i am tired of all this too. don't pay attention to the thanks comments cause this chick is straight up nuts. the stuff about being on life support is messed up, no life support, no shooting in the head, grazed yea not shot in the head. she is so full of it and yea some people don't have a clue nor ever will. be more adult and own up to the fact you both screwed up.

i'm tired of hearing about all this too,. and you guys pay no attention to thanks comments. this chick is off her rocker. she wasn't on life support nor was she shot in the head. it grazed her head didn't enter at no point. she needs to get it together and at least tell the truth not just what people want to hear. but what do you expect to hear from an immature 16 yr old. and they both just need to accept responsibility.

Yes, a bullet grazed the top of my head, cracked my skull letting blood go to my brain, but it didn't happen did it? And yes im 16yrs. but im very mature for my age and i have alot of responsibilities thank you.And i was on life support for 2 days and in icu for 5days and all this is the truth. I am innocent and have no lies to tell. But since you supposedly know every thing you keep believing what you want
to. You also keep trying to get others not to believe me but it will be ok in the end when it is revealed to the public i am innocent and all of this is true.

Why are you angry with the police and not your male driver??? He was the one who put you in harms way. I'm not trying to belittle you I would just like to know why you aren't angry with him. Did you at anytime ask him to stop the car? What went on between the two of you while he was running from the police?

I was angry with him at first, but then my family seen his tears while we was in the hospital wanting forgiveness. We both bout died and im not angry with him now because im just glad were both alive. I asked him to slow down and i knew he was scared so i just let it be and all that happened. The police still had no right to shoot me i was just an innocent passenger.

Those police didnt even know of whom it was or nothing thats why im so mad. They didnt even know who it was til i was shot lying on the ground and asked me who he was. They had no reason to act that way.

I don't know how the story goes because I wasn't there. I do know if someone had driven the car like that with me in it...The police would have had to pull me off him when he finally stopped. You're lucky he didn't wreck and kill you or put you in a wheel chair for life. I hope you will think about life long and hard and not let someone put you in a position like that again. You're to young to die or be crippled for life over something as petty as the charges this guy was trying to out run. Think about your future and what you want to do with your life. Get your education and a good job so you can take care of yourself. Find a nice boyfriend who will treat you like a princess. Your life is to precious to waste. I'm not trying to belittle you. I remember being young and I didn't always do the right things. None of us do.

I am a junior in highschool and plan to graduate next year, and plan to go to college to be an RN. I know i shouldnt talk to him but i do i love him.
And hero stuff like that is fun but minus the police situation. In little fast racing cars and thats what there built for but not for the police.
I know he was in the wrong but no ones perfect. And the way it seems your understanding and thank you most people on here think they know every thing when they dont.

I do have to disagree with the fast racing cars. I still have the scars from a "young hero" running a stop sign and plowing into me when I was younger. My 6 year old son was seriously hurt. They were just "drinking and having a little fun." You said in another post you are very mature but I have to question that if you don't realize your friends night of running from the police could have been sooooo much more tragic. Think about how you would have felt if he would have wrecked and killed an innocent child. You have to think beyond yourself and your friend and what gives you a thrill. I still think you need to take a hard look at where your life is headed. Thankfully my son didn't die but he's had more than one nightmare about that night.

I never said i liked being in them, im just saying i like muscle cars,etc. Im glad your son is alright. Ok the way you say it, the male has a 2yr. what if it was his son those cops shot. See they are sorry they didnt even know it was him.

So why did the police shoot at the car? I can't imagine them shooting without reason with a trailor park full of people watching them. Did they have reason to think they were going to be run down? From what I read on this forum once the bullets hit the glass you never know which way they'll go. I'm sure they would have never shot you on purpose. I hope you're healing physically and emotionally. I still think you need a boyfriend closer to your age. You should enjoy your youth and not try to grow up to fast. You probably think I should mind my own business.:)

Well, I think I have just as much right to post here as you do. You could take some lessons in manners. If the young lady desires to post with me it's our business.
I'm concerned about a 16 year old being allowed to go out with a man as old as this guy is. In most places he would be in jail just for that reason.

Leigh, you sound like scared Cops wife or Officer an yourself that's about to lose his job and rep, ect. You sound like NO friend, a con maybe but by being so understanding and giving all your advice seems a little shady to me. You keep coming back to her being Wrong, Wrong, Wrong. You have more in this than you let on.
Now, Brittany you REALLY need to stay away from this "Leigh" gal. I think there's more to her than someone to talk to and give advise. You need not to talk, type or anything about this case IF it going to court or maybe a settlement out of court.
Brittany, Good Luck.

As the devil's advocate, I have to say that Leigh has not been badgering or harrassing Brittany in the least. It appears that she is just asking questions to get more information. The thing is that there is always at least three sides to every story, which includes the truth. We have all seen the side that the media reported. Then there is the side of the officers, which has not been disclosed to us yet. Then there is an account by the TBI which has not been reported to the general public either, and then there is Fortenberry's side. Finally, we have Brittany's account of what happened, and apparently, she is willing to talk about it on Topix. Leigh is just asking questions, and as long as Brittany is willing to answer them, then what is wrong with that? I don't know either of the individuals, but I too agree that Brittany needs to find a guy closer to her own age without a record. Even if he is not at fault for what happened in this incident, he has been in trouble before. I would offer this same suggestion to any teenage girl who was in a relationship with a guy in his twenties, or dating a guy that had been in trouble with the law in the past. As for a lawsuit, apprarently the girl either does not have a lawyer, does not have a good one, or is defying the attorney's request. Everyone knows that a good attorney would advise his client to not be on a public forum making statements concerning the case. Additionally, minding your own business is a two-way street. This is a public forum, and if you don't like what others have to say, then don't continue to engage in on-going conversation about it. By posting, you are just encouraging people to continue to talk about it.

no miss brittney you weren't on life support quit trying to get these people to feel sorry for you everyone is beyond that now. go to school go to college and get on with life. i know what i am talking about because i was there. seen it all and leave leigh alone sounds like she has alot of sense and does make good points in her comments and you don't like it cause you know its the truth. what about the guy he was in worse shape then you and you want all the attention. and yea if i had a 16 yr. old daughter who wanted to date a 20 yr old i'd slap the crap out of her so you need some guidance and not from the computer.
and as far as this guy he used to have a 2 yr. old till you came along and now he can't see him because you want let him from what we hear. shame on you you immature 16 yr. old jealous of a man and his 2 yr. old son grow up little girl grow up

Its quite funny that you say you was tellin him to slow down when Joseph him self told his family, that you were the one tellin him were to go? and apparently you yourself didnt know were to go! You saying your just and innocent passenger is making it look like its all joseph's fault well your parents knew the first time you all dated how old he is and how he likes to build cars!
