Answer the question, do hotels in Australia inspect guests luggage?
And get sued in the process.
One cannot 'enable' an event such as this. Unless you support the idea of 'papers please' in the guise of personal security, there were no expected shooting sprees, no known factor that said he was a nutjob on a mission.
Answer, that is none of your business.
What has happened to the American sense of humour?
And yet there is a $800 million payout from MGM to the victims
Bold by me.
They are not the first, nor I'm sure the last, who will pony up for a disaster that occurred on their grounds, while they hold no liability for the actual events.
Not my chart. I stole it from someone else....
Before you ask anymore questions how about you answer the question asked previously?
Does anyone get the feeling Anti-gunners want to create a police state?
"Papers please", as you're entering a hotel, and they search through all your belongings and pat you down.
Checkpoints and ID cards everywhere.
(I'm of course being facetious, and pointing out how absurd the assertion in the OP is)
It has essentially been murdered by those who go out of their way to find something offensive in every facet of life. Comedians are now under increased scrutiny because of the current culture where everyone is having their feelings hurt for some reason or another. Instead of these hypersensitive individuals being told to shut up and grow up because their feelings do not matter, they are instead being catered to and various works censored.
I channeled Rowan Atkinson to do so but you do not seem to have “got it”
Bottom line WE have a different legal system and this is not about what Australia does or does not do - it is about how a ruling like this is going to affect the American hotel industry
“Anti gunners” were not involved
The ruling has happened and the pay out has been made
So what will be the implications?
There are no implications to be had. Mandalay Bay admits to no wrongdoing whatsoever on the part of either themselves or their affiliates, as the settlement states outright. The amount paid out constitutes a petty cash amount of what the organization possesses. It is nothing more than an effort to make the plaintiffs shut up and go away, and nothing more than yet another get rich quick scheme on the part of those claiming to be victims of the supposed negligence of the hotel for something they had no control over.
Which is why it is equally foolish to compare gun laws in America to gun laws in Australia.
There is no ruling, and no implications. The hotel decided to settle.
Actually the hotels insurance carrier decided to settle with no admission of guilt on the part of the insured.
Probably depends on the amount of the payout lawyers got in the settlement.
That commonly comes out to 50% plus filing fees and court costs, so in the end the plaintiff's once the rest is divided up might be able to walk away with enough to have a dinner at Mickey Dee's.
The end result is as usual the lawyers take it to the bank and the plaintiffs' wasted their time getting involved.
