Kiwimann: I'm not going to blame the kid for this, or call him a Darwin award chaser or anything.Nice kid, playing hide and seek with some friends. World needs more of those type of kids, not less. fark all of y'all and sorry for his family's loss.
KrispyKritter: maybe this is why statues are often placed on raised foundations of some sort.
Quantum Apostrophe: "when the horn pierced his chest."No, no, the horn is inanimate, his chest bloodied the horn.
Gunderson: [cdn.buzznet.com image 500x321]Bull statue from where I grew up. Every year, the pledges at the University would be told they had to paid its gonads bright pink
stoli n coke: GF named my left testicle thundercles: stoli n coke: Dedmon: He's 14. He's still a child. For all we know, the other two 'adults' could be 18 years old themselves. Running around a dark field early in the morning isn't exactly a controversial thing. Couple that with the lack of forethought that doesn't develop until the early 20s, and the black bull horn, on a black bull, in a black background. Somebody's baby made an error of judgement, as a 14 year old, and is now dead.What's with the kneejerk reaction to hate on and blame the child, almost as if to say the child deserved to die? Almost as to say Of COURSE you don't run in a large empty field out in front of a large publicly accessible museum, you're certainly going to die!It took you till your twenties to learn not to run up to a large, metal object with sharp metal points?Also, this wasn't a field, this was on a college campus. And usually, if a 14-year old is out running around on campus at 5 A.M. on a Saturday, it's a safe bet they didn't just come from early bible class.not only that, but it is not hard to see by starlight or moonlight.Especially on a weekend where the moon was the brightest it's been in years.
Oznog: Russ1642: He could just as easily have run into a wall, down some stairs, into traffic, or into a tree, but because it was a statue they're going to blame the statue and not his lack of a functioning brain.[www.cbs7kosa.com image 491x350]I'm kinda divided. Just knowing people, someone's gonna run full-on into that about every few years. It just happens. Only way to prevent it would be chainlink and that defeats its aesthetic purpose.It's probably the one off to the right of the picture. Horn straight horizontal at about chest level.
Dedmon: because the field wasn't a field, and the bull might be easy to see in the moonlight?
