Whose fault is it?: An underage girl brings alcohol to tailgate party. She dies in a car accident.


The Kraft Group, which owns Gillette Stadium and the New England Patriots, agreed to settle the suit with the parents of Debra Davis. Davis along with some friends (brought alcohol) to have a tailgate party for an event they did (not) have tickets for. Afterwards (she drove drunk) killing herself and a friend. Her family blamed the Kraft Group for not supervising the parking lot. Should this case have even gone to trial? Wasn't it Ms. Davis' (choices) that led to her death? It seems like it's always someone else's fault these days even when pain is self inflicted.

    If we deem a teen to be mature & responsible enough to drive a car among our citizens its because we believe they can & will use (good) judgment! We try teens as adults in court all the time. No drunk driver believes they'll crash regardless

    I disagree with part of your answer. It's not everyone's fault. I agree with your statement: " Kids are kids, they (know how) to get around things." The teens (knew) its illegal to drink alcohol at their age & they (knew) its bad to drink & d
