Editorial:  Unbelievable Claims

Ventura County Star

Monday, August 24, 2009

Filed under the category: “You couldn’t make this stuff up,” is the Ventura woman’s claim last week against the city of Ventura for first $680,000, then $250, in addition to another claim of $759, for her husband’s medical bills, lost earnings and bullet-hole damage to her house.

The damage her husband inflicted when he fired more than 50 rounds from an assault rifle and handgun inside the family home April 10.

A SWAT officer shot the shooter in the shoulder after he peppered the neighbors’ homes — and a fire station two blocks away — with bullets.

The claimant should realize she is lucky she, her husband, the police and neighbors are alive, and leave it at that.

In the meantime, she may have given her neighbors, with plenty of bullet holes in their own houses — their own lawsuits to consider — against the shooter, not the city.
