Will all of you judgemental, cold hearted, hateful people just leave this family alone to grieve without unecessarily and cruelly adding to their pain?

i know him personally he wasnt a bad driver.
The facts show something different. His driving skills did not exist. His suicide was tragic, but there is no room to dispute his driving. His record speaks for itself - and GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY speaks volumes.

Again, Derek's suicide was tragic, no doubt. I sincerely hope that someday some of your pain subsides. Hopefully then you'll be able to see this situation for what it really is - a history of reckless driving, a (very) false sense of invincibility, and a tragically bad choice. Hopefully, you'll learn from the choices Derek made.

"First off, he killed himself, you think any of us care enough about him or his family to send them hatemail?? LOL get a grip! I personally don't think the post should have taken down the pictures, if you don't want to see them, then DON'T LOOK-- But don't censor my news b/c you have a weak stomach! "
Dear "LOVE IT" and to all you pieces of garbage that are writing about speeding, cell phones, tailgating, etc.:
People make mistakes. Nobody thinks that these bad things can actually happen to them. You are guilty. I am guilty. Your children, grandparents, parents, nephews, aunts, uncles.. your family is guilty. So how dare you point fingers and judge someone based on this? I am ashamed at all of you commenting like this on this site and here I am a young woman... probably more mature than you will ever be. I just hope that this never happens to you or your loved one. How would you like it if your child was laying there dead on the side of the road like "roadkill" (as someone mentioned in one of the posts)? Would you enjoy it if people pointed fingers and were talking about someone that you cared about like this? Just imagine this being your child - because I am SURE that your child is NOT a perfect angel. None of us here on earth are! Let God be the judge of us and not you! I am just shocked and ashamed at you people and I thank God everyday that I didn't turn out the way most of you sick individuals did - you are scum of the earth.
Okay im sorry but you have no right to be saying that a lot if family members went on the site to see the article about him and the accident and then have to see him laying deadly on the floor. And you know if that were your son or your cousin,brother, any person in relation that you had a close relationship with you would not like too see people writing hateful comments about he killed himself its all his fault and you also would not like to go on and see pictures of them on the ground dead , even if his face didn't show, would't it kill you to see a loved one just laying there deadly. Just think about it and then maybe you will regret posting that. And yes I am one of his family members, he's my big cousin, but we were so close i called him my brother. So again think about that cause you know you would not like it if people were righting that about your dead cousin.

I think you guys are over reacting a bit. What is wrong with the pics? It's not showing them in a negative light.
