I'm sure her parents never made her take responsibility for her actions at any point in her life. Why should she be held accountable now? She was the prom queen after all. If something bad happens, it is always someone else's fault.

For the sister of stanley: I honestly do feel sorry this had to happen and that you have to deal with the loss. Although i probably should not comment back to you because i don't want to be disrespectful to you in anyway. I really do wish this had never happened.
Ok so you're not trying to be disrespectful in any way hmmm I really find that hard to believe because you keep writing these little comments. Just stop already. I honestly do not care what your opinion is and almost everyone else on here doesn't care either. Give it a rest. Sure she might be going through a "hard" time full of pain or whatever, but what about the pain my brother and Adam faced that night. I hope she feels that pain and has that fear in her for the rest of her life. Think about that next time you go to stand up for her. Think about protecting the driver when you are in their position with a tree centimeters away from your fragile body...

This girl did not pick up a gun a shoot 2 people. She made a terrible mistake which she will live with the rest of her life. Don't forget the passengers chose to get in the car with her and apparently stay in the car with her even with the way she was driving. They may have even been encouraging her so unfortunately the victims share a little blame in their own death. I don't think this girls life should be over because she did something stupid and lived to stand trial.
Two peoples' lives ARE over because of this girl's reckless and selfish actions. What don't you understand about this? Death is a permanent thing. The victims' families will never get to see their loved ones again. Would it really be so unfair to this KILLER if she had to serve some real prison time?

Chill Out, you are an extremely selfish person. You are completely incapable of understanding how a person's actions affect others. It's all about you and your friends, isn't it? Nobody else matters.

Whatever you do, don't reproduce (please tell me you haven't already). The last thing the world needs is more self-absorbed and low intelligence buffoons like yourself. Let me guess, your parents never told you "no" when you were a kid.

Naaahh. 60 days is just fine. Now..if she had been drinking!..THEN she would have deserved 60 years.
But, since she wasn't drinking, it was just an accident, and the trauma she has already suffered, along with the 30 or so days in jail she will still suffer ought to be enough to teach her a valuable lesson. Since there was no alcohol "involved" it was UNpreventable,and inevitable because we KNOW that any accident where alcohol IS involved is 100% preventable. Just ask MADD.

I went through some of these comments and i never realized how ignorant people can be. Yeah It is a horrible thing that two lives were taken and there families will never be able to see there kids again, but there is no way in hell that any of you should say she did this on purpose or call her a murderer.
Bottom line is she committed involuntary manslaughter and two months in jail is not an appropriate sentence. To drive through a community doing over 50 miles an hour clearly shows depraved indifference. She may have been there for those poor kids in the past, but she definitely did not "have their backs" that time. Any time a person is responsible for the death of another individual, whether it is a friend, relative or stranger, should not affect the sentence handed down. No amount of community service will make up for the stupid way that she killed her best friends. Nobody needs friends like that.

I disagree! She should be tied down and listen to rico's preaching and nonesense. That will make her want to committ suicide.

Even they are afraid of me. I've seen people possessed by demons and it's crazy!
