Should bar owners be held partially responsible for accidents caused by patrons?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 30, 2002
“Nope. Individuals should be responsible for their own actions.”
“Yeah, I do. I’ve seen too many times where it’s inappropriate for the bartender to keep serving and serving when they should cut them off.”
“No, I don’t. Other businesses would not be held responsible for irresponsible customers. It’s solely the individuals responsibility to act responsibly.”
“No. I believe in the responsibility of the individual if that individual is going to expect privileges and take risks. You don’t blame the knife maker if someone kills her husband with a big knife.”
