There's the link to the article so just click on it to read instead of me posting a brick of text. Anyways, I think this crap needs to stop in the U.S. By crap I mean nobody taking accountability for their actions. A 19-year old is near the border smuggling drugs and acting in a way that makes him seem guilty of even more and now the mother deems it her right to sue because of her son's negligence. Oh, and it's ironic she states she "wants the money to help out poor kids". Fine, sue the government all you want since they and everyone else are already paying for your kids anyways. Sadly, she'll probably take most of the money herself, but that's irrelevant anyways.
On a side note, I am not trying to be insensitive and feel sorry for the loss of her son. I wish he didn't have to die, but he did and I think her course of action speaks volumes about the current state of mind in the U.S. and it needs to stop.
