Our legal system is in as bad shape as our healthcare non=system.
You know the story. “ A first-grade Virginia teacher who was shot and seriously wounded by her 6-year-old student filed a lawsuit Monday seeking $40 million in damages from school officials, accusing them of gross negligence for allegedly ignoring multiple warnings on the day of the shooting that the boy had a gun and was in a “violent mood.”’
“The boy used his mother’s gun, which police said was purchased legally. An attorney for the boy’s family has said that the firearm was secured on a closet shelf and had a lock on it.”
Medicynical note: No charges have been brought because this appears to be a case of an immaculate assassination (attempt). The gun magically appeared in the child’s backpack and what else could the six year old do?
Obviously you don’t charge the six year old, though it was apparently considered. But somewhere in this chain of non-custody the child got the gun brought it to school and almost killed the teacher.
It’s not rocket science, the gun owner must be held accountable.
But then this is America where the guy who tried to overthrow an election by plotting and encouraging violence against the government is charged and brought to court for giving hush money to a porn “star.” And his accomplices continue to serve in the House of Representatives and Senate.
Corruption? Or incompetence? Or is it just our very ill-legal system.
