While this certainly was a tragedy and we will likely never know if it could have been avoided through any means, I don't think the county and state deserve that comment. In case you haven't noticed this year has been abnormally warm and this fact combined with the recent rains has the grass growing quite a bit faster than normal. The higher grass probably slows down the mowing equipement which has started on the same schedule as years past. Just some food for thought.
