    frivolous lawsuit

    Woman calls cops because son was acting erratically. Cops get there, shoot and kill the son and now the cop is suing the woman for mental anguish... as if he didn't know the duties of his job or something.

    Idiocracy wasn't a movie. It was a prediction.

    I've always said that it wasn't a movie, it was a republican documentary. Being that there are only three or four companies that exist and the people in the white house staff are making money by mentioning a corporation. lol

    Being a cop you assume the risk of a certain amount of injury with the job. I cannot imagine this going far.

    Could be a pre-emptive lawsuit for when they sue him cause you know it is going to happen.

    I don't know if that is a wise decision. Could end up hurting credibility.

    The silly lawsuit aside, why on earth do people ingest or smoke bath salts? At what point does that sound like a good idea??
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Sometime after the heroin kicks and right before you buy paint.

    But it would be leverage to a settlement if they file suit against him. No matter how right you are, people get really freaked out when they get sued for tons o'money cause you just never know.

    A lot of colleges have banned bath salts. They treat it the same way they would illegal drugs as far as disciplinary proceedings. Apparently that high you get is from you almost if not completely dying in the process

    I think you wisely phrased it as "a certain amount" of injury. I think it's possible, depending on the circumstances like how the 911 call was phoned in, for example, that the family placed these officers in a dangerous position in a way that might warrant civil damages. Not simply by asking them to do their job, but by not adequately indicating what type of backup might be required, misleading them as to the seriousness of the situation, etc.

    It's possible this is a completely ridiculous case. But I wouldn't dismiss it summarily just yet.
