Milton High School teenager killed in drinking and driving wreck, two other teens injured!

A Milton High School student was killed in an early morning wreck that injured two others, one of whom is also a student at Milton High, according to police.

Adam Stephens, 19, died in the single-vehicle wreck that occurred at 2:37 a.m. Tuesday near the intersection of New Providence and Dorris Roads, about a mile away from Milton High, said Milton Police Department spokesman Capt. Shawn McCarty.

Police say Stephens and two male teens, whose names have not been released, were riding in a 1972 Chevy pick-up truck when the 18-year-old driver lost control. The vehicle flipped at least two times, ejecting the driver and the 16-year-old male.

The two injured teens are in serious condition at North Fulton Regional Hospital, McCarty said.
No others were involved in the wreck. Police believe alcohol and speed played a role in the crash.

Every year as spring rolls around and as flowers bloom and grass grows, selfish and irresponsible teens in every state take to the road to "celebrate" their prom, their graduation, even just summer vacation, and along for they ride comes alcohol. They drink because its "fun", its "cool", they get a "buzz" and because they are teens nothing bad can happen. So in their selfishness they put others at risk, they put fathers and mothers and young children in other cars at risk, again, for a good time.

Let me be very clear, I am GLAD that the only people hurt and killed in this "accident" were the ones who made the CHOICE to drive the streets in the middle of the night drinking and speeding through this town.

This is not a tradgedy, a tradgedy would have been if they would have hit and hurt or killed or crippled someone else.

Death does not always come from old age or disease it comes too from poor decisions.

To have such strong opinions on this subject I am sure that you have experienced a loss at the hands of a drunk driver. However, your comments are nothing but hateful. Adam has a family and Adam has friends who are certainly devastated by this loss. The CHILDREN involved in this accident are simply that, CHILDREN. I hope that Adam's parents, who are friends of mine, never come across your comments and your so called "gladness" over the loss of their son. Surely you would agree that the only joy that could have possibly emerged from this is if all three boys walked from the accident unscathed. You say that you are glad that a family was not killed in this accident, but you should take a second to consider the incredible pain that this family is experiencing. No one deserves what has happened to Adam.

CRS said...

Joy? ARE YOU JOKING? THEY WERE DRUNK AND OUT AT 2:30 IN THE MORNING!

The family has themsleves to blame, i do not feel sorry for them for one second.

They are not children they are 19 years old. Stop babying these miscreients and maybe they would grow up.

THIS HAPPENS EVERY YEAR so these friends you speak of, they never learn the lesson.

If more people spoke out passionately maybe this could be avoided.

WOW, I hate to even add a comment and fuel your fire. But the ridiculous statements you are making deserve comment. People who wish death upon others, or who are glad in the death of others are sinners, whose punishment will not come in this life.
Please keep your opinions to yourself as this is a difficult time for the family and friends of these human beings, which is what they are regardless of their activities.
I certainly hope that nothing like this ever happens to you or your family, how guilty you would feel...

By the way, I think there is a difference between speaking out against drunk driving, and the pain it causes so many people, and saying you are glad for the death of a human. You may want to analyze this, I believe it shows your immaturity.

Anonymous said...

wow CRS you are beyond out of line here. Yes they were wrong to be drinking and driving but to say you're glad someone died is ridiculous. Kids make mistakes, and sadly this was a tragic one. But that does not give you the right to say you were glad someone died. What if it was you're little brother or best friend. Even good kids make mistakes, no matter what kind of family they've been raised up in, good or bad, people make mistakes, and you are out of your f*cking mind to say that.

CRS said...

Yes you all are right, it would be so much better if he were alive to do it again!

Give me a break!

CRS said...

I did not wish death IDIOT, I said i was glad he was dead and not someone else. LEARN TO READ.

CRS said...

If this was my brother or best friend I would say the same thing.

And I truly doubt that all of you who say how out of line I am would say the same thing if your family does not make it home tonight because of a drunk teenager, would it be just a mistake then?

No I suspect not.

You are such a loser, and don't bother responding to that, I am not going to check your insignificant comments anymore. Because the real person who needs to be judging you right now is much more important than me.

Shame on you. Adam was a friend of mine.

Well then shame on you, anonymous, for not being a good enough "friend" to stop him from driving drunk!!

CRS said...

Yes, shame on me, that your "friend" got in a car with drunks and was speeding in the middle of the night and died.

I think its actually shame on you.

CRS said...

well said Jess.

The whole thing is these kids will lay flowers at the crash site, talk about how sad it is but the real question is will they tell their friends to stop drinking? Will they take the persons keys who will be drunk at the graduation party in a couple weeks? Will the parents stop being the kids friends and start parenting? Many of the same kids who are "sad" today will be drinking and driving after the graduation parties and parties over the summer. And that is what is truly sad.

S/he could have been a good friend.
If someone wants to drink, they're going to drink. Adam wasn't driving drunk, nor had he ever. I am %100 sure on that. Adam was someone who had fun every chance he got and he brightened everyone's day. He was the nicest person I have ever met. Regardless if he and his friends made mistakes, he was still a great person

Phillip said...

he snuck out you dumb shits. OP is an insensitive douche.

CRS said...

I think you need to learn what a "great person" is....it is not someone who gets in a car with people who have been drinking, speeds and puts others in danger.

A "great person" would have never gotten in that truck nor would he have allowed his "friends" to get in that truck. A great person, a leader would have called someone to pick them up even if it meant getting in trouble.

CRS said...

His sneaking out somehow obsolves the parents?

Anonymous said...

This is defiantly sad that a life was lost. I never really knew Adam despite him going to my school, but I defiantly saw him in the halls on a few occasions and I knew his girlfriend Tara pretty well. My prayers are with his friends and family.

No, the parents just did not know, so therefore had no control. im not going to debate this over blogger, ping me on AIM if you wish to discuss further: realn0whereman

CRS said...

No hate 1:38, plain and simple, I have no sympathy or empathy in these situations, they happen yearly and the only good is the fact than an innocent bystander to their recklessness was not hurt or killed.

Teenagers are not stupid, they know right from wrong.

CRS said...

My goal, plain and simple, is for this NEVER to happen again.

Courtney said...

How dare you say Adam wasn't a great person. It's unfortunate, but he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. For you to come on the internet and blog about someone who you don't even fucking know and then talk shit about him really shows how much of a "great person" you are. If you can't make your opinions heard in real life, then you are a coward. It's people like you that deserve to die young in car crashes. Not the innocent people who have family and friends who care about them and love them. You need to get off of your computer and realize that the world is bigger than the size of your computer screen. You hurt more people with your slander. Remember, karma's a bitch. You can blog and spread hate all you want, but it will come back to you. I promise you that. Now please, do us all a favor and get in your car and drive into the chattahoochee river.

Anonymous said...

He was in the wrong place at the wrong timt? Huh? He made the choice to sneak out. He made the choice to drink. He made the choice to get in that truck. HE MADE CHOICES. It was not the wrong place or the wrong times, he made BAD choices. How sad you are too young or too stupid to see that.

Anonymous said...

He was not cashing a check at the bank and got caught in a bank robbery, that's wrong place, wrong time, his decisions last night cost him his life.

Courtney said...

Alright Anon. I'm not young or stupid. I'm a 20 year old college student who has experienced more life and more death than you ever will. I'm one of Adam's many friends who care about him and won't stand to have some stupid cunt and her followers trash him over the internet. Say your name Anon and at least have a backbone when you want to trash someone online. If you can't even do that, then your opinion means no more than the original posters.

