You crashed while drag racing; you're stupid.

** ATTENTION GRABBING TITLE**

The news channel in my area posted a story earlier today about a 17 year old and 33 year old in the hospital after hitting a fence, parked car, and tree while drag racing in the street. The 17 year old was driving, 33 yr old was passenger. Driver of the other car was not hurt.

People are fliiiiipping their shit over some of the comments. Commets about how the driver was stupid, shouldn't have been racing, etc.

Others are saying people have no compassion, a boy is fighting for his life, how could someone say he was being stupid and wrong, etc.

Honestly, the kid was being a dumbass. I very recently almost lost a friend who was street racing, and totalled his car. My friend was being a complete dumbass. Which we've all told him. Of course, we're all happy he's still here, but he knows as well as we do, that he was being extremely stupid.

What is your take on this?

Agreed. When you do something like that you are asking for your life to be put in danger. If that happens to be the outcome then don't be surprised and ask why me!!

Exactly! And we have a damn track, 15 minutes from here where you can pay like 20 bucks to go do street legal drags. They do them every other weekend!

drag racing not the smartest thing to do but... you know kids are going to do it. It's always sad when they get hurt though

I feel sorry for the family and what they're going through, but that doesn't change the fact that the kid was being a dumbass.  He could have killed innocent people.  The kid's dumbassery must be made clear so that other dumbasses who drag race ...and their parents...can learn from it.

Oh I know. You should see it here every Friday and Saturday. Lol!

We have a drag strip here though. A safer place to do this crap.
