My thoughts and prayers go out to the families who have lost their loved ones. However, reading thro' the article it looks like passengers were having trouble getting out of their seat belts and had to wait until police officers showed up with knifes...Wow..those precious minutes..

Doctor: At least 2 paralyzed in SF plane crash

Will this force TSA to abandon its no knife policy or will the passengers sue TSA for prohibiting an item that could have saved lives?

No.

The government will just require planes to not crash on its approach for landing. Passengers can sui the airlines if this happens.

[seems reasonable to me]

Or the more sensible option would be to find the flaw that caused this problem and redesign the seat-belts.

Walking away from an airliner crash (albeit a crash 'landing') is RARE.
Hopefully they will find a very unique circumstance of some sort.

The majority that survive use stretchers?

Looks the pilot got behind the power curve.

Nose high, low altitude, low airspeed.

It will take many months, many millions of dollars, many thousands of bureaucrat hours to conclude what TV viewers saw 5 minutes after the crash. Pilot error. Approach was - too low, too slow, too short of the runway.
