    Last month we profiled an illegal alien felon who had made nearly $200,000 by mass-filing frivolous lawsuits against L.A. restaurants.

    But that was just about a creep trying to game the system. This is truly disgusting.

    An illegal alien in Colorado is suing several first responders who took part in rescuing him last September, when he became trapped in his car during a flash flood.

    They saved Roy Ortiz’ life — and he is suing them, for not getting him out fast enough.

    The document, lists Boulder County sheriff’s deputies, a member of the Westminster dive team, Broomfield and the North Metro Fire Rescue District as potential defendants.

    On Sept. 12, Ortiz’s vehicle was washed off the road, and the rushing waters flipped the car upside down. It took North Metro Fire Rescue about two hours to bring Ortiz to safety. Ortiz now claims that rescuers were negligent in their duty because they should have extracted him from his car faster.

    What I think they should have done, had they been able to foretell the future, would probably be frowned upon as "unChristlike" ... so I won't say it.

    As bad as this is, it is even worse, IMHO, that something like this would even get to court.
    It says more about our society that this is even speculated seriously than it does about a gold-bricker like this guy!

    75 years ago or so,this guy would have been tarred & feathered and run out of town; today some lawyer will gladly help him fleece other poor souls.

    I was thinking the same thing--or something similar. If he has another life-threatening situation, don't get there in time.

    I once read about a man who broke into a warehouse through the skylight. He fell and was injured and sued the warehouse owner, and he won $250,000. Who said it doesn't pay to be a criminal?

    I think that the warehouse that you are talking about was a school and that he was trying to steal a floodlight when he fell through a skylight that had been covered with tar until money became available for its removal. He broke his leg and won a lawsuit. In the old days, the police would have told him to lie still while they tried to find a doctor....
