I Love The Smell Of Negligence First Thing In The Morning

In Raleigh, North Carolina, a defense attorney collapsed from an apparent heart attack while arguing a drunken driving case. Although bailiffs and police officers initiated CPR immediately and emergency emergency personnel arrived in less than six minutes, neither the courthouse nor medical workers were equipped with defibrillators. Ironically, the county had allocated money last year to purchase and mount four public AED's throughout the courthouse for just such an emergency. But due to typical bureaucratic b.s., this life saving equipment was not yet purchased because a "study" was needed to be done to ascertain the best location to store these units. Here's a stellar idea ... put them in the hallway! Even if located in the "wrong spot" ... at least they are on site and publicly visible! Having something that is slightly out of reach is better than not having it at all.
