    1) Yes.
    2) It could, but by no means is it certain.
    3) Yes.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Then I wonder why the Republican party did not do something about it when they had absolute power... 6 years ... oh yea, the lawyers paid them off Does that mean the Republicans are cum of the Earth too? And yes the same applies for the Democrats.

    Juliet's lawyer had argued Juliet was too young to be held negligent.

    The judge disagreed, ruling Juliet's lawyer had presented no evidence she lacked intelligence or maturity.
    This is the most ridiculous part of the whole article.

    Being 4 years old is not evidence that one lacks maturity?

    I agree with whoever said that if the little girl is old enough to be sued for her actions, she's old enough to be solely responsible for paying the settlement. I'm sure the $4.19 in her piggybank will make the scumbag son feel a lot better over his mom dying.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