Courtney said...

Oh, and just for the record for all of you who don't know shit about shit. Adam wasn't drinking.

Anonymous said...

You know that for a fact? I doubt it. If he was sober that makes it even worse that he got in that truck.

heather said...

He made terrible choices, if you want to be sad then you should, no one can take that away, but if others are not said because of the sheer recklessness of the three young men in the truck then you really can not be mad at them. At the end of the day all the choices you make have repurcussions. If he had chosen to stay home it is safe to assume he would be alive today. She should spend your time helping your friends make good choices.

Adam was a son,brother, friend and classmate. No ones mistakes deserve to end with their death. Adam was an amazing person with an incredible family. IF YOU DON'T KNOW HIM AND HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY...DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL.its always best to keep your mouth closed. If Adams family discovers this you should be ashamed considering they didn't make any mistakes they are just deal with the loss of their son and brother..
I love you Adam.. RIP

WOW...do you have nothing else to do in your boring ass life then to bash a victim of a tragic accident. No one deserves death and by you saying that your judging...which means you obviously need to read the bible. you need to get a taste of life and i hope this is never how you have to taste it. Maturity reaches everyone at different times in their lives and this was not a mature decision but a teenage like one. If you didnt know him then get the fuck off this blog you self centered douche.

look at it, then tell me that you're glad that this boys death is the consequence of a typical decision people of ALL driving ages choose to make. a whole family IS broken because of this and im sure his parents wish they were dead too. i honestly feel sorry for you and your ignorance. fuck karma, your decision to be such a horrible person will cause your life to be just as horrible.

Jess shame on you for being so fucking retarded.

Why should anyone value this kids life when he did not value his own life?

Anonymous said...

Drinking and driving is not a typical decision, getting in cars with drunks is not a typical decision, most people do not drink and drive. There were a long series of CHOICES that lead to this, that's the reality. The sooner in life you realize all your choices have consequences and repurcussions the better off you will be in life.

Emily the only ignorant person is you. You quantify his actions and justify them and fail to see others could have been hurt or killed by his "good time". I would love to see you talk to people who have lost loved ones to drunk drivers tell them how great your friends are who got in a truck drunk and barreled down the roads of Alpharetta at high speeds putting a community at risk. They cared about no one but themselves and their good time.

Courtney said...

To the Anon above me; Fuck you. I dare you and any of the rest of you who are trashing Adam and the London family to go and tell them to their faces what you think of their sons. Go on and tell them how worthless and stupid their child's lives are. While you're at it, go and tell Adam's mother how you're glad he's dead. Go on. No takers? I thought so. You all are so brave when it comes to posting anonymously on the internet, but I guarantee if you ever even had the PRIVELEGE to be in the presence of either of their families and true friends, that you wouldn't dare say a damn word. Honestly people, if you wouldn't say these things to someone's face, why come on the internet and say it? Stop hiding behind your monitors. If you feel so strongly about how you are glad Adam's dead, then identify yourselves. Let the rest of the world see you for the worthless pieces of shit you really are. Stand up and be counted.

Anonymous said...

Courtney dear, get a hold of yourself. I do not respect people who drink and drive and underage drink and then their friends who do the same things want me to feel sorry when they wreck and die. Court, whens the last time you drank and drive? I think the person you are really mad at is yourself. Because you weren't a good enough friend to tell them underage drinking and driving drunk were not good ideas. I highly doubt this was the first time they were out in the middle of the night, driving and drunk, only this time they didn't make it homw as they had probably dozens of times before.

Anonymous said...

These kids thought nothing of others, only themselves. Face it Courtnry he wasn't thinking about you or his family when he made these choices that led to his death.

Anonymous said...

For me, this isn't necessarily an argument about drunk driving. Yes, it is bad and people should not do it and the consequences they face have been brought upon themselves. The thing that I am frustrated with is that...CRS..you do not have respect for the deceased. Yes it was wrong and stupid for him to get in the car and it's great that you want to put your opinion out there because drunk driving is horrible. BUT, that is all you should say about the incident, that it was stupid and you do not condone it or have sympathy. You shouldn't say that you're GLAD he died. I think that's what most people are upset with because you should never be GLAD that someone's life has ended, despite the circumstances.

Spencer Michael Clark said...

oh my fucking god, now i do not wish death on anyone and i feel sorry for my friends who new adam as well as the families of the three boys who where involved but CRS is right they did make the choice and so there is no one else to blame but them however u crs are still in the wrong for what you said now i must ask adam or any of the other boys because if you didnt than you need to fuck off and mind your own damn buisness

Anonymous said...

Quite frankly, I am glad too that it was not someone in another car who had not been drinking that got killed in the end. That would have been a tradgedy. Hard to have any real sympathy when the individuals decisions are so poor.

I am a parent of two teens, one the same age as Adam. Upon reading this blog and comments I see that there is some anger, as there should be, on the part of CRS. His expression of that anger took an unfortunate route, that of indicating gladness at the boy's death. This is what shocks the readers and what could have been rephrased.

But the other things pointed out, mostly by CRS and sometimes by others, and these are the things that SHOULD cause anger, are:
1. Why weren't the parents more involved with these kids, that they should be out that late on a school night a week or two before finals? OK, Adam snuck out, and perhaps the brothers did too. But it is this very act of 'sneaking out' that is borne of parenting that is less than completely involved with the kids. I could go into this more if you need but I hope you understand what I am trying to say.

2. No one yet raised the issue of access to alcohol by underage youths. Yes, I know it happens all the time. Apparently so much that it's not even comment-worthy any more. But someone over the age of 21 is facilitating this, right? A so-called 'adult'. Aren't these people responsible for these tragedies? They may be the parents themselves, who do not take adequate precautions to block access to their own stash. I don't know, but what happened to blaming these people? I was young once myself, and young people, especially males, make stupid choices that are often borne of the need to 'belong'. It is up to the ADULTS (and I mean that in every sense of the word) to guide these inexperienced people through life.

3. Tragedies, particularly when it concerns deaths of young people (are there any other kinds of tragedies?) have always happened and will continue to happen. This doesn't mean that adults can slack off; it doesn't mean that youngsters can stop thinking or listening to adults, it just means that such things are part of the fabric of life. I lost my 23 year old brother when I was 11. Yep, auto accident. Yep, late at night. Alcohol, I don't know, I was too young for them to tell me (yes, this was a more innocent age) and I never brought it up later.

Adam is gone now. The lives of the two brothers are changed forever. Nothing will alter that, but as someone (CRS?) pointed out, the only good that we can extract from this is that you other young people learn AND spread the word to others, often those younger than yourselves who will one day look up to you for guidance. Assuming you make it to that sort of age.

Amy said...

What happened, yes, it is a terrible tragedy! However I hope you can turn your hate for CRS and his comments into a fight against Drunk Drivers. Adam and his buddies made a poor choice that ultimately cost him his life and I an thankful that no innocent bystanders were killed. I have no idea who Adam is, but I am sure he was loved very much, but you cannot blame people for hating the decision he made that night and I think a few people on here are saying "I'm glad it was him that died from his own bad choice rather than a mother and child that were coming home from a family function" for instance. Not "I'm glad the kid is dead"...at least that what I hope they are saying. We all make poor choice in life...some deadly

Chelsea said...

"Yes you all are right, it would be so much better if he were alive to do it again!

Give me a break!"

