SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY TV5 NEWZ ENGINEERING COLLOQUIUM EXAMINES VERRÜCKT WATER SLIDE DECAPITATION!!!



Our blog community is taking special note of teasers from KCTV5 touting their Slaughterhouse Schlitterbahn engineering conference TONIGHT and a claim that a great many smart people knew this tragedy kind of tragedy would someday unfold.

This is an important bit of ongoing coverage and a sign that local TV is outpacing the papers in their examination of this horrific incident.

Thanks, Tony.

Jeff Henry, the Verruckt inventor, is just like Donald Trump. An extreme narcissist who ignores advice from experts.

But the star told us that "we'll never know" and we should stop asking. Just trust Schlitterbahn to do the right thing which they didn't do in the first place.

GoI'd to know TV is still trying to get more milage out of this story.

The Star is a meaningless whore more interested in sparing their advertiser embarrassment than getting to the truth. Makes you wish our community had a real newspaper.

Luckily KCTV is above reproach and would never tarnish its reputation by accepting advertising!!!!

Sure thing, 6:43. Will Hilly, er, oops, Henry be exposed as a Liar and Crook? Naawww, he simply had a "short circuit" translating blueprints. hose construction engineers kept "talking past" him. Just watch, it's all gonna come out in his hacked emails. But, no worries. There was no "intent" for anyone getting harmed.

If this helps get this horrible story out of the news then I am grateful.

Angie Ricono has an education in what? An investigative reporter gets an education where? Her background experience isn't to impressive. https://www.linkedin.com/in/angie-ricono-4751048
Angie claims to have won the prestigious "Edward R. Murrow" award for investigative journalis. Per the RTDNA site, Winners receive an Edward R. Murrow Award trophy. Awards are presented to news organizations, not individuals. So her team maybe won something she didn't as a solo investigator, so maybe someone should investigate her. Her years on the job are rather short.

Who is San Demster? Well let me tell you he is the inventor of the Doorzipper. Yes, the Doorzipper, you know that thing for your house that everyone has heard about.

So you see ole Stan isn't an expert on water slides either.

The other so called expert KCTV5 showed but made sure you wasn't for sure who they were.

So KVTV5 is making you think they are really reporting something and are only seeking out more viewers for that time spot. You noticed neither one of these expert clowns was a real expert from any reputable company or society.

There are no real reporters left in Kansas City anymore, just MEME reporters and MEME's seeking attention for their hair brain so called thoughts.

7:40 - Says Hilly's Huma relaying Billy's orders (both telling her the doctor said so).

Nobody apparently reads anymore. Because after seeing a billboard for shlitterbahn on the interstate, all I could think of was this line from Rudyard Kipling.

"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you..."

Verruckt. Find what's missing.

Everyone knows the media is full of liars.

Those of us who follow the patterns of negro hyper-violence are well aware of the unmistakeable pattern of burning their victims. It is happening regularly and these monstrous cowardly cockroaches in the media refuse to state the facts.

The negroes are killers. The media is your greatest enemy. They're just much smarter than the individual negro, and have the capacity to sow much greater levels of destruction.

Well, at least the indisputable evidence is in that Billy Butler is the whiny punk bitch that we all suspected he was when he was here.

Well, Superdave:
Stan Demster worked for Disney. You are Dave Larson, head of maintenance at Homestead, a bankrupt country club.

You also claim to be a plumber, tho you are not licensed.

Yet you attack people who are licensed in their trades.

And seem to be obsessed with seeing Verruckt reopen. Are ya job hunting, dude? Just curious. Why are you in such a hurry, and willing to ignore scientific facts? And squelch investigations?

You state Angie Rincono's background is not too impressive. Yeah, like yours are? Since when is the groundskeeper and maintenance man the judge of the Edward R. Murrow award?! This is actually amusing, Dave.

Rincono's 6pm and especially her 10pm story on KCTV5 was excellent reporting. It revealed that a licensed engineer not only phoned Schlitterbahn, he SENT THEM A LETTER, informing them their design was unsafe. Ouch! That is called EVIDENCE OF NEGLIGENT DESIGN.

And Stan Demster volunteered to tell them, at no charge, what was wrong with the design.

The story also made it clear that Jeff Henry, the middle son of the founders of Schlitterbahn likes to call himself the Lord of the Slide. He appears to be a dangerous megalomaniac who defied the experts and rushed his death trap to the public to make a profit and make a name for himself.

As for you putting down an invention of Mr. Demster's, well, Mediocre Dave, what have you ever invented--and successfully brought to market? Nothing.

Interesting Tracy.

I'm still not going to read your blog but I admire your spirit!

Super Dave Rocks/Tracy Sucks said...

