For the Children™., Episode 2: People kill People
A jury has awarded the widow of teacher Barry Grunow $1.2 million from a gun distributor.
Pam Grunow's lawsuit accused Valor Corp of distributing a gun that was "unsafe, defective and lacked features that would have prevented a minor from using it."
No word about suing anyone for distributing a parent that "would have prevented the minor from using a gun."
Pam Grunow's lawyer asked for $76 million. But the jury found gun distributor Valor Corporation 5 percent liable for Grunow's death. The owner of the gun and the school board held the most of the liability, the jury found.
The jury didn't find any liability for Nathanial Brazill, who pulled the trigger. Brazill stole the unloaded gun and bullets from a cookie tin stashed away in a dresser drawer of family friend Elmore McCray.
I find the jury guilty of complete idiocy. I find the mother of Nathanial Brazill guilty of raising a child who has such blatant disregard for human life. I find Nathanial Brazill guilty of, well...murder.
Let's just hang a sign on the door to the halls of justice that says "Out of Order."