Just a little information for you CRS, Adam was not the one driving, so the fact that he is dead and might have been alive to "do it again" means nothing. I think you should get your story straight before you begin to pass judgement on anyone. I am friends with all three boys involved in the accident. They are all children, just as I am. That is no excuse for their actions, I believe they are dumb for drinking and allowing an inebriated person behind the wheel of a car. But, regardless of what they could or could not have done to change the outcomes of that night, they didn't. So, please have some compassion for the family and friends of Adam, David, and Andrew, or stop talking about it all together.
As far as your opinions of my friends, I will disregard them. I am praying for you and I truly hope that you will open your eyes and discover that not everything happens the way we want, and if it doesn't, there is no necessity of your comments.

You are entitled to your opinions, but don't expect anyone to agree with you if you are going to lash out at the friends and families of a deceased teenager. You are really pathetic. Truly and in every sense of the word.

Chelsea

CRS said...

Chelsea, I am well aware he was not the driver and posted that.

Don't waste your prayers on me as I am not out drinking and driving and speeding and putting lives in danger as your "friends" were.

You should pray for your "friend" who may still have killed his younger brother as he is in critical condition. He did kill his "friend". Again, all this was in the name of a good time.

Young lady, no everything does happen the way we want. Life is rarely expected. Your friends showed disregard for their own lives and the lives of everyone in that community when they got in the car and barreled down the road after boozing it up. It was selfish and showed a disregard for everyone but themselves.

You want me to show compassion but I am not compassionate for such reckless actions.

This is not Virginia Tech where innocent young kids trying to get an education were murdered.

This is three selfish people who could think no further than one night and one good time.

7 Stages of Grief...

1. SHOCK & DENIAL-
You will probably react to learning of the loss with numbed disbelief. You may deny the reality of the loss at some level, in order to avoid the pain. Shock provides emotional protection from being overwhelmed all at once. This may last for weeks.

2. PAIN & GUILT-
As the shock wears off, it is replaced with the suffering of unbelievable pain. Although excruciating and almost unbearable, it is important that you experience the pain fully, and not hide it, avoid it or escape from it with alcohol or drugs.

You may have guilty feelings or remorse over things you did or didn't do with your loved one. Life feels chaotic and scary during this phase.

3. ANGER & BARGAINING-
Frustration gives way to anger, and you may lash out and lay unwarranted blame for the death on someone else. Please try to control this, as permanent damage to your relationships may result. This is a time for the release of bottled up emotion.

You may rail against fate, questioning "Why me?" You may also try to bargain in vain with the powers that be for a way out of your despair ("I will never drink again if you just bring him back")

4. "DEPRESSION", REFLECTION, LONELINESS-
Just when your friends may think you should be getting on with your life, a long period of sad reflection will likely overtake you. This is a normal stage of grief, so do not be "talked out of it" by well-meaning outsiders. Encouragement from others is not helpful to you during this stage of grieving.

During this time, you finally realize the true magnitude of your loss, and it depresses you. You may isolate yourself on purpose, reflect on things you did with your lost one, and focus on memories of the past. You may sense feelings of emptiness or despair.

7 Stages of Grief...

5. THE UPWARD TURN-
As you start to adjust to life without your dear one, your life becomes a little calmer and more organized. Your physical symptoms lessen, and your "depression" begins to lift slightly.

6. RECONSTRUCTION & WORKING THROUGH-
As you become more functional, your mind starts working again, and you will find yourself seeking realistic solutions to problems posed by life without your loved one. You will start to work on practical and financial problems and reconstructing yourself and your life without him or her.

7. ACCEPTANCE & HOPE-
During this, the last of the seven stages in this grief model, you learn to accept and deal with the reality of your situation. Acceptance does not necessarily mean instant happiness. Given the pain and turmoil you have experienced, you can never return to the carefree, untroubled YOU that existed before this tragedy. But you will find a way forward.

7 stages of grief...

You will start to look forward and actually plan things for the future. Eventually, you will be able to think about your lost loved one without pain; sadness, yes, but the wrenching pain will be gone. You will once again anticipate some good times to come, and yes, even find joy again in the experience of living.

1,393 in 2007

Thats the number of teen drunk driving fatalities in 2007.

So you mourn for your one friend but there will likely be another 1,400 just like him this year alone.

CRS said...

Stacey and Nick Malegni, of Navarre, Florida know just how tough Mother’s Day can be. His mom, Ann Russo, and the couple’s 5-year-old son, Dominic, both died as the result of a November 7, 2004 drunk driving crash in Cherokee County, Georgia. That horror has made every Mother’s Day, and holiday, painful to celebrate.

An 18-year-old drunk driver’s car hit a median and flew airborne into the side of Ann’s car, instantly killing Dominic and causing her death three weeks later. Ann was flown by Care Flight to the hospital, underwent five surgeries and remained in a coma until the Malegnis withdrew her from life support just two days after Thanksgiving.

This is what your friends fun could have caused another family.

This is an accident, a tradgedy, not drunk driving:

Who was Parker Jackson?

On November 7, 2006 Lauren called me and told me our son Parker was 1 hour late to see his girlfriend. Neither of us could get him to answer his phone. Lauren sensed trouble and called 911 and asked if there were any car accidents in our area. The police confirmed a car accident on Providence Road right around the corner from here. I jumped in my car and began driving down Providence Road redialing Parker’s phone over and over with no answer and saying to myself, “Parker be safe be strong, be safe be strong.” I drove almost to the end of the road, and I started to be relieved and let out a deep breath … whew no accidents; we are ok. But as I came over the last hill at the end of the road, my heart started racing faster because all I could see was blue lights and red lights from all the police cars and fire trucks everywhere … it looked like a Hollywood disaster scene. A police officer ordered me to stay in my car. I got out anyway telling him, “That’s my son’s car!” I ran to the car which was crushed against a tree to get Parks but he was gone! “Where is my son … where is he?” I yelled. The officer than said the words that will ring in my head forever … “Sir, your son is dead.” The next thing I knew I was knocked to the ground by what felt like a lightning bolt driven through my heart. Our 16 year old son Parker was gone … He did nothing wrong. He was wearing his seat belt, going the proper speed and not talking on his phone … It was an accident … but for Parker the game of life was over.

Unfortunately Parker’s life is over. But, fortunately, your life is not. So the question is, “What are you going to do with your life?” Here’ what I think Parker would want you to do…it’s the same as the most valuable lesson his amazing life has taught me. And that is…

I am a student at milton and I have felt the shock and the sadness sweep throughout the school. I didnt know Adam personally but I have talked to him a couple of times and I have seen him everyday in the hallway. I dont condone his behavior and CRS I do understand where you are comming from however, I gather that you didnt know Adam and in no way are linked to him. If that is the case I dont think you, or anybody for that matter has the right to attack him and nor his family. Was he stupid, yes..should he have gotten in that car, no. These are simple questions with simple answers. He was irresponsible just as the others were. But sir, please stop attacking him and his decisions. I know of alot of people who are hurting right now and emotions are very high, your comments are not helping that. You posted the 7 stages of grief I believe, well let them do just that, grieve. He may or may not be an example it is all up to us to decide that. I know that I have stopped many friends from drinking and driving, and I dont do that myself. But please sir put yourself in his family;s shoes. I dont think that you can say that you have never made mistakes, we all have. I am very grateful that a bystander wasnt killed however, it is tagic that anyone died. PLEASE think about your approach, by attacking someone like that you arent actually preventing anyone from making the same mistake. I know your goal is for this not to happen again but right now that goal isnt being accomplished.

Learn to spell "invincible" and "miscreant".

