Opposed to 'you', non-us citizen? I would bet my home that marijuana had nothing to do with it.
What a sad story. My heart aches for the families involved.

Your not on the sight of accident,and the police stated this in the article.these are not my words or opinion of accident sight.I guess it's police job to slander and degrade deceased people
I think people write there own stories in there head instead of facts
So you want to bet your house the police planted pot in car ,I don't think so.they smelled alcohol ,they make statement you state opinion.Mmmm nice to live in own world
I should not and will not slander the victims and sorry if I did,not my intent
Go to patch article and read for your self before you venture into crazy bet
Elvis is alive also? Sound funny but they think like you,opinion not fact
Your kids break window and you say it fell out by itself
My sad point is alcohol impairs judgement,so why legalize maryjane it does the same thing.don't take certain meds,they affect judgement also
I don't like to see people hurt,I bet my house they were great people both of them.I do not smile at there passing,we all make tempoary bad judgement
I do not want to be enemy of yours momof2,I bet my right arm you are a great mom,and you tell your kids the danger of drink and drive.I respect your opinion and take care

Funny-'pot in the car' didn't cause an accident. Just like 'gun in the house' didn't rob the bank...

Why do you people waste your time reading news of people you don't know. Pay attention to your own kids and don't worry about any one else's. One day we will all be dead and nothing you said or thought will matter. Pay attention to your life.

The passenger is to blame. Further information states it was his car. How do you let someone with a .23 BA drive a car especially your own car. Keep in mind that the BA was probably taken at least hour after accident, so he was clearly drunk. Sure judgement is impaired but if that thought doesn't go through either of their minds just plain stupidity. Drive almost an hour to get drunk and drive home.

Same reason you are saying what you're saying.
I was only pointing out that no matter what was found; that in itself did not matter.
It is an overall, extremely sad situation for all people involved and blaming one thing or another won't change the outcome. My heart aches for the families and friends involved.
I pray that they can find some sort of peace or strength to get through this time of year;

I also apologize if I came off ignorant and insensitive. I felt you were blaming their accident on impertinent information. My main concern is that the families involved can get through this most difficult time.(momof2)

He will be missed dearly. He was so filled w/ life, w/fun, w/ love for all around him. We will never forget these days Tim, and will never forget you or your amazing spirit.

& love & prayers & hope for healing...to all of his friends in the O.P., those in Carbondale & Cally...& especially for his loving parents & sister...I wish for everyone the strength we need to get through such difficult times.

This kid was cool. Its sad to see people talk on here and judge. Do you know his family? Friends? I am cool with his friend Peter and he is one of many ppl who was hurt and it was sad seeing him like this. Sick of noisy ORLAND PARK PEOPLE? Yeah everyone is!! These people have no lives of their own, so they read ORLAND PARK BLOTTERS ALL DAY AND TALK SHIT about others. These people are just as mierable as ORLAND PARK POLICE. Get a life you miserable loser. dont worry These people are mostly liars and just ashamed to be seen negatively by human eyes, they have no belief in God, and they think orland park is a REALITY SHOW. They have drug users in their families they just dont admit it and they go around snitching on the neighborhood. They are hypocrites; noone is perfect and god bless this kid and his family. I wasnt his best friend, but he was an acquaintance and the few memories i have of him are peaceful and serene. This kid was a good guy, screw all of you. Get a life--orland park . WE LOVE YOU- and hate you.
