They should pull the liquor license of places that sell to underage buyers. Just as they should take the license to sell tobacco and lottery to places that sell to illegal children. Maybe then they will feel more responsible for their actions. At some point people will take responsibility for their own actions and straighten up.

I know for a fact that he will never forget this happened. Not only is his family going to make sure of that but this is not something that is going to just majically disappear. My s.i.l had the same thing to her cousin. His best friend drove drunk and as a result her cousin was killed. He did serve time, but not by the cousins familys choise. They fought with the courts to keep him out of jail due to the life term sentence that will forever be held over his head. Even 10 years later his has not touched another drink

The fact remains that people don't have to die over a stupid drink! Drink at home, or at least don't drive is the answer to this problem. Unfortunately people aren't always that smart, and alcohol makes them even braver.

Not necessarily, the parents of the boys don't want other parents to suffer the loss like they have. If the Kwik Way sold to these boys they will have no problem selling to the other tempted teens that will try the same thing. Hold the store responsible and maybe they too will help prevent another tragedy. Kids will be kids and temptation can get the best of them. It is too late to save Shawn, Aaron and Terry so the parents are reaching out to help other parents, they aren't suing the stinkin Kwik Way Mart, they are assisting in teaching them a lesson about following the LAWS!!!!!!!!!!

Parents no longer have any control over any of their children who are over 18, the age of majority. It is no longer up to them to "watch over" a child that age, who is an adult, responsible for his own actions.

everyone is saying "well he is not the only one who made the choice" but if you think about it the other kids who made the choice got a lot worse of a punishment then him soo 7-15 is what he deserves
