What Is Wrong With This World

This is part of what's wrong with this world (it would be hilarious if it weren't so pathetic):

1. January 2000: Kathleen Robertson of Austin Texas was awarded $780,000.00 by a jury of her peers after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running amuck inside a furniture store. The owners of the store were understandably surprised at the verdict, considering the misbehaving tyke was Ms. Robertson's son.

2. June 1998: A 19 year old Carl Truman of Los Angeles won $74,000.00 and medical expenses when his neighbor ran his hand over with a Honda Accord. Mr. Truman apparently didn't notice someone was at the wheel of the car whose hubcap he was trying to steal.

3. October 1998: A Terrence Dickson of Bristol Pennsylvania was exiting a house he finished robbing by way of the garage. He was not able to get the garage door to go up, because the automatic door opener was malfunctioning. He couldn't re-enter the house because the door connecting the house and garage locked when he pulled it shut. The family was on vacation, so Mr. Dickson found himself locked in the garage for eight days. He subsisted on a case of Pepsi he found, and a large bag of dry dog food. This upset Mr. Dickson, so he sued the homeowner's insurance claiming the situation caused him undue mental anguish. The jury agreed to the tune of half a million dollars and change.

4. October 1999: Jerry Williams of Little Rock Arkansas was awarded $14,500.00 and medical expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next door neighbor's beagle. The beagle was on a chain in it's owner's fenced-in yard, as was Mr. Williams. The award was less than sought after because the jury felt the dog may have been provoked by Mr. Williams who, at the time, was shooting it repeatedly with a pellet gun.

5. May 2000: A Philadelphia restaurant was ordered to pay Amber Carson of Lancaster, Pennsylvania 113,500.00 after she slipped on a spilled soft drink and broke her coccyx. The beverage was on the floor because S.Carson threw it at her boyfriend 30 seconds earlier during an argument.

6. December 1997: Kara Waton of Claymont, Delaware successfully sued the owner of a night club in a neighboring city when she fell from the bathroom window to the floor and knocked out her two front teeth. This occurred while Ms.Walton was trying to sneak through the window in the ladies room to avoid paying the $3.50 cover charge. She was awarded
$12,000.00 and dental expenses.

And we wonder what the heck is wrong with our kids? Just when we start to think that we have seen or heard
it all, then we read stuff like this.

Oh My!

Gulliable much? Perhaps you should research this before you
believe it. Maybe lack of intellect is what is wrong with your
COUNTRY, not your world.

Does this not make anyone else angry? Do you realize how many peoples
lives could be saved from AIDS and other diseases with this money that
they handing to criminals. Someone needs to step in and correct the
corrupt part of our government. Soon.

not be done?

I do not understand how someone could do a thing like this, they are
idiots and so are the judges who allowed them to get away with it
gary on June 13, 2007 at 12:31
All of these cases are fake and never really happened. You people are
being duped.

Also, last year a man was trying to rob a house by way of chimney and
fell through the roof. He won his trial.

People are so dumb, and they are PAID when their stupidity affects
themselves. We need a court system of morality, which should
discontinue any financial benefits to morons.

What about the time when McDonald's was sued because the one suing was
too stupid to let his McDonald's coffee or whatever cool sufficiently
to drink without burning himself.
Anonymous on July 18, 2011 at 09:24
oh god!! why don't we sue against the jury by showing their 'BRAIN'S
LIMITATION' & get some millions???
