“because the rapist has to pay for what he has done. Some rapists don't have like $100,000 so you take what you can from them to pay the victims. It's better to get $100,000 than to get zero dollars.”

“Just for your edification, you cannot sue your rapist for emotional trauma, or for the rape. How can you measure monetarily what they have done to you, and taken away from you? You can't, which is probably why you aren't allowed to go after them.”
“Try masturbating and then try having a girl give you a hand job. You get to the climax faster when you do it yourself because you know exactly how it feels. The girl might rub it the wrong way and kill ur climax. You actually have to slow it down when you reach the climax.”

“It's kind of comical of you to imply that I haven't had either....
Maybe TMI, but when I play solo, I don't try to climax as fast as possible. I enjoy pushing myself to the edge and then down shifting (repeat at least a half dozen times).
The real trick (from a guy that's cut) is lube, regardless of whose hand is on the equipment.”
“The server was just doing his job and doesn't have much power. He doesn't want to get into a fight.
If I steal $1,000 from you then you have the right to get your $1,000 back from me but you can't expect to get $1,000 from other people because they are not the ones who stole it from you.”

“I'm not sure where you live but I am responsible for every inmate that gets put in jail. He/She gets food, clothing, roof over their head, TV (w/cable), access to a phone etc. My taxes go for Medicaid, School system and so on and so on. So for once, the good guy got a win. Doesn't matter who paid because he likely will be going through therapy and have residuals after that. I do feel the restaurant does bear responsibility since they should have had policies in place for this kind of issue. Like the Red Sox over the Yankees any day.”

“The server's job, in addition to making money by selling alcohol, is to observe the customers and not serve alcohol to intoxicated people. It is not only the moral thing to do, it's the law. The bar made money by selling alcohol to this man and got him drunk to the point that he forever changed the life of another customer. That makes them also responsible.”

“I do not agree with you. The server was not doing his job. If he were, he would have stopped serving an intoxicated patron.”

“The server was not doing his job. If a drunk leaves drunk and runs over someone the Dram Shop is liable, same if they stab someone and even more so when the perp has been pointed out. Stabber should have got 40 years though.”

“Because the server worked for the company that allowed the server to stab a customer ..........In case you didn't know , any company that hires someone is responsible for he or she does on the companies time clock !”

“The bar is responsible to keep it a safe place. When this guy started to get loud and looking for a fight they should have cut him off.
Of course who could know that the loud belligerent drunk would stab a guy in the neck.
The victim is lucky he could have been murdered.”

“The bartender was not doing his job. It's part of a bartender's job to stop serving drinks when people are clearly out of control for whatever reason. Then the bouncers show you the door.
The bar was negligent.”
Brian Corvello on Jun 28, 2013 at 13:04:43
“It's illegal for a bartender to serve liquor to a patron who's obviously intoxicated. He was not doing his job. He was breaking the law.”

“You need to brush up on the law. Connecticut law allows victims of alcohol-related accidents to pursue liability against commercial establishments in certain circumstances, so-called "dram shop" liability. Restaurants, bars, nightclubs and other establishments as well as social hosts that serve alcohol may have legal responsibility. Bartenders take classes about situations like this.”
KIVPossum on Jun 28, 2013 at 12:05:52
“No, that is not the server's job. I run bars and we will cut you off in a heartbeat if you are drunk or if you are rowdy. Drunk and rowdy gets you an escort to the door”
“Why should a company pay $4 million for another person's attack? Make the person who actually stabbed him pay him.”

“It IS the servers responsibility to stop serving customers if they appear to be out of control, heavily intoxicated OR a threat to other patrons. I well understand his not wanting to get into a fight and that is why he should have called the police to have him tossed from the bar. I believe this refers to Conneticut servers...I am guessing the extra that was awarded was due to disabilities the patron incurred.
Connecticut law provides that if a person, either by himself or his agents (such as the bartenders), sells liquor to an intoxicated person and the intoxicated person thereafter injures someone as a result of his intoxication, the injured person can recover up to $250,000.00 from the seller of the alcohol.”

“Bartenders,owners and private citizens (parties & Barbeques held at private homes) have been found responsible for serving too much booze to a drunk patron whom then gets in accident.
The "Server" has the ability to stop serving, and call the POLICE when things get out of hand. I doubt Mr Mayor went from calm demeanor discussing Baseball to a out of control violent drunk in a heartbeat, why did no one in the bar (staff) see the mounting situation ??
Bars are RESPONSIBLE for maintaining CONTROL in their establishment at all times. Picture a fight at a Football,Hockey, Baseball game, Security and Police are on it in a FLASH, dragging out the trouble makers, Why should a BAR be any Different ??”
Brian Corvello on Jun 28, 2013 at 13:03:20
“Uh, maybe you should know, a bar cannot serve liquor to someone who is clearly intoxicated. That's illegal. They could lose their liquor license for doing that.”

“They kept serving him when he was soused and picking a fight. If they wanted to save 4 million $ they would have tossed him on the street”
“The 'realness" factor is when a man ejaculates. It feels the same whether you are using porn and your right hand man or whether you are using a hooker, stripper. You can get off faster online because only you know how you feel as opposed to another person.”

“Are you speaking from experience? Because my experience, completely contradicts yours.
And who wants to get off faster? For me, the journey is just as fun, if not more fun, than the climax...”
“There is no entry requirements to becoming gay. All one has to do is to decide they are anxious to enter any warm orifice that is offered up to them. Or agree they are anxious to let any stranger enter any of their orifices. Pretty simple really.”