Also, i find it rude and disrespectful to point out one individual for drunk driving. Why not just write a story about drunk driving and not about the victim?
It makes it worse that he just died. He has a little sister. She is still mourning. Imagine how she would feel if she read this. You are a despicable person.

Anonymous said...

You're saying you're glad that Adam died instead of someone else. Well if another person died, shouldn't they be at fault as well since they should've educated others about drunk driving? Either way, Adam made a mistake and people loved Adam. The world isn't as harsh of a place as you make it out to be. People deserve second chances. Imagine if every mistake led to someone dying. It would be an empty world.

I can't believe that you would even think of coming on the internet and saying something like this. I never met Adam, but I have seen him at a couple shows and around school. He may have made a bad choice, but you have to be the biggest douche bag I have ever seen to talk about his death like that. CRS maybe you should tell everyone your real name and trust me you wouldn't be able to hide behind your computer. You run a blog on Lauren Conrad......you are a tool. RIP Adam

Kids make mistakes - as parents we try to teach them right from wrong. I teach my kids ALL the time - don't drink and drive, don't get in a car with anyone (kid or not) who has been drinking and driving. I don't preach that drinking is wrong - they know as teenages that it is - but I let them know that when (not if) they find themselves out someplace where kids are drinking, or if they drink, to call me and I will come pick them up. There will be consequences, of course, but at the same time they know that the consequences will be better than me sitting at their funeral, or that of a friend, or visiting them in jail. I also use accidents like this to point out to them WHY you don't drink and drive and you don't drive with anyone that has. Unfortunately, many time, that isn't enough to keep them safe. I feel very bad for Adam's family and friends, this could easily have been anyone of us going through this.

I can't argue with the writer being gald that it wa one of these kids who made the choice to drink and drive rather than someone else who was on the road. The story of the FL couple illustrates their point of what could have happened. How happy you all would of been to see Adam live and a passenger in another car who was not drinking and driving die.

The best you can come up with to defend your friend is he made mistake evryone makes mistakes.

A mistake is forgetting to take out the trash, its not doing your homework, its lying that you didn't drink the rest of the oj, a mistake is not drinking and driving or getting in the car with a drunk driver. Your friends put lives in danger. I wonder how many of these friends writing here are really angry because over the last year they drank and drove or they got in a car with a drunk driver or they didn't speak up when one of their friends was doing these things. You lost a friend or an acquataince because you refused to speak out against bad behavior because it wasn't cool. And this writer has every right to speak out about drunks on public roads, roads they might be traveling.

So much anger towards the blogger but the blogger is not endangering anyone's lives, how selfish young people are today. They can not see outside of their small group of friends.

It was a stupid mistake by them

Who do you think you people are. You speak of being glad that Adam died, when you didn't even know him. A majority of the people here aren't angry over her saying that he made a stupid mistake, he did and we all know that and accept that. But in no way does he deserve death for it. I was a friend to Adam and he knew the dangers of drinking and driving, we all know that that wasn't going to stop him. I know that this was a consequence that he was forced to face, but under any circumstances did he deserve this. No matter what any of you say, this will still be a tragedy to me and his friends and family.

well if we are going to be rude like the person who posted this... I CANT WAIT UNTIL YOU LOSE SOMEONE DEAR TO YOU IN AN ACCIDENT. yeah they were drinking, but it's not like they were planning on crashing and planning on losing Adam. seriously? GROW UP and SHOW RESPECT. Adam, David, and Andrew are all great kids and I am so sad to have seen Adam go. we are SO blessed that David is recovering and Andrew is doing great as well. RIP Adam. Stay strong London boys!

Andrew said...

CRS,

You don't seem to be an adult. I have had the pleasure of being aquatinted with fifteen year olds that are more mature than you are. The loss of a life is always tragic and should be held in respect towards the deceased. According to your argument, you are no better than the men that protest outside of dead soldiers' funerals. Just to make an assumption, you must not have a job if you have time to be on this website all day. It seems that you are uneducated as you make a straw man argument that parents should be responsible for a 19 year old, who should be responsible for himself. It does not seem to make logical sense.

Anonymous said...

The blogger is "glad" someone else in another car was not killed. They are not dancing in the streets that your friend died.

If you read Matts comment the kid knew the consequences of drinking ad chose to do it anyway. What is sad is he put others at risk when he took to the streets with his friends having been drinking.

When I was in high school and lost a friend I too would have felt sad but when you see the same thing year after year you will be less sad and more mad that kids wasted their life for a drink.

Next time you think about having a drink think about what might happen.

Adam was my friend you dont say that its disrespectful keep your opinions to yourself tonight ill pray that you dont act like this ever again. Adam was a great guy i hope you find a better part in life. Live life to the fullest and never look back Adam ill always remember you and LC YOUR SCUM!

Anonymous said...

6:30 you want people to be repsectful since he died, how respectful was he to the community to drink and drive? You earn respect. Respect is not earned by drinking and driving. This is no way similar to protesting at soldiers funeral you fool, those men are heroes doing the job of protecting the country. These kids were drunk and good for someone saying it was wrong rather being politically correct and saying how sad it is. Neal Boortz by the way said the same thing so you may want to call his show.

Whoever this CRS person is needs to keep their opinions to themselves. Haven't you ever hear of mistakes? Everyone makes mistakes. Im sure you have before. Don't say anything about the family either. Again, it was a MISTAKE. Don't feel bad for them at all? Well maybe you should. Im sure if it was one of your friends or family members you would not be saying HALF the things you just said. Your comments are nothing but hateful, have a heart. Also, You think he deserved it? No one deserves what they went through. Drunk or not drunk, it's not fair. Again, it was a MISTAKE and im not saying their never going to do it again but im pretty sure they learned their lessons. It's life. Making mistakes is life.

Oh jesus, you are not sure they won't ever do it again? But your pretty sure they learned the lesson. That is almost comical. Someone is dead because of their run of the mill mistake. Where'e the party at this weekend in Milton? Let's all booze it up and drive around in their honor!

You dont feel bad for the suicidal cats, got to kill themselves 9 times befor they get it right! LEAVE YOUR DICK COMMENTS TO YOURSELF!

One thing that has not been discussed and this has been researched is teens can not properly evaluate risk, this is the reason many want the driving age raised. So the people who are highly critical of the actions need to understand this group likely could not properly evaluate the risk.

CRS said...

I am not partying down that your friend or acquantice died. I do remain glad that someone in another car was not hurt or killed by your friend's very selfish and reckless actions.

Your good times should not impede on anyone else. When you get behind the wheel, you have a responsibility to be sober and to pay attention to what you are doing while you are driving, this includes not speeding, not running stop lights, etc. You also have a responsibility even as a passenger to make sure people who have been drinking don't drive.

Rather than using your peer pressure to get people have sex and drink, you should use your peer pressure to pressure them not to do those things.

Many of you are headed to college soon, teachers will not care if you do your work and no one will babysit you to pick up your clothes or be in at a certain time.

You will have the freedom to make your choices, make good ones because more so than ever those choices will likely have lasting effects on your life.

As you get older you will find saying you made a mistake or saying you are sorry do not make up for the action.

Do you think the fact the driver is sorry consoles the family?

Anonymous said...

Speaking first hand from losing a loved one due to a drunk driver (in a very similar circumstance 20 years ago), this is an aweful tragedy that I wouldn't wish on anyone. Yes it was one that could have been avoided. I do agree that parents need to teach their kids that their actions have consequences. Unfortunately,kids (and even young adults) think nothing like this can happen to them. You will always have kids and adults that will still choose to make the decision to drink and drive and put their passengers and others on the road at risk - I wish this wasn't true but its a reality. The young 19 year old driver is going to have to live with the fact that his actions took the life of his friend. He will likely spend time in jail and I can only hope that he will use that time to reflect on his life and hopefully turn his life around and make some good come of this tragic situation.

