So after reading it, this is the conclusion you came to?
I suggest you reread it and apply some reading comprehension skills. I'm not saying you have to agree with it, but personally, I think Steve is spot on with this. You've been around here long enough to know that every time this forum tries to analyze an accident it turns into a sh!tshow of epic proportions, doing more harm than good.
+1 ...the guy lost his life, but there are always people who are going to over analyze things. Give a little sensitivity to family and friends. It's one thing to learn from a mistake when people find out what really happened, but it's another to speculate in a disrespectful manner.
My condolences to the family and friends
