Sandy Hook survivor files $100 Million lawsuit

This will solve nothing.

A child survivor of the Sandy Hook shooting has now come forward and made a claim of $100 Million dollars.  I thought that the ‘Gun Free Zone’ mentality was supposed to protect our kids.  Now that we see it did not, this child, or more likely her parents, has come forward demanding monetary recompense for suffering through such a tragedy.

I would understand if the parents of actual victims, you know, the dead children who were killed by a mentally-unstable jackass, were to file lawsuit claims, but this….?

I don’t have the words to express my disgust and anger at this development.  I have yet to see anyone, at any time, find solace in money.

This lawsuit reeks of the quick and easy ‘fix-it’ of instant wealth.  [Bold emphasis added.]

A $100 million claim on behalf of a 6-year-old survivor is the first legal action to come out of the Connecticut school shooting that left 26 children and adults dead two weeks ago.

The unidentified client, referred to as Jill Doe, heard “cursing, screaming, and shooting” over the school intercom when the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, opened fire, according to the claim filed by New Haven-based attorney Irv Pinsky.

“As a consequence, the … child has sustained emotional and psychological trauma and injury, the nature and extent of which are yet to be determined,” the claim said.

Pinsky said he filed a claim on Thursday with state Claims Commissioner J. Paul Vance Jr., whose office must give permission before a lawsuit can be filed against the state.

“We all know its going to happen again,” Pinsky said on Friday. “Society has to take action.”

Twenty children and six adults were shot dead on December 14 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The children were all 6 and 7 years old.

Pinsky’s claim said that the state Board of Education, Department of Education and Education Commissioner had failed to take appropriate steps to protect children from “foreseeable harm.”

It said they had failed to provide a “safe school setting” or design “an effective student safety emergency response plan and protocol.”

“Foreseeable harm”?  Seriously?  How in the frick could anyone in Sandy Hook have foreseen this?  What a jackass.  A jackass lawyer representing jackass parents.
