God bless these young, young boys. A 17 year old should not have been driving a new BMW. It is meant for experienced drivers and as great a kid as he was, he was not experienced enough. Another cheaper, starter car, probably would not have made it to 100 MPH without them slowing down and feeling it was too dangerous. You kids have to listen, we know more than you, we have been through it. I know you don't want to hear it, I didn't either. You have a long, long life ahead of you and many, many things will happen - good and bad. Please listen to people that have been there. You'll be glad one day that you did.

ok lets look at the facts - 2 teenagers in an aggressive car, speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. You can say what you want but i say they deserved what they got. when you do crap like that what do you expect?? i know first hand because i lost 3 friends in one night to that crap. these kids should not be driving if they cant follow the simple rules of the road. if you think you are a bad ass cause you're driving daddy's car - think again. get a brain. WHERE ARE THE PARENTS?? Teach your children something about the real world. i don't know about anyone else, but i will teach my children how to be proper citizens and to have respect for others, unlike these two children.
"They" deserved what "they" got? "These" two have no respect for others? I would love to know how you know what the passenger was doing while his friend was speeding. You don't know that he wasn't telling his friend to slow down. You don't know that he wasn't scared out of his mind. I can't stand how so many of you are blaming the passenger when you have no clue what went on in that car. Also, yes, the driver made a huge, stupid mistake, however he ABSOLUTELY did not deserve to die. I'm sorry you lost your friends to a tragedy like this, but, like them, noone deserves to die. That's truly a horrible thing to say. "THESE" were children.

You don't need to be kill someone to be arrest for DWI. Just like these boys didn't need to kill anyone but themselves to be considered. wreckless. You all want to say we are disrepecting the family and thei grief. Well I respect their right to mourn. Im not calling their homes or their places of business and giving them my opinion. This is a public forum that I doubt in their current situation they are even going to read and if they do than no one should curb their opinions.
The public has a right to talk about this issue and incident cause guess what it happened in public. It involves everyone of us who use the roads on Long Island and face the careless and reckless driving habits of the youth of today.
They acted with complete disregaurd for the public. For whatever the excuse that people who knew them want to make up the facts are still clear. There is not a vehicle on the road be it driven by officals or civilians that is allowed to operate at the speeds that this young man did.
For all you kids threatening people and telling them to shut up its the truth. You may not want to hear it and you may be coddled by your parents but thats not my problem.
The Gov of NJ was just in a wreck 3 weeks ago while he was not wearing his seat belt and in a SUV being driven at 91mph. He spent 3 weeks in the hosptial and yet here the GOV of a state and the courts are talking about still issuing him the tickets for not wearing his safety belt.
Both the Gov and the Trooper face the possibility of loosing their jobs for their actions. They didn't kill anyone either. They are accountable for thier actions at 91mph and held responsable for their actions and they were going 30mph slower than this young man.
Do you young adults have any idea how fast 130mph really is. After reading your posts its apparent your clueless. It's grossly grossly reckless no matter what excuse you wanna try to justify. They were extremly careless.
As for you right to mourn you have that right and nobody is saying that you don't. If you don't like what you read here than simply don't read it. But don't tell others that they dont have the right to comment or its we don't know these 2 boys.
You don't need to know them to know what their actions were far above and beyond any ration of safety. You don't need to have a memory of them to have a right to say they met the fate that they alone decided to take the chance on.
Only a Idiot would light a match in a house filled with gas. Only a idiot would jump out of a plane without a chute. Only a idiot would operate a automobile going over 130mph and think they could operate it safely.
We don't need to know them to know they truely were idiots. So take your personal views and memories and candy coat what ever you need to. But only a selfish idiot would change the truth of the story to glorify ones careless actions so to ease ones own pain.
I'm glad somebody else gets it.

My deepeset sympathy to you all. In 1987 my friends and I lost a very dear friend, Jack Atsidakos ,also in a tragic car accident. This story has hit us all so close to home as we plan for our 20 year reunion is this month. I have often been asked "how did you guys get through such a loss at such a young age" we all stuck together. Our entire class got closer, there no longer was the "popular crowd" we just stayed as close to one another as we could. I hope you can all comfort in eachother. On behalf of The Class of 1987, Our deepsest condolences to the framiles and friends.

there is no common sense when it comes to speeding. You think your in control of a 3000lb weapon just because no one is around or the roads are straight? i agree with some of your post, but hope you reconsider speeding. Most people are in a rush to go nowhere and its so senseless

Another article, another chance for those sick people at home with computers to come out and pray upon the hurt of others.
You hide behind your anonymity, you say terrible things without any thought behind it, you purposely salt the wounds of those you don't know. Why you do this, I will never understand. Perhaps you feel better about yourself or maybe you actually believe these things. Either way, at a time like this, you should shut your mouths, keep your filthy thoughts to yourself. There is no need to add more pain to those already in mourning. If you do not have respect for the dead, at least respect those who are still alive, those who are merely grieving for the lost of good friends, sons, brothers.
We are not, in any way, making these boys into heroes. Their stories are only in the news because this is how society works, bad things happen and the journalists report on it. Hopefully, by having this tragedy public, some lives will be touched by it. Some teens, still speeding, will learn from it. This whole thing is a sad, tragic, lesson. No, these boys were not heroes, but they were good kids. At least Michael was, I knew him, he was like a part of our family. They made a mistake, they paid the full price, and those affected by it are trying to deal with it.
Don't like the fact that the site has flowers or flags by it? Too bad. This is how people attempt to cope, they make mini shrines to celebrate the life that one was, a reminder to those who knew and those who didn't. If it truly bothers you, look away as you drive by. Just leave us alone. We are hurting. Please, dig deep within the hearts you have and attempt to place yourself in our positions. Show some compassion... or at least keep your hurtful opinions to yourself.
The last message board I kept up with was eventually shut down due to the hurtful things you people were saying. Please, let's not have that happen again. If this continues, I will do the same as my mother did.... spam the entire thread until newsday is forced to shut it down. You guys don't understand, there are children, friends of these boys, who are reading this.
Why hurt them in such a manner?
I hope you are happy with yourselves, I won't stoop to your level however. I do not wish any harm on you or your children. But you should realize that karma will come back on you, and you will have to pay for these hurtful things you said.
This ends now.
It was the guy with the scary face that was saying all those bad things! Where is he now?

You can't even imagine how much this has effected everyone in bellmore-merrick, let alone the families of the boys.
They didn't deserve to die, and you people disgust me for sitting here and pointing fingers.
RIP Mike & Jack <3

My heart goes out to the families of these two kids. I didn't know them, but my children did. This is a terrible tragedy, but to put the blame on their parents during this time, is not the right thing to do. The families are mourning for their children.

It's not giving a 17 year old a car thats the problem, it's the fact that they don't have enough common sense to know when to use it. If you want to go fast then go to a drag strip...as a 17 year old myself I want to go fast too, but I'd rather do 120 in a safe controlled enviornment then end up in 20 pieces against a tree for 20 seconds of fun...and they were going in and out of traffic, theres a great idea. I'm just sorry for the parents.

Hey! Instead of railing on these two dead kids why don't you turn to the Paris Hilton fiasco.
Her lawyers are going to appeal the jail sentence she got for violating the terms of her probation (for DUI).
Now that's something that deserves all your venimous deprecations.
