    I’m gonna go ahead and say she’s dumb too.. It sounds like you might have a personal affiliation with the person who caused this.. but what she did was negligent and overall idiotic you can’t begin to try and defend the individual especialy when she had another passenger in the car, at night, on THE DARKEST ROAD IN KENOSHA?!? End of story.

    Since you all have SO much to say, how about you know the whole story first. You don’t know where she could have been headed. Maybe there was an emergency. She obviously didn’t know that was going to happen. Accidents happen all the time, and I HIGHLY doubt that she went down that road with the intentions to hurt someone. If this were your daughters or sisters, you all wouldn’t being judging so harshly. When did God give anyone else permission to judge anyone, because last time I checked, it was HIS job and HIS job only. Maybe she made some choices that she now regrets, but people make mistakes. We’re human, and people like you disgust me.
