That would be true justice, not the lame whiny justice that our society created to protect the criminals at the expense of the victims. I hope the father is sued until he is completely bankrupt for the sins of his idiotic spawn, who he is absolutely responsible for. It won't repay for the man's loss, but it will be a start.

That's true but it could go a long way towards paying the victim's medical bills which will be astronomical even if he has health insurance.

I can't help but wonder if daddy will be replacing darling daughter's Mercedes.
If daddy doesn't have a large personal liability policy to cover this guys lifetime medical care he's not even going to keep his house when the injured guys family gets done with him in court.

No way the standard auto policy is going to have enough limits to pay for all that guys medical stuff.

I bought one for this very reason...kids driving, kids in my house etc...I frankly don't want to lose pretty much everything I own if someone makes a stupid decision or just something accidental were to occur.

Yes, I know that her car would go wildly out of control if she were shot, but would you hold the intervener harmless, or perhaps even consider intervening yourself?

If this belongs in "great debates," moderator, please move my comment.
She was doing over 90 mph, I don't know if anyone would be able to shoot a target moving that fast?

What gets me about this story is how she's attempting to sue Snapchat, I still say there should be more to getting an license than passing two lousy exams maybe a psych eval?

1) Life isn't a Hollywood movie. Successfully taking out the tires of a moving car is no small feat.

2) The idea that the public should just be allowed to start shooting at cars 'because they think the driver might eventually hurt someone' is about as batcrap insane an idea as I've heard in some time.

I can't think of any basis for holding the father liable.

The only thing I can find on this self-absorbed idiot is that she is "currently incarcerated".

I feel a little safer knowing that.

Be a little like trying to pick off a Clayton Kershaw fastball.
