Sandy Hook Massacre

CT Attorney Blames State

Wants to Sue for $100 Mil

A Connecticut attorney blames the state for the brutal massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary -- claiming it FAILED to protect the children from harm's way -- and now he wants to sue for $100 million on behalf of one on the survivors.

According to the Hartford Courant, Irving Pinsky filed legal docs Thursday with the Claims Commissioner, asking permission to sue the state on behalf of a 6-year-old Sandy Hook student who survived the shootings (she was in another classroom at the time).

Pinsky claims the girl, only ID'd as "Jill Doe," suffered emotional and psychological trauma ... this according to local reports.

Pinsky believes the shooting was foreseeable, claiming a "fellow like Adam Lanza would have been known as a potential problem to the police."

The state is immune from most lawsuits, which is why Pinsky must ask for permission to even file the suit. No decision has been made whether or not the suit will go through.

When you see a white male with eye like this and who doesn't blink, you're going to have problems. Since cops like to profile, this should have been a serious red flag.

This lawyer has no connection to any of the victims, the creep is just looking fof a few bucks and to get his name in the press. The school had protective doors and other defenses that he SHOT THROUGH DUE TO THE MAGAZINE CLIP HE HAD. He was only able to get through the locked doors because of the assult rifle(s) he was carrying.

The attorney claims the massacre was "foreseeable"?!! I'm thinking a lot of people wish it really had been, but it was not.

TMZ you are not doing your job. Why aren't there any crime scene photos? What about interviews from other teachers and staff and other children? Obama whom you all love was fake crying too. He is posing in a photo with a boy who was supposedly one of the victims after the shooting.

Wake up people! You are all in a trance and believing the bull****. I do not have all the answers but I know bull**** when I see and smell it and it is all over this Sandy Hook Story. Go back and watch the videos nobody is crying. The emergency workers were not allowed to even see the crime scene and examine any body.

You people don't get it. This was a psy-operation. To take away your right to defend yourselves. More gun control. Obama wants to take away your guns and put americans in re-education camps. Hitler did that before. Remember.

This Attorney is a clown. He's been disciplined by the State licensing board. http://www.avvo.com/attorneys/06511-ct-irving-pinsky-1449309.html
