Travis Barker and DJ AM are suing the family/estates of the pilots who died in the airline crash earlier this year.

Im personally appalled that theyre suing. Heartless and greedy, IMO. What's your take?

Surprised....no? Sad....yep? I think America is too sue happy. People sue just to make an easy buck. I doubt he needs the money and last I checked dead people can't work. I am actually more appalled with why people sue other people and where they get off thinking that someone owes them! Most of the time an accident is just that...an accident. I recently reviewed a case where a man was suing the owners of house he broke into....BROKE INTO...because he cut a tendon in his arm on the glass from the broken window. Ummmm...hello?!?! Stay out of other people's freakin' houses and you wouldn't have that problem! Worst part...he won. I still get "steamed" about the lady who sued McDonald's for getting burned after spilling hot coffee on herself.....I mean seriously...where is the responsibility for ones own actions?

Many, many years ago, there was a rash of break-ins in my Grandparent's neighborhood.  My Grandparents were held up at gunpoint in their bedroom.  They immediately had a home alarm system installed, along with some special first floor window locks.  The guy next door, well, he couldn't afford all that.  But, he had valuables, too, and children, and wanted to protect them.  So, he took some razor blades, and lined the portion of the windows that the burglars had been using on the other homes, you know, down by the latches.  Guess what happened next?  Someone tried to break in, got their fingers shredded to ribbons, and SUED GRANDPA'S NEIGHBOR for it!!!  And WON!!!  Not only did the neighbor have to pay up on a civil lawsuit, he had criminal weapons charges brought against him, but they were ultimately dropped before going through trial. 

People will sue over anything.  In this case, I believe I had heard the same as 2na, that it was the tires.  How is that the family of the dead pilot's responsibility in the least?  Now, if the crash were due to, say, the pilot being drunk, I could see it, maybe.  If they want to sue someone, how about the tire manufacturers, not a family that's already suffered an awful loss.
