Scherzer v. U.S. Air Force



High-school students Bodhisattva "Bodhi" Sherzer-Potter, 16, and Christopher Cody Thompson, 18, went to an all-night birthday party held at an abandoned military bunker in Helendale, California, planning to spend the night in a jeep after the party. Unfortunately, they were instead found shot to death, execution style, the next morning; three local teens have been charged with murder and robbery. This is, according to a lawsuit, the fault of the U.S. Air Force and the Bureau of Land Management for not demolishing the bunker, presumably because teenagers would never have found somewhere else to hold a rave when unsupervised by their parents.
