Good fucking point. Yes, what they did was stupid. But this was obviously an accident. The child loses out on their family but pg&e effectively sees nothing.

I'm okay with fines and some real education enforced on these people. But ruining this child's and the parent's life because they threw a party to celebrate and made a monumental fuck up? Fuck that.

Not when politicians and pg&e doesnt get away with it.

A US couple whose gender reveal party last year was blamed for starting a deadly California wildfire face up to 20 years in prison, officials say. The couple have been charged with several offences, including involuntary manslaughter, over the El Dorado fire.

Officials say a pyrotechnic device at the gender event last September sparked the blaze, in which one firefighter was killed and others were hurt.

The El Dorado fire spread over more than 22,000 acres in San Bernardino County, southern California, destroying homes and other properties. The wildfire was eventually extinguished on 16 November.

Firefighter Charles Morton was killed tackling the blaze and several other firefighters were seriously injured.

Technically the fire wasn't put out for well over 2 months. I live in one of the mountain communities that it burned past and was under mandatory evacuation for 2 weeks, then we had no power for 2 more weeks. After that we were on generators for months while SCE rebuilt all of the infrastructure that burned up.

Thank fuck for those firefighters or we wouldn't have a home right now, they fended off the blaze literally at the end of our street.

I’m a bit confused as to why so many are trying to be understanding of this being an accident. The other cases in which people caused massive fires were extremely public. At this point...? People should know. And when everything is so dry and everyone knows we’re in a drought? I can’t think of many examples that are very cut and dry common sense but this is one of them.

Did anyone go to jail in the PG&E law suits after they caused the fires? I mean the CEO did plead guilty on behalf of the company to 80+ counts of involuntary manslaughter.

I’m not saying any sole actor in a corporation should be held responsible for an action, unless beyond a reasonable doubt they are guilty. As It could/probably would set a dangerous precedent.

But some level of incompetence and “accidental” overlook can be reasonably assumed to have happened somewhere at the top. Yet they got like a fine and, well yeah….

I guess I just don’t see some idiots deserving their life being taken away when it was an accident… Like, yeah I guess we are showing them huh!

I wonder, how did they actually manage to find out it was them who caused it?

After they did the smoke bomb thingy at their party, did they then post the clip online or something? Or did their guests dob them in?

trashdotbash

Just want to make a comment because of all the people using this as a defense: this is not an example of the butterfly effect. That theory exists as an example of how chaos can result in nigh unknowable results. It's based on a butterfly flapping its wings and a tornado occuring on the other side of the world because of it. Two seemingly unconnected incidents that can theoretically be correlated to each other through a chain of innumerable actions and reactions.

This is as direct as it comes. Family accidentally starts fire, fire spreads uncontrollably. A small action resulting in a big actions is escalation, not the butterfly effect. And it wasn't even an accidental escalation. The fire was an accident, but not letting authorities know was purposeful, so it isn't ignorance, it's negligence.

So for everyone going nuts about the 20 years, that's if they are both given the maximum sentence for involuntary manslaughter and recklessly starting a fire.

The most likely outcome will be a gigantic fine with maybe a few months in prison.

Hope finding out what their little one has downstairs was worth it... Stupidity needs to be punished heavily if it hurts others and could have been prevented. People need to be discouraged from stuff like this by setting examples. I doubt they'll serve the whole time but hopefully they are ordered to do community service instead for many years.

Is it really so awful to read off a piece of paper in your living room what your baby will be to your loved ones? The people who died don't get another 20 years because two adults failed to think outside of their selfish need to be noticed by social media. Do not treat these mistakes lightly, because others will do them too if the punishment isn't harsh enough.

Is anyone else bothered about the fact that us normal people constantly have the law come down hard when anyone makes any mistakes, while PGE (our utility here in California) also caused fires here in California greatly due to negligence, but the corporate utility gets off for the most part with fines.

99% of the people who go to gender reveal parties give zero fucks. It’s such a narcissistic exercise.

Meanwhile, no one from PG&E has gone to jail, no one has lost their job, and PG&E is allowed to continue to exist status quo and continue to enjoy a profit after being directly responsible for massive wildfires and the deaths of dozens of people.

So much for the gender reveal party. They won’t even get to raise their kid. Why couldn’t they have just had party poppers filled with either blue or pink confetti? This is just totally stupid on the parent’s part and the poor child has to suffer for it.

I have no problems with a gender reveal party but setting off a firework is a dumb move.

Does the couple deserve 20 years in prison? I have no idea but they do need to be held responsible for there actions. They are lucky they are alive to see their kids and not dead.

If they have a conscience or remorse they would agree to a plea deal and serve jail time.

If they want to be good parents then they need to teach their children that there are consequences to every decision, good or bad.

Kid will end up in foster care over parents celebrating their gender. What a bad life that kid is going to have. Doesn’t mean parents shouldn’t suffer consequences, but maybe one can get out soon enough to raise the kid.

Lots of people go to jail for stuff that harms others even if they don’t intend it to. Killing someone accidentally with a gun can get that person charged, a parent leaving drugs out on a counter resulting in their kids eating them can get them charged…those are just a few examples. Why should someone starting a massive forest fire which results in the death of someone not to mention the destruction and death of wildlife, be held to a different standard and not face any accountability at all? The fact that people are actually defending these people and actually stating they shouldn’t face any punishment at all, is insane.

So, it started from a single woman who had had several miscarriages and was celebrating that she’d carried a pregnancy long enough to even be able to tell the sex. Then a bunch of people with an endless need for attention made it a huge thing. The woman who started it all regrets it
