The whole school feels sorry for what happened to Boots and his family. We think that the people that did this to him need to pay for the consnquences and the people at the party that where drinking alcohol.

The girls that hit him deserve to be punished big time. I would not let him off the hook for anything! They need to pay and so do the people at the party. They had no reason to leave him lay there. They should have realized that they were going to be in much bigger trouble if they didnt stop! This is unbelievable!!!

The people whom did this to Boots shouldn't just loose their lisences but should go to juvie for it until they are old enough to go to prison. I know they are sorry but it shouldn't have happened they could of saved his life if they would of stoped and called it in instead of going on like they did i know they were scared and they didn;t know what they hit but they thought it was a deer that they hit. But it wasn't it was Boots that is shocking and very upseting to the school and his fellow classmate and friends and family.

I can't believe someone could do this. Those girls should get punished for what they did. There was a chance for Boots to live if they actually stopped and called it in. Instead they drove on off like nothing happened. I don't c how they can live knowing they did that horrible thing.
