how do you adequately warn somebody that you are about to hit them if it is a accident?

This was a tragic accident. Saying that it's ok to sue someone just because they have money is a horrible thing to say. Part of what's wrong in this country is that we put a price on everything. I don't believe that you can put a price on a loved one, nor can you put a price on the amount of guilt that the employee feel for what happened. The reason there are no criminal charges is because this was an accident. My heart goes out to the family of the victim, it is an awful thing. And if there was anything I could personally do to help them, I would. All any of us can do, though, is keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
I would also like to address the whole illegal worker comment. While there are quite a few immigrants employed at Jumer's that speak in their own tongues, and may not have learned a lot of English at this point, they are not illegal. And, if you truely are a former employee, you know this. The majority are refugees from other countries that Jumer's employs thru a company called World Relief. Everyone I've come in contact with that was hired thru the organization is extremely hard working and friendly, and are going about becoming citizens. And again, if you are a former employee, you also know that everyone hired has to go thru a background search by the Illinois Gaming Board (IGB), if they are illegal, how could they manage it? I think you honestly need to think before you speak next time.
