Stupid Lawsuits

Say what you will about the Israeli practice of destroying the homes of suspected suicide bombers - that's open for discussion. But if someone wants to protest this practice by standing in front of the D9 dozer that's charged with executing the job and gets her dumb ass run over in the practice, it doesn't seem like Caterpillar has a lot of liability in the matter. That hasn't stopped her family from suing.

It should go without saying that anyone who stands in front of this thing, with an operating weight of 50 tons, probably forfeits any claim of liability. And, uh, it's got a top speed of 7.3 MPH. Kinda reminds me of that steamroller scene from the first Austin Powers movie.
