Teen Feared Jail, Her Grandmother Says

There are 13 comments on the Hartford Courant story from Oct 11, 2007, titled Teen Feared Jail, Her Grandmother Says. In it, Hartford Courant reports that:

“Why did the cops have to make her go fast? Why did he keep chasing her?”

Bianca Madley, the 16-year-old who was killed when she crashed a stolen car after a police chase Sunday, had been arrested for shoplifting less than two weeks ago and was probably afraid of going to jail, her grandmother said Tuesday.

Norma Gervais said Bianca was a troubled but kind teenager who was struggling to live on her own after her mother, Lynn C. Madley, died in a car accident 10 years ago.

'It affected her. She wanted to live her life, but she was doing all the wrong things,' Gervais said. Read more

who ever "stupid" is you're an asshole. you have no idea what her family and friends had to go through.yea maybe she did do some bad things but death is not the punishment for it.alot of people miss her and don't need people like you saying negative comments. so either show respect or don't say anything.

That is simple logic.
You shop lifted? Well hunny buns, if you didn't want to go to jail THEN WHY DID YOU SHOP LIFT?
Whatwhat? It's not rocket science.
What you put out in this world, you get back.
Cause:
Speeding
steeling a car
Effect:
Death
So shut up you little kids.
Go read and make something of your life instead of being ignorant, boring, little small minded fools.

Stop blaming other people. She is the one who took off in the car and when the police tried to get her to stop she refused. Why blame Ryan, why not blame the owners of the car for having a car, why not blame the people who made the car. Give me a break.
