Damn, that's tradgic but I don't agree with the vehicular manslaughter charges, if I wanna drive 200mph down 210 that might be reckless but I shouldn't have to worry about people being in the street.

Thank God for updates. I almost forgot about this story . My Prayers are with the families of those no longer here and the families of the young men that were arrested.

The people who were killed were still standing in the middle of the road, in the darkness, watching (supporting) an illegal activity. Those that were injured and not killed should also be charged.

There are no innocent victims here. If you're going to stand in the middle of a highway at night, you have to expect the chance you'll get hit by a car. If you're drag racing (organized or not) down a public street at night, you have to expect the chance that you'll lose contol and hit something or someone. Everyone involved in this case was violating the Law and Common Sense. It is very sad that people died, but they put themselves in harms way.

They were racing...what about the racers whom the crazy fools were out there at 3 am watching? They scream justice while their cousins race and someone hits them doing the same....only in PG COUNTY.

How can you call this an organized event? If it was organized, who organized it? Did they have the necessary permits? I hope that the police are still trying to find out who the street racers were in the "organized event" so that they can be charged with the same offense.

Absolutely, there are no victims in this tragic mess. I also agree with Mike from Sherman Oaks, CA, that filing manslaughter charges is wrong. If they are going to charge the pair that hit the crowd, then they should damn sure file manslaughter charges against the "organizers" of the other race that caused people to STUPIDLY and MINDLESSLY stand in the middle of frigging major highway. I don't give a rat's behind what time of day it was.

What a freaking joke. I guess the two racers whom the crowd was watching aren't guilty at all. And neither were the spectators. Figures.

Damn! At first the story was he was taking his brother home from a party or something. Now he was racing somebody? Wow, then he just got in trouble a couple of weeks ago because of his dad or step-dad, one of the two. This dude would do better to just give up. Im sorry to say but this dude has been in the wrong place at the wrong time alot. He needs to just go home and pray.

Theses racers don't Care if your standing in a road or driving in your car. I travel 210 twice a week to pick up my kids from their dads and I say a prayer when my kids get in the car that we make it home safe from getting hit from racing motorcycles or dodging another car from tring to avoid an accident from these racing motercycles. It's plain and simple that they get on this ADRENALIN HIGH from racing and don't give a hoot about what could happen,like loss of innocent peoples lives.

You honestly expect the Prince George's County States Attorney (Jack Johnson) to file charges against those who are really "responsible"??

While I think Jack Johnson is a piece of ****, and quite possibly a more corrupt executive than Marion Barry ever was, he is NOT the State's Attorney in PG county.. it's Glenn Ivey.

But in regards to the charges, I think the two drivers got what they deserved. Yes, the others were doing wrong, BUT they didn't kill anyone as a direct result of their wrongdoing. It's like I'm jaywalking, but you're racing down the road (let's say to a point where if you weren't you wouldn't hit me) but because of your speed you hit and kill me.. we're both wrong, but who's MORE wrong? Me walking across the street would never result in killing multiple people, while recklessly driving and racing is KNOWN to do so.

Totally agree with you. However, manslaughter is too much I think. If they are going to be charged with manslaughter, then everyone there should be charged with something. His license was suspended, so one could argue that if he wasn't driving then this would not have happened. We don't know if another car could have come down the road and did the same thing if he wasn't there. These people were standing in the middle of the road. I feel for their families but they had to know that they could be hit by a car if they are standing in the middle of a major highway.
