This unlawful wretch should never be bonded or released or paroled for the rest of its life. Hopefully the prosecuters, juries and judges in Charlotte will have the decency to do the right thing for our society and keep it locked up forever.

Pat was my closest friend since I was in the 4th grade. He was such a good kid and a cannot remember ONE dull moment with him. He was always smiling. All the time. I am going to miss him dearly. As for Petrone. I think we should drop him in front of a big body luxury sedan and hurl it toward him at 80mph. He deserves the worst possible punishment. He was too stupid to learn his lesson the 1st 2-3 times. Worthless. This is so senseless. I never thought that this would happen to somebody this close to me. I was too used to just hearing about this kind of thing. and to the Gay family, We will always support you. I love you all (Tom, Pam, Chris, Eric) my heart goes out to you. Just keep them in your prayers, especially my brother Peter, who had to see it happen.

I woke up that morning and saw that car parked in the parking lot of our apartment complex, I was in shock! no human being drunk or not drunk could possibly not realize what had happened by the damage done to that vehicle. That was parked perfectly in the parking spot between the lines!!!
To the family and friends of the young man killed my prayers are with you and to everyone who could support this animal! Think of your own children and would you want this man driving in your neighborhood around your children???

"Revoked License" means they took his license after one of the prior convictions. And, he probably can't register a car either. So, he was driving a "friend's car" which means the car owner could be/should be held liable, too. Generally, you are legally responsible for illegal acts committed with your car if you gave permission to drive it. It will be interesting to see how that plays out because the guy with the new Cadiallac probably has money. Certainly a waiter a small bar-restaurant in Cornelius can't afford a Caddy.
you have a [point a BIG POINT!
