The more anyone on here says anything to Karl the more he says... it everyone will just let him be and look like the half brained unsympathetic moron of a person that he is then he will have nobody to argue with. And I'm saying this with all the love for God and Jesus that I have in my heart and YES I AM A CHRISTIAN!!!!

May God be with the family and friends of this young man during this time and give them peace... and with the farmer that owned the cattle.

Witness to this terrible wrote:
I was a witness to this accident as it happened and I can assure you all that the owner of this cow was sickened when he arrived at the scene. As for the young man, he was not alone when he died. My sister went down in the field where his car can to a stop and she kept talking to him until emergancy help could arrive. He passed just seconds after their arrival. Please stop this bickering back and forth! It's senseless and as being the person who seen it happened and could do nothing to save this poor mans life it is extremely hard on my sister and myself not to mention what you are doing to the family whom is obviously reading this. My prayers goes out to all of his family, friends, owner of the cow, and the Deputy that had gotten injured getting down to the scene and the medic that also got injured.
You and your sister are very kind. I'm very glad to know that a kid I knew so well wasn't alone that night. It is very sad to know that this happens ALL THE TIME, because it should not. I never realized that even when I had lived in Chelsea. From where I am from, livestock are kept where they should be, and they are not owned by careless "farmers".

No one hurts more than his family does. They have to live with this for the rest of their lives while everyone else can carry on. Remember that.

You obviously have no soul. Putting something like that on a man's OBITUARIY! You probably think that it is funny as well. Is it funny that a man died in an accident? Think if it was someone you knew. Would it be funny then?! NO! Think before you put stupid comments on something as serious as this. My Aunt was the one who was with this man when he died and for you to have this much disrespect is sickening! People like you are why others look at Oklahoma and the U.S.A. and call us trashy. You have no respect! Grow a pair and act like a man because I'm sure that hasn't once crossed your mind!

I am originally from Mayes County.
To his family: I am so very sorry. What a freak accident and a tragedy. You will be in my prayers. It sounds bizarre, but I am glad you have his child to continue his memory on this earth. Love that child and watch him/her grow into the wonderful person his father was. It's heartbreaking to know the baby will never know his father, but you can keep his memory alive by telling that baby how much his Daddy loved him/her.

However, I am confused. If your dog gets out and bites someone or becomes a nuissance they are picked up by animal control and you are responsible for the dogs actions. You pay a hefty fine and are open to lawsuits if that animal hurt someone. It doesn't matter what kind of fence you had in place, etc. Why are livestock owners not held responsible for the actions of their animals? It really makes no sense. Domestic animal owners have clear laws they are required to follow. What is the actual law for livestock owners? Any animal can breach a fence and the owner of that animal is responsible. I personally feel the livestock owner is 100% responsible and should be required to pay for any and all damages, including the emotional distress his family is suffering and lost wages, due to his death. That's why we all home owners and land insurance. It's a cop-out to say "I didn't the cow was out" or "it breached the fence". That statement doesn't work on domestic animals, why it is allowed for livestock? Their size alone is a threat to anyone if they escape the area you have provided to house them. Does the law need to change? I am tired of frivilous lawsuits, but in this case, I would sue the cows owner. The wife and child will need financial help for many years and the owner is responsible. If I were on a jury, I would have no problem holding the cows owner responsible and ordering him to pay.
Again, what a tragey and I am truly sorry for your loss. God will guide you through this and give you the guidance you need. Trust in him, lean on him and listen to him. My prayers to all of you.

One more thing... to the lady who took it upon herself to go sit with this young man during his final moments, I commend you. You are clearly a kind soul. If this were my family member, I would find great comfort in knowing someone was with my loved one and he didn't die alone. You are one classy and brave lady!! I wish there were more people like you in this world. Thank you for getting involved and being this mans companion when he needed someone more than ever. You will be traumatized from you saw but you will recover. God will reward you for your selfless act. Blessing to you.

I hope you don't refer to yourself as a christian! You must live a sad excuse for a life. Compassion...do you have any? Sometimes I think your comments are funny (rarely) but most often I think you are truly disturbed. A young man lost his life, NO ONE wants to eat that fricken cow!!!

I would happily grill the cow and eat it, but I'd rather it was sent to the Salvation Army or a homeless shelter. No, I do NOT consider myself a Christian, I've seen way too many vile hypocritical bigots who are in that club. If I were to die in a crash with a cow or deer or any other edible animal I sure as H would HOPE it would go to some good use rather than be allowed to rot on the road.

You don't like my comments because they are based on facts and honesty, something that's hugely at odds with most of what passes for 'christianity' these days.

Oh, horse s---...you never heard of this guy until today. Do you actually think we all believe you just 'happened' to come across this forum? All these hangers-on who chime in as the 'grieving relative', the 'best friend' or 'former teacher' every fu--ing time there's a tragedy are just like the little girls who post on youtube and those other sites that cater to maladjusted juveniles, to give them a chance to "be" someone for a moment.
I had a pair long before you were a gleam in the mailman's eye, little idiot child.

Mending that fence would've been cheaper than the law suit that's sure to be filed.
There is no grounds for a law suit. There is no liability in Oklahoma for a wandering cow, check out the state statutes. I did. There is no liability for either party. It is a SOL sorry out of luck. I think this is wrong but it is the law.

I see Krul Karls remarks on here frequantly. He can't help himself, he's an idiot. He's also an Athiest and doesn't give a rats **** about anyone. Go figure.
Karl, for once could you shut the F up? Cody's fiance has had way more than her share of heartbreak. His grandmother is devistated as well, so please go pick on someone else this time.
Emmy, I'm so sorry you and Cody's grampa saw this. I love you.

You can't even spell 'atheist', you clueless little prat. NOTHING I said was in the faintest manner detrimental to this Cody person. I simply hoped the dead cow would be used to feed some hungry people instead of being left to rot. I know you 'christians' aren't much interested in helping the living, but that's why I departed that sick belief system long ago.

Obviously you are the ignorant one. The fact is that in accidents like this when an animal (even very large ones) are hit by vehicles the meat is almost always completely destroyed and unedible because of the trauma.
Why are you getting so defensive? It makes me sad for you that when you read a story like this, the first thing you think is something like that! And WOW!!! You're gonna jump to attacking the possibility that I am a Christian!? Real mature!

I don't know why you're a liar, but you sure are. Most civilized states have laws permitting the use of 'road kill'. There's no reason why more than a small amount of meat on a cow would be unusable...you can take your pontification and shove it up where your pig breakfast came out, you moronic piece of offal.

well honestly I think you may be a man without a soul, forget the dang cow. A young man has passed away. Could you possibly have a kind word for his family? Please surprise me and appologize to his family for your insensitive remark. If you are concerned about feeding the hungry I suggest you spend time volunteering at one of the many places that provide meals for the unfortunate.

Karl, YOU and everyone else are doing the same thing as those "little girls" on YouTube. You are putting all these remarks to make yourself look like someone and it's working. You have made this entire thing about you instead of who it was focused on in the first place. The same for everyone else, it isn't about you. This is a form for everyone to say what they need to say. This man's family can get on here and see the crude remarks you all are posting while they are grieving. Why waste your time on all the childish game. The majority of people commenting this didn’t even know the man and aren’t even focused on him. It has now all turned into a “Who can bash, Karl”(which is understandable with some of the remarks) but what is the point? Can’t everyone settle their differences and focus on the fact that a man has lost his life in a tragic accident?

that's good Karl. They will be expecting you in hell then. You're probably a loner and everyone hates you that's why you spat this crap.
