    Re: So The Newtown Money Grab Begins

    Many of these classrooms only have one door...That's one way in, one way out....Couldn't we just install doors on the outside of the classrooms with fire escapes for those on upper floors?

    So now we have a surviving child's parents looking to cash in on a 'forseeable harm' claim- nice.

    You seem surprised by this. I'm not. And I predict that families of ALL the victims will sue before the year is out.

    That would work for schools that have a central hallway and classrooms only on exterior walls, which was not how the schools I attended were laid out.

    I agree that the layout of most schools is extremely poor tactically. Shooting galleries full of helpless victims. That is why these psychos pick them.

    Well it's not exactly like architects design schools over the notion that someone might shoot them up...

    It's really sad this even has to be a debate - what the hell happened to this country? I'm only 32 and everything was fine when I was a kid going to school, that was before Columbine and all the other shootings.

    I'm not. They didn't have to plan a funeral and find money to pay for it. Funerals take time, before and after.

    I am not a CT taxpayer so it is okay with me if one of their liberal juries gives them the whole $100M so that the liberal jury's taxes go through the roof to pay for it.

    Are you kidding me? Think about who they are suing. They are suing all of the taxpayers in their school district, i.e. their neighbors. Their lawyers, of course, get their share and the rest goes to the parents of those school children.

    So? There are causes of action against public officials. Government immunity does not attach in every instance. And they have liability insurance if they have a lick of sense, which I doubt.
