Paul Wilson was found dead after buying a takeaway containing peanuts from a Indian restaurant. The restaurant owner is on trial for manslaughter after he took a “reckless and cavalier attitude to risk” and “put profit before safety”. The owner received repeated and numerous warnings that he was putting his customers’ health, and potentially their lives, at risk by not labelling his meals correctly.
The prosecuting attorney told the court that tragically for Paul Wilson, the owner took none of those opportunities and ignored all of the warnings he was given. Now he is facing criminal prosecution.
This brings us to Lamentations chapter 2.