Obviously you have never taken a psychology class - this is just another sad case of a teenager who's brain - yes, physical brain - was not fully developed. Adolescent's brains are not the same as a 25, 35, 45 year old person's. Their decisions concerning consequences are not the same as a fully grown adult. Just because the law says you're an adult at 18, does not mean you are capable of making the same rational decisions that a fully grown human being is capable of making. Google "personal fable" - it is a very real psychological situation where adolescent's do not recognize the gravity of their decisions. So to chastise a young man or his family for this, is very ignorant and wrong. Do you think your parents could have ACTUALLY stopped you from doing something you ACTUALLY wanted to do when you were a teenager? No. Is this their fault? No. Genetic & environmental factors led these young men to make the decisions they made. They were their own people. One can only hope it will teach others to make wiser decisions.

Kris said...

This should not even be up for discussion. Adam made some wrong choices that night. That cost him his life. But to say that it taught him a lesson? Death should never be a lesson. If you don't have anything nice to contribute to Adam Stephens life, don't post this blog. Your comments are out of line. He did not deserve to die.

Anonymous said...

Stop with the psych bs. Stop babying these young men. Parents that lay out lcear discipline for their children do prevent most of the teenage bs becasue they don't accept it. They don't throw their hands in the air and say I can't do anything and then go drink some wine.

To the whiner you can't take that his friend was an inconsiderate and selfish fuck for drinking and driving get over it. A lot of people despise what your friend did.

You want support go to facebook and sign his wall or go put some flowers by the road where your reckless friends layed bloody, broken and drunk a couple nights ago.

If your friends wanted to be well thought of they shouldn't have been boozin and drivin.

adam was a great guy.l he wouldnt do something unless he felt safe about it. i mean yeah this happened, but its not the end of the world. this is just causing more stress for everyone in this whole situation. i agree with most the peope that i have posted nice comments about adam. he was a great friend and a lovign son. we all went to church together and i know that his whole family was open about a lot of things. but i mean yeah they snuk out and they made that choice but just cause they snuck out dosent mean that they are bad people. they were being teenagers. the londons were great guys too. i have known them for so long and i would do anything for the whole family but to wish death on someone and to say that you are glad that they died in this horrible tragedy is retarded. i mean if you wanna be pussy about this and not say who ou really are then your so immature. my dad had this happen to him as well. he was drivin home drunk (which is really dumb) and his friend was passed out with out a seat belt and he lost control and he was ejected otu of the car and the car flipped ontop of him. i understand that you might say that this wasnt a "in the wrong place at the wrong time" deal but i believe it was. this shouldnt have happend and i understand they shouldnt have been doing what they were doing but thats what teenagers do. me and my mom are open about everything and there is nothing i would hide from her. she is my best friend. i have grown up sheltered and i got back with my mom and got on probation. i dont think that this was the right learning experience. i dont think that i life should have been takin from such a wonderful guy but i mean its a part of life. your born you live you die. but i really do miss adam and im very sad that things had to happen this way.

EXCUSE ME?! Who the hell do you think you are? You have to be some kind of satan worshiper to be glad that someone died, even under these kind of circumstances! I am Adam Stephens's ex girlfriend (im posting this comment through someone elses blog log in), and we dated for a year. Don't you sweat your tiny little brain and heart about people learning a lesson over this. Youre saying that Parents need to control their children but you also say to stop babying them because he was 19 years old (by the way you dumb b***h he was actually only 18, the news and everybody else got it wrong). Adam is the greatest guys I've ever met. He lived each day to its fullest and everyone that knew him can testify to that. If you had met him once, only once, he could change your life. People like you make me sick. I honestly don't think youve experienced a loss anything like this. I lossed what was the love of my life and you have the nerve to speak about him like hes just a F***ing fly. I hope you just remember to think before you open your mouth again. By the way, his family is at no fault for this...like you said, he was 19 (*cough 18 cough*), an adult, he makes his own damn decisions, even though they werent the greatest. I hope you have a wonderful life you heartless b***h.

Alex, take a deep breath and go smoke some pot with your mom and calm down. Your friends were drunks who didn't care about you or the community. People that care about their family and friends and community don't hop in a truck drunk and drive through town putting others at risk. Obviously you are not a good friend either as in all your time of friendship you never did anything about their underage drinking. So get lost with wanting people to feel sorry. Go put some flowers along the road to celebrate your drunk friends.

All these "Anonymous" heartless motherfuckers talking shit about Adam seriously need to shut the fuck up! You all make me sick. Adam was a great guy and did not deserve to die. As everyone has stated he did not even drink much less drive that night. He was the only one wearing a seat belt for crying out loud! How can he be held accountable for ANYTHING?
Stop posting bullshit and leave room for people that actually know him and care about him. And as Stephanie said, stop hiding behind your fucking monitors and display your real name if you've got the balls. Fuck you. This has been hard enough for everyone without your bullshit.

you dont need to talk about me either. thanks. you know kids drink. kids smoke pot. kids experiment. people make mistakes. you know adam wzasnt the one driving. adam obviously felt safe with andrew. thats why he got in the truck in the first place. and we arent celebrating anything. we are mourning the death of our friend. if you had to lose someone like this you would be doing the same thing... so shut the hell up already.

What difference does it make if he was 18 or 19? He was underage either way.

Your mom sounds like a typcial parental fool these days trying to be friends instead of a parent to a daughter that is obviously lost and not involved with people of good charachter and good morals. Adam and these two other fools put themselves exactly where they were supposed to be and it had NOTHING to do with wrong place and wrong time. They did not make one bad choice, they made a long list of bad decisions starting not on the night of their death but long ago when they took the first drink and long ago when they drove drunk for the first time. Neither drinking or driving drunk was a first for these kids the other night. So go sell your bs to others.

its one thing to talk about my friends but its another to talk about my family. you dont know my mom so shut the fuck up. thats none of your business i was just staing a point. how bout you get your head out of you ass and realize that this world is b=igger than you think it is. they were drinking not DRUNK. get the facts straight. if they were so drunk they wouldnt have drove. trust me. ill sit here and defend my friends all night cause i know that you are wrong cause you dont know them and until you leave this situation alone and stop talkin about how stupid they were in your eyes ill find you more and more ignorant in mine.

haley said...

