Alyssa, you really need to seek professional help to deal with your anger and grief issues. I would also suggest that you spend more time in school so that you gain a better understanding of the English language, spelling and grammar. If the only information regarding your uncle's death is gleaned from this forum or the news media, than you are sadly misinformed. You would do yourself and your relatives a big favor by praying for both families instead of posting mean and ill-informed messages on this forum. May your dear uncle rest in peace and the young man who killed him be given the strength to carry on.

there was no report the man who it him was drunk... so STOP talking like he was a drunk driver... so there were beer cans in his car... you know people actually take them back to the store to get money back?!! WOW crazy thought huh?? he might actually have had them in the car because he was taking them somewhere... not that he was shotgunning them the night he got in the accident... CRAZY thought!!

Sorry for your loss but you really need anger management classes and alot, I mean alot of English grammar classes.... Focus on trying to better yourself.. Nobody was there and nobody knows what really happened. By the sounds of it if your uncle was lurking around in someone's bushes at 4:30 in the morning then don't you suppose he could have possibly stumbled into the road? I'm not saying he deserved to be killed but accidents happen.. I'm sure the man who hit him didn't go out that night thinking he wanted to run somebody over..

I am not trying to be mean. I'm just saying that it's an unfortunate accident and you might want to focus your anger in a healthier way.

as for the shot glasses in the car. I have some in my car right now too. Generally, people use their cars to transport things. Theres nothing wrong with having shot glasses in your car. in fact, you could be 16 and have shot glasses in your car, since unless there is actual traces of alcohol in them, it cannot be proven that you used them to drink alcohol. It is just a glass.

and seeing as you are "family", i assume that you have read the actual police report, and you would clearly be able to see that in the report the police state your uncle is at fault for the accident, since he was crossing the road not in a crosswalk. Wes is in trouble because he did not stop. had he stopped and called an ambulance or whatever, then none of this would have happened. Wes would not be going to trial, he would just carry on with his life since it is your uncles fault for being in the road. regardless of whether his back was to traffic or not, hes still not supposed to be walking in the road.

as the other person up above said, most people dont just walk around busy roads and into peoples bushes at 4:30 in the morning when their not drunk and high on stuff.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. Neither family is happy about what happened that night. Focus. Focus your energies on bettering yourself. Nothing is going to change what happened to your Uncle. Further more before you vent, you also have to be sure of what your saying and not what your picking up off the streets and in the media. You keep mentioning that Wes is well off. Where are you getting your info. They come from a middle class family just like most everyone in this area.

Wow I am sorry for his family's loss. How horrible. Fuck hit and run drivers. There's no excuse for that shit. If you hit something you stop and survey the damage. "I THOUGHT IT WAS A MAILBOX LOL" is just an excuse made by a person who was too chickenshit to take responsibility for his actions, probably a product of his environment if you know what I mean.
I love everyone who's talking shit about the deceased. What the fuck are you trying to prove? He's dead, he can't read your comments. Oh boy are you badass, you're talking trash about a dead person! You're just going to upset those left behind, although since apparently you all think it's completely okay to drink and drive and do a hit and run, I'm sure you don't give a shit about his family. Then again it must be hard to care about anything with your head so far up your ass.

what you people need to understand is yes, when they tested him there was alcohal in his system. But, it was under the legal limit. They cannot in turn that that information and twist it to say that he WAS drunk when he was driving. Because you don't know if he got home and had a beer before be or not... so all of you that are saying he was a drunk driver are idiots. Also, Alyssa get some freaking help. Go see a couselor or talk to your parents or something. You are a bad impression on society. Learn some english, because all of these "disses" you give out just make you look worse in all honesty because you have t re read them a million times to find out what you actually are trying to say

Alyssa,

The word is you, that's Y-O-U, if you can't spell it, just use the letter U, and most people would understand. A brain is a horrible thing to waste, start using yours.
What school system provided your education? I want to make sure my children don't have to go there.
