I agree with you dude, Ive been to Maple Grove Raceway in PA many times and I too think its stupid they have the seats all the way off to the side what gives?!?!? personaly I think they should provide each of us with self propulsion jet suits so we can float just above the cars as they pass by giving us that eagle eye view...just watch your jerry curl if you get too close to my flames baby!!

If you want to see the race, wouldn't the best place to be on the side of the road at the finish line? Not in the middle of the road behind them!

I believe there is a whole lot more to this story than being told. Rumor has it that there was NO smoke at the time the driver blew through the crowd. And, take this racing to the track! no on the street. This boys just need to grow up! Why are the police allowing the meets in the parking lots? What the heck is our policemen and policewomen doing out there?? Serve and protect? Not.
Thank you for showing your overall ignorance. You just demonstrated that you know nothing about police work or the men and women who are out there protecting you. Ever tried to do your job with the people you are trying to help treating you with hatred and disrespect? Somehow I doubt it. This incident wasn't caused by the police, it was caused by criminals and criminal facilitation. That's right, I know what these words mean and use them frequently in my job. Can you say the same? Doubtful. Lay off my colleagues and try keeping your mouth shut about topics you know nothing about.

There not victums, there suspects who should be charged and put in jail. They were driving without their headlights on, now use some common sense here. You can tell by there typr of ex-police car he was driving that he proball bought at an auction, he too is ghetto scum ! The real victim is the truck driver and the child who's mother was stupid enough to take him out there to watch an illegal race at 3:30 in the morning. Common sense is needed here, but they don't have any.

The street race have been going on for years in tha area and I am in my late forties. The authorities should had put a stop to this so many years ago and now several people are dead. Grown people out there racing their cars. One person stated that street racing always had an order to it. That is not possible a person must be distance away from the cars.
This is not the time to hide from the truth people are dead and families are hurt.


And just how pray tell would you propose stopping these illegal races? Hey, I've got it, how about the police give chase since we all know that the drivers will stop...No problem, right? Better yet, let’s set up roadblocks, stop everyone coming and going. Oh no, I forget that would be a violation of your civil rights, not to mention a total waste of manpower.

Just what we need another police chase with casualties, I don't think so. Seems everyone’s an authority on how an officer should perform his or her job and when they do, it’s still not right. When was the last time you had someone tell you they paid your salary, had friends in high place and they’re going to have your job?

Just as soon as you come up with an honest too goodness, workable solution to this problem, I'm sure the Chief would love to hear about it! In the meantime, stop being a backseat driver (no pun intended)…

I am truly sorry for the pain these families are going through. Yet it is truly amazing that the witnesses will not help the cops with the investigation.

First off its not just young boys in Hondas. Actually it was a dometic race with older individuals over 30, who enjoyed doing what they have been for over 25 years. Yes this was a terrible accident, but this event included people of all ages,races,incomes, etc. Street racing may be illegal but it has been going on since cars were made and will never end. Best thing I can say is authorities should sponser a place like I've heard of in Cali where you can race legally, without the use of Budds or Crapital.

How can the driver be a victim? Would this have happened if people weren't out there street racing? No. Then again, Would this have happened if the driver of the crown vic wasn't driving ILLEGALLY on a suspended license for the last year? NO! He's not so innocent. I find it funny how his uncle says he's a good kid who doesn't get into trouble but he must've done something to have his license suspended and was driving around anyways, regardless of the law that told him don't.

How does it make him feel knowing he killed 8 people and injured many others when he should've never been driving in the first place? Victim my ass...

People are turning everything into a racial issue and it shouldn't be that way.
Let me introduce myself: My name is Dr. Whitey and I study human behavior and developement. For the last 15 years I have traveled Africa and studied the African negro and the way he acts.
My main study was to compare the intelligence of the negro to the gorilla since they are closely related. What I found out is interesting. It is well known that the negro brain is about half the size of the white man's brain. What was shocking is I found out the gorilla's brain is only slightly smaller than the negro brain.
In most intelligence test the gorilla did just as well as the negro. On behavior I was shocked by the difference between these two species. The female gorilla will wait until adulthood before she produces babies. The negro female is totally opposite. 89 % of female negros (and this includes Africa and America) become pregnant by the age of 15.
Another study was done on the male gorilla. The male gorilla will stay and provide for his offspring until they become adults. 95 % of male negros (African and American) will not have anything to do with their children once they are born.
People wanted to challenge me on the subject of the negro being a close relative of the gorilla. I took the example of Patrick Ewing (former Knick player). I had Ewing stand next to a gorilla and I asked numerous people who was the negro and who was the gorilla. Most couldn't tell. The only way they could tell the difference was when I asked Ewing to speak. Even after speaking it was still hard to come to a decision. One other thing about Ewing. There was talk of doing a remake of the Planet of the Apes and he was going to have the lead role. The producers figured they would save some money since Ewing wouldn't have needed a costume.
There is a difference between the American negro and the African negro. The American negro is usually smarter than his African counterpart. This is due to the American negro being around the white man for so long. Some of the white man's intelligence has rubbed off on the negro.
In closing I would like to say I hope I didn't offend anyone with this scientific proof. We all should look to get along and quit fighting with each other. It works for me because I have a great deal of respect for the negro.
Yours Truely,
Dr. Iam Whitey
Has this research been peer reviewed and if so where? I would like to ask you then from what university did you matriculate? I am a African American who attends Bowie State with a GPA of 3.6 and would like to personally review your findings, if possible

I first went to Grambling St. University and received my degree. I presented my degree from Grambling but no one would accept it because it came from a community college.
So... basically your degree is worth about as much as an Independence card.

OK; so all we've been seeing on the TV news since this happened is outraged family and friends saying that they want the police to get to the bottom of this and see that justice is done. But no one wants to talk to the police about what they're saying is "the truth"? Interesting. Guess their family and friends who were killed/injured aren't that important after all. If it were me, I'd want the "truth" to be known, even if it meant my going to jail for years. But that's just me...
Thanks
