What Constitutes Accidental?

Here’s the described scenario: Two teenagers, who were being chased by police, were accidentally electrocuted as they hid from police in a power substation.

This has led to nightly riots all over France, with millions of dollars of property being destroyed, many injured, and even some innocent people killed.

What I can’t believe is that every single news report I have heard or read refers to the deaths as accidental. Come on now! They were running from the police (and the French police, at that!), and chose to hide in an electrical substation. Get real.

Meanwhile, the death of three people in Bosnia playing catch with a hand grenade is not described as accidental.
