    Mr. Goldstein no reason to act like a racist here. It doesnt matter what the persons race or creed it.

    I have many bad Jewish and Oriental drivers as well.

    Do us a favor and be quiet

    I doubt she was a ‘Spaniard’. Spaniards are from Europe and White! Most likely, she was a Aztec Hybrid or Sub Saharan African mix with a Spanish name.

    So when are we going to finally be allowed to execute these drunkards???? Oh wait, all politicians are drunken slime balls. They will never pass a tough anti-drunk law.

    truth is that i have started noticing myself more and more young people- my neighborhood also- drunk, druged, whatever
    it is really sad that this behavior can affect other , normal people, including losing their lives
    i strongly remain to my opinion that these are the results over the years of the exaggerated so-called “child protective laws”
    these youngsters, now 18,19,20,25, sort of grew up without solid rules, no one , parent or teacher were able to re-enforce strong educational standards, out of fear to be considered a child-abuser, or something
    sorry, but this is the fruit to reap, drunks, noisy, uneducated
