I agree with stiffer penalties for folks who go into the waters when it is not safe! We have folks trying to help save a life only to see these people out in the choppy ( you can tell not safe ) waters when they shouldn't be. I have sat on my balcony and watched this last time we had a storm, Debby get in the water when it was double red flags and fight the water. Then you have parents who don't watch their kids get in the water and they are preoccupied laughing with friends and not looking in the direction of their kids. I watched the man in the jeep go up and down this beach telling folks to get out only to see them get back in when he was gone. Please let's make them pay where it hurts so maybe their lives can be saved. Martha