look, you can have your opinions and others can have theirs, but there is a very, very fine line between opinionated people and ignorant, angry people. you crossed it miles ago. NO one should drink and drive, but they do. the only way you can change that is by setting examples, trying to help others do the right thing, and try and get the message through to kids, teens, adults, because it's not just teens getting in these drunk driving accidents. honestly, i've had close friends die in stupid drug overdoses and drunk driving, of course i was pissed as hell at them, but it doesn't change the fact that they were a person, they were somebodys baby, somebodys lover, somebodys friend. and your statements as to blaming the family.. hun i don't know what troubled past you come from, but lashing out like this is ridiculous and will not solve anything. It's the same as people who smoke cigarettes, we know they WILL kill you, but billions of people world wide light up those cancer sticks every single day. Why aren't you out there blaming their families? i know why. because everyone, when it comes down to it, will do what THEY want to do. whether they are influenced and convinced it's what they want, or if they want it from the beginning, people do what they want. Parents can try as much as they want, they can love as much as anything, but you cannot completly control your kids. EVERYONE makes mistakes, but some are worse than others. There are so many other incidents like this, that yes, you would think people would learn, but they don't. that's society though. if you can't come to the realization of the corruption in our society.. you've got bigger problems. drinking and driving is stupid and most of the time is fatal, but it's no where near the worst mistake someone could make. besides it was just that, A MISTAKE, they didn't go out planning to do that to themselves, it happend. but the pain is still there, the hurt for friends and family won't go away. Instead of tearing out these people's already broken hearts, why don't you do something positive, like supposrt the people who lost a loved one due to stupid mistakes and go out in the world and tell kids that you don't have to be some crazed teenager to do this. Adam was a good kid, but bad, stupid things happen to good people too. I think alot of teens get the false impression that only "bad", "party-animals" get in these situations. Why not take a stand against drinking and driving that will help people to recognize the severity and the danger, rather than get people so worked up about somehting that is already beyond painful. Healing a wound like this, is the only way you're going to get supporters in fighting drunk driving. Don't dig there hole deeper. there are no excuses for these kids mistakes, but try thinking about the most productive way of expressing your opinions, rather than attacking someone you have no right to and lashing out, unnecessarily, at his loved ones. you want people to listen and reason with you? it goes both ways hun. and i'm not trying to be your mother, but i really believe if you want anything good to come out of this, an over all apology would be an exceptional start to making a decent campaign agaisnt drinking and driving.

Alex, your friend will be charged dui, he is underage, that means .01 is all it takes. He was under the influence. He will do real jail time in a real prison. He will live in a mental prison as well for killing his so called friend. It is you who can not see the bigger picture, they could have easily HURT OR KILLED ANOTHER DRIVER! Think outside of your small bubble of drunkard friends who can not thing of a better activity than drinking and hopping in the truck. The driver is was making minimum wage. I think you might need to have your head examined.

Smoking is not the same, smoking kills the smoker, I can walk away from smoke, it is likely I will not be able to get out of the way of a drunk driver. Your argument is as stupid as your small brain that came up with it.

It's pretty sad that there is so much hate in this world that people make internet blogs just to be able to say how much they are glad someone's dead. It hits home when that someone happens to be a good friend. I agree with the post Amy left; if you wanted to write an article against drunk driving I'm sure everyone would have agreed with you, but to attack a personal case and his family and friends is uncalled for. He has two younger sisters that are probably still in shock from the events from a few days ago and you have the nerve to post things like this? He was an unbelievable MAN and he didn't deserve to die, especially the way he did. He was 18 years old, his parents don't have to baby him anymore. He can do what he wants and make his own decisions therefore justifying him being out at that time. Yes, he made a bad decision, but that's on him not on his friends and ESPECIALLY not on his family. I cannot believe you dragged Parker into this as well. You used another death to "justify" why the death of Adam and the near deaths of Andrew and David were not tragic. As I'm sure everyone else can agree with you sicken me, but it's people like you who need the prayers the most. Maybe God can show you that you were wrong for attacking an innocent group. You should have left it at your comments being just about drunk driving, but to bring a great person into it and to say you think he deserves to die is completely heartless. In Him, Shelby

Samantha Hughes said...

For such a hateful and opinionated person, you sure seem naive about the subject. No one deserves to die but no matter how much you hated them or what they did, they do not deserve to die or to be talked about by someone who is clearly incompitant when it comes to subjects like this one. A friend once told me "If I was the person I use to be, I'd find you and punch you in the face, but since I'm not that person anymore, I'm going to pray for you". And thats exactly what I am going to do, I am going to pray the God takes all your hate and removes Satan from you and your mind. RIP Adam Stephens, You death will not be in vain!

Amy said...

Ummmm "Coach" I do believe CRS is probably a good 5 states away, not in your school...and it's not bullying...it's expressing an opinion...Everyone knows how CRS feels about the situation and if you don't agree...well heres a novel idea...don't come to the site..plain and simple.

Amy said...

I also love how coach is cursing at children...Very professional...

CRS said...

Amy, I highly doubt that is a coach. Its some fool.

Amy makes a good point, if you disagree with me you disagree, I really could care less, don't come here, as others have said go put the flowers along the roadside and light a candle and the other cliches you no doubt need to do to "feel" better.

If one kid gets the message that drinking and driving is selfish and rephrehensible that's good enough for me.

As the stats show, Adam will be just 1 of 1,400 who die in underage accidents involving drinking. Most people will only remember his name as, oh, was that the kid who died drunk driving.

With graduations around the country starting this weekend, Adam's name will likely be replaced by others by Sunday night.

They will all have one common trait, selfishness.

CRS said...

Samantha, it is you who is naive, it is you who can not see that others could have been hurt and killed for their few drinks. A family left fatherless. Sleeping children in the backseat dead.

You are also naive to not consider the fire and rescue who had to respond to the accident to find your friend bloodied, broken and dead, teeth smashed, and to find two more ejected from the truck bloodied broken and reeking of alcohol, the horn still blaring in the background, the smell of hot rubber as they tried to stop the truck, the smell of blood, all the time trying to stay focused and save your remianing friends.

Thats the reality, it was not the scene from a movie, the actors didn't get up and wash off the make blood.

"No one deserves to die", how naive, your choices in life have serious repurcussions and poor choices do lead to death.

It wasn't one single bad choice that has left your "friend" dead, it was many, stretching back even before that night.

I would pray for your friends, drunk driving and selfishness are not tickets to heaven.

CRS said...

Really there is no more that needs to be said on this topic, some people get the point, some people don't.

Some people will use words like mistake, tradgedy, and accident to describe this situation.

Others will use careless, reckless, and selfish to describe it.

If you want to better the world with less drunk drivers, why not aim your pathetic blog towards the simple "DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE" slogan? You have no right to attack a certain family and their friends, it's wrong.

You are a hideous person.

I cannot believe that you can even live with yourself. This is the most disgusting thing I have read in my entire life.

I am not sure how it is possible for somebody to express such hate to another human being, especialy one that you DON'T EVEN KNOW.

Adam Stephens was extremely kind and passionate. He will be truly missed, as he brought joy to lives of so many people.

You know nothing about Adam. He was sneaking out of his house and made an awful decision.

This decision ended his life and continues to cause grief to all of those who knew Adam and his family and who knew what a charming person he was.

Why, then, do you think that you have any right to say such nasty things about him or his family? You never met Adam Stephens and you never met his parents or siblings.

You have no place to say anything about him. Why do you even care?

It seems to me that if you dislike someone so much, then you wouldn't waste so much energy criticizing them. You leave it the fuck alone and go mind your own damn business.

Here's an idea...
If your going to say such dumb fucking things, how about you come and say them in person instead of saying it on some anonymous fucking blog about The Hills.

Get a life you dumb dipshit.

Adam was a great kid, and his family is one of the nicest that you would ever meet. Adam made a bad decision, but you can't say shit about his family. They're certainly better people than you are.

They do not deserve this bullshit.

What if one of Adam's 3 younger sisters came across this crap? How would you feel? Like the disgusting piece of scum that you are? I hope you would.

You are truly the most ignorant, stupid, heartless piece of crap I have ever seen.

Maybe you have never experienced such a terrible loss like this. Or maybe, your just so fucking dumb that you don't realize how completely innappropriate your post is.

Seeing the Stephens family endure the loss of their oldest child and only son is extremely painful.

It's hard enough to deal with the tragic loss of a genuine, amazing young man without dumb fuckers like you giving your stupid, uninformed opinion.

I hope that Adam's parents or sisters never have to see your blog.

