Verruckt Means Insane

The New York Times has an article on the hard-to-look-away-from indictment in the Verruckt water slide decapitation case. The article, however, is mostly about how Schlitterbahn did not comply with engineering standards in the construction of the waterslide. Not a word about how  neither the Kansas Legislature nor the Kansas City, Kansas government cared to make inquiry into the safety of  the design or, even,  failure to design what was, at the time, the world's tallest waterslide/roller coaster.

Verruckt means insane. Read the indictment itself. It will make you crazy, no waterslide/roller coaster required, to watch ten year old Caleb Schwab march to his death.
