It is expected. Some people who were building skate parks for kids to have a legal place to skate, stopped. They were being sued by parrents who's children were falling and getting injured. Instead of saying "Thank you for building a place for my child to skate without being ticketed or harrased.", they sued. As if they expected them to watch their children for them and keep them from falling.

instead of trying to dole out blame at all on any level, how about we push it aside to try to understand why people make the choices they do? are some of these problems indicative of deeper, more subconscious root causes of dysfunction? i'd answer that with a resounding YES.

I'm not too sure, honestly...it's like cancer, invisible until it's already done harm. It has to become part of our daily national conversation and we have to be willing to not be lazy and call it societal laziness. Laziness again is usually a symptom of something much harder to deal with.
