VIDEO: Guy With Half a Head Warns Against Impaired Driving

 Carlos Sosa Mugshot 1

Carlos Sosa, 27. Police photo.

If you’ve spent much time online, odds are you’ve seen a photo of Carlos Sosa. The 27-year-old Miami man has a long rap sheet–he’s been arrested on charges including trespassing, marijuana possession and breach of peace–but it’s not the charges against him that are remarkable, it’s the fact that he only has half a head. In the video below, an upbeat and remarkably functional Carlos recalls the accident that left him disfigured and, pulling on a blunt, warns others against drunk driving and “drugness” driving.

It looks like he hasn't changed. He seems to think it is funny. If that happened to someone who truly regreted it, they would be in tears and talking with students at schools, not in front of a camera his homie was holding.

How can he function ? Vital parts of his brain are gone. The frontal lobe.....isn't that what they used to removd to "cure" mental patients in the 1930's and 1940's which usually made them vegetables ?
I can't handle this. Too gross and disturbing.

He's hardly someone to set an example.

One can show all the devasting results of drinking, using drugs, cell phones, etc. and driving one wants to people but there's still that thing that they will say to themselves, "that's so awful but it won't happen to me", teens especially are subject to that thinking. Along with all the accidents scenes and talks by those who have suffered harm, it might be a good idea to place a lot more of the focus on being responsible. Stress the fact that a moving vehicle can be and is a deadly weapon; that the driver is responsible not only for his/her safety but also the safety of everyone else in the vehicle and others on and/or near the road whether they be driving; walking, bicycling, whatever. It often seems that the main focus is on the awful things that can and do happen when one indulges in activities which don't mix well with driving but a whole lot of people and especially teens still do them. Perhaps, while continueing to talk about those things, we would get better results by making responsibility for others as well as oneself the primary focus.
