According to this article from Yahoo news, swing sets are apparently too great a liability to keep at some West Virginia schools.
Swings are being removed from Cabell County schools in southern West Virginia in part because of lawsuits over injuries.
Cabell County schools safety manager Tim Stewart said Wednesday that a lot of parents are accusing him of being un-American, but he says the cost of maintaining a safe surface is too expensive.
Stewart says a lawsuit in the past year involved a youngster who broke his arm jumping off a swing like Superman. It was settled for $20,000.
Our country has gone beyond ridiculous.
We have developed into an overly-litigious society that seeks to remove all personal consequences from the people who are actually doing stupid things.
No swing sets? I weep for America.
