A drug dealer, pimp, or on welfare driving a Mercedes and driving drunk in this town. Normal.


He was neither. He was a hard working, responsible and respectful man. There's more to this story, news is premature on their reporting.


Why mention the dead person was elderly? That's discrimination based on Age.You didn't say the drunk driver was a middle aged.


Bad reporting, stating irrelevant facts.
