Ok, let's hear it.........."He was such a good boy. He never did anything wrong. I don't believe this ACCIDENT was his fault."
Bull CRAP..........It's another example of an idiot driving stupid and two other idiots who willingly got in the car with him. Fortunately HE won't be driving anymore.

Wow, compassionate guy here. Must not have anyone that loves him, and he must not love anyone else. I feel a little sorry for this piece of dog crap.

There is no excuse to drive drunk. No sympathy for this young man. Hope that no innocent people got hurt.

We are very lucky that this idiot didn't injure or kill any innocent people. This isn't always the case.

If you've got to drink...drink at home. If you go out to drink, take a cab. If you get drunk and can't drive and don't have the money for the cab...SLEEP IT OFF IN THE PARKING LOT. Oh, and don't leave the keys in the ignition, remember to lock the doors and crack the windows a bit so the 'skeeters can get drunk too!

This "piece of shit" happened to be my best friend. I didn't realize that there were people out there who were so heartless and cold. Here I am, haven't stopped crying since it happened yet people seem to think just because mistakes were made, that that person is better off dead. Where have all the decent, respectful human beings gone to? You all are completely repulsive. This was someones best friend/brother/youngest son, don't you "idiots" have any compassion whatsoever? If this was the other way around and it was your loved one, none of you would be saying any of this. Stop being such hypocrites. This is a human being were talking about, TREAT HIM LIKE ONE.

Aaron Bennett was one of my closest friends, and the only reason I made it through high school without killing myself. Seriously.

Lets all be honest with ourselves here, we all or most of us do drink. and most of us have driven drunk before or have had only one drink that if "god forbid" something does happen on the road the media will juice is up just for a nice headline. We werent there, we don't know the truth. Lets just keep the comments to ourselfs about wishing people "dead" these people do have family and friends, and besides, wishin people dead is not good thing that just puts you up there with Hitler, Saddam, Osama, c'mon seriously. I know driving while under the influence is not a thing to do, but we still do it. Why, who knows we are under the influence. How about we talk about ways to prevent driving under the influence? Like breathlizers as a factory option for each car? I dont know its a suggestion! because banning beer or alchohol is not gonna happen especially in this economy? and lets not forget what happened when we did?(crime, mobsters and more) The moal of the story lets not bash people for there mistake and wish them dead, lets talk about doing something to improve the situation.
besides the points I wish a well recovery to the passengers and sorry for the loss

Sorry to say - I would highly recommend looking for IRL people/friends for solace and NOT internet message boards.

Perhaps then, since you owe your life to this young man, you could fill in in the blanks left by the Sentinel reporter. Was Aaron the most sober of the three or the groups designated driver? Based on the differences in age, was this trio a dart team off to an opponent tavern or do folks like this just ordinarily hang out? Inquiring minds love details.

But God will smash the heads of his enemies, crushing the skulls of those who love their guilty ways. The Lord says, "I will bring my enemies down from Bashan; I will bring them up from the depths of the sea. You, my people, will wash your feet in their blood, and even your dogs will get their share!" (Psalms 68:21-23 NLT)

you know, I couldn't say.. I wasn't there..obviously. the point is, people don't need to be so insensitive. What if it was your best friend? what if it was someone in YOUR family? I mean, give the hate a rest and get over yourself.
Lindsey Bennett is his sister, who has two small children.

Sounds like you have a series of problems. Are you going to say, considering that he was one of your closest friends, are you going to say you honestly didn't know that he drove like an idiot? If you did, what did you do to try to help keep him from killing himself? If you DIDN'T think he drove like an idiot, maybe you simply don't know the difference and think it's normal in which case YOU stand a damn good chance of dying in the same manner. As for him being your friend......Who cares? Perhaps you should hang out with a better class of loser.

Is this what these forums are for? To call people who died idiots and say they deserved what they got? How awful. Yes, everyone knows you aren't supposed to drive drunk... But everyone makes mistakes and accidents happen. I'm sure all of you have at least one friend or family member who have driven drunk once in their life.

People don't deserve to die for these things.

Your last sentence says it all. People don't deserve to die for the drunk driver's criminal behavior. Often the biggest advocates against drunk driving are relatives or friends of those killed by drunk driving. Take MADD for example. Imagine you had a child that was run over by a drunk. Would you consider the crime of drunk driving differently?

I never said I didn't consider it a crime. And yeah, of course the biggest advocates are relatives and friends of people who died from it. No one said anything about thinking drunk driving is okay. Obviously it's a crime and should be treated like one... If he had hurt someone and survived I wouldn't deny that he should be prosecuted. But he didn't. He killed himself because of it. I think that's more than serving his time.

All I'm saying is that there's no need to insult him after his death. All you're doing is hurting those who cared about him.
