Dies of Ecstasy overdose while attending rave

The teenage girl’s family has now sued the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, the event company Insomniac, a former events manager, and other parties alleging negligent staffing and supervision, inadequate security, slow emergency response and other deficiencies [L.A. Times]


  • This lawsuit gives new meaning to the word frivolous.

  • So lax/inattentive parenting = totally everyone else’s fault but the parents.


  • There’s nothing more terrible than burying your own child, but sadly I must agree with the two previous comments.

  • If their child had been arrested on drug charges, and raped or murdered in prison, would they be suing the venue for overzealous enforcement?

  • Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can’t help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime: the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.

  • @ loco,

    I totally agree. If I were to lose my son, I would be devastated.

    However, I am raising him the same way my parents raised me. Granted, he’s not even a teenager, but I will keep tabs on him, I willfind out where he’s going and who he’s with. I will expect calls from him when he goes out/or if he’s running late.

    My parents did the above for me and I made sure I did nothing to betray their trust. The one time I did, (Not calling and spent the night at a friend’s house) I got grounded for three months. Never did that again.

    Then again, I’m just old fashioned when it comes to parenting.

  • Karma’s a bitch, Rliyen. Best of luck with your parenting.

  • I’ll take my chances, Jared… Thank you for your sardonic concern.
