Reader says Harding Pharmacy & Liquors was just another Victim of a legal System the rewards lack of Personal Responsibility 

This just shows how densely arranged our legal system really is. Hardings was involved in the lawsuit because they had the most to contribute. If Hardings freely provided the drug or sold the drugs to make a profit maliciously (knowing full well this was to be used illegally at a party) then I can see how they would be at fault.

The homeowner and the ex-employee should have been held completely liable considering the homeowner threw the party serving alcohol to minors and the Ex-Employee actually provided the stolen drugs to the teen (at that time).
The partygoers should have been left harmless because they are not medical professionals that know for a fact Simon was falling into a coma. If anything, this is traumatizing to them and again, this goes back to the homeowner for allowing such a party.

Finally, where is the accountability on the actual abuser of the substance? Oh…he suffers nerve damage and other maladies due to overdose. Yeah….heroin addicts are convicted for doing these drugs and suffer withdrawal…do you see them suing their drug dealers? Also…if a gun was stolen from a gun store and used to kill someone, does this make the gunstore liable for the death? Come on people…if you don’t see how simple and stupid this is, you need to wake up! The legal system is ridiculous and we are allowing it! “We the People…” Not “Our government…”

  1. When I was in Harding the other day, Myron’s wife, said they lost their lease.

    But I agree with you 100% on the lack of personal responsibility. Myron and his insurance company shouldn’t have been forced to pay one dime to the “victim” who took the stolen drugs. Why not blame the kids who stole the drugs, the irresponsible parent who washed his hands of his troubled son and turned over his parenting to a 20-something irresponsible “baby sitter”, or both of the “victims” parents who (despite having millions and millions of dollars) dragged on their divorce for petty reasons, etc. I really blame the father of the victim . . . you give your drub-abusing son his own house to live in with 20-something “guardian” so you can go on with your own life and then blame everyone else but yourself???? Good grief.

  2. Losing one’s lease can be interpreted in many ways. Yes, the landlord wants to up it, and the “losing” part simply means the existing tenant (i.e. Myron) is not willing to pay that amount. It comes down to money and the lawsuit, I’m sure, factored into that decision. I’ve no doubt that Myron’s insurance premium went up in a big way and cut into his profit margin.
