I have no tolerance for drunk drivers. This drunk should be put in jail for a long time and NEVER be allowed to drive again. Driving is a privilege not a right. You must earn and pay for this right. This drunk has proven that he can not and does not take this reasonability as a person should. Therefore he should NEVER be allowed to drive again. There is plenty of public transportation he can use.

What ever happened to "zero tolerance" for DWI drivers that are under the legal drinking age?!

Parents, Parents..........How come you did not know what your children were doing? You should be held accountable as well. Hope you have an excellent insurance policy!

The whole situation is very sad, I have many feelings about it. One is that if the other kids were not drinking, WHY did they get in the car with the one who was and let him drive? Course we don't know if the others were not drinking. Why was the one (17) drinking? If the others were drinking, why were they? They are all way underage. Where were any of the parents? Why wasn't the passenger wearing a seatbelt, and his parents let him?(They have control over this or at least they should.) Why was the driver driving after 9 on a DJ license? Yes, I feel bad for the kids and their families and will pray for them, but WHY are so many WRONGS going on here????

they got what they deserved, i dont like seeing anyone get into an accident and hurt, especially at that age. irresponsibility is no excuse, and i think the driver and his parents should be punished as well. because his parents are just as at fault, as the 17yr old who was driving the car intoxicated.

Instead of offering these ridiculous OPINIONS we should be offering our prayers. These kids made a stupid mistake. Who of us has not- when we were their age??? Pray for these kids to live another day to learn from their mistakes and pray for the parents who received the call we all dread. There but for the grace of god go I.........

You suck too!!, Tell me what law enforcement is going to tell me I cannot lay down the rules if they reside under my roof? And besides this was about a 17 year old drinking and driving, what 17 year old has money to pay for his/her car and insurance, therefore the parents do have rights and responsibilities you damn fool.

I think the adults need to be held more responsible, but I don't mean the parents, I mean the adults that these kids got the drink from, and the adult that give the kid a gun that he shot the cop with. It had to be adults they got the stuff from, yet we blame kids and their parents.
