I don't agree that compassion is being shown just because the guy was driving an M5. I like to think that there is enough intelligence on this board for people to be able to form opinions without basing them on the car that was being driven. We're just talking about basic human compassion here.dwasifar said:Why is he entitled to this bend-over-backwards denial, just for being an M5 driver?
As for the argument that we should feel sorry for him because he has suffered a terrible loss - would you make the same argument if he had simply shot the other people? "Oh, how horrible, he lost his family." It's horrible that those people died, but if he is responsible for their deaths (and the story so far strongly suggests that he is), then I don't see why you'd feel any more sorry for him now than if he had simply murdered them in cold blood.
Very well said Jim.Jim Dolan said:Scott, hang in there buddy. I can't imagine the great loss you've suffered. Hearing it from you is good for the rest of us. It puts a human face on the true horror of such events. The loss of your loving wife and brother are too terrible. My heart goes out to you at this time with this wish, may you find peace in all of this and do good things.
Come and talk to us any time you feel the need.
