People never think.....

Could what I'm about to do....Blow up in my face?

Well maybe the next 10 years will help you think before you do something stupid. I wonder how it feels to know you killed your friend?

Question for stupid people? How did you figure out how to wipe your A..S..S. and not kill yourself in the process?

Well injoy prison..... Hope that drinking was really fun..... 10 years worth of fun!

You got what you deserved for being stupid.

look at the spelling of those making fun of West Virginians.

first off mr "Nuff Said" youre not to bright and your name shows your arrogance, i suggest if you plan to be the arrogant jerk please learn to back it up with proper English and spelling.

second i would ask the author of this story a few questions.

1) how did the person die, was he a passenger on the boat driven by the drunk driver?

2) where were the innocent victims who were injured? were they just crossing the street or were they too passengers in this boat.

3) which side of the border will he spend his time, in ohio or WV?

there are a few more things that peaked my interest but i dont want to wear you out, you know that work stuff is hard enough surely dont want to overwhelm you with questions that should have been answered in the very short uninformative article.

again to those who want to make fun of people in WV being stupid i suggest you get an education, i think most of them are smarter than this bunch and i also know for a fact that a lot of ohioans are either from Kentucky or West Virginia anyway so keep that attitude, it suits you well.

He is a young man and everyone makes mistakes. I would even be inclined to think that if he could not refrain from drinking alcohol while driving the boat, he is likely suffering from alcoholism. I believe the good book says "Judge not lest yea be judged". Merry Christmas Everyone.

Since my life is perfect, I will make comments critical of others and their decisions. Everyone should live their life like mine...perfect, with no mistakes, ever. Oh, and I like to make jokes about people who have died, since I will never lose anyone close to me. Thank you, that is all.

Not only that but the first "to" is "too" and it is not "peaked", it is "piqued". People who live in glass houses......not that I thought this is a spelling or grammar forum but just saying....

My heart goes out to all the families. The sentence seems fair to me. He will be able to attend 12 step classes and hopefully get the help he needs. He certainly will have time to reflect on his actions.

What is 12 step classes? Is that where everyone sets around and tells about all the harm they did when they were drinking and after they are finished, everyone stands up and thanks them for being a stupid drunk.

Alcoholism is nothing but a word used by the medical profession to give them a reason to charge a person for making bad personal choices.

Going to prison will not help this man, he needs a facility that will address his needs. Just one more person in the Ohio prison system that YOU will be paying for. If anyone of you had a clue what Ohio prisons are like, I am sure your attitude would change. People who live in glass houses......take the time to fully examine Ohio prisons before you open your mouth
