With 5 kids dead in the last six weeks, maybe it is time to raise the driving age to 18. Why not, we changed the drinking age from 18-21 and you have to be 21 to buy a pack of cigarettes...........I dont think a 16 yr old has developed a sense of responsibility at that age. The roads and highways are a lot different today than they were say 30 yrs ago....they were less crowded. (I recevied my license in 1975, yes I was 18, my father felt I was too young to drive at 16)

Just awful.. I do have to agree with Alan, the driving age is too young-should be 18.

You want to put the wreck on display at the high school? Do you have some sadistic need to endlessly punish the family, friends and classmates of those tragically killed in this accident?? How would you feel if your child's death scene were put on public display as you suggest? And please do not give us the "it couldn't happen to my child because..." because life happens. We can't change what has happened. It is time for compassion for those who have been impacted here, not calls for some sort of macabre display.

To the family, friends and classmates of those who have died, may God bless each of you. As the parent of teenagers I have cried over this tragedy, as have my teenage children. I can't even begin to imagine the grief you must be suffering.

Thanks "Bob". Well put and I will ditto all you said. I did not know these families well, but know how I have felt the last month or so. I cannot imagine what they have been going through and not a day has gone by the I haven't thought of them. I know this was a wake up call for my own children and their friends. I am sure not all have, but many have gotten the message.

Well according to mom it's the malls security fault for chasing the teens for doing something wrong. We should find that security guard and give him the death penalty. How dare he chase the teens after they were already caught once before for driving recklessly in the mall lot and were found again driving recklessly. Down with security for protecting innocent people from getting killed by reckless driving. This whole story is sad. Nobody wants to see anybody die. Unfortunatley the teen driver made a bad decision. We've all made bad decisions in the car. The only difference is we get to learn from them and the teens payed the ultimate price. God bless the famalies and friends of the teens.

I don't blame anyone. The kids obviously didn't think they would crash and mall security figured they were going to catch these boys. Both parties our for a little daring fun. I don't think anyone intended harm.
God bless the familys who lost these children. My sons aren't quite that old yet and I would like to constantly remind them they are not invincible. I see the point in putting the car where people will always be reminded...but yes, it isn't fair to the family.
The only negative to kids driving at 18 and not 16 is the parents would complain about driving them back and forth to a job. Well, isn't that a pretty good trade off instead of losing another child? Raise the age and raise insurance rates for kids under 20.

IS IT REALLY TRUE THAT MALL SECURITY CAUSED THIS ACCIDENT BY CHASING THESE KIDS?

I HOPE THEY'VE BEEN FIRED AND I HOPE THE FAMILIES SUE THE HELL OUT OF WESTFIELD FOR HIRING SUCH MORONS.

NOW YOU KNOW WHY MALL SECURITY IS NOW ALLOWED TO CARRY FIREARMS.

It does not matter how or why the end is the same and these familys are suffering .It is so sad that these young men were taken away.Nothing will bring them back but I just hope all their friends and other teens reading about the tragedy will think before speeding. Don't put your loveones through what their parents and loved ones are going through.
