As bad as the chinks are, the truck drivers in general are much worse, and more a danger on the road. Its unfortunate that the CHP lost control of the feeways long ago.

Chinks usually drive to slow, where as truckers drive way to fast.

Good news and bad news.

Good news: One less Mexican.

Bad News: To bad he died. He could have just gone back to Mexico. Likely better jobs there too.

Come on Vito, I agree with you much of the time, but the 'one less Mexican' comment is to much.

You an embarrassment to Real American's for being racist. You should analyze and read your comments more carefully. Having FREE SPEECH, doesnít mean being offensive, cruel and especially Racist. Thereís a difference between stating your opinion and the other is imposing your beliefs so much youíre even being cruel and rude to your fellow mankind. At this point in time, we should all gather together and be human, humble and kind. You never know when your FELLOW MEXICAN might lend you a hand when youíre in need. Look for GOD!

Itís unbelievable to think that animals such as Vito and Dan exist in this world. Animals like you should be locked up in cages far away from society, living with other animals. How could you possibly make such comments on people that you donít even know. I would call you some redneck white trash but geesh, you canít even compare yourselves to any human life. This was a great person that was working hard to do what he can for his family. May he rest in peace and God be with creatures like you two (and those that agree with them) who need helpÖ.far more than what anyone could imagine.

Vito and Dan, from someone who knew Jesus (Jesse) for 28 years let me make something clear to you. He was an AMAZING Son, Father, husband and Friend! Go back to Mexico? Maybe you should crawl back to where ever it is you came from. He was born here and was a very honorable and hard working man. Seems like you have never lost anyone you loved, otherwise you would have a much kinder heart! He had 3 kids, two of them are still young; they lost their dad and will never be able to play ball with him again. He was a father who watched very proud as his kids played sports, got honer roll at school, and was very involved with their school activities. I don't like wasting my time with people like you but it's something I am doing in his honor, maybe you will realize the man you think deserved to die was a person who many loved honored and will miss deeply. A Son, Father, Husband and Friend.

Hey, Mr Stupid Jesus freak, read what I said. I was talking about these reckless truckers who endanger the general public all the time over-driving their bigrigs, going way to fast.

Your buddy was one of them which led to his own demise.

Try 605 Fwy sometime,'DUMMY'. One just might get you.
