Yes people he may have had a part to play in his death. But how cruel can you be. Don't you even care that maybe his family is watching all of this. Don't you think they know this. Answer my question people, and don't lie. How many times have do done something that you probaly should not be doing? And don't lie! see exactly my point. Sometimes we Just don't think,or learn from our mistakes. We were not made perfect. It's a sad, sad thing that someone had to learn this way and so young. Just take the experience and learn from it while you still have to change to do so. I don't think not he was stupid, I just think he made a very bad choice, like many of us sometimes.

A bad choice is going out partying when you should be studying for exams. A mistake is accidentally going thru a red light. A felony is stealing a motorcycle and taking off at high speed not caring whom he hit or hurt. In other words it was a criminal act and not a mistake. A mistake is something done unintentional. A mistake is not something done intentionally(stealing a bike).

How does anyone know that the motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed?
It is fact in the motorcycle riding community that the car-turning-left-in-front-of-t he-motorcycle scenerio is the most common.
WHY? Because car drivers do not look for motorcyclists, and therefore car drivers do not SEE motorcyclists!
Then, when the car driver says they did not see the motorcyclist, this only provides visions that the motorcyclist MUST have been traveling at a high rate of speed.
This is a bunch of crap.
The police should know better.
The news reporter also should know better.
How can this possibly be fact?
Had the car driver "SEEN" the motorcyclist, there would have been no accident in the first place.
Another motorcyclist dead.
We need to insitute awareness of motorcycles sharing the road into all driver training for these kinds of accidents to be reduced.

I would say that the accident investigation determined that it was a high rate of speed due to damage to the bike / car and debris field , also how far the rider was thrown.
I agree that many drivers are unaware of their surroundings , it happens to me multiple times a day , but there are those motorcyclists that also
show little regard to traffic safety . I also see that regularly . I love to ride motorcycles , but I will not do so in S Fla.

Wow, just because some one has an accident doesn't mean they were an idiot crotch rocket driver. First of all, it was a harley. Second he had a family, have some respect for the dead people. Comments on safety is one thing, insulting the dead is just poor taste.

I knew Joel. No, no, he wasn't my friend. i met him in Trinidad, one thing was clear about him is that he loved to race. Many times we(other people) told him he was going too fast but he wouldn't listen. His family was ignorant to the fact that Joel was not the safest of drivers and would get upset when you tell them that he speeds alot. what can we tell him now?

I knew Joel as a student at UTI and he was a very fine individual. He was an excellent student and a great person. This is a tragedy!! When a person that is actually a decent human being dies it is a tragedy. I would like to see how you stupid people would feel if this were your son, brother, father or sister. I have never seen such insensitive comments about a persons life. No wonder the world is so corrupt. None of you studpid people could have made the accomplishments that he made in life even if you lived to be 100 years old. He was an excellent person and had a heart of gold. Very intelligent unlike some of you idiots. I would never wish death on anyone because there is no coming back from that, but if this happens to your mother or father, I would like to see your face if someone wrote such comments about them on the internet.
