The Commonwealth of Virginia’s Attorney’s Office for the City of Richmond is investigating a shooting of a 22-year-old man to determine if this was or was not a Richmond wrongful death, according to NBC12.com.
Police said they were forced to shoot the 22-year-old at the end of a five-hour standoff at a Richmond home and that this was not a Richmond wrongful death.
Do you think the length of a standoff should determine if someone is shot and killed? Do you think these police officers were justified in this shooting and that this was not a Richmond wrongful death?

Two are dead and several are injured after a 7-year-old wrecked a boat into a pier in Virginia, according to The Washington Post.
The boy’s mother, a 35-year-old Virginia woman, was on board with three others when the boat crashed. The woman died of severe trauma of the head.
It’s not illegal in Virginia for a child to operate a boat, but an adult could be charged with reckless boating if something such as a Virginia wrongful death were to occur.
Who do you think is responsible for the Virginia wrongful deaths of those on this boat? Do you think laws should be passed about children piloting boats to prevent Virginia wrongful deaths?

A six-year-old child died during a visit to a dental clinic, which had been investigated as a possible Richmond wrongful death.
According to KTVR, the state medical examiner determined he suffered an irregular heartbeat caused by the removal of a breathing tube.
The child went into cardiac arrest after undergoing anesthesia while having caps put on several teeth at Virginia Commonwealth University’s pediatric dental clinic in Richmond.
He was pronounced dead a short time later at VCU Medical Center.
Do you think the Richmond child should have undergone a physical before receiving this medical procedure? Do you think the dental clinic took all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the child?
