    Well that's quite the leap. Emotionalized, dishonest hyperbole doesn't make for good argument. Just FYI.

    Sure, depending on circumstances. It's helpful to remember that children don't get to choose their parents.

    Of course it does, they didn't have these when I was a kid and we all brought our shotguns and rifles to school during hunting season

    Yeah because obviously everything is static and obviously this is only a problem in parenting.

    As I said, if you can prove it in a court of law then by all means, make the case.

    Well they do rely on evidence and burden of proof unlike your ample use of supposition and assumption. But as I said, if you can prove they had knowledge before hand in a court of law, then by all means make your case. It sounds more like you just want to huck them in jail without having to demonstrate anything, which is counter to our system.

    Directly responsible? Unlikely, but suffer some penalty perhaps, all depends on the situation of course.

    I think you fall under the assumption rule yourself

    Not really, you should probably just reread that again.
