You do realize that the teen who died is not the driver that stole the gas as sped off don't you? There is a girl in critical condition as well. The 18 better not see the light of day for at least 10 years. He put a serious setback in his life but if he is strong enough, he can, with a lot of time and effort, make something of his life.

the parents of all involved need to take a long look in the mirror. a 14 year old girl pregnant? the 16 year old father? the 18 year old who had 2 burglary cases going on? why were these kids even out at 1 am? all three are to blame here. the 16 and 14 year old for putting themselves in that position, the parents for allowing their CHIDLREN to be out at 1 am and the 18 year old "man" who seems like a punk. no sympathy here at all. i'm just glad it wasnt me or my family that was killed. see ya!

I am worthless because I am happy that punk didnt kill me or my wife and baby? what part did you not agree with? you need to be more specific. where was i in the wrong? Odds are this wasnt the first time this thief did a gas drive off. i am sure bubba will great him when he gets to Anamosa when he begins his sentence.

You know i knew the 16 year old boy he is a freind of my son's. Yes he has a girlfriend that is having a baby. Which one of you didnt have sex at 16? Right or wrong.. Yes there was a 14 year girl in the car who is fighting for her LIFE!! what does it matter, why she was out. SHE WAS AND MAY DIE.. RIGHT OR WRONG.. Yes the parents maybe shouldn't let there children hang out with people who have done bad, I guess none of you had a bad friend growing up or none of you fought your parents on who your friends were going to be.. IT DOESN'T MATTER... The truth is that 3 families are DEVASTATED.. 1 has lost their only child, 1 still may and even if she doesn't die, may never walk again, another going to prison. He will never be the same.RIGHT OR WRONG!! ALL you judgemental people on here make me sick. People are hurting. DID you think about that before you put your cold hearted comments on here!! May Jesus forive you

And the one going to prison, let's hope he is not the same ever. He killed a friend over a tank of gas. What a P.O.S.

Devastation happens everyday. I lived my life as a youngster and was smart enough not to be in a situation like that. Never. My child is smart enough not to be in a situation like that. Guaranteed. My life will go on if that little girl dies. Its too bad if she does but will not affect me anyway what-so-ever. My family is my main concern. They did not crash into me so I am happy. I am ecstatic. With my joy comes someone elses sorrow. That's just the way it is. I dont make the rules.