Stop hiding behind your dumb fucking computer and saying retarded shit like this.

Fuck off you stupid dipshit.

this is one of the most disgusting things i have ever read. i had only met Adam 2 or 3 times, but he was a nice guy and he has a lot of people that love & care about him, and will truly miss him. His funeral was today! he hasn't even been gone for a week and you have the nerve to sit and talk shit about him! You are disgusting! Have a little fucking respect for his friends and family! Yeah he did make a wrong decision that did end up costing his life, but thats what fucking teenagers do! i have never met a teenager who is absolutely perfect and never made a dumb decision! I don't know anybody who has never snuck out of their house, i barely know anyone who has never gotten drunk! Thats what teenagers fucking do! And i would like to point out that out of the three boys Adam was the only one wearing a seatbelt! So he was responsible to a certain point. Now stop hiding behind your fucking keyboard and get a fucking life! it's so sad that you have to sit here and talk shit about people you don't know, im sure your a very lonely and miserable person and from what i've read that you have said you deserve to be.
FUCK YOU!

CRS its amazing how you have to hide behind a monitor to speak your mind. your wasting your fucking time and your being the most disrespectful piece of shit ever. They made a mistake, no shit, everyone makes a mistake, but saying that your glad that someone died? Yeah, drinking and driving is bad, but singling out adam and his family is just disrespectful. You try to "spread the word" by fucking blogging, well wow your doing a pretty shitty job if you ask me. No matter how much you talk shit about adam and his family, drinking and driving wont stop. its gonna happen whether we all like it or not. oh and by the way, don't single out teenagers with drinking and driving cause you know damn well adults do it too. adam is an amazing man. one day your friend is gonna make the same mistake and it might cost them their life.. we'll see how much you love your little blog then.

How sad that the teenage friends try to justify his actions. I can see missing your friend but justifying what they did is stupid and why many people dismiss altogether what teenagers have to say.

Anonymous said...

^ to Anonymous above me...

we're not justifying Adam's actions, you stupid faggot.
he made a bad decision, but we are
saying that he was great person, and nobody, especially Adam or his family, deserves to go through something like this.

What IS stupid, however, is the way that YOU are justifying what CRS is saying.
If you think that we are stupid, then how about you just go fuck off.
At least we have hearts.

This is stupid. On both sides. Adam (although to a lesser extent than Mr. London) made some incredibly stupid decisions that night. This is just a fact, there is no way around that. That doesn't mean there was anything wrong with him as a person. I didn't know him very well, but he seemed like a nice, funny guy. But what he did on that night was so stupid, I am incredibly glad that nobody innocent was hurt. But to be glad that the kid is dead? Everyone deserves a chance to experience life, and to die at such a young age, regardless of the circumstances, is tragic. But you have the think about everyone involved in this. The Stephens family will never be the same. Think about cousins, grandparents, family friends, teachers, classmates who are now without an important person in their lives.

Nobody deserves to have this happen to them? Well that just can't be true, that would mean a world where horrible choices go unpunished. It had to happen, and it is sad but the choices they made on that night are directly responsible for their deaths, rather than an innocent person who has done nothing wrong being hit by a drunk driver.

It happens, it is tragic, but it was not a guileless death.

You dumb teens, no one outside of your tiny group cares that your underage drinking and driving friends are dead, injured and going to jail. It makes you mad because you assumed and incorrectly that when you die everyone is just instantly sad because your dead. Their not. Your friends were stupid and their actions, not CRS, is why they are dead.

Meredith said...

Wow, as someone said before I hate to even add fuel to this fire, but I am so throughly disgusted with the things that I have read. First off, all of you mature, experienced, "adults" commenting against the death of Adam have absolutely no class. YOU are an embarrassment, and I am ashamed to live in the same society as you. I guarantee you that all of the citizens of Milton, Alpharetta, and anyone else reading this are FAR more disgusted and appalled by your comments then they are of the mistakes of Adam, Andrew, and David. That night, bad choices were made and we are all FULLY aware of that, but thanks for reminding us CRS. What would we do without your wisdom? I think you all have forgotten that you were all teenagers once too. Just because you are an adult does not give you the authority to look down upon teenagers and assume every choice we make is wrong. What are you inferring? Were you a teenager who made stupid choices? Are you reflecting on the decisions you made as a teenager? Also, assuming that drinking and driving is the "regular" around Milton is ludicrous. Yes, we have students that do drink, like every other high school in America. However we do look out for each other, none of us would let one another drink and drive if we had the chance to stop them. Nobody had the chance to stop them that night, so never for one second should you be putting the blame of this on Adam's other friends. There is not even one slight doubt in my mind that if ANY of us had the chance to stop them that night we would have. Also, how many years has it been since there has been a student at Milton who has died from drinking and driving...? Many. Regarding Adam's family, how dare you even bring them into this. If you are not going to have sympathy for Adam then fine, your loss for not having respect for such a wonderful human being. But his FAMILY? They are suffering the death of their 18 year old son, who would have graduated next week. In NO way can you turn this around on them. I pray that you would ever even be capable of having a relationship with your child that Adam did with his parents. Although I am almost positive you have no children, for regardless of the circumstance ANY parent would be able to feel for any other parent who has just lost their child. My main question for you is who do you think you are? Who do you think you are to be glad a child died? Who do you think you are to partially blame Adam's parents and friends for this? Who do you think you are to think you know anything about the kind of person Adam was? Who do you think you are to even comment on such a sensitive subject in the first place?! You are ignorant to think that you can place a post as disrespectful as this and not expect people to respond negatively. As everyone has said before, you feel so powerful behind your computer screen. That is your life, you criticize other people to make yourself feel better. How stupid do you feel, that a family member of someone who was killed previously by a drunk driver defended Adam against your vulgar comments. It doesn't get any more up close and personal then that. That person has an actual legit REASON to hate drunk drivers because of the loss of their family member, YET they are defending Adam. WEIRD?! That should of completely 100% shut you up, but no, you must know even better then someone who has lost a family member to drunk driving, right? The death of a child will and always will be a tragedy, regardless of the circumstance. Drunk drivers will always be on the roads, regardless of your little posts "speaking against" drunk driving. How about you get up away from the computer screen and do something to help the cause of drunk driving if you are this passionate about it. Make a donation to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, do SOMETHING besides bash CHILDREN that made bad decisions. Deep down I am honestly sorry for you, this is your life, you bash other people that you do not agree with. Ever thought of keeping your comments to yourself? Ever thought or had the consideration that you are posting on a public blog that Adam's FRIENDS and FAMILY can read while his death is still so new. Have some empathy. And also, how dare you bring Parker into this. You have crossed the line long ago. You should have left this topic at the bad things that can come out of drunk driving, which we are all aware of. Or kept your mouth closed and never even brought it up! We know mistakes were made, and those were mistakes that can never be taken back. But that is exactly what they are, MISTAKES. They never intended to crash, and they absolutely never intended for Adam to die. Just because they made mistakes does not mean they were not good people. Andrew, David, and Adam are amazing young men and shame on you for doubting that. And for your absolutely gruesome comments about the accident, you are out of your mind. I am legitimately concerned about you. These boys might have made a huge mistake, but you have some VERY large life lessons that still need learning. More life lessons are ahead of you then most teenagers I know. Problems that you have probably had your whole life. You will get no where in life criticizing other people. What do you think you have accomplished by posting this? Do you think you have taught anyone a lesson? Do you feel better after all of your disgusting posts? You have accomplished nothing. You say you are trying to help "spread the word" against drunk driving. Well, I am a teenager and I can tell you that you have helped absolutely nothing. We all learned the lesson of what the consequences of drunk driving can be when the accident occurred, YOU have done nothing. So once again, don't you feel stupid knowing that you have inflicted even more hurt on Adam's friends with your posts and in the process not even accomplished anything?! Shame on you for ever being so disrespectful. I have one last thing to say to you "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." John 8:7

RIP adam :] said...

