I call bullshit on that. If I'm in target practice and I go bonkers and shoot some poor sap in the head, its not the fault of whatever I saw that inadvertantly freaked me out or the instructors for giving me a gun because that was the whole point of the excerise. No one in the room was expecting Armory to freak out to the extent that she did.

If the reason you went bonkers in the first place is a DIRECT result of a complete absence of safeguards from the instructors then yes of course it's their fault.
