so gruesome, it made local reporters sick to their stomachs. Was this an accident or was criminality involved? if so, who was liable? The case was not as clear cut as originally reporting suggests. The media maelstrom took on a life of its own, the local newspaper seemingly violated their own standards repeatedly, was it because one of the owners's was a famed local reporter?? Tune in, you don't want to miss this episode!!!
