How DARE anyone to questions his mother's or father's feelings? Those of us who have not lost a child can't even imagine what these people are feeling. It's easy to sit back and say "Well, if it was me I'd...." or "I would...". Unless you have lost a child you don't know WHAT you'd do. None of us can say we would or wouldn't feel exactly as his parents, whether you agree with them, or not.

I feel that the parents whose home this ocurred in should have called each and every parent of the ones who were there, as soon as they discovered the alcohol use, and had them pick up their child, even if it was in the middle of the night.

I do feel bad for the kids that were there - it was a hard lesson learned - but, hopefully, it will allow these kids (and others) to realize that things like this happen and not always to "other people". All kids, and adults alike, need to know and realize that once you have a drink, you DON'T make good decisions. You DON'T have your full wits about you. So, yes ,while I know these other kids have been traumatized, let them learn from it, along with everyone else. Help them cope with it, but don't coddle them as the 'victim'.

Yes, he and all the others kids were doing something they shouldn't have been. I'm sure all their parents had taught them not to do it.

The bottom line is: A child lost his life. A mother and father lost their son. Siblings lost their brother and many children lost their friend. Not one of us who have never been in their shoes has any right to say how they should or shouldn't feel. Common sense tells you they are beyond devastation and my heart aches for them.

Pray that God will comfort them (especially his parents) and remember Chaz as the great person he was.

Let this topic be for remembering and honoring Chaz's life.

Whoever bought them the alcohol is the one who is responsible for taking his life. They should go to prison for murder. If you know who bought the alcohol and don't turn them in, you are just as guilty as they are. How can you live with yourself knowing that???
i agree with you, why are archie and his wife the only one on trail, it also should be the ones who got the booze also. if they were not able to get it then this would not have happened.
