"High and mighty? why because i'm not willing to endanger the lives of myself and others? Do i have to do something dangerous and stupid to be classified as a common person?" No, just be a little more understanding, like us common people tend to be.
"No one is saying he is a bad kid and did it on purpose but 80 miles per hour? in a residential zone nonetheless? we're not talking about on a freeway here." You've obviously never have been in that situation, which is a good thing, but again, he who hasn't walked the walk has little room to talk the talk.
"Which gets back to my original point which has been blown pretty far off subject by this point. i am not out to hang Heatley, but I'm not gonna feel sorry for him either. There are much worse off people who DIDN'T bring their situations on themselves. So to get back to my original post, i'm not gonna shed a tear for him. He got what he asked for which is unfortunate because it happens to too many people." So he asked for this, plain & simple, no need to go any further than that comment right?
"I'm not on a high horse, everyone makes a million mistakes a day. i aint here to preach heavnes wrath, but i am here to say that people need to start taking responsibilities such as having a liscence more serious. when you get that little card it means you know better then to do this. We're not talking about him losing control in a rain storm or blowing a tire and misjudging his correction, we're talking about someone who sped through a residential area and nearly killed one of his best friends. no one thinks it was on purpose but getting liscenced in something means you are supposed to know better." The kids a bad driver, we're all well aware of this. In fact, I think its amazing that with all the teenage/babyfaced young athletes who make tons of money that this doesnt happen more often. These kids never have had ANY formal driving lessons, much less drive a regular 4-door sedan or something to that effect. They go right for the Ferrari/Porsche after at least 2-3 full years of driving up & down campus
Outside of not knowing his limits in a car, the kid is exemplary in every aspect of his life, read up about him, you'll find out. To treat him the same as some thug who drag races or a drunk(oh, society never forgives them) is B-S!
Again, the jailtime is absolutely NOTHING compared to what the guy will have to overcome in his heart/head knowing he caused this tragedy. It may sound like BS to some, but if you knew the guy, not just the player you'd understand.
