Families sue Blackwater

News | 11.10.2007 | 20:00 UTC

Families of Iraqis who died in a Baghdad shooting last month involving the US security firm Blackwater are suing the company for unspecified damages. The plaintiffs, represented by the Center for Constitutional Rights, say the firm violated US law and fostered a culture of lawlessness among its employees. The suit, which was filed in the US District Court in Washington, DC, says the contractor has "turned recklessness into profit at the expense of the lives of innocent civilians". 17 Iraqis died in the September 16 shootings. The Iraqi government says the incident was unprovoked, a charge Blackwater denies.

  • Yes, just go ahead and hopp on
    Delta Flight 123 from BagDiggityDad Airport and cruize over to the US Supreme court and file a lawsuit. and with your wage of 14 cents a day you should be able to afford a Plane ticket about the same time that we have regular flights from LAX to Iraq which will be around 2053. Have a nice flight!
