RIP girls. I would encourage anyone that is considering to get nasty on this link to perhaps think about that first. This could be your child easily. The one that drove or one of those passed away....Be kind. I am quite certain the driver is suffering too....Say nothing if it includes your judgement.....All are grieving , ALL!!!

Sorry, the driver is suffering only as she realizes that she will lose her job and might go to jail. If that driver had an ounce of conscience she would not have made this her THIRD drunk driving offense. No matter that she pled the others down, she drove drunk and got caught. She needs to rot in jail for her crime of murder.

Hard to be sympathetic to someone who has had two prior DUIs. My heart goes out to all families involved

Right. Let's be compassionate like the judges who let the driver off the two previous times with no jail time and not even a suspended license. Now they have let her out again as if an upside down car, two dead people, alcohol on her breath and two previous offenses are not enough to hold her while the investigation is completed. For all we know she is out driving around now looking for a drink. I've seen estimates that people get away with driving drunk about 80 times on average before they are caught. This driver has 3 offenses. Considering that she worked at a bar who knows how many hundreds of times she drove drunk before this fatal accident happened.

Also let's not teach children to wear their seat belts and be wary of who they drive with. We wouldn't want to upset people by having that conversation. Let's just grieve and act as if things just happen to anyone and no one is responsible for their actions and that actions don't have consequences. Just look at how the article is written. The car veered. The car crashed. As if it just happened. No sorry, the driver failed to maintain control because they were impaired and speeding and didn't consider the consequences.

Sorry but bad things happen to nice people when they don't use good judgement and if you don't want this to happen to your children you'd better teach them to use some judgement. It isn't bashing the victim to point this out. It is allowing their unfortunate event to serve as a lesson to others.

News for some of you. There are plenty of good parents that teach as much as they can, and sometimes "Kids" do what they want anyway. Parents are not always to blame. Tired of Parent Shaming when I know plenty raised right and turned Left regardless!

Parent shaming. That’s a new one. Extending the mantel of victimhood to parents and absolving them of responsibility. Who said anything about blaming parents. If parents do their best to teach their children then they are not to blame. The comment was about people who don’t want to have that conversation with their children because of feelings.

Dear Mike, we know all of this. We are having the important conseqences convos with our kids. We don't need to have you get ugly and bash us over the head as if we don't get it. That's all we ask. Jerk.

K I agree. Clearly people aren't realizing the bigger issue here.

Did we not learn from the Kate S murder trial result that repeat criminals are not responsible for their actions? They are victims of unfortunate consequence

I would ask those who ask for so-called "compassion" here to ask themselves one question. What if it were you burying your child today? I suppose now you are going to tell all of us that you would show this same "compassion"?
