Look... if this were the 70's... the gorilla would have been given a quaalude through a tranquilizer OR other parents that were in the crowd would have probably distracted the gorilla while another set of parents jumped in and worked as a team to retrieve the child & then the child would have been spanked & probably smacked a few times, the parents would have been reprimanded & felt like shit while hugging the safe child. instead we have a dead gorilla, a kid who is being told that the gorilla did something wrong, parents who will sue the zoo for punitive damages & abuse to the child from the gorilla, a crowd of people who will also sue the zoo for the PTSD to their children... im sensing some sort of class action suit against the zoo as well as a judgement for the parents because a lawyer will find all of this & turn it into a "personal project" to make a point. by the way.... I like that I grew up in the 70's & that i was held accountable for ALL That I did wrong not only by MY parents ... BUT by my neighbors and my friends parents. People... its time to stop being a bunch of pussies & raise your kids to be aware & responsible... Imagine if my parents sued for every single thing & BLAMED others for such things as ... ~ The time i ripped my finger off on a bigwheel, ~ Ground up my fingers in an escalators gears @ the gallery in philly, ~ Broke my wrists on my bike not once but MULTIPLE times, ~ Falling out of trees daily. ~ Almost lost my vision due to an apple fight that wound up sending me to the hospital because i was hit in the eye so hard that it was described as if a potato masher had done the damage ~ Breaking 8 fingers @ one time due to a "go-cart" made out of a Dolly & a baby carriage & some rope ~ 2nd degree burns on my ankles because i lit fireworks off between my legs I would probably be a BITCH.
