Parks or parents, who is responsible?

A place to debate issues or to rant about what's on your mind. In addition to discussions about historical fiction, books, the publishing industry, and history, discussions about current political, social, and religious issues and other topics are allowed, so those who are easily offended by certain topics may want to avoid such threads. Members are expected to keep the discussions friendly and polite and to avoid personal attacks on other members. The moderators reserve the right to shut down a thread without warning if they believe it necessary.

Well I know what my answer is but you have to see this and read it for yourself (do look at the video and comments as well).

What say we just bubble wrap all the parks and keep everyone safe OK?

If people are worried about these things then they should lock their kids in the basement and never let them see the daylight.

So do they have a lawyer to bleed the state dry? I'm sure thats coming next.

They say they're not, but I'm guessing that's why the news story, just testing the waters. Geez, fences like those are all over the west coast beaches - they're not there for "protection" but more to kind of point out that one probably should go any further. As an adult I would never consider sitting and/or leaning on any fence like that so close to an edge. Let alone the fact that those cliffs are known to take a tumble, especially in wet weather.
