So apparently you choose not to address how you got from THEY SHOULD pay $1,000 to THE COST is $1,000. What a surprise.

HWS could do this (delay response until after an investigation), at the risk of the delayed response putting someone in danger - is that what you are suggesting, that student lives are somehow worth less because they happen to be in an environment where false alarms occur more frequently? Would you apply this metric to the Courtyard Apartments, also a source of false alarms?
