Notice that the person who is now deceased is the person who wanted to go for a ride into the village after having been drinking at a party at HER house. So, why is anyone being charged with a crime here?? How about they suffered enough from their stupidity? The girl who did it all is dead.

The driver was drunk and stoned by and was driving the car that resulted in her friend's death...what are you some kind of r_e_t_a_r_d?

So let's see, your grteat contribution to jurisprudence is that if I'm drunk and stoned and decide to drive and a passenger dies as a result of my decision I'm off the hook as long as the passenger who died asked me to drive.

As they say, denile is not just a river in Egypt.

They were ALL drunk, on drugs and ALL decided to get in the car.
The dead is just as guilty as the driver. So, because we can't punish a dead person lets punish the one who's still alive.
