    re: Colorado Shootings: 1st Dark Knight Lawsuit Filed [W:90]

    So much for the mourning period. Hey, Fred is dead and I gotta sue them right now. I do think the theater should not have a door going out that wasn't alarmed or had a notification system or a flashing light or something. Otherwise, I could sneak in all my friends once I bought one ticket. However, this abruptness seems really classless and distasteful to me. Of course, that's only an opinion.

    well I believe before they sue anyone the organs of the killer should be sold off to hospitals for transplants and use that money for the victims

That it didn't allowed the shooter to leave by the exit door, prop it open, go out, get dressed, arm himself, return and start shooting. I hope they have good liability insurance or they'll just go out of business and nobody will get anything.
    Theater exits are not rated as "emergency exits". Sorry, but they are not. They are available to be used as a regular exit.

    However, many theaters have them wired into their main alarm system, for when they lock up after closing, with a simple magnetic switch on a circuit. Further, many have it such that when any of those doors is opened, it is signaled in the main office, and elsewhere. Such usage is expected, albeit briefly, at the end of a show. But not during a show, and even less, to be propped open for minutes. If the theater has a protocol, and it was not followed, due to being short-staffed, goofing off, etc., they could face liability. Not allowing folks in the back, thusly compelling all in through the front, is part of basic security in a theater. Ignoring their own alert system would be a breech of that.

    But it is not an emergency exit. They are not labeled "an alarm will sound", etc.

    sue the theater for being a "gun free zone" or the city for not recognizing state issued CCW licenses
    The gun free zone has directly lead to damages.

    I always thought that there should have been better security to make sure he didnt walk in and out. I couldn't imagine if the doors were locked and he couldn't enter, and they should have been.

    BTW... how did he enter the room? Was he behind people and shooting, or did he enter from the front, the middle?

    Yes, because having an alarm on the escape door in the cinema would have stopped this tragedy. Idiots like him could have always found a way to enter into that cinema. For the good of it, he should also add that it was a disgrace they did not have armed security standing watch over that door to make sure no armed idiots could come in and kill people

    And blaming the movie? Why do you think he himself was there? To enjoy the movie, with all the violence in it.

    This person is the prototype of a leech of society.

    I think it is absolutely ridiculous to hold the theater responsible in any way. I think there should be a law quickly passed preventing businesses from being sued for the actions of lunatics.

    I don't agree that the theater has an obligation to make its premises safe from murderers. Does a restaurant? Does a shopping mall? And so forth. God how stupid!!!
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    If the man was injured himself or if his child/father/mother/brother/sister/significant other had been killed he might have something to sue about but he wasn't injured and it was just a friend that had died.

    Now that will also have been tragic but there is only 1 party that was to blame for this tragedy and that was the shooter.

    Yeah, but the shooter doesn't have any money.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
