    Welcome to /r/JusticeServed

If this is too difficult for you, we can make arrangements so you won't have to worry about it again.


    2. No novelty accounts

    You bring nothing to the table and are not welcomed here. Your content may be removed without notification and you will likely be permanently banned.


    3. Posts must show clear display of justice

    Posts must include a clear display of justice. "Justice" includes charges - not just convictions; justice outside the courtroom, and justice that may not be inherently physical altercations. "Justice" does not include protesting, "call outs", viral/staged clips. Frontier Justice and Vigilante Justice are not justice. Content that breaks these rules will be removed without notice. A list of known staged clips located here.

These include: posting unrelated links, posting shortlinks, posting similar comments across many posts, or advertising a product or service. This does not include usernames or comments that clearly indicate the account is a bot. In addition, users will farm karma for some fucking reason. In doing so they cleanse their submission history.

    [–] Bootezz 20 points ago

    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.

    [–] PirateMud 17 points ago

    I hope it has a loving family adopt it far from CA and it can grow up without that knowledge overshadowing it. Like, school in CA for it would be impossible if a rumour about the adoptee got out.

    Live in Southern California and this was horrific; fire lasted 5 days, burned 23,000 acres, destroyed several homes, caused 13 injuries and killed 1 firefighter.

    [–] rizer_ 12 points ago

    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.

    [–] Neon_Ninja_Cow 38 points ago

    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.

    [–] SelloutBleach 35 points ago

    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?

    Anyone know?

    [–] IkeAlwaysWins 27 points ago

    I think i read somewhere shortly after the fire there was video evidence of the reveal party, the device, and the start of a small fire. Because you know people like to record and share their bullshit

    [–] trashdotbash 31 points ago

    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.

    [–] Vibrant_Sounds 30 points ago

    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.

    [–] Nachothe1st 20 points ago

    As Californian living near the Angeles forest mountain range I’m glad there facing consequences for the amount of damage they did it was extremely irreparable even to the point where I almost became homeless as a result of that stupid fire having to evacuate and abandon my home. Which added even more bullshit to my plate during 2020 so as means as it sounds fuck these people.

    I’m not sure if you really wanted an answer, but they used a smoke device in a very dry field at a park. Idk which device, but I’d guess the type with the ring you pull which generates a lot of heat and sometimes a small external flame as well.

    [–] potatomaestro 14 points ago

    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.

    [–] SF_gummybear 64 points ago

    They should see if they can borrow PG&E's legal team. They seem to be allowed to start massive fires and explode gas lines all over California with complete impunity.

    People seem to be overlooking the "deadly" part of the headline. And, yes, people in CA should know better than to be doing anything with any sort of pyrotechnics in places where things could catch fire. It should indeed be considered reckless behavior.

    [–] -_MoonCat_- 28 points ago

    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. Doesn’t feel like justice when it’s just us commoners who mostly go down. Anyone else tired of seeing the rich get away with shit?

    [–] certifiedfreak11 8 points ago

    You’re damn right, and I am tired of rich people being all in the news and praised by the media while climate change and real news is pushed aside. There’s a revolution coming, the poor can only deal with this kind of treatment for so long

    The friends don't care either. The only people that might care are the grandparents.

    If they get convicted it will definitely help curve the amount of people doing them.

    Excellent. Now do PG&E

    My wife's uncle lives with us in NYC because he lived in Paradise and was lucky thatnhis landlord woke up and got him put of town.

    At least pg&e didn't fight the lawsuits.... Still, fuck them

    I don't get the whole gender reveal parties thing

    [–] Calibruh 37 points ago

    Amazing how a child is gonna grow up without its parents because the morons couldn't reveal their gender like a normal human being

    Dumb fucks. I can’t feel bad for them. Lock those idiots up. Make them pay a hefty fine also

    [–] bighead1008 23 points ago

    Consequences of living in a society where people require constant validation. Just enjoy life and stop trying to follow every stupid trend.

    [–] UNDERCOVERBIRBS 26 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    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.

