It wasn't "just like that". His father acted very wrecklessly. The boys would have had an uphill battle the rest of their lives, with genes such as those.

It sure seems their father acted recklessly: but leave those boys alone. No person is the duplicate of a single parent. They had a large, loving family and a good mother, a community that values them. Don't say such stupid, hurtful things.

Their own father didn't care much about them and you have the nerve to whine about what I posted?! Hilarious!

Their mom chose to spread her legs and have kids with a loser who raced with his kids in the car. Don't act as if a few written words are worse than anything they've done.

If the community had cared about them, his dad probably would have know better than to do this. I laugh when people make silly claims after something like this.

You write what you want. I'll write what I want.

This is a real a tragedy for all involved, including their father. Do you really need to make senseless hateful remarks regarding the parents.

People be warned. If you do something this stupid, people will talk & write about it.

Don't do anything this stupid or else idiots such as Unknown will cry about it, instead of putting the blame where it belongs.

The only thing that is senseless, is the manner in which their father was driving.

Stating the father didn't care much about his kids does not equal "blaming the kids", you idiot!

Because he was crying the most at the funeral means he cared about his kids?!! You're even stupider than I thought. A father who cared about his kids wouldn't go street racing with them in the car.

But thanks for the laugh!! Because he was crying a lot he cared about his kids...even if he killed them. That is HILARIOUS!!!!

By the way, you DID say I blamed the kids.

You shouldn't drink or take drugs when you post.

It's disgusting he was even able to attend the funeral. He should be locked up for either voluntary manslaughter or 2nd degree murder.

It's completely foreseeable that street racing could lead to people being killed. That's all you need for either one of those charges.

Who are you??? You probably don't even know the father! Nathan and Damian loved their father very much and the father loved them back! It was great the father attended the funeral. Yes this might have been his fault but, it's still there dad! I can't believe you!! Keep your hurtful comments to yourself! We don't need to hear you down put on their father keep it to yourself. For all I know your probably grown up. You should act like it too you know! Be respectful. This is the time when all the people who knew Nathan and Damian Medina are going to be hurting for a very very long time may e for the rest of their life. We don't need you coming and making it worse. And DO NOT disrespect Nathan medina's mother!!! He is my best friend and I would know that she is a kind caring and a loving mother just like a mother should be. Do t make her sound like a whore she is NOT!!

A father who loves his kids doesn't race at all, much less with them in the car!

You should learn how to read. I never said she was a whore. I said she made a very poor decision in who she chose to be the father of her children.

I realize the truth hurts. But don't blame me.

No, it WASN'T just like that. He made a conscious CHOICE to race with his sons in the car. It wasn't a lightning bolt from the skies that struck them down and killed them.

No, I see what your saying but what I am and was saying is that for me it happened so quickly. My friend texted me saying Nathan passed away. That's it. I was surprised saying is it true?! I'm STILL in shock

Maybe you can't read either because I said "don't make her SOUND like a whore" ( key word: sound) because you sure are making it sound like your calling her one. She doesn't just "spread her legs" for just any loser... Maybe he was a good guy before may e things have changed maybe he's gone through stuff. You don't know, do you?
