    Well put. That is exactly what is going on; the victims become their own
    worst enemy, something that the defense counts upon. I have been guilty
    of this myself when, in shock, I realize that people who should have
    cared, could have prevented this, and could have remediated these
    situations, treated my son and I as though we were pieces of refuse to be
    pushed to the side of the road. Once, a Vietnam Veteran I have come to
    know told me, yeah, now you know how we felt when we came back, at least
    you got a body bag.

    But, the fact remains, that victims must realize that clear, concise,
    direct communication must be adhered to in these cases and that the
    defense will resort to tactics not unlike psychological warfare to win
    their case. I have cried more over this mold issue and what it cost my
    son and I than I did when I lost my father and husband(I guess that I was
    in shock and new that I must continue in order to provide for my son and
    myself, but at least I had my physical health and some mental health with
    the exception of the grief.) I had no control over the deaths, but I
    thought my contractual relations with landlords provided me with the
    protections afforded by statute as I struggled to become a participating
    member of society; I was wrong, as my subsequent forays into the court
    room proved, there is only the justice that money can buy. This
    realization, that I had no rights, and neither did my child, pushed me to
    near hysteria, the mental anguish was indescribable.

    But then I realize that if not for the terrible setbacks that I have
    suffered, the 'small-minded' people would never have been a concern for
    me, or a problem. As it is, I ended up having to deal with a class of
    people that for all intents and purposes, didn't exist to me. Too bad,
    especially for those who continue to suffer at their mercy. These are
    the folks that bring our society down.


    Sadly, our society has become calloused to the problems of others,
    especially when this has not affected them yet.
