How sad. Kids do the dumbest things, no matter their socio-economic status. My prayers go out to his family, as well the friends involved. Many of us have been blessed to live through our teens.

Do you think you are funny, or do you write **** like this to try to start arguments? Either way, you really need to look in the mirror and ask yourself if this is the person you really want to be.
This comment goes along with the mentality of the act which is reported on by the paper.

Really? What mentality was the young man who was killed when a retaining wall block fell off a truck and smashed through the windshield of the van he was traveling in exhibiting? I believe you referred to him as a "blockhead". You are not funny. You are a button-pushing troll, you have no idea what the scenario was in this story based on what was reported, as the info was minimal at best.

Typical trailer court behavior.
It's kind of like a gated circus community. Complete with the freak show and everything else.
I grew up in southeastern MN in the middle 60's, in a beautiful home, wonderful parents, every opportunity making for great memories. Just wanted you to know that as young, naive kids we did some very foolish things similar to this young man. These things could have very easily resulted in the death of one of us. It does not matter who you are, where you live, or your social economic status; accidents happen! NOT ALL young people are as smart as you think you are. Condolences to the family.

Who hasn't did something similar? A young man died, show a little respect.

Very sad! As many posters have already stated that every adult should be fortunate to have survived the risky stunts they did growing up. I look back at all the wild bike jumps I took (pre-helmet era), the rickety trees I climbed, and the daring hops off the gargage onto dubious piles of leafs and say thank God for not getting seriously injured. Zingbopper can go eat $_it!!

Another stupid mistake by a teenager. Cars are to be ridden in, not on.

To Rooster and BOBXRAY:

Stop pandering to zingbopper. He is obviously trying to get people to respond to his incredibly insensitive posts. i say it's bast to just ignore this low self-image piece of trash.

Nothing good happens in trailer parks. "Trailer" is no longer just a crappy place to live, its a lifestyle.

If your house has a flat tire, you live IN a trailer.

If you think its cool to cut your four-year-olds hair into a mullet, you ARE trailer.

For a full line-up of trailer people, go to

Its actually the reporting that should be chastised here, because all you libs who think these posts are "insensitive" are not understanding that the reporter really didn't need to mention that this happened in a trailer park...but they did!
