Hwy bill. Notice something about the anti BSR peeps? A good majority of them are low jump numbers and/or non instructional rating holders. Guess they've never had to scrape one of their students off the ground.
Death is easy. Those that get fucked up for life are the hard ones to deal with. After they are "well" again, their shatterd lives still have to be put back together.
Listen to the screams of someone in agony with a powdered lower body in the landing area. Talk to someone about the pain of taking a shit with a broken pelvis. Ask someone about the inconvinence, pain, and embarrassment of a colostamy bag. Hold someone's hand as they die.
Then tell me something doesn't need to be done. Instructors and DZO's need teeth to back them up.
Why do fewer people pull below 2 grand than they did in the 80's? Because there is a BSR. Why do students not die from cutaway/no reserve pull anymore? Because there is an RSL/AAD BSR.
Figure it out.
