Wouldn't this be considered murder?

    These parents went camping by a RIVER! In the RAIN! How dare they take their children out of the city and drag them away from their computers where they were safe, and expose them to the danger of weather. Do they expect us to pay for all of this simply because they were camping on federal lands?

    The Associated Press: Arkansas flash floods kill at least 16 people

    See how stupid this attitude really sounds?

    IF you show me where any 16 y/o was thousands of miles from any immediate help and in a boat which was suffering mechanical problems in this incident, I'll concede.

    Quantum Windbag, 16 people are dead. Donca kinda sorta think it's in the poorest possible taste to be mocking them for getting killed in a flash flood? If you wanna ridicule nanny laws, be my guest.

    But I think we should show a bit of respect for the dead and their families.

    I believe he is making a point about parental responsibility.

    I am actually ridiculing nanny attitudes that lead to those laws.

    Nice try. What I am for is our mutual responsibility and giving assitance to people who need it. I will stop and check if I see a car stopped on the side of the road, and give aid when necessary. I don't expect the state to come out when someone needs help, nor do I expect them to bail me out when I cannot pay my bills. I expect them to get out of my way and let me live.

    there were children there that were too far from help, however close it was. Since that 16 yo survived, and these children did not, I think my stupid, and tasteless, point is at least as valid as yours.