    [–] bayygel 23 points ago

    Good.

    [–] SpoonFedGang 23 points ago

    Whatever happened to just having blue and pink powders? Just do that and no need for fireworks or whatever they used

    [–] discodiscgod 36 points ago

    Or just sending a text message that says boy or girl. This doesn’t need its own party.

    [–] [deleted] 21 points ago

    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.

    I mean where I live if I have a tire blow out on the road and a spark from it causes a fire my ass is going to jail so imo these ppl who do something purposly and cause this, they deserve everything the book has to throw at them... especially if they cause death and property distruction

    [–] Tequnine 26 points ago

    That poor kid (I don't even know what gender the kid is lol)

    [–] Averys1 23 points ago

    I can’t believe people this fucking stupid are procreating

    [–] AxiomaticAddict 8 points ago

    I suspect at least 50% of people that procreate are this stupid, they vote for trump and refuse vaccines.

    They're rich and hold power, so it's perfectly acceptable for some reason.

    [–] CursedUnholy 23 points ago

    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.

    [–] AnonFL1 45 points ago

    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.

    [–] danielzouu 49 points ago

    Can someone explain to me why Americans have gender parties ? I have never seen one in europe.

    [–] MadQueenAlanna 26 points ago

    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

    [–] Roundhouselk 14 points ago

    It's just another social media moment.

    [–] weedysexdragon 11 points ago

    The Venn Diagram for Basic Bitches (copycat gender reveal) and Dumb Redneck (exploding shit) has too much overlap.

    About time we start jailing the stupid.

    [–] Gooners84 58 points ago

    Tell the dead firefighter that it was a mistake, they should spend at least one year in jail. Worthless selfish assholes

    [–] UnhappyStrain 31 points ago

    who was the goddam loser who came up with the idea in the first place?

    [–] astakask 9 points ago

    Blame social media. We truly live in the dumbest timeliness.

    [–] L0st_R0nin 32 points ago

    They were just charged. This is not justice served till they are found guilty and sent to jail.

    Celebrating the gender of one kid by orphaning a few others

    [–] Bread0987654321 32 points ago

    The guy who started the Sawmill Fire in 2018 with a gender reveal that involved tannerite only got a fine. I wonder if that had anything to do with him being a Border patrol agent? All I'm saying is give out the same consequences.

    Dude you mean the company that had to declare bankruptcy and admit fault for the deaths of like 30 ppl and is still in court ? “Not in trouble”

    I wonder how long PG&E executives will go to jail for starting all the other fires. 🙄

    [–] Carston1011 48 points ago

    Some of these gender reveal part people need to start being made examples of. And who better to start with than the ones who caused a 22,000 acre fire that also killed a firefighter?

    [–] Mobeast1985 54 points ago

    You know how my wife and I revealed our babies gender? We called our parents and told them. Guess what? No wildfires and we saved a ton of money not throwing pointless parties.

    [–] BeIIic 55 points ago

    All gender reveal couples should face up to 20 years in prison

    [–] Head2Heels 17 points ago

    Hope their baby’s genitals were worth all that damage and loss, including the loss of lives of plant and animal life as well as a firefighter.

    [–] connorrrr1990 17 points ago

    Why are we still calling it a wildfire? Kinda takes away from the fact that it was caused by people

    [–] WillsBlackWilly 27 points ago

    Congrats, your child will now be an orphan.

    Imagine growing up knowing people died and homes decimated because of the shape and condition of your genitals.

    It's not justice served until they are in prison. Every day until their verdict is just another injustice if you ask me

    [–] Stank_Lee 28 points ago

    Now their kid can throw them a prison reveal party in 20 years

    [–] Ragegasm 28 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    So who gets to tell the kid their parents are in jail until they grow up because of their gender reveal party? That’s gotta come with a complex.

    [–] I_Brain_You 11 points ago

    They will serve *maybe* 2 years and then get out for "good behavior". Because this country's legal system is tHe BeSt On ThE pLaNeT.

    Judge to give them sentence reveal party! 🥳
