Newtown family lawsuit…

A Newtown family has filed a 100 million dollar lawsuit against the state claiming that they failed to protect the children from “forseeable harm.”  This family did NOT lose a child on that horrible day.  In fact, they have a healthy, breathing 6 year old child at home with them.  That’s a lot more than those other 20 sets of parents have.  Those parents had to bury their children right before Christmas.

And let’s look at this “forseeable harm” shit.  (Sorry about the language, but I’m pissed off.)  I would love to know how this horrific event was forseeable.  This Lanza kid shoots his mom at her home and then drives to the school to shoot kids.  As far as I know, there were no prior threats made, no notes sent, no gossip from his friends or aquaintances, not one indication that this sociopath would drive to a school and murder children.  The school has not had any situations dealing with lunatics roaming the halls carrying weapons.  This school even had better security than most schools.  So, what exactly was forseeable???

It seems to me that this family is just looking for a huge payday.  They are using this tragedy to make themselves a fortune.  Personally, I don’t think the state owes them shit.  No one owes them anything at all.  They should be counting their blessings and being thankful they have their child.  They could also show a little compassion for the other families that weren’t so lucky.

People these days are looking for too many damn handouts.  Profiting off tragedies and sheer stupidity seem to be the craze.  Think back to the person who sued McDonalds for their coffee being hot.  She spilled it, like an idiot, and got mad cause it was hot.  It’s coffee you moron!  Our court system allows this type of shit too.  What has happened to this country and it’s citizens?

    I saw the news report yesterday about the lawsuit and was disgusted. That family should be ashamed and that lawsuit should be thrown out. Why waste the court’s time on something so ridiculous? In fact, the parents should be fined for filing a frivilous lawsuit. I’ll bet if that law were imposed, a lot of this bullshit would stop.
    Sandy Hook was a tragedy and I can’t even imagine what those parents are going through but it was no one’s fault except the shooter. You can blame guns, the state, his mom……anyone you want, but HE fired those shots. Blame him. But to file a lawsuit and try to make money off of someone else’s pain is disgusting at best.
