It's possible investigations would show alcohol wasn't a factor here. I certainly won't be jumping to conclusions. But whenever alcohol is a factor, it's important to find out where the alcohol came from. This is due to dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Getting folks the help they need and holding a negligent business accountable are both noble priorities. Were steps taken here to make sure the victims and families involved are getting all the facts?
