Isle See You Again

You know, I had my doubts about the plausibility of the public crisis responses we saw in Jaws and Jaws II, but now…

Yeah, no, it’s unfortunately too real.

So long as the costs of people dying doesn’t significantly impact the profit generated from tourism and consumers on the beaches, it’s fine! Only after the general public starts fearing for their lives and businesses are impacted, that’s when you close the beach.

Like, let’s remember the timeline: first reported victim, mayor stops them from closing the beaches. Second reported victim, the beaches are closed for a day. Third reported victim, he sends a couple guys out to sea to kill the shark. Couldn’t get multiple boats with more people? Was there even any mention of closing the beaches again while they were doing that?

So they get the shark, confirmed kill, and about three years down the line, it happens again. And it’s the same mayor! People still believed in him after the first fiasco, and he is around once again to doubt the reports. Seven more people die, he doesn’t want to close the beaches, and you know what?

He’s still the dang mayor!

That’s right, the mayor of the town in Jaws and Jaws II REMAINS mayor until he dies of natural causes sometime after the sequel. You would think an opponent of his would be like, “He’s the guy who left the beaches open despite shark attacks on multiple occasions! There’s blood on his hands!” I get it, the town needs its tourism bad, businesses might be at stake, but the guy just did not do his due diligence.

Maybe they made up for the lost revenue down the line. I’m sure they started selling commemorative souvenirs after a few years. Long enough that it isn’t quite fresh in peoples’ minds, but it’s still recognized. Offer boat rides to the various spots victims died like a haunted city tour.
