There were teenagers who started shoving and pushing in order to get on the ride without paying. 2 cops got involved and the result was the cops ended up in the way of the arm! One was ok, while the other was hit full force and died. There's an horrible rumor going around that it would be murder, since the cops would have been pushed into the path of the arm!
I have 2 questions: Why didn't the ride operator E-stop the ride? Second... how did those kids get to the point where they were that close to the arm?

The case is under investigation but it seems to be an accident. Technically there's no possibility to quickly stop such ride.

10 years is way too little, if you ask me.

Ten years is not long enough.
How many think he'd actually live ten years in prison after killing a cop? I'd give his life expectancy about 1 yr.

How ignorant or caught up in testosterone, adrenalin or other hormones that plague you at age 15 do you have to be?
