Anyone that wouldn't say his actions were "stupid, unwise, and lacking common sense" is just plain ignorant. He made a poor decision and unfortunately it took his life. My heart goes out to all his family & friends. Hopefully others will realize they do need to think before doing and they are not invincible.
Anyone who wouldn't feel the need to post those insensitive thoughts (even if they do have them) HERE in this thread -- where family and friends of the victim may post -- is WISE and considerate
Anyone that would call a teenager killed in an accident "stupid" in a forum such as this is IGNORANT.

Have a great day!

This is a forum to speak your opinions. These comments were not directed toward any one of his friends or family. It is their choice to read them if they'd like. It is just pure common sense that his decision was "stupid." Anyone that thinks otherwise lacks it. In many of my posts I state my empathy for the ones that knew him. I also state that I hope this opens the eyes of others to make wiser decisions. It's sad it has come to this but maybe it will be an eye opener.

ok...wooo woooo...I'm getting dizzy with these STUPID circles...

How about basics here. Basically, you appear to be a person that can dish it out, but can't take it. Ever heard that comment?

You say you are free to call people stupid in your posts, which, I agree, you are welcome to do, if that is your opinion. BUT SO AM I. I call your comment stupid and I'm AGGRESSIVE? If you are going to post like you do, you have to expect that others will throw stuff back at you. Pleae, lets not hear the boo hooo you're aggressive go away crap.

I just want to point out how sensitive we can get when the criticism is directed at us..... you didn't like that I called your remark stupid, and that it lacked sense. You're a disher all right!

Finally....

THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT A PERSON BEING STUPID!!!! WE ALL KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS BOY AND HIS MISTAKE....NO NEED TO POINT THAT OUT AGAIN!

Guys, I had a great idea.

Lets have a foot race across the interstate. The speed limits only 65mph or so, so even in the extremely rare chance we get hit by a car, it's not like we're going to die!

In fact, I have a better idea. We need to have designated stretches of highway where the speed limit is cranked up to 90mph. At these stretches will be designated "pedestrian crossing zones."

I guarantee you that within 2 weeks of having these zones on our states highways, the average IQ of the states population will SKYROCKET.

I'm sure you're right. It's actually a win-win situation as burial services will get way more jobs and this the unemployment rate will drop.
And considering the rock bottom IQ of your belowed president, proposing to him an idea like that and him accepting it isn't that much of a stretch.
The congress isn't made out of rocket scientists either... I'm sure there's an argument to be found that people walk too much and that those zones would create loads of shortcuts and make life more convenient.

Let's go German autobahn with this shit. Remember that most of these shining exemplars to humanity are allowed to drive.

On another thread a family member is blaming the driver, you see, she was allegedly talking on a cell phone when Junior committed suicide by car. At least according to poster “Family Voice”. So, let’s all sue Verizon for creating those attractive nuisances in the first place.

Just to let all of you ignorant people who are saying this kid RAN into the road....to stop talking like you know the real story. You can't believe everything you read in the newspapers. This kid would not intentionally RUN into the road. Unless you were there don't talk. Can I ask you people something? How many of you posting these rude comments actually knew him? I hope you can sleep at night. His parents will read these comments. Think about how you would feel if it was you. Nicole you are stupid and I hope you don't have children because if you do I feel very sorry for the children that will grow up with you as there mother.

For the people who still dont know.
His name was Joszef Michael Szogedi Jr.
15 Years Old
Went to my school: Lewis Mills High School.
He died April 10th at 6:30 because someone was behind him and they were playing manhunt and he decided to run to the other side so he didn't get tagged because he didnt have enough time to go through the storm drain. I believe it was suicide. Because he was always being picked on at school constantly having ppl calling him a fag, douchebag, and other nonsense. And people accused him of raping a mentally challenged girl. And his mother: Rita Szogedi had told us in the burial of Joe that the night before he told her that he "wished god would take him and kill him" because he just didnt want to live any longer and so i think it was either to get away from his tagger of the manhunt game or an easy way to die or get seriously injured to the point where fluid from his spinal cord was coming out his ears when he died on the way to hartford hospital. bless his family, friends, and people that have hearts and ppl that dont say ridiculous things like im glad he died because thats bad karma and it shall come back to you.

No one except who was there will know the REAL story so unless you were don't act like you do either. Nice to know you are above everyone here. The REAL story is he was on the highway when he shouldnt have been. He willingly was at the highway and whether he intentionally ran into the road or was pushed or whatever, he was a child that made a stupid mistake. Kids will be kids, right. Unfrotunately it took his life. Common sense one would htink would be to NOT play near the highway. That's not insensitive, it's common sense. Stating the obvious doesn't make me a bad parent, let alone a bad person. Sorry you feel that way. I've stated how sorry I am for his friends and family and what an unfortunate event this is for everyone. You just seem to look past that. That's fine. Have a good day.

I'm not heartless nor noncaring.... take things as you wish. I simply stated the obvious but i guess shame on me. Maybe that's what's wrong with the world today. STOP SUGAR COATING EVERYTHING! Sad, tragic accident that could have been avoided with some common sense. This is a forum, not a memorial. I stated a simple fact. That doesn't make me wrong. I didnt call the involved and say it. They dont have to read these comments.