1.) I can't believe i followed this entire blog.
2.) CRS... You are nothing but a heartless person. Not only have you refused to tell anybody how old you really are, but you won't tell anybody what your name is either.
3.) Adam has a family that does care about him. He has friends that DO care about him. He has people around him that DO care. So just because you're an ignorant bitch who chooses to be a cunt, don't say that people don't care about what happened because they do!

I wasn't great friends with Adam, in fact, I only said hey to him once when I was hanging out with some of his friends and he happened to be there. I go to Milton, and let me tell you, kids are so torn up about this TRAGEDY. It's really unfortunate and I give my heart out to his family and friends who are mourning over their loss. I'm truly sorry.
CRS, you say that they were being selfish. The only person I consider selfish right now is you. You don't care how many people you are hurting by writing this blog. So I would think before you speak and call somebody else selfish. All you care about are your feelings on the matter. It was not his or his friends intention to be in an accident that night. It was not on purpose. Shit simply happens and he did NOT deserve to die. For you to even think that is the most hateful thing that I can't even believe that anybody could really be this rude.
Nobody deserves to die. I don't know what religion you are or anything, but for some people, a sin is a sin no matter how bad. They are all considered equally just a sin. Have you never made a mistake in your life? Because if you have then according to you, you deserve to die. People make mistakes and its human! Your acting like your totally perfect and that you would never do anything wrong. Don't try to tell me you have never broken the rules or done something you weren't supposed to do. Everybody does it at some point in their life and his ended badly. That still does not make it right for you to be glad about his death for ANY REASON.

Of course were all happy that nobody else was involved in the accident, but for the ones that did, it is beyond unfortunate. It IS a tragedy.

You say that if it was a brother you would feel the same exact way. Ha, I completely doubt you would. And if you did, I feel sorry for your family. They obviously didn't raise their kid right to believe that it's a good thing that somebody died in an accident. No matter what the cause of the incident was. People unconditionally loved Adam, that's why we are all upset about the accident. Were not glad about anything and if you even knew how to unconditionally love anybody you would feel the same. But you honestly don't sound like you have feelings. Sucks for you.

Just do everybody a favor, and quit selfishly making everybody feel even worse about a horrible situation. If you have such crazy ideas that your even possibly correct in this arguement, then do everybody else a favor and use your selfishness to keep it to yourself. I don't like seeing my friends upset about anything, and I know a lot of people that were great friends with him and are very upset about this. I didn't know Adam very well, but he was a great person. He made mistakes just like everybody else. This one should never have ended with his life taken away and for you to be glad just still blows my mind.

Your heartless and really selfish. You care about your thoughts only and thats ridiculous. I know a lot of people that have quit drinking and smoking because of it all, so yes, it did teach a lot of people lessons, but this should not have been our wake up call.

And lastly, he was a great person. And if you didn't know him, then you have no right to say he wasn't. He made a bad choice, but that doesn't mean he was a bad person.

So basically just shut the fuck up because no body wants to hear it.

k thanks :]

RIP adam :]
you'll be loved and missed always and forever :]

Actually its refreshing to read this perspective, the perspective that the kids were selfish fools intent only on their own good time regardless of who they hurt or killed in the process. It actually required more thought than the teens on here with "shit happens man". "Like some of us quit drinkin and smokin for like the weekend because this happened" - you all sound really eloquent and like a great group of kids - NOT!

Funny how you all spend sop much time on a blog you disagree with, taking the time to comment actually gives it credence.

Your time could be better spent cooking the family dinner, cutting their grass, washing their cars, planting a tree to remember your friend, you miss your friend, go do something then!

Meredith said...

For the two anonymous (what a coincidence) posts above me, you two are both more selfish then any teenager on this blog. You KNOW that Adam's friends and possibly even his family members (I pray to god they aren't) are on here reading every word you say, yet all you care about is bashing the mistakes these boys made AND the boys themselves. Almost every post on here by one of Adam's friends has said "Yes, I know they made a mistake, they made a dumb decision that night." We are at least agreeing with you on that point, because we are not IGNORANT. You, as I said before, mature, experienced, "adults" will only see your side of the things. So teenagers, not to mention friends of Adam, are more open minded with this subject and willing to see both sides of things then you are. WEIRD?! You all sound like a really "eloquent, great group of adults" bashing a boy who just tragically passed away and bashing his friends who are just trying to stick up for him against your brutal words. Once again, you are ignorant for expecting to just write whatever you feel about the death of a young person and not receive negative feedback in return. You say that we are spending too much time on a blog we disagree with, I'm sorry that Adam's friends aren't just going to sit around and watch you say whatever you want. At least these are ADAM'S FRIENDS spending time on the blog, Who are you? You're obviously reading and keeping up with the blog as well to be so informed on this topic, and you have NO connection what so ever to this accident! You're criticizing Adam's loved ones for sticking up for him, yet you are someone who is in no way involved and you are spending time on here. So I would suggest YOU get off this blog, considering you serve no purpose here except to cause people more grief and frustration then they are already going through. Just remember that we are sticking up for our friend and what we feel is right, the rest of you are just bashing a cause that has NOTHING to do with you. That is what you do, if you do not agree with someone you have to let everyone know it, when it is NOT your place. If you go beyond saying these boys have made a huge mistake, you have crossed the line. I feel so fortunate that even though there are people like yourselves in this world who will only think of themselves and always be cruel, unhappy people, you are very much so out numbered. You all should be embarrassed and ashamed of yourselves, and I hope you know how many people of ALL ages are looking down on your comments.

To the creator of this blog,
Many of the facts you've had posted about Adam Stephens and the other boys involved in this crash are false. I would advise that you put more effort into researching future subjects you post to avoid looking so completely uneducated and ignorant.

Anonymous said...

whats false? tell us all. Looks like the basis of the article comes straight from ajc.com

Rachel :] said...

Meredith is COMPLETELY right. I wrote the one that said RIP Adam, but now I'm just going to go by my name.

I can't believe adults are the ones that are being so completely immature, ignorant, and selfish. We see that they have nothing better to do with their time than to write their hateful comments on a blog because they have nothing better to do with their "educated" lives, because they think they're experts on the topic and all. Of course teens are going to be sticking up for their friend, we get on the computer a lot. Get over it :]

And yupppp we will defend Adam till the end. Sorry :]

Mike Cummings said...

You said in a comment - "I think you need to learn what a "great person" is....it is not someone who gets in a car with people who have been drinking, speeds and puts others in danger."

^Wow. Just, wow. So, if somebody makes a bad choice, they're a bad person?
There isn't a person who knew Adam that would say he was anything less than great. Why is that? Because he made EVERYBODY laugh and smile. No matter how bad their day was going.
Was Adam picking on other people? Never.
Was he disrespectful? Not a bit.
Oh, and he was a faithful Christian.
Now, you're going to tell me he's a bad person because of one bad choice?

Are you trying to claim that YOU have never made a poor decision or a mistake? I highly doubt you haven't.

Get off your high horse, CRS. Nobody is perfect. Saying you're glad someone is dead just disgusts me. You're pathetic. No wonder all you do is blog and talk crap, I can't imagine who in their right mind would be friends with you.
