    Not guilty, eh? Let’s see. He was abused, ignored and laughed at when he was 5 so that means he’s not responsible for the death of another human being
    while typing out a response to another moron. Modern convenience, ain’t it wonderful?

      You are a friggin ass! He is from a good family. He didnt get abused. That kid is a straight A student. Can you say that about yourself? He wasnt texting. It was an accident

    another entitled little brat who, like so many other young people today, thinks rules & law don’t apply to them. I have been driving accident-free for 45 years and would never consider trying to text while driving. This kid deserves jail time.

      Why dont you get the facts straight! You think just because he had a phone on him that he was texting? He wasn’t & it’s going to proved. This kid is a A student, a very good kid. He doesnt deserve jail time. If someone caused a vehicle homicide, they dont get jail time they get their license suspended. He’s young & doesnt have 45 years driving experience
