Everybody's Gonna Sue Schlitterbahn

I'm not going to sue. I am recommending them for an esteemed award for service to the community.

Tracy I am sure will be called out as an expert witness and person of extreme knowledge for all of those about to sue everyone they can.

OoooooWEEE!
Cash in time!!!
How about a "Go-fuck-me" donation or two?
These two will settle for $10,000 a piece and sign a "shut your fucking mouth" agreement.
That should give them enough to buy a new couch to put outside the trailer.

The city is in mourning today after dozens of area lawyers were trampled to death in the rush to deliver their business cards to persons who were injured at the Schlitterbahn, saw someone get injured at the Schlitterbahn, might have been injured at the Schlitterbahn if only they'd been there or were traumatized by news accounts about other people who being injured or thinking about being injured at the Schlitterbahn. In memory of the deceased ambulance chasers, the metropolitan area will observe a nanosecond of silence on the twelfth of never.

God forbid the owners of this ramshackle shitheap be held responsible in the only way that matters to them, straight in the pocketbook. If they had ethics, they wouldn't have designed the ol' multi-story guillotine o' fun.

Here's the problem. Injured victims (who are overweight and already being shamed for that) and grieving families are prone to listen to the lies of the defendant, that "we will fix this so it never happens again." It's normal psychology for grievers to want the story to just go away. But look at Schlitterbahn's history. The Star's Steve Vockrodt and Laura Bauer outlined the three previous cases. Low ball offers. Settlements out of court. SEALED REPORTS!!!! No trials. All obsessed with just getting back in bidness! Are they taking down the DeathNet? In KC and in Texas? Who thought of that? The UG? Who agreed to build it, without an engineer pointing out it's a giant egg slicer???

Are they going on crash diets? Did one of them catch the head? These are important questions that people deserve an answer too.

A 70 ph rubber roller coaster with no track and a safety net, what could go wrong?

JoCoPost - you are so out of touch it is nauseating. Amusement parks have liability insurance policies. Settlements are negotiated and paid by the insurance companies, not by the amusement parks. And you have started again with your bizarre theories of what caused the accident. Why don’t you back off and let the authorities complete their investigation? That way you will not be showing your ignorance again.

Stop questioning, citizens! Trust the authorities! Consume and enjoy!

8:59: #1, I don't back off. That's how we defeated BiStateII and Big Soccer. We worked for free, and we defeated the big owners and we stopped $2.4 BILLION in unnecessary tax dollars.

#2. Obviously, you are on the side of sweeping this under the rug, so you can get back in business.

#3. Insurance companies only pay up to the limits of the coverage. This case is probably well over that. And then due to their probable gross negligence, they will lose their coverage. Hence the owners, not just the insurance carriers,are working behind the scenes, not only with the governmental regulators, but also the plaintiffs' many attorneys, in a Rush to Settlement. Nip it in the bud. Make the story go away. Gag the recipients. Keep it out of the papers. And off of the new arm of journalism--blogs and talk shows.

#4. Let the "authorities" do their investigation? Do I trust them? Hell no. They are all hugely incentivized to make this go away. Tax dollars. Jobs. Ad dollars. Community reputation. So unless we in the community keep asking questions, we will never know. And Jeff Henry, the Donald Trump of waterslides, the arrogant narcissist liar to TV stations just to get free publicity, will continue to expand his Empire of Death and Decapitation, Schlitterbahn, in other markets as well.

#5. The public is largely clueless, BECAUSE of the original coverup. Do you think most moms and dad knew that the head was stuck in the DeathNet, which is why they had to cut down part of the net, to retrieve it? And ban helicopters from flying overhead? NO. Because the corrupt TV and STAR media withheld those facts, to protect their big advertiser. They called it "a serious neck injury". Well other than that mishap, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?? Had the public been told the truth, they would not have returned to Schlitterbahn three days later for their back to school vaca with little kids. The kids would not have let their parents drag them there to use up their season passes!

So, 8:59--aka Jeff Henry or Winter Prosapio/writer of bathroom humor books whose only previous news job was writing columns "to make Germans laugh", back off. You're only giving me energy to dig deeper. Everything I've written to date, a week before the Star and KMBC and KBBZ started asking the same questions, has proven to be part of the explanation.

I hate cheaters and greedy short-cutters and people so damn stupid you didn't think to STOP and question the DeathNet, or load the rafts in the proper order, or test the extremes of limits on load distribution. Looks at first blush like gross negligence to me, Trumpsters. I went to school in Iowa. A state of minds. Apparently, you never learned to question authority. But I did. And I'm not going to back off because of your anonymous bullying. And ad hominem attacks. (Big words there. Look it up, you careless Texas hicks.)

We notice Tracy is going equal opportunity on bi-partisan slams. She describes Jeff Henry as having the same traits as Trump--arrogant/ narcissist/ liar.

Earlier, Tracy tossed in a sly tie to Crooked Cronied Clinton when she blasted the Dotte's Dems led UG, without even mentioning Hilly's name--just like Hilly, Billy, and Barry are known for when targeting Donny.

Yep, Tracy put it on Mike Taylor that he walked back his statement. So, he had the misfortune of a "short-circuit", or he and the media were only "talking past each other". Taylor did not majorly misfire with anything anywhere near a "sniper fire" fabrication, thank goodness.
