    Sorry, I have no sympathy for the stupid.........

    They went to Knotts Berry Farm. Orange County driver was 16, did not have a permit or license and was driving an expensive BMW. Fuck mourning these rich people, who are the parents and how does a 16 year old afford a BMW and who has never driven before? Maybe the wealthy parents should be held accountable for their deaths, oh, the 16 year old driver survived while he killed his friends. icon_twisted.gif

    That BMW is like 20 years old. But wealth isn't always something to pick at. Back in high school, a couple of my friends would sneak out their parents cars late at night. And they were old beater cars.

    Pretty strange story overall. They interviewed the parents/relatives of one of the girls that died. Apparently, they didn't know any of the other kids in the car. I think this is a case of meeting random strangers through the internet, and not knowing what they got into.

    the time to structure your child's values is when they are like 8 or 10 years old. After they are 16 they are mostly off on their own.

    To bad these didnt make it but in another 15years there can be replacements.

    A lot of these wealthy folks just love to give everything to their teenaged kids to get them out of their hair. The wealthy parents are too obsessed with making more money and their own high status. Their kids unfortunately end up being secondary in importance.

    I would guess that the vast majority of wealthy parents love their kids just as much as lower income people do. And they don't feel the need to be niggardly with them just because they may have grown up poor or there are less well off people in the world.

    Some of the nicest people I've known grew up in an affluent family.

    (1). The article reports it as a 1995 BMW, and from the wheel rims I can see that is accurate. Kelly Blue Book gives that a value of approximately 3K. How are we deducing wealthy?

    (2). Kids do stupid things. I don't mean to excuse their behavior, just to say that I did stupid things too, rolled the proverbial dice (often without knowing it) and didn't come up short. That these kids came up short is life, but I think it's sad.

    (3). IF the driver had wealthy parents you can bet that the lawsuits will be forthcoming. First, the car likely has a solid insurance policy (though it'll hit limits with just a single person's claim--let alone 5 and the injured driver's medical bills). Second, the family can be invoked to pay under a "negligent entrustment" theory of liability with "respondeat superior" if they allowed their kid to take the car (even leaving keys out or on a key ring can make a viable claim--the parents didn't even have to hand the keys over to the boy).

    The injured boy's family better lawyer up, quick.

    A lot of sad, sick comments here. Most of the rich kids I've known in my life are high achievers and work hard, just like their parents.

    I couldn't begin to count the number of weekend nights I drove stoned out of my gourd when I was in high school. Everybody smoked pot in my high school (students, that is); this was in the late 60s and early 70s.

    It is very sad for any child to die - especially for their parents.

    But if no one died, (or if not enough children died before becoming old enough to procreate) the earth would be swimming in human flesh. Death, like life, is a part of the natural world.

    Wow. As a parent of three teens my heart goes out to the families. As someone who had a teen brother die in an accident I know perfectly well how the families feel. The lack of empathy shown in some of the posts here makes me feel sad for the posters, frankly.

    A lot of the cold responses were DELETED. There's a "delete post" button for each entry you create.

    I was the second person to comment and I didn't see anything. icon_confused.gif I think some are just reading too much into things.

    @Kevex,

    The fact that you are, currently, shown as the second to comment, does not mean that posts before and/or after you weren't deleted. You do understand that posts can be completely deleted correct? The only record would be if someone "quoted" from that deleted post.

    Also, I specifically remember 2 posts that are no longer here now. So there were at least 2 posts deleted by two different (seemingly) members.

    Irvine (Orange County) to Knotts Berry Farms is a 21 mile drive, one way. With traffic, a little more than 1/2 hour on the 5 freeway mostly. 1) the 16 year old HAD NO LICENSE OR PERMIT 2) maybe this BMW was older and was his first car but he was not supposed to drive it, period, at least have a adult, over 21, or who is a legal guardian in the car with a valid drivers license. I assume the parents paid for registration and insurance 3) if the 16 year old wanted to take his car and friends for a joy ride, they should have stuck to their immediate neighborhood and its local streets, not jump on a freeway. I am truly sorry for their losses, maybe next time the parents will keep tabs on their teenagers whereabouts. Driving is a privilege, not a right

    In the 70's 80's, as long as we lived under our parents roof, this was the rule, until the age of 18
