    As tragic as it is....cannot comprehend suing the school system...

    My sister died in a single driver car accident (supposedly at faulty steering from the manufacturer)...

    My Dad decided to just 'move on'....not worth the years of hassle and memories...

    But 'defective known component' is relatively much simpler...

    Please parents...sueing the school system will not help..

    Lawyers: Go Away

    Ambulance-chasing costs all of us dollars, this would cost parents years of heartbreaks...and only dollars in (certain) lawyer scum-pockets...

    (Not that anyone might need a good lawyer now and then, but suing here...it's just bad)

With all the technology we have today... it has to be possible.
    You would think it could warn others or the entire staff if one teacher/person set it off. Pagers can do a "page all". Should be possible.

    Has anyone read the recent National Enquirer article about AL? I can't believe we can't find any trace of AL online at all... nothing, nada, zip.

    I personally don't waste my time reading the National Enquirer.
    I don't think they are very accurate in the sensational stories they publish.

    I used to think the same thing. My impression changed with the Laci Peterson case. The National Enquirer helped expose Amber in that case. They have deep pockets and often get information before any other media source. The National Enquirer does not publish reports about two-headed alien babies born to Tom Cruise... they typically have their facts straight, and have never been successfully sued as far as I know.

    Because they don't name sources.
    That's why they don't get sued.

    Just watch and listen over the next few years... that is what I did. Most of what they publish ends up being in MSM eventually... In any case, when the National Enquirer names specifics, I listen. In this case, they said one of the games AL liked most was something called "Dynasty Warriors". Anyone heard of it? I was hoping to find a character that I could merge into his own name and find an alias somewhere on the net. No luck so far....

    Carol Burnett successfully sued the Enquirer.

    And they have settled several cases out if court.
    It's a rag. I'm not saying nothing is ever true, I'm saying you never can tell.
    They pay their "sources" and run with it.

    So sometimes their "sources" make up crap for a paycheck.

    I don't trust them. I stay away from reading it.

    To each their own.

    But I prefer my news from more reputable sources.

    But this is really off topic so ill move on.

    The only entity that should be sued for this massacre is already dead by his own hand.

    IMO, anyone who files a suit against any other party is just plain ol' greedy. I cannot, after long thinking, imagine any other reason than greed. I don't care if the party was approached by an attorney or not. Either way ~ it just still boils down to pure personal greed . . . and to think it is a family of a survivor that is suing? OMGosh! What? Then if they collect anything they should give all the money they collected to all of the families that lost their babies!

    The people who are suing lost nothing compared to the families of those who lost their children. Right?

    It is very sad that these people don't realize that they should be giving emotional and financial support to the mourning families rather than expecting a gain in it for themselves.

    What the heck is wrong with our society now?

Or a Senior prank. A panic button, like they have in gas stations, would be ideal for teachers though. Let's get it done!

    For example, ADT Home Security Systems has an alert going to directly to the ADT offices and the local police station when someone's home is broken into

    From what I've read 911 calls had to be made by the school faculty...and the CT LE were not alerted by the school's alarm system piped into LE stations

    When Lanza blasted out the school door windowns, DID this set off an alert to CT LE?

    If NOT, this needs to corrected ASAP

Staff and teachers DIED trying to save lives and by many accounts, they saved many... including this Jill Doe's. And they have the nerve to say they didn't do enough? Why not spit on their graves? Or slap their parents in the face? I cannot believe the parents, of a child who survived, could be nothing but thankful. And to have the mindframe to even go to a lawyer?? Yeah, their motivations are to make the world a safer place... PLEASE!! It's disgusting and if it were not for the innocent child, I would ask them to be publicly shamed in front of all the families of those who did die.
