Involentary manslaughter should be added to the charge since the young man was killed as a result of the Wilmington man's actions.

There are some people out there who think if they give kids alcohol at home then they won't drink it elsewhere. How bout' they take a little time and educate the kid about alcohol and why they shouldn't "NEED" to drink as a teenager. Most of the kids I knew growing up did drugs and drank. I didn't feel pressured to do so because I didn't think they were cool and didn't look up to them in the least. They were just a bunch of idiots with low self-esteem who were convinced everyone would think they were cool if they did something they weren't supposed to do. Most of the "Cool" kids grow up and make nothing of themselves. Then they get depressed and become alcoholics because no one thinks they're cool, anymore. This teenager should have never felt it was necessary to drink alcohol. Someone, besides the man who supplied it, failed him.
