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.
Boy Racers get jail for death of girl.
In this case a girl, a passenger, died in an accident.
The Police have this to say;
I am wondering if there is any Police investigation into the actions of the other passengers of this car. Is it just their bad luck that they were in the car after she was forbidden to drive?
Fleeing driver killed in Whanganui named.
I think the headline ‘Drunk Driver victim’ is trying to blame the Police – victim of a Police chase.
It makes me wonder though if she had not been done for drink driving earlier in the night would she have taken off the second time.
Should we be blaming the Police for this or looking at the other Six passengers in the car.
Personally, I think this one is just AWESOME!
So, if you’re a woman and a maori and a sportsperson, and you just broke up with your boyfriend – the law doesn’t apply! Sweeet! Before long we’ll be able to successfully argue that the law doesn’t apply to anyone – we all have a gender and can’t be discriminated against, we all have a race and can’t be discriminated against, and we all have relationship difficulties at some point in our lives. It’s fantastic news!
As for the young woman who drove drunk and killed herself, yes her friends (including the 800 odd Facebook ‘friends’ she asked to be her sober driver) should all take some measure of responsibility.
Don’t forget she attempted to evade police seemingly deliberately heading into a labrynth of streets where she would be difficult to be found. Google maps the Swiss Ave/Gonville Ave area!
