How about you watch what you said. He happens to be in a coma right now that no one knows if he will come out of. So next time have some respect.

Your comment clearly shows how inhuman you truly are. You have no idea what you are talking about. How would you like to see your child fighting for their life? From what we hear your boys are no angels but we have to much class to name them. Jealousy gets you no where. There are some people out there that truly care. Get the facts right!!!
Keep your rude comments to yourself...

So let me get this straight - this kid is lying in a hospital bed in critical condition - and you decide to make defamatory claims against him all while under a screename.

You are priceless - go crawl under a rock somewhere and die.

Unless the library hours have changed it closes at 5:00 on Fridays. How could they be coming from the library at 7:30? Maybe they were riding their bikes in the parking lot but probably not getting books.

Just saying also - the library is closed by 5pm, how were they coming home from the library at 7:30pm?

the writer must have been using the library as a point of reference from where they came from to where the accident occurred. Really a moot point as the only thing that matter is to the extent of his injuries.

Wow.. Regardless of who he his, what he may have done or where he was coming from.. A terrible accident happened. Pray for everyone involved. Think of your child laying there and how you would react. There are lots of people suffering here. Do the right thing! Pray for a young life.

Oh well then they should have driven right over him. Please be respectful. I don't care about that. A young child, someones son was hit. Send him some good thoughts @ least.

We all did stupid stuff as kids. I will pray for him and add one for you as well.
