That drowning story is absolutely horrendous. I never commented on it yesterday, but in my opinion, watching someone struggle for their life and drown is un-human. If someone is struggling for their life, then policy and procedure are out the window, and you act like a human being, and you jump in and save them!!
They are intended to reduce bystanders' hesitation to assist, for fear of being sued or prosecuted for unintentional injury or wrongful death. In Canada, a good Samaritan doctrine is a legal principle that prevents a rescuer who has voluntarily helped a victim in distress from being successfully sued for 'wrongdoing'. Its purpose is to keep people from being reluctant to help a stranger in need for fear of legal repercussions should they make some mistake in treatment

I'd be really mad if they ever shot my gargoyles.
Those things cost a fortune.
Will they pay for the gator damage?

Got to give the cops some credit.
The article mentions the homeowner put the novelty "sculpture" there in effort to keep kids off his property.
Yet the cops didnt arrest the guy for his obvious threats toward neighborhood children.
Though once they hear all the laughter focused on their shooting a concrete segmented half-gater they just might return with some ridiculous charge to give their fragile egos a little power boost.
