This is a miscarriage of justice! If anything, the saw should have stupidity detection technology. And why did the idiot buy the saw if that is not what he wanted? Some people never take ownership for their own stupidity and are a parasite on others! The jury is no less incompetent. I hope this is turned over on appeal.
We were taught in 7th grade Woodworking Class to never stand behind the saw blade to avoid injuries from kick backs. One should stand to the side of the line of sight from the blade. And, one should stand to the side of the fence so that a line from the fence is between you and the line of the blade. Your picture on this article demonstrates an improper stance in using the table saw. Put the fence on the other side of the blade and stand to the side.
