In case you have forgotten the other two death of young men this year in RPV, here are links to the stories on the Breeze site. PS If posters cannot find the name of this young man, it is easy to find if you are able to do any sort of internet search. But since some posters have made racial comments, I will not do your work for you.

A 21-year-old man was killed when his speeding car struck the center divider of a Rancho Palos Verdes roadway and rolled over several times, authorities said Friday.

Michael Richard Sayegh of Palos Verdes Estates died about 9:50 p.m. Thursday after he lost control of his 1995 Ford Mustang while driving on Palos Verdes Drive West near Berry Hill Drive, a Sheriff's Department spokesman said.

Does anyone know if or why he was not tested for driving under the influence. What does the Shefiff's department have to say for themselves?
I wonder if the Lee Family paid off the LASD to ignore or destroy incriminating evidence that could send their little lowlife to prison. They did such a poor job raising Jake that I would not be surprised.

I would also like hear some better explaination from Lomita Sheriff. If we are paying for there service. They should be accountable to us.

I know Jake Lee and I know the parents and this is a result of bad parenting. He had multiple car accidents... 5, I heard... and 2 felony charges already. So, you can judge yourself. By the way, Lomita sheriffs are useless. Why didn't they test him for alcohol? He drank that night and everyone who knows him knows that. He had the nerve to call his friends from the accident scene minutes after it happened. My heart goes out to the victim and his family.

I hope that every time the Lee Family drives down Hawthorne Blvd. they are reminded what their lowlife son did. However, judging from the way they raised Jake, they probably do not care.

Ernie, These type of people are probably more pissed off at the victim for being where he was at that time than they are at their spoiled rotten child. I don't like to second guess the cops and will not. Maybe the article doesn't tell the whole story but I will be very disapointed if the poster is correct in saying this monster was drinking before this happened and was not screened.

Maybe he was not drunk at that very moment. He was running in between 3-4 parties on Saturday night, must be tired to dead while he was driving. Believe me HE DRINKS.It happened when he was in my house and I had to order him to leave and give him a warning not to show at my doorstep.

Jake Lee was always a lowlife loser. I was not surprised when I heard about this. I hope he and his family pay for this big time.

It seems everyone from PV that knew Jake Lee has nothing but negative things to say about him. Yet, I don't see any of his friends that he use to party with coming to his defense. Maybe he did not have any friends. Even those he hung out with think he is a loser.

torrance -
Chill out. Who cares if he/she can spell? Obviously you didn't care for their comment. You didn't say anything when Lee's friend made his illiterate comments about what a great guy he really is. Besides, he is a PV scholar, and it only counts on the tests - and they are always prepared for those.

I don't think it's right to generalize PV, I hear it all the time.
Yes, a lot of people are complete douches *cough* Jake Lee *cough*, but not EVERYONE.
And no, Rancho is not like San Pedro.

jake lee is an immature lowlife peice of afterbirth. he really is going nowhere in life. never was before this happened and definently not after this happened. he was, and probably still is the biggest drinker i know. he was at my friends house one time, taking shots and drinking mixed drinks like it was water. he was throwin back baccardi, absolut, and captain morgan like it was nothing. he drank til he couldnt walk straight, and until he was violently puking. thank god he didnt drive that night, because im sure he wouldve gotten in that car, and wouldve killed someone. i hate to say it, but it was only a matter of when something like this happened with jake lee. i only hung out with him twice, but twice was all it took to realize what a loser he was. i hope he gets a reminder of what he has done to this poor family, every single day of his life. not to mention, he was practically bragging about what he had done the next day on facebook. may peace be with the victim's family.

just goes to show, lil spoiled pv estates kids getting too fast of cars for them when they dont know how to drive them and thinking they are tough shit. I've seen kids at my school (PV High) rolling in Audi's and BMW's and such and then looking at the cars and seeing scrapes all down the sides and shit like that while i drive my hand me down corolla and not a scratch on it. Its just like learn to drive then by a nice car, this kid should be charged for vehicular manslaughter for what he did to that poor guy and his family and there isnt any excuse for what he did it. If he had 5 accidents and 2 feleonies as stated above, then this is TERRIBLE PARENTING.

Anger and suffering makes people feel helpless. Many condolences go to to the family of the deceased for they will never see their loved one again. Let the word of the law take over. There is plenty of suffering for this boy and his family.
