Smoking pot killed this guy!
I think if "children," as you call them, knew their friend died because he was too stoned to swim, they may think twice before they let weed ruin their lives.
You're real intelligent. We'll hide this from them. Yea, that works.

I don't understand what you wrote. Your syntax and grammar are not well developed nor is your logic. I also suggest that when you decide to comment on such a delicate subject, you do some research on the subject.

Stupid??? Look that word up in the dictionary if you know how to read and you will more then likely see a picture of LEO right next to yours! I know that facts of the case probably better then you. Fact is the kid was high and swimming fully clothed in the bay and drowned. Maybe he should have done what the rest of us in this town do when we want to swim. You may have heard of a little place called the beach. A beach which is fully staffed with lifeguards. This is no tragedy. When you do stupid things.... Stupid things tend to happen. So maybe you analyze the facts yourself.
RIP LEO

You are wrong; What you have stated are not facts. I would inform you on what the facts are but you don't deserve that much nor is it your business. It isn't nice to lie, specially not about a deceased child, shame on you.
