  2. Doug was a great student and he was a good friend. When I felt down, he always tried to do something to cheer me up. It sucks that he was killed and I miss him very much.

  6. Rafael Lopez deserves a life sentence. He doesn't even look like he has any remorse at all. Makes me so angry.

  11. We should process him under murder rather than simple accident law, so that he get what he deserved.

  12. I wish people would stand up to the source of the problem... alcohol. At this pointed, if you get a DUI you should not be able to buy alcohol... mark something on the license or ID but this is ridiculous. Innocent people gone because of this ignorance.

  15. Very sad news! These cases are increasing day by day. Drunk driving accidents are on the rise. Highway patrol, sheriff officers, and police officers are constantly on the look out for those who are being careless in their operation of motor vehicles. With tougher laws against drunk driving, if one of these careless individuals is pulled over and accused of drinking and driving, they face extremely harsh penalties. Those that are assumed to cause an accident due to drinking and driving are immediately charged with DUIs and DWIs and face severe punishments.
