I think more could of been done and someone could of help her insead of standing around . I also think they could of got there faster and got the divers down quicker. I also feel like if she was white someone would of jumped in and tried to save her I really feel in my heart that someone out there knew how to swim and could of got to her in time.Also I think the school sould of been investigated because it was some things that was talk about that was not took seriously I really feel like it mas more to it and things could have been prevented if someone would of have just step up. now eveyone has a fucking comment We love you Angie,from big bro.

The Ouachita River is very dangerous to swim in and anybody that was not a professional rescue person probably would have added their own life to this catastrphe if they had dived in to help.

I do not know how this car ended up in the river.

The police need to make a full investigation of this event and get all of the facts.

Somebody told me that this girl going into the river was a suicide.

Does anybody know if this is true?

i believe she did it to get someones attention not to actually kill herself. it just went to far. i agree with cliffton to a point, but please be real cliffton family and friends should have stepped up and got her some help at the first signs of depression and believe me they seen it and ignored it! they knew and saw the signs and ignored her.So what this teaches us is to hear one another when we are calling out for help exspecailly if the signs of depression and suicide are there. So don't just blame the school.I agree someone could have saved her and the dive team could have came there prepared and should from this point come prepared!!!!!!!!!! rip shawnty you will be missed. it was her time to go and god took her.

Angie was a beautiful person. She had the best personality.Angie was a friend of mine and she had the biggest heart. People laughed and joked and put her down instead of lifting her up and helping her. I guess she just got tired of it all. But even though i miss her and wish i could see her radiant smile again.... im glad shes in Heaven, where she can no longer feel her earthly pain. Shes with Jesus now and the only emotion she will be feeling is love and joy for all eternity. My friend, Angani ''Angie'' Shantay Clark was truly to good for earth.

I belive race isn't a issue here, if a white honkey was drowning I wouldn't have got um. Those river currents are bad in that area year round, cause the river narrows up alot, compared to the other parts of the river.

I can't believe people are coming on here to have a racial discussion. Black, White, whatever. Does it really matter? What matters is that if someone knew in their head & heart they could have helped her and didn't... they will live with that forever. But, to people who knew they were no help at all... there should be no expectations on them.

Angie was a beautiful person who had the sweetest personality. We went to school together when she attended Richwood High. I Miss her alot. Her death should be a wake up call to people to stop trying to be so evil and spreading rumors about what they think is wrong and help those who are crying out for help and support. i love u Angie you will always be in my heart.

Blacks can't swim or think fast. The car salesman tried to tell her it would not float. She said "I always wanted to join the Navy and be stationed on a submarine."
