This still does not make it ok. It is still wrong.

A couple of lessons here, don't supply alcohol, don't drink and drive and don't get in the car with someone who has been drinking, but it is still a tragedy and I have gotten into a car with a drunk driver and I just got lucky. Everyone makes mistakes, but when you are a parent and you supply fifteen year olds with alcohol that isn't a mistake, that is negligence. I could see if these kids were 18 or 19, but they were fifteen, it is sickening.

Any parent who would provide alcohol needs their children taken away. Anything could have happened. A child could have gotten blood alcohol poisening or falled down the steps and broken their neck. There is not a limit to how negligent this act was. I hope the court uses these two as an example. Throw the book at em.

Here we go again! Soeone has been injured and the only thing they can think of is how hard they can penalize someone theey want to blame. It was a stupid mistake for the parents to do what they did. They were trying to be "cool" There are other parties to this issue here. The daughter didn't have to drink - but she did. The daughter didn't have to get into a car with a drunk driver - but she did. What happened to contributionary negligence here in this state? If we put everyine in jail who made stupid decisions they regretted, we would have empty streets.
Sane made it clear the parents made a mistake. Give him a break! We are all responsible for our own actions including the parents who provided alcohol, the driver and the passengers. The driver chose to drink and drive and the passengers chose to drive with a drunk. This is a sad situation. They all contributed to this situation. They all chose not to use common sense; life continually proves to us we have accountability and control over our circumstances. These children were old enough to be let out of the house to attend a party; they should have been responsible enough to make a common sense decision. The choices when handling circumstances concerning small things to major things will ultimately determine our destiny. When we teach our children to be accountable for themselves, we then teach our children to be responsible and self sufficient. You can not control others and if you think you can then you will find you will pay a terrible price for that belief.
