Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: How about we sue the mom for procreating with a lunatic? Hmm!?

You may be right. He may be crazy. But it just might have been a lunatic she was searching for.

ThatDarkFellow: I say we pay all lawyers 20 million a year with the catch that we randomly hang 100 of them a year

Maybe do a Hunger Ganes riff with 100 of them given real 9mms and 100 given dummy 9mms. Let's see whose left at the end. Spin the wheel, cull the  herd.

fullyautomatic: I don't know what an anchor baby is, but it sounds inappropriate.

Indeed, totally inappropriate... Babies are far too light and buoyant to be used as a proper anchor... The boat would just drift away!

We should make suicide illegal. That will solve the problem.

An actual suicide.

CliChe Guevara: Infernalist: What's cute is that you think it's shock.  Or that it 'wears off.'

therapy for sure, and not easy to shake i'll give you that, but look at the alternative;
it has to be easier to shake off than a crackhead felon wifebeater for a dad.

Not really, no.  Having a parent kill himself is a horrible fate.  It does something to a kid that can't ever really be fixed.

Children of suicides have a high rate of suicide in turn when they reach adulthood.  Even if they don't give into the urges, the urges never ever really go away.

Having to actually see it?  I can imagine the damage is exponential.

Trust me, they'd have been better off with a crackhead father in prison and in and out of their lives.

FTA- "Angela Rodriguez, the mother of JoDon Romero's children"

Her anchor babies are all still alive. That should be compensation enough. Too bad the NRA lost another responsible member. They can't really afford to lose the ones with ethnic sounding last names.

srhp29: I'm pretty sure the dude killing himself inflicted the emotional distress.

Also, freedom of the press.

Having a parent kill himself is going to be traumatic.  But nothing close to the amount of damage done by actually witnessing it.

And there 'are' decency standards for television.  No nudity and no 'real' graphic violence.  I'm sure Fox News didn't go into this expecting a suicide on live TV, but all the same, there's some level of responsibility that they have to take for the footage that they filmed.

Yeah, I can totally see where the mom is coming from here. I'd say that's about 480,000 dollars worth of pain and suffering.
