Well, glad you asked! Two are with one father, another is with her dad and her baby that has fetal alcohol syndrome is with his grandparents in Vermont. She is a diagnosed schizophrenic, alcoholic and before I believed everything that she says I would say I would remember half of what she said. Also remember that she put her drunk self back in the car with someone drunk and didn't call anyone until her drunk ass was home and couldn't get a dwi herself. She knew the plan and called just to save her own ass. She should also get conspiracy and leaving the scene. Oh yeah she also has a suspended license from a dwi so all of you that think she is a hero for reporting it - she had her own motives. Don't get me wrong - I am glad that she told because Fuli Wu's family deserves this closure.

Why would she keep having children she does not want or can care for? Disgusting!

Oh she wants them but obviously can't care for them. Thank God the courts took them away! Leeanna is a very ill person that truly in her mind thinks she is a good mom. She is probably the one that distracted Laurel. I heard they were fighting at the bar. Doesn't make it right what Laurel did but she wasn't the only one in that car.

It sounds like most of alcohol was consumed before they even got to the bar. And who knows what other drugs they may have been doing. None of them have a good reputation.

why would a young woman like leanna be hanging out with an older/drunk loser group like this? she came from a good family- wtf happened to leanna? booze? drugs? bad men in her life? thats too bad cause she had a chance in life. apparently she wasted that chance and now must live with what happened that night . she was wrong too even if she wasn;t the driver.that chinese lady didn;t deserve to die the way she did.

Apparently, she is a drunk loser, this is her group, they fit right in with her. She was probably spoiled rotten and that is why she is where she is at. Obviously she is very selfish as she has four children that she cannot have because she is no good for them!

My heart breaks for the families. I know all of Laurel's family and they are all honest great people. None have bad reputations. This must be devastating for everyone. I think of her daughter and all of life's biggest moments she'll face without her mom. I think of the victim's family and the tragedy that they were hit with, the shock and heartache. So sad, the whole thing. Prayer is needed.

I am sure to get a great many sarcastic comments following what I am about to say. And that is fine.People with nothing better to do than feel superior to others by judging is not uncommon.
Alcoholism is a disease. The lady who is being charged is no doubt an alcoholic. But I find her actions especially reprehensible because SHE KNOWS she is an alcoholic and does nothing to help herself. We dated very very briefly some years back and not only did she admit to being an alcoholic, but she also said she would never attend AA because it was for "losers".
Well, I am one of those grateful "losers". I got sober 22 years ago and I am no longer a threat to society and my neighbors. And if my life includes spending 1 hour a night at an AA meeting to keep myself healthy.....so be it.
Ms. Randall will have plenty of time to think about her life. Her life is now up to someone else( the law and prison) to control. She has no say in what will happen from day to day. All of that will be told to her. Sad situation all the way around. But here is where I will take the flack from all of you fellow readers.
We are NOT judges and juries. The law is established that people in the legal and jusicial system make those decisions. We civilians do not.
So we can sit in judgement and call her all sorts of names and cast decisions about what her fate should be. Ask yourself one important question. Why do we do that? Do we not cast judgement to feel just a little superior to our fellow human being? Do we not sit in judgement so we can avoid looking at ourselves?
YOUR lives need examining. YOU need to maybe get lives which are happy and fulfilling. Going back and forth with comments about a diseased woman and her sad plight leads me to believe that people have WAY too much time on their hands.
There but for the grace of God ANY of us could have a catastrophic moment of very poor judgement alter OUR lives forever. And if you don't think so.....think again.
Judge. Keep judging. That'll bring a dead lady back. That'll make you all feel better because you're all so much more superior to the driver of that vehicle. But if you are judging.......please don't ask for mercy when you fuck up.

Well said!!! People are so eager to judge someone, when they need to be judging themselves. We all have skeletons in our closet. This could have easily happened to anyone one of us. I mean is she the only one to get behind the wheel drunk?! I think not! She just happened to be the unlucky one to this time. So to everyone judging this woman because she got behind the wheel while drunk and killed someone, make sure you think about all of your hateful words towards this woman the next time YOU think about getting behind the wheel drunk. You may not be so lucky yourself. I am guilty as well of this d like (grateful to be sober" said, "I am no longer a threat to society and my neighbors" that also apply to myself. so don't be quick to judge when in fact you to have done the sinful act of drinking and driving. And I know this does not apply to all but it applies to most.
