I believe you have severely missed the point of the "compassion" comment. And you apparently lack some yourself. There is NOT evidence at this point that drugs had anything to do with what you have already concluded was a " drug-induced joyride." You point fingers and jump to conclusions like many who have commented already. Yes, there was a pattern of wreckless behavior and risk taking. But to think that Louis ever intended to hurt another? That is a conclusion that you truly are leaping to. Truth be known, no one knows at this point if this crash could have been prevented. And while he and his passengers may have made some unwise choices along the way, no one can say that Louis, nor his passengers, deserved what happened to them. May you never have a child or loved one in what could have been, as far as you know, an accident, have things so malicious and slandering written about them. And as far as judging Louis' character goes, you and everyone else seems bound and determined to draw your conclusions from his "rap sheet" alone. A rap sheet is part of the story. You are, however, unfairly leaving out the rest of his life. You have no right to draw conclusions based on his "fruit" unless you know more about him. And you don't! You don't (didn't) know Louis, much as I don't know you. While I'd like to say that I hope your daughter has better role models than you, I can't say that. I don't know you. I'd like to judge you after reading your "my daughter is better than..." explanation, but I can't. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you are a concerned father who is grateful that his daughter was not in a similar accident. But I would love to look you in the eye and tell you that YOU ARE IN THE WRONG to judge Louis as you have.
This is the heart of the matter: Louis was a best friend. Louis was a brother. Louis was a son. Louis was a neighbor. Louis was a cousin. Louis was a nephew. Louis was a lot of things - He was and always will be more than his “rap sheet” regardless of what they say.
