    Personal responsibility

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/09/28/ind...ash/index.html

    This person is blaming the police for the death of his friends in an automobile accident. He apparently forgot that he was drinking underage, lost control of his car and since none were wearing a seatbelt, all were ejected from the vehicle. It is quite possible that the police didn't do a really diligent search. This was the middle of the night and in Indiana it is dark at that time of night. They could have been easily missed...not the first time that has happened. Interesting story.
    And if men are incapable of managing their own affairs, what explains the ability of a relatively small number of them to manage the lives of so many others?

    Sad story indeed. No doubt they could have been missed. A person's body can get thrown quite far when it is ejected from a vehicle. SOmethign tells me, we will here more about this in the days ahead.

    Re: Personal responsibility

    Ummmmm from what I read, the police weren't driving, the police didn't run him off the road, the police didn't shoot any of his buddies, the police didn't say "yeah, there are people out there but we gotta make a run to duncan doughnuts - screw 'em"

    I see that someone put his friend's lives in his own drunken hands, and through that blatent disregard for their safety and welfare, killed them. I see that he should be held accountable and own up to this horrid thing he did instead of trying to project his well earned blame onto individuals who protect and serve and had little if anything to do with the deaths of these individuals.

    Re: Personal responsibility

    Of course the author of the story takes the side of the innocent african american kid instead of the evil police officers

    How is this even news worthy? Cars don't go careening off the side of the road at decent speeds when the driver is sober, even if they blow a tire. Darwin's evolution working almost at its finest... but it missed 2 of them.

    Unfortunately depending on the laws of the particular state he might win.

    There is something called contributory negligence.

    In some states it is admissible in a civil suit and some not.

    When I took a business law class there was a particular case I remember.

    16 year old male working for a road construction crew. Asked if he could drive the bulldozer. Was told no, and under no circumstances to do so. At his age it was not even possible to get the license required to operate this heavy equipment. This was all explained to him.

    During lunch the kid steals hot wires the bulldozer and rolls it injuring himself.

    In court the road construction company lawyer was not allowewd to tell the jury that he broke the law by even driving it. He won his case because all the jury knew was he was at work and injured in a bulldozer accident.

    Re: Personal responsibility

    according to what I read, the police said they told them there was no one else involved.

    but yeah, drinking, driving, not wearing a seatbelt = a 10 million against the police!

    Sad to say but the state will probably settle out of court and pay him but he should be in jail for manslaughter

    Re: Personal responsibility

    As always, looking for someone else to blame. The parents should be mad at the POS that wrecked the car. We won't find out if the cops searched or not....

    Cops who are definietly to blame are the one's in Kings County that didn't bother to ping the missing guys wife who crashed in the rivine. If they did that on day 2 or 3 then she would not be in the drain like she is....