Stop attacking the messengers Tracy. I know Dave and he has way more education than you do or this so called reporter and he is a "licensed electrician". Never heard him say he was a plumber, but he knows more than most.
Your slanderous comment about working for a bankrupt country club just might get you in a world of hurt. That is false information, very false. Dave's point all along is let the real experts figure this out and assholes like you STFU till then. Dave has retired from one career and is working I guess because he likes it. Whats your claim to fame Tracy besides a lot of nothing. So far you have failed in everything you have touched.I'm sure you would like to enlighten us all. But you know what, we really don't give a shit. A for being the judge of the Edward R. Murrow award, it appears Tracy you didn't bother to check out what Dave posted, I found it very interesting myself. Just to bad you're so ate up with something you can't see the facts due to your being to stupid to understand them. If that Demster dude was so concerned about this ride being so bad, why wasn't he going on TV way back when, making all kinds of noise before it opened? He didn't, because he couldn't back up then any more than he can back up his thoughts now. So I guess you might say that boys blood is on his hands as well.

JoCoPost,

I am a member of Homestead and we are not bankrupt nor do I appreciate those kind of hateful comments. I would suggest you apologize in public about the bankrupt comment and to our Super Dave. It is very obvious you don't know him as the bright, intelligent, hard working person that we know and all care for. By the way, just who are you? Are you somebody who knew somebody once upon a time.

Oh my, Stan sent messages about unsafe conditions, but Hilly, I mean, Henry dissed them. Isn't this like Stevens' ignored pleas from Benghazi, all over again? Who started this private waterpark to politics parities angle anyway? Oh, we know Henry's about to be dumped on more than DONNY and hated more than HILLY.

On another note, I am now recalling some long ago studies on hydro dynamics and plumbing principles. Really. Perhaps it could explain incidents with the waterpark's tallest ride. Curiousity is calling me back to so many college days in that Linda Hall Library. There's a KSU PE acquaintance that may be of guidance.

"Stan Demster worked for Disney" Tracy says.

The same Disney who has had a number of people die from their operations world wide? The same Disney where just this summer news of a two-year-old boy from Nebraska being attacked by an alligator and pulled into a lagoon at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort? Who builds a place like this on top of where alligators are known to live. Did this same Stan warn Disney about all of these safety issues before hand?
So I don't think poking holes and implications of non-safe operations at some other water park, to then turn around and point out that person was a part of another company, where numerous deaths have been associated with their operations, that to me would make someone very unconvinced of what they were being told.

Tracy could care less about facts and proper credentials it would appear. No she would rather support non-critical hearsay from people who have no direct role in the event nor can they really prove their point or role beyond some silly drawings that fail to carry much weight. But she then can turn around and trash anyone who she deems is questioning her opinion that she has no educated background to give an factual opinion of in the first place.

KCTV5 hasn't had a decent investigative reporter since Stan Cramer died. Good reporters get statements from people who are experts in their field of education. These two interviewed that I saw were in my opinion, were not experts for sure and two fools who had contacted the station seeking some attention and got it.

The facts Dave brought out about the two at least had some links to read about and form an opinion based on the subjects and subject in question.
I would hope Dave would pull a Chastain and slap a Hodgdon type lawsuit on Tracy if what others are saying on here is true about what she said.

Grow up Ms. Tracy the world isn't about you and your frivolous views that carry no weight.

I am also now thinking about the legal ramifications of Notice of Attractive Nuisance. Will some attorneys please weigh in on that? If something dangerous is REPORTED IN WRITING (not just verbally) and the property owner does not take any remedial action, then when there is an accident, further financial damages are accrued.

Like a neighbor reporting in writing, that a swimming pool has no fence. When their kid then later wanders into said yard and drowns, more money is owed, over and above the puny Kansas caps for wrongful death of just $250,000.

I am no lawyer, but I learned of this law when I served for five years on the Shawnee City Council, including a term as President. I had verbally told my City Manager that the day lilies in the traffic island at 75th n& Richards prevented drivers from seeing safely to make a left turn at the bottom of the hill. I termed it the Island of Death.

Gary Montague, our great City Manager for 29 years, said: "Notice it up. Write me a short letter. Once I have that in writing, then the City is REQUIRED to address a Notice of 'Attractive Nuisance'.

Well, the day lilies were removed the next week.

Pay attention! The story about Stan Demster having sent an actual letter to Schlitterbahn, as well as called them, ran last night at 10pm on kctv5.com.

Pay attention.
Get your facts straight.
Instead of bashing me and anyone else trying to solve this, with ad hominem attacks (look that up, brainiac) why don't you contribute to the conversation and stay on topic. That's what comments are for.

Now perhaps you are just a tool and a paid troll of the Lord of the Slides, or the Dot. Trying to divert attention. Praying this will all blow over so you can get back in the bidness of endangering the public without benefit of engineers. Well, we are not going away. All your ad hominem attacks only energize me and others.

Yeah, well, does Tracy have a clue there's a yuuge list of Americans who've bankrupted.

WALT DISNEY and SAM WALTON, both bankrupted and bounced back BIG!!

Anyone remember the Olathe Attorney (Waggner?) in tv ads listing Abe Lincoln and other notables who've filed bankruptcies? These ads were more frequent following the '08 thru '12ish FINANCIAL FUBAR/BIG BANK B.S.

Uh, should we be wholesale haters of General Motors, because you know, they went into BANKRUPTCY in June '09?! Not me....family and friends have good jobs there. My husband (Chevy 4WD guy) and his crew worked the Homestead C.C. renovations. Now the increases to property valuation nets more tax and insurance revenues.
