Then the cheerleaders came in blaming everything on the family and faulting them,making the family guilty and making Carnival in the clear and doing no wrong.
I think that's over-simplifying, don't you? There were many valid posts on that thread that simply pointed out that there is more than one side to every story and all we are getting is the family's side (from a lawyer no less).
I don't think anyone can dispute that if the facts are as reported that Carnival did not provide adequate response; however, there is a lot to the story that doesn't seem to add up.
Just because people refuse to believe the story outright, doesn't mean they are reading with pom-poms in hand. Carnival did play some role in this tragedy (to what extent we'll probably never really find out), but so did the deceased and her family.
Lack of personal responsibility and the desire to be compensated for everything and anything that happens is unfortunately a big part of many cases like these, so I do think it's appropriate to consider this story with that in mind.
