The Sheriff was no where around when this happened he was on the other side of the park sitting in his booth trying to get re-elected. Something this big should have had his leadership and maybe the ride operator would not have been allowed access to the ride controls that caused the ride to fall during the rescue efforts.

He got a 297 dollar fine plus time served if it where my kid on that ride I'd be knocking on the D.A s office

I am all for throwing bad guys in jail.. but I think this was just a case of the guy being a moron first class.
He screwed up and pushed a lever, probably isn't the brightest guy in the world, and got what he deserved. No one was hurt, and it was not that big a deal (Other than it being election time)
I cant begin to tell you how distasteful it is for people to use the old "But what if a chillllldddd was hurt" give it a rest already.. your kids are already far too shielded from the real world.. when people use their children for any purpose it really makes everyone ill.
I was half expecting them to want to ban all carnival rides next year "for the children".
