Woman Drunk Driver Victim? – Yeah Right
The media likes to call the woman a victim even when the facts are obvious.
She was caught drunk driving, let off with just her keys taken, went out of her way to drive drunk again, killed herself and injured some mates in the process.
The only victims here are her family, friends and police, fire crew and ambulance staff who had to clean the mess up. Those memories will haunt them forever.
The other people in the car are not victims either. They knew she was drunk, they knew the cops had taken the keys, they knew she had a learners licence and yet they made a choice allow her to drive and they choose to get in the car with her.
Harsh as it sounds the reckless and out of control behaviour of this woman lead to her own death.
Call it like it is Tessa Johnstone – The meaning of a victim is here http://www.thefreedictionary.com/victim that is “One who is killed by another”. Not one who behaves as Ayla Boyd and her mates did.
My sympathies to the family remain.
