Commentary on El Corral Bar Shooting in Fort Worth

I often have folks contact me after incidents like the one described here. They want to know if the bars in these shootings have any responsibility. Just to be clear, I don't know anything about this specific bar without digging into their records. But generally speaking, a property owner could be responsible if there was any reasonable way they could have prevented this.

Typically, a violent episode just isn't controllable. Even with security, there's only so much a business can do to stop someone with ill intentions, especially if it's spur of the moment. However, some businesses--not just bars--prove to be hotbeds for crime and violence. As such, incidents like shootings can become a predictable hazards for visitors. That could mean the owners have a responsibility to make their property safer or to take every possible step to warn visitors of the danger.

Like I said, I can't say right now how all that would apply to this specific incident. However, I'd say that anyone seriously hurt in a situation like this deserves to know who all may be responsible for those injuries, especially if doing so could get them much needed help.
