Jonas Pierre, who this month filed a notice of claim for two $5 million suits against the city over the 16-year-old's death.....
  The trip, intended to be a joyous celebration of the school year's end, turned tragic when Jean Fritz and a friend left the group to cool down in Hessian Lake, where swimming is banned because of deep pits in the lake's bottom.

So you're suing the school (twice) because your son is a dumbass who not only cannot listen to rules, but cannot read signs. This is what's wrong with America, (one of many things actually) no personal responsibility.

He can sue them all he wants, but that doesn't mean he'll win. His lawyer might not cost a cent if he loses, so he's not out any money. But you can bet the lawyer will fight for an out of court settlement. Stand strong, school district.

Oh give me a farking break.

Yes, it sucks when people die, especially your own child, but this is simply part of the process. People are going to call, or come by the house, who don't know. It's something everyone has had to deal with at one time or another.

We have two wrongs here.

1. The father and scumsuckingmaggotlawyers who are suing for no good reason other than the parents are looking for an early retirement check/profit by child's death

2. The government school system which cannot keep track of the simple task of students who die on a school activity (after all there cannot be that many can there?).

/but home schooling is bad so I am told.

I also have no idea how "deep pits in the lake's bottom" would be a danger to someone swimming at the surface.  Unless the lake feeds an underground river or something.

It might not have been a troll, but it wasn't very intelligent.  The lake was a part of a state park, which is free to regulate itself.  "The ocean," as you've used it, doesn't seem to indicate any ownership or regulation concerning whether a person can swim in it.

Swimming access in the ocean is determined by the beach you are trying to reach the ocean.  So I agree, it was a poor question to post.

"... filed a notice of claim for two $5 million suits against the city..."

What the HELL?! How can the city be sued if it was the victim's fault for getting killed? It's not like there weren't any warning signs around the area. I'm pretty sure school trips usually advise students what to avoid doing as safety precautions! How can this be the city's responsibility?

I think that person is very selfish, using the death of the kid as a way to earn money he'll never make in a lifetime. Very shameful.

When I was in high school in our small town, one of our classmates was killed in a car-train accident on the weekend. On Monday morning, our brain-dead athletic director began his class like he always did, by barking out a roll-call, "ANDERSON!"  "ahh... here ..."and somewhere along the line "TOTZKE!"  "ahh, coach ... he's dead..."  "Oh, sorry", the guy mumbled.

Then, he did the same damn thing the next morning.
 
2013-09-27 08:56:18 AM
Well - he could have been in school, breathing or not.  A lot of students are somewhat dead in school.

If not a troll attempt, it is silly. The bottom of a deep-water lake if very different in structure from the oceanic system.
Lakes frequently have muddy/silted bottoms. The deep pits can be treacherous in that one is easily caught in the shifting bottoms.
The oceanic bottoms do not tend to have this problem until the continental shelf drop-off.
That is more a function of the tidal behavior that tends to deposit aggregates such a sand and pebbles/rocks on the ascending shelves (think:beaches and approaches).

Lakes often give a false sense of safety due to their lack of heavy waves and tides. But believe me, they are as treacherous as the North Atlantic in season.

That is not the point though is it? I made zero judgments about The boy, school, or park in question, I simply find it amusing that the stated reason for banning swimmers from a lake is 'it's deep'.  That is sort of the whole point isn't it?

There is no evidence in the article that he went past a "no swimming sign". Sure, there's a picture of one, but unless they are every ten feet all round the lake, it's quite possible that the boys came to bit of the lake without seeing a  warning. In which case, the teachers should have told them of the dangers beforehand. Park ranger shouting? Well, if he was already in difficulties, that might not have helped much.

But hey, he was poor, and black, so Fark says he's better dead.
