I missed the part where having special needs is a stigma. Perhaps this reflects your own special needs.

Wait, you are going to see someone demand that the parents or the teacher or the whole KJ be charged with murder.

It is not up to the parents. The government has to investigate and prosecute, somebody messed up. It sounds as though the cabinet fell from the wall. Was it secured? Dis they catch a beam/stud or did they just catch some sheetrock.
I am sorry but anybody (and their employees) in construction has to consider what might happen down the road if they only do a part way job.

You raise several valid appropriate questions to be investigated BEFORE the start of the usual mindless 'lock them up' rants from small minded, mean spirited mental midgets who salivate at the opportunity to attack grieving frum parents with a ferocity seldom seen from bipedular mammals.

Any bar seichel veyodai'ah safer knows there is a broad spectrum of liability ranging from maizid to o'ness and I wish anyone who finds fault with that concept would address their issues with The Author of the Torah, or at least a good psychiatrist.

There will be an investigation on the construction installation ...A tragic accident. We've heard this before in homes involving book cases an small chest of drawers not fastened to the wall. In this case it was an failed.

As with your insensitive, despicable opinion (also in posting #5), at this time when the parents are grieving, I'd like to state the following; instead of you expressing condolences and showing some rachmonos to the parents and family, you used this very sad occasion to express your arrogant, pompous, self-righteous, holier than thou opinions, which have no place on this board. You just can't seem to zip your mouth!

Go argue with G-d. The Torah He gave us teaches us there are differences between an accidental death (which is not punishable by bais din) and premeditated murder.

As for expressing my condolences to the family, why do you assume I have not already done so? Because I haven't shared it here on VIN like a teenaged FB addict?

Your opinion that I am " arrogant, pompous, self-righteous," and "holier than thou" is proof positive that you have a hateful agenda. It is those like you who knowing nothing about the people, the situation, the circumstances or the events get on line demanding the proverbial pound of flesh. It I who take the position that offering such an opinion would be arrogant, pompous, self righteous and reek of a holier than thou attitude.

Now go make arrangements to have some face time with G-d so you can straighten Him out.

Not once did I voice an opinion demanding accountability regarding this horrible, tragic accident. However, since you brought this matter up, there is a difference between a piece of furniture accidentally falling down, and killing someone, as opposed to one leaving a helpless human being in a sweltering car, to die. A pompous, arrogant jackass such as yourself, can't seem to differentiate between the two horrible tragedies.

Sorry if the concept of Ir Miklot offends you. Go discuss it with G-d.
