Good going moron. I bet you feel so proud and cool now that you've killed someone. Some friend you are and you should have killed yourself.

This guys friend wasn't too bright either for getting in the car with a drunk.

How do you stop something like this, some people are destined. Cops cant stop this. It's just a reality, there are some who cant be stopped and The Wall of Pawns is making most of those people out to be like this and 99 percent are,nt anywhere near this and are put through more torture than a murderer or hard criminal because criminals dont have friends and the people of the Wall do and thats wrong to Pawn people to there friends like that.

And your point is??? This article is about two roommates, one of them intoxicated, who got behind the wheel of his car, killed his friend and ruined his own life!

If the Wall of Shame prevents even one of those people from driving drunk again, or worse killing another human being, it's worth it!

Scott Lamm was a good friend of mine, and a former KPHS football teammate. He was full of so much potential and promise, but now it's all gone. Drunk Driving kills, period. Why don't people understand that? I've not once driven druk my entire life, and don't ever plan on doing so. Be Careful this weekend, everyone. If you're too smashed, call a cab, or get a ride home from a Designated driver. Accidents like this are avoidable, and now one of my friends is dead. It doesn't matter if you're 19 or 59, DON'T DRIVE DRUNK!!!

I checked out his myspace page. Very sad that he lost his life before he had an opportunity to mature and take down all of the bong pictures and realize that bragging about being drunk isn't exactly "cool."

Scott was one of my second graders in the Kings Park Central School District. I am shocked his young life ended so tragically. He was one of the good guys. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. What a loss! Hopefully, others will realize booze, drugs and driving and not a good combo.

They never would have made the wall based on this set of circumstances, and same goes for most of these instances. Trust whah I tell you, stop being so stubborn. The wall hasnt helped, or everyone would be doing it.

They would have, if not for crashing into a guardrail and tree. And the fact that Suffolk County doesn't have a Wall of Shame.

That,s the point I made , they couldnt make it far enough to get caught. Even if on the Wall , it would have been same results different area with or with-out a lisence. That,s my take.

Oh, what potential he had and he was one of the good guys... BS! He was riding co-pilot and wasen't paying attention either. If he was so smart and such a good student, He would have used simple mathematics to know how many drink per hour plus body weight = my friend is kablamooed. Now too lives are ruined, I'll rip a fart for the both of them

If this clown was DWI, why was he given an appearance ticket, and not arrested? Was he intoxicated or impaired. I am certainly not trying to justify what he did, but this doesn't make sense.
