Danny is my best friend in the world.
He is my heart and soul...and I know Danny would never have done this intentionally. And I completely agree.
This situation IS very hard for EVERYBODY so no one should be saying anything bad about Danny.
Steve will be missed very much and he was a good man and we are all very sorry for your loss. We know you are hurting and we wish we could bring him back... But Danny is sorry. He's not a bad person like people are making him out to be and he is paying for his mistakes.

And he should pay for his mistake. Just because you are sorry doesn't mean you should not be punished.

and he is being punished. he is paying for his mistake.
dont ever think he's doing anything less.
he has to live with this everyday of his life for the REST of his life.
AND he is doing his time. just letting all the people who dont know anything about danny at all and thinks he is a bad person that he didnt do this on purpose!

Danny is a great person would do anything 2 help any 1 just like that day he was helping his grandmother. i think if he would have been a pill poper or crak head he would have only got a little slap on the hand but u take someone like danny who does not use drugs and had a job and not asking anyone 4 a hand out gets screwed yes it is very bad what happend but there is not 1 person on here that f u n there life only dif. is u dident get cought. Danny stood up like the man he is and took responceabilety 4 what he did so oscarmom u can F OFF!!!!!!! So Danny u hang n there u will b out soon 99% of the public thinks u got screwed anyway!!! U have the suport of the people!

Oscar is my dog you nice people. I really doubt 99% of people believe you can drive recklessly, kill a person and not be punished. Maybe he will be a more responsible person when he gets out, but not if he's got ignorant people like you guys telling him that he got screwed by being punished.
