Re "Court: Landlords liable for safety" (Our Region, Feb. 28): This is very sad and my heart goes out to the family for the loss of their child.

But instead of blaming others, why can't the family take the responsibility? Did they not know there was a pool? Did they not know there was no safety fence around the pool? Did they not know their child could open a door and head for the pool?

This was a great, but why don't people take responsibility anymore?
