Why isn't Jimmy Lee who caused this horrible event held financially responsible for this boy's funeral? Why should his family struggle and pray that enough money is donated to bury their son?

I donated money for this cause but it infuriates me that the drunk driver who caused it is not held responsible to assist this family in their time of grief! Was that concert worth getting wasting and killing this little boy?

To answer the comment about drunk driver should pay for the funeral. Its amazing how folks can judge there are mishaps accidents that yes could have been avoided. Yet this wasn't intentional but accident. Im sure everyone has commited drinking and driving 1 point in time. Im sure if the man drunk was out he pay for it but he isn't to do so. Why degrade anyone when they are at a position where they can't defend themselves. Don't judge anyone things happen good or bad for whatever reason. This is what its called will get nothing and like it....
