Yesterday, the city remembered firefighters Joseph Graffagnino and Robert Beddia, who died in last year's Deutsche Bank fire, and dedicated plaques in their memories at their firehouse in Soho. Though the investigation is continuing, the Post reports that prosecutors want "officials with the demolition contractor, John Galt Corp., and inspectors the company hired" to face homicide charges. When asked about the city possibly being charged as well, Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday, “I can tell you that in my heart of hearts, I don’t believe anybody deliberately did anything to make that building less safe. Were they derelict in their duty? Only time will tell.” Graffagino's widow said, "I'd like to see someone pay for what happened. A lot of people are to blame."
