Starting to understand this now. After reading your comment medassist and then reading what questioner, questioned. That sounded weird, but, maybe this isn't about just protecting the family, maybe it's about protecting the truth.

I don't understand your need to be so nasty and rude. Yes I am a medical assistant, I believe that everyone is entitled to there opinion. I also have children that drive and their friends. I don't like what is happening when these young people die. Would I love to see it stop? Absolutely. I don't believe that this young mans family and friends need to see your rude comments, or anyone elses. They are dealing with enough. As for the remark about hurting his family. I didn't state anything that wasn't a fact, he was closing, meaning working. The time the accident happened was not correct so I was stating that. I have no desire to get into an argument on here. I know some of the family so on there behalf I am asking that you be respectable in your comments as you were not there. No ones knows what John was thinking and why he made the choices that ended his life. His family will be dealing with this for the rest of their lives. Its a terrible thing when a young person dies.

Now I'll be inconsiderate again, but he left, after working at the family business, that drunk? No one stopped him??

"Corrections- He was leaving his family business after closing for the NIGHT..it was MIDNIGHT not noon."

Why is that important to you? In fact, for somebody who is contending you care about this family, your own comment harmed that family. Did you think about that before you wrote it?

Instead of making this an assault on me. Make it assault of what is killing these young kids. You might really just save a life medassist!

medassist, this is a newspaper, not a condolence page.

This senseless tragedy occurred back in January of this year. At such time, I paid my respects and offered my condolence to the family. Now exactly how long do you think we need to wait and continue to bury our heads in the sand before we start coming up with solutions to prevent these senseless DEATHS?

Taking into consideration that since that senseless tragic death occurred, how many has happened back to back after this one? When do we begin take this serious that we have kids out here and innocent people are dying? There all in that specific age group or have you not been paying attention.

I do find it interesting that a name as medassist as your using would not be stomping mad about this? I could get really nasty and opinionated why I believe there would nothing in it for you to gain or benefit from preventing any of this. How many people are you hoping will keep it to themselves and shut the door on this?

Corrections- He was leaving his family business after closing for the NIGHT..it was MIDNIGHT not noon. I am so very sorry for this young mans family and friends. Yes it was a poor choice He made but, don't judge what you don't know. You were not there. Shame on you for making all these negative comments when there is a tragedy like this. I think you should be banned from commenting. Respect others.

I'll pray that the next victim isn't you Dreamer or somebody YOU love dearly. But then why should I care about my family or my community, when the pathetic attitude in this community just happens to be, he's dead, big whoop, move along people! Back to business as usual.

You are right Dreamer, enough is enough. You can't change ignorance when ignorance reins. I surrender. Happy now?

Who was also driving drunk? That watched this kid crash and left him there for dead because they didn't want to be there when the cops arrived and smelled alcohol on their breath? What happened?

What could have stopped all this? Does anybody care?

Maybe we need to start asking these questions. Where was at prior to this terrible crash? Who was he with? His friends? At a bar? What wasn't that had this kid barrelling down a roadway at this speed? Trying to impress himself? Who was he racing with?

There are so many unanswered questions?

questioner, it doesn't matter. Don't worry about it. You said what you felt and that matters.

23 year old boy, is gone. The fact is he was drinking and driving at high rate of speed. That is as clear as it gets. Another one, just the other night in the paper. Repeatedly over and over and over. What do we have to do to stop these senseless deaths? What people forget? When these things happen it hurts of us. Not just that family. All of us. In all different types of ways.

But I'm sorry the paper had the time wrong--they said 12:40pm--noon hour.

I personally would not have asked who was with him nor said it sounded as tho he had a drinking problem otherwise.

Not that the time matters when drinking and driving, but I wouldn't have made those particular comments.

Councilwoman, whether he was drunk at midnight or drunk at noon, does that matter? I don't think anybody denies this family will suffer from this. I just don't want anymore people to die like this. I don't want to see another family suffer this. It is out of control.

"stunning example of why people don't care to participate in their community."

Fighting to save lives? That is a stunning exapamle why people don't WANT to participate in their community?

OMG Grant. Are you flipping for real? YOU are not disagreeing with me because it is about right and wrong. You only disagree because it is me. It is not about the issue it never is with you.

You are the most despicable person I have ever seen. Kids are dying Grant and those numbers are growing. What is wrong with you? I don't want any parent to suffer this. When does it matter to you? What's a matter you afraid if people keep noticing that it might interfere with you child games you play? The more these people die the more the Government will get involved. I thought you loved your freedoms. What is next? The statistics grow and they start reducing speed signs. Limiting sales of alcohol? Insurance rates are increasing. More cops.

You're pathetic. I lost my best friend in a traffic accident 9 years ago, I know what it feels like. The point is, there is no reason for you to make these comments public. It's despicable. Don't you claim to be a Christian anyways? Where is your forgiveness, where is your sympathy? What is done is done, isn't it God's plan or is that just when it's convenient for you? You're a sick person to hide behind a pseudonym and attack the life of a young kid who made a mistake and paid the ultimate price for it. Haven't he and the people who cared about him suffered enough? Just let it go, keep it to yourself.

"Why can't you keep comments like these to yourselves?"

Saving lives is a sin right Grant? Questioner is right, people need to hear truth and we need to stop beating around it because somebody's feelings might be hurt. You think I don't feel for his parents? Grant, I don't see any family go through this. Is that hard for you to comprehend? People that go there happy little way and don't want to do everything to prevent these tragic deaths are despicable and low class people.

"The bottom line here is, regardless of what happened, it's over."

That is an attitude to be proud of. It's over, move along people. Big whoop, he's dead, it's over. End of story.

Grant, I pray to gone YOU never lose somebody you love to this ignorance. The pain is horrible. God help you Grant.
