To Michaels family,Am so sorry if I have over stepped were I should not have. Am just sick of people saying when you drink and drive and kill someone that it's just accident .You see I to know the pain of burying a child though neglect . It just makes me so mad to see people cover his wrong doings up. It might be a wonderful person,But so was the young man he killed. So again am sorry for any hurtful things I have said...Rip and May God help you though your pain and suffering .

Didn't someone say he had heroin on him when he was arrested? DUI or driving impaired doesn't always mean drinking. The family should look into it bc of the murder vs manslaughter and DUI vs aggravated DUI. He may have been drunk & high. Or it may at the very least contribute to another charge to help w/the case.

Have you finally had enough attention for the day? Good grief, instead of hiding behind a fake name on a pathetic site, if your so motivated to make changes, come out of your hiding spot and do something. Go make a positive change in the world. Go speak about death of children by neglect. Go out and make your life useful instead of sitting around talking garbage you know nothing about. This site don't get laws changed, touch lives, or make changes in the world. It tears apart communities, lives, and friendships. It destroys reputations and makes people who postlook like fools. If your so tired of stuff happening, get off your Tush and help your county in a positive way!

What happened to the failure to render aid charge and the leaving the scene of an accident charge? They should be part of his crimes. D.U.I.'s may be a mistake but NEVER an accident. Accidents happen when no one is at fault. Shit does happen. But if one of the parties are high or drunk its a crash, a wreck, but can NEVER be called an accident idiots! Btw the news does not report until they have facts and more than one news station said that this man hit mike and ran then came back. The friend and dad (if he went home) should also be charged with failure to render aid if they waited more than 2 seconds to call 911. I feel like the saddest part in this is that mike walked to work evey day. He didn't have anyone buy him a car, he just payed his bills and never bothered anyone and he's the one that's dead. I will never understand why the wrong doer always gets to live.

I think all of you could use some real facts in your life. God does not care what you think about Nathan, and YOU will be judged for YOUR actions, as he will for his. I KNOW Nathan, he is one of my best friends, and I will fight to the death for him. I think what he did is absolutely horrible and I feel so sorry for Michael and his family and the prices they have to pay for Nathan's irresponsible actions. But Nathan can't bring Michael back, or go back in time to change things. The only thing he can do is ask for the Beach's forgiveness. If they do or don't, that's on their shoulders. And when he asks our merciful Lord for forgiveness, he will not be denied. AND THAT IS WHAT MATTERS! This should be news to all of your ears, because we all have made mistakes. We all sin on a daily basis. And in God's eyes, all sins are equal.
Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written,“Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary,“if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:17-21
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15

There are so many stories being made up over this situation. Why don't everyone wait until next weeks newspaper and the FACTS will come out. Yes he was drinking and hit Michael and he should not have got that low of a bond! But heroin, someone else almost hitting Michael and aiding the paramedics is all hear say until it is proven!

This is a tragedy! It's disgusting how you all have swarmed this topic, and how absolutely inconsiderate the whole thing has turned into! Shame on you all! People are grieving! Many people are, we've seen posts from several states, family members, from both parties, all of them just trying to get a grasp of the whole situation. Trying to understand how it all came to this. You all can give your opinion about how it could have been avoided, how officials could have done their job better, how it was only an accident, and how stupid you think the chatter is... But you're not helping anyone! Rubbing salt into a fresh wounds and being the root of some terrible accusations, ON BOTH SIDES, and a lot of this crap is from the local community! Take a moment to make a casserole for both families, because they are too busy to eat a home cooked meal. Take a moment to drive a little bit further to Kroger, and donate a little bit of money to Mike's family, and practice what you preach! So many of you are saying what if you were the one whose child had just died, but no one is saying, what if your child came to you with such a life changing BURDEN! Of course they're going to protect their child, and fuck if you wouldn't do so yourself. That being said there are MANY holes in the story, but, to sit around and relentlessly insult and gossip, is not healthy OR helpful!
