Unfortunately, we live in a society that not only accepts the consumption of alcohol; it promotes the consumption of alcohol. Beginning on a local level, many of Hickory’s public gatherings include alcoholic beverages, thus drawing larger crowds from neighboring towns whose own communities choose to ban alcohol consumption at their own events. Many of the local restaurants thrive/survive on alcohol sales. Telling most people having been legally served three or four drinks then telling him to stop is as giving a dog a pork chop and telling him, only eat half of it. After three or four drinks, I think most people would have the impaired judgment to make wise decisions about important matters like; driving. There needs to be more accountability on any city that not only condones this type of lifestyle yet, profits from it as well. There should be reliable alternative transportation readily available for anyone who has had too much to drink. There should also be more accountability on the owners of the establishments to monitor the patrons. Drink limits, withholding keys upon arrival, breathalyzers on the premises, etc. I am not by any means condoning what these young men have done and I am 100% certain, their day of reckoning will come if has not already. This observation is merely to shed light on a fraction of a much larger dilemma.

Each and every one of us would be in jail right now if we had von Drehle's rap sheet and documented driving habits. Good for him and his friends the local police and legal system are too chickensh-t and scared of the influence of his family to give him anything more than five minutes in time out for destroying someone's house, if even that.
Ask anyone that went to Saint Stephens about Brett. That kid has never lifted a finger his entire life unless it was to crack open a beer can or turn the key of an expensive car his dad bought him. Better yet, check out his Myspace. I won't link it here, but it's easy to find. Dude's hero is Hugh Hefner-says a lot about what life is about to him. To think he could have done so much with the privilege afforded to him due to the hard work of the elder von Drehles, yet he'd rather spend what should be the most productive years of his life partaking in destructive stupidity.

I went to the same school a Brett and I can say he is pretty much the definition of a Douchebag, I mean just look at his myspace page. He's always been a spoiled punk kid, and he always will be.

Really. So you you think you have a right to disrespect an entire family like that? You do not know the von Drehle's and have no right to say such things. I have not read this entire post but based on the last page I'm not going to either.

Funny how you mention Karma in a post SassyTiff. Why don't you stop hiding behind a screen name and tell me who you are. I am willing to bet you don't have many friends. Oh and I am a von Drehle under 35 and I'm pretty sure you don't know me.

Hey "A von Drehle"...thought you were going to quit reading posts? But since you are one (a vonDrehle), let me tell you what Wise Old Owl thinks: I think that the von Drehle's rank right there with the Burkes (Christian Tours). A few months back drunken Jonathan Burke (I think that was his name--anyway one of the Burke grandchildren) killed a woman as she was getting her mail out of her mailbox b/c he was driving drunk as a skunk). Well the VonDrehle dude is just like the Burke dude. Two rich families that the younger ones have had everything handed to them on a silver platter...never had to abide by the law...parents/grandparents have always "bought" the kids way out of trouble...they think they can run over people (literally and not literally). The "rich bitch" kids grow up to be low down human beings who think they are Gods. They don't care about anybody but themselves and killing another human is no more to them than me killing a fly on the wall.

MY HOPE WOULD BE THAT MR. BURKE AND MR. VON DREHLE WOULD ROT IN JAIL FOR THE REMAINDER OF THEIR LIVES HERE ON EARTH; THEN THEY FACE THEIR JUDGEMENT BY GOD ALMIGHTY...BUT IT WON'T HAPPEN B/C SAD BUT TRUE, THEIR FAMILY'S MONEY WILL BUY THEM OUT OF THE TROUBLE THEY HAVE CAUSED TO SO MANY OTHER LIVES. LISTEN UP, THERE IS A SPECIAL SPOT IN HELL FOR PEOPLE LIKE THIS, so stick this up your tailpipe, VonDrehle Family Member!

Well I can almost bet I know you. My name is Tiffany Moose. You see you are only doing the same...hiding behind your pathetic rich last name that makes you think you are someone special. What is your full name? And to the person above, Wise Old Owl, you feel the same as most people who have commented on this whole situation. Funny how the "von Drehles" are the only people who just dont get it. But you are right...its going to be a hot one down there. And to Ms. Von Drehle, whatever your name is...I have many many friends and I can promise you I am nowhere near as hated as most of you Brett, Heather (the younger ones) etc are. You all are a joke. Everyone knows it. But thanks for reading the posts. Did it hurt your feelings? How does it feel to know you are related to such an idiot?

Hey Sassy, I didn't read the first 3 pages of posts (only the last 5 or so when I found this blog), but I'm not surprised that I fall in the majority as far as the way people feel about the Von Drehle's. I don't have a problem with rich people who are decent people, but the rich people who feel so superior and who think they can do "whatever" and PAY their way out of it...that's my beef! I remember a few years back when this dude's mother (Ronnie V.D.) ran for school board...thought she had it wrapped up just because of who she was; but surprise, surprise--the word got out that she wasn't the type of person needed! It's high time people like this have to start accounting for their actions!

A von Drehle this is not name calling but will you admit Brett was wrong should take responsablity and suffer the consequences of the actions he chose to take.

Wealth does not equal "Above The Law"!! I know many wealthy people with what is referred to as "old money" who are good upstanding folks. Those people would NEVER take advantage of others but rather would take care to right the wrongs their families committed. I don't see this family doing that! That poor lady's house is still not fixed and they probably won't do a damn thing to repair it.

"The Law" you are correct. I actually come from a pretty well off family but I was raised and taught that my family worked very very hard to get where they are at. We are all very very giving people and actually most people have no idea that my family has "the old money" as you say. This whole situation has everyone outraged. Its not just a few "haters" "jealous people" whatever. I have many many posts throughout this thread because I feel so very stongly about it. Its just simply not right to think you can go and do crimes, treat people badly, break the law and get a slap on the wrist etc just because your family has money. When I say I know at least 2 of the VD below 30...trust me. I do. I have been around them numerous times but it didnt take long to figure out that they are trash. Money may be behind that name but these peoples morals and just hearts are trash. I seriously would call them insane. The good thing is much more of this and I really dont think money can even help them.

You can pay for school but you cant buy class. You can pay for alot of things but it doesnt buy you respect, integrity or character. We must all remember that. I would rather be broke and have my dignity and know that people in my community embrace me rather than walk around knowing everyone hates me.

Hey, "the law"...I agree with you. I feel for the poor lady whose house he messed up. Bitten by the rich of Hickory!
