“The problem is if you rush to create regulations without first knowing exactly what it was that failed, what part of the system failed to create the injury, then you run the risk of creating meaningless legislation that won’t address the problem in the first place,” attorney Kagan told WABI TV 5 reporter John Krinjak.

“It really is incumbent on the operators of rides, the promoters of these events, to make sure that public safety is paramount. It’s not appropriate to rely solely on the state. It’s not the state’s function to be the police force for safety.”
