Broken Government


In Boston, a city truck plowed into an apartment building owned by Ian Cotterell, knocking a hole in it and forced tenants out. Two days later, a city building inspector showed up and cited Cotterell for "structural defects" in the building including collapsed bricks and other "unsafe and dangerous" conditions, conditions created by the city's truck. The inspector ordered Cotterell to fix the building within 24 hours and also ordered him to appear in court.
