Where is the accountability?

Robert Lach | Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Dear Editors:

What must be determined in Declan Sullivan’s death is the individual responsible for him being over 40 feet in the air in a device that was not to be used in winds over 25 mph. The space shuttle Challenger blew up because one man at NASA wanted it to fly in weather that was too cold for its components so that President Reagan could use the success in his State of the Union address. That man was a bully and people died because of him. If we have another bully on campus responsibe for Declan’s death, punishment should be swift.

Thank you,
