The family and friends of the dead boy wanted a harsher sentence than what Tobin got.
"Police say that after a night of drinking at a nearby pub, Tobin's friend ended up trapped under a truck about an hour after local bars closed.
Tobin and two friends piled into a rented Dodge Ram pickup truck shortly before 3 a.m. and did doughnuts on the fifth, uncovered, level of a parking garage while other friends watched, police said.
The victim, an Ottawa man, either fell from a passenger seat or the truck's bed as it spun around in circles and swerved, police say."
From this excerpt, one can see the death was a result of youth foolery ending in tragedy.The victim probably was also drunk.
Then I still remember Laura Szendreis' case where by a very nice girl was batted in the head by a young man who no one ever expected to do something like this.He was never in trouble. Always quiet.
We know the boys' family personally going back to kindergarten.
Everyone was upset during this time because someone was going around hitting women in the head from behind but until Laura, no one died.
Then to finally find out who did it??
Well , one could say this was very disturbing to say the least.
From what was written on the internet, people described the boy as a monster.
Another Ted Bundy.
But knowing the boys' family personally I could just cry because this is a tragedy.
Two young people destroyed, for nothing.
How was it no one saw it coming?
We as a community, failed this boy.
We pay more attention to minority issues and fight in wars where more people die, while our own childrens' eyes sit watching, in sorrow, hurting.
So I have to again go back in time and again resift the reasons why it is so important to allow kids to be kids
and not burden them with grown up issues which do nothing but confuse.Kids do not know how to self censor.
Media is very much to blame because not only do they propagate misinformation but they also push bad things for financial gain. When you ask them to print the truth, they say if they did, they would lose advertising.
So if the advertising was coming mostly from say Mafia??? they would never print anything against the mafia or face the prospect of closing down. So if they can't print the truth, then why do people. communities need them?
Kids read and believe what they print.
When you help to buy and sell peoples' souls, I'd have to say a line is crossed.
Offering kids birth control and abortions without parent consent or knowledge,
Pushing of alternative lifestyles in high school before kids have their own
inner selves sorted out.
Saying things like free sex is natural and normal before establishing what separates us from a lowly animal which has rules to follow.
Promoting sex before marriage as ok
Promoting individualism before a child is ready to stand alone or even vote.
Pushing that marijuana is ok.
I can go on and on because there is a lot to say today.
Kids should not be provided with info they are not ready for.
More importantly kids should have the love and support of their parents in a stable environment.
Parents should have the ability to control their kids.
Parents do not have the right to live a so called adult life, under their childrens' noses.
Liberal ideology dissolves and destroys families by pushing ideas kids can't handle and who then are lost in the society jungle.
They say everything is ok for a vote.
Are we not here to live for and protect our children or do we live just for ourselves?
If we are here to just live for ourselves then our purpose for existence is over.
There is no future to look forward to.
The future is always about youth.
Once upon a time it was about us.
The future lies now with our babies and their babies.
It is every parents' responsibility to say NO to child abuse, regardless of where it comes from and it comes through tv music,radio,schools,gangs,news,computers .It comes from within families themselves, from irresponsible adults , disregarding, for a buck, the rights of innocents.
No one escapes the last one.We are all guilty. lol
Everything one says and does is viewed by innocent hungry eyes searching for knowledge, who learn all the mistakes .
It takes self discipline to learn, to educate oneself.
This self discipline doesn't stop once you graduate but is a life discipline you carry all your life,passing it on to others because it is the right thing to do.
People are not born individuals. They are born dependents and grow into individuals after being exposed to the world and learning from it.
But there is such a thing as over saturation.
When children kill, there comes a time to say woah!
Hold on there and pull in the reins.
Society, as it stands today, can't do this.
Parents can't. Churches can't. Government can't. Teachers can't.
Try to expose evil and then wait to get trampled over by it.
It will sooner put a noose over your neck than loose its' grip on the young .
And then we watch the young die and point fingers at each other.
Why did we not all hold hands before and stand up to what's wrong in our world and say no?
Freedom, is to have a right to say no and no one should have to be afraid to say it.
It's too late to cry after blood is spilt.
If one doctor doctors another doctor, does the doctor who doctors the doctor doctor the doctor the way the doctor he is doctoring doctors? Or does he doctor the doctor the way the doctor who doctors doctors?

There was this lady who was visiting a church one Sunday. The sermon seemed to go on forever, and many in the congregation fell asleep. After the service, to be social, she walked up to a very sleepy looking gentleman, extended her hand in greeting, and said, "Hello, I'm Gladys Dunn."
And the gentleman replied, "You're not the only one ma'am, I'm glad it's done too!!"
