A couple of things. First, women don't know how to drive the damn things. If the engine "mysteriously" revved, pull the kill switch or turn the key off. Did she take the course? Also, what the F is a 3-yr old doing on a wave runner?

They said she took the course? Hard to believe. A 3 year old on this machine? Now that is stupid. Its not a toy. It can kill and did. Most of these people have lots of money and toys on Canandiagua with no brains on how to use them.

This mother has to live with herself knowing that her actions killed her child. Show some sympathy.

Its sad but should not have happened at all. Why she did not pull the kill switch is strange. Especially if she took a class. Was the 3 year old driving the craft and had his hands on the throttle which is what witnesses said. Its not a plastic kids toy to play with in the lake.

Whites on here don't show much sympathy for blacks, so I try not to show any for whites. I do have some sympathy of you tho think I should.

Blacks do not have jet skis. This is a white sport for the super rich who have $800,000 cottages on Canandaigua Lake and lots of money. Blacks are not allowed on the lake or on jet skis. You will never hear of a black person having a jet ski accident on Canandaigua. Danny Wegman has a sign on his 10 million dollar Canandaigua cottage that says blacks keep out and no trespassing or ya be shot.

As a woman driver, I have to admit to panicking on occasions while operating a vehicle so I can't criticize anyone. I'm sure they would have to investigate vehicle malfunction as witnesses stated it accelerated into the break wall. And this poor mom has a life time of heartache over this, whatever the reason behind it. Be kind.....I can not imagine her pain.

She did take the jet ski class they said? The 3 year old was in front of her. Not good. Not advised. His feet could not touch the running board. Not advised. Not good at all. They advise that kids under 14 not ride. There is a kill switch and an ignition key. Not turned off? Taking the class would have made he awarer of these things. I guess she just sat there and got the certificate and no knowledge. I would not take a 2 or 3 year old kid on this machine. That would be insane. A kid that age is just too young. It was first stated that the 3 year old had his hand on the speed control and was driving? I sure hope that is not true. Are there any responsible parents with brains left? This is a tragic accident that should have never happened.

If she was black she would have already been arrested and charged with the death of the child, with charges beginning with Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Actually that's not true at all. Again, it's not ALWAYS ABOUT YOU. White women that do stupid things get charged the same as black women who do stupid things. It's all equal. And the facts and the news show it. So stop spreading rumors to young people that might read this and believe it.

White privilege and black abuse stopped years ago. And when discrimination does happen, it happens equally to everyone regardless of color. Some people just don't bytch about it everyday. Suck it up and life goes on. Or get some therapy for your issues. Cuz it's all in your head.

The reality is there are stupid white women and stupid black woman. This woman will have to live with being stupid for the rest of her life. A stupid decision has killed her son. A son that should have not been on a wave runner for many years.

I too read that the little boy had his hand on the throttle when the story first came out. They had several witnesses. Then the news stopped reporting this and said they do not know what happened? So was the boy driving the Wave Runner? Then the mother could not control it when he put the machine into full speed. Wave Runners can not be stopped very fast and can not turn very fast. It has no rudder. Its not a toy. It can take 100 to 600 feet to stop depending on your speed.

The wave runner was not the problem. The mom should be charged with being ignorant and endangering a child.
