Talking about acceptance, on race relations,helping hands,& freedom of speech. One particular person, who was troubled, came into peoples lives in Eureka, by ways of: School, Friendship,A Place to Live, and Dating. He violated, and abused his friendship, and place to stay, by "biting the hand,that fed him". He stole anything that wasn't tied down,and took whatever he could. His short escapade was ended in an accident in Spring of 2010. A teacher at E.H.S. & Eureka resident, made a verbal statement about the Deceased accident victim, and was "Fired". The young driver of that vehicle, Matt Haley,was charged in a "wrongful death" suit, and unable to bear the pain,tragically ended his life, this past week, all because of one individual, that came into everyones life in Eureka.

Did you ever stop and think that his family would find this and how hurtful it is to read something like this? Do you have nothing better to do with your life than post hateful things about someones loved one?

I happened across this Topix post and unless I read the 4 previous postings incorrectly, I'm under the impression that Matt took his own life after not being able to handle the fact that he was accused of a wrongful death from an accident which occurred earlier this year. It seems to me that the original poster was not accusing Matt of anything but stating how another person had negatively affected everyone's lives in which he had come into contact with in Eureka...the person which Matt was accused of causing his death. Who is the person that passed in the accident? Is that whom "Here Today" was so negatively speaking?

@Reader- It does not matter who they were talking about, its that they said hateful things about someone who has passed and was loved very much. Matthew was my only brother, I don't for one second blame the young man who this person is talking about or any one else who may have influenced him. Everyone has their demons, they were not horrible people and should be remembered for their good hearts. I just think its disgusting that someone could say a thing like that.

After reading the first post I was like all of you in disbelief about what was said. However upon reading the other comments I reread the first post and had to agree with what Reader was saying. The first post is not about Matt, but rather the passenger whom Matt was driving whose name I will not mention since such things were said about him. I had the privilege of playing soccer with Matt in the 7th and 8th grade on a very good recreational team. Matt was a staple in the offense along side myself and a few others. He was an excellent athlete, especially given his size and the fact that he was a year younger than the rest of us. Having known Matt, he wasn't a bad kid, and although I didn't agree with everything he did, I wouldn't deem him worse than any other kid his age. I am a good friend of the brother of the passenger and granted he may not have been the best kid, to say those kind of things post death is disrespectful. To speculate the negative influence he had on Matt and others and say that he was the reason for Matt's death is going way too far on another level and is plain ignorant and inconsiderate. I often go back to the days of playing soccer on that team and cherish being able to play along side and pass the ball to Matt, wishing I could somehow go back to that.
