I know to all of you this mother seems as if she deserves the worst. It was one bad choice that runied this womans life forever. I wish all of you knew Mrs. Ciarcia . She is actualy m aunt who Iv'e obviously known all my life. She loves children and a tradgedy like this is bad enough for her. You all need to realize that just because a person makes one bad judgment does not make them a criminal. All im saying is dont down size a person and make assumptions on person who made one bad choice her entire life.

On CBS 6pm news tonight they showed a picture of Mrs. Ciarcia and her family wearing CBGB's shirts in Washington Square park, could you please tell me where this is posted on the web, it's such a lovely picture of a happy family? Thanks.

you ever think about the kids??? It is indeed the mothers fault but why should the kids have to suffer?? The family is trying to do all they can for the children. Those children will never be able to be in their own neigborhood without being harassed. People make stupid choices and drive under the influence everyday. I can guarantee that you alone know people who drive under the influence, they just were lucky to never have an accident. Im not sticking up for Mrs. Ciarcia im just saying she isn't a bad person nor is she a bad parent. All of those kids love her because she was a cool parent trying to be both a parent and a friend. Take a look around it is 2007 so many girls run away , get pregnant, even start wth drugs because they don't have a loving or caring family. This is a tragic accident that could have happened to anyone.

Ok and obviously all the parents that were there knew that their kids were there. Cornish got t the club on her own so I woul like to belief her mom knew where she was. There is more to this story than everyone gets with the media. All you see is a woman driving drunk and killing a kid. Im sorry but I see people every night driving drunk and that could be your son, daughter, mother, father, aunt , uncle, or even best friend. They just beat the system. I do believe drunk drivers are stupid but not criminals. It is a mistake. Unfortunately this one took someones life and effected 3 lovley families.

I AM NOT GOING TO BE AS VERBAL ABOUT THIS ISSUE AS I SHOULD BUT, DRINKING AND DRIVING IS STUPID AND A CRIME. THEREFORE SHE IS A STUPID CRIMINAL WHO JUST HAPPENED TO GET CAUGHT! OH, BY THE WAY, THIS MAY JUST SEEM SECONDARY TO OTHERS OUT THERE BUT....... SHE INJURED SOMEBODY AND KILLED SOMEBODY ELSE!!!!!
THIS IS NOT A TRIVIAL MATTER THAT SOME WRITTERS SEEM TO PORTRAY IT TO BE. THIS IS A SERIOUS CRIME AND SHE SHOULD BE PUNISHED AS A MURDERER! NOT JUST SLAPPED ON THE WRIST BECAUSE SHE SAID SHE IS SORRY, HAS A FAMILY OF HER OWN AND CRIED IN COURT.
