The story that aired over the weekend about the family that killed themselves in a car accident in the middle of town? Well, I’m not gonna lie, I was a little bit surprised. We don’t typically talk about suicide or car accidents on our news, but what was shocking was that the accident was the result of a drunk driver.
They were only the second family in the last decade to kill themselves in a car accident. And most of them were related to the victim. The other family had a family member who was a professional driver, so it was a bit odd.
Yeah, the second family was related to the victim. One of the reasons the news media is generally so interested in the tragic lives of the family members who commit suicide is that the families are often treated like celebrities. Even though they have nothing to do with the suicide, the news media is still excited about their lives and how tragic they supposedly were.
It’s no wonder the news media feels so protective of these families. Most of their lives were tragic. They were all probably in a great deal of pain. And they all had something to do with the death. The second family, aside from the driver, were all related to the victim, so they almost had to be. And the victim, the driver, and the family members were all related to the driver, so they almost had to be.
Well, not so fast. This is the same news media that was so protective of the driver’s father two years ago, but not so protective of the driver now. But if the driver’s family is in pain, then we should go out of our way to protect them. And that’s really what the news media has done for the past few days. They have been supportive with the families of the victims, but not so much with the families of the drivers.
The drivers family is in pain. That’s obvious. It’s not like these were some random accidents. The driver was a member of a small, well-known gang who had run a heroin-fueled game on a very large scale. And with a few well-known members of the gang dead and a larger one seemingly at large, the odds of the driver being able to find some sort of justice are low.
The last thing the driver family wants to do is sit around and wait for the state to take care of every little thing. Instead, they are taking matters into their own hands, going to the police after the blood of their loved ones. In a way, they are saving themselves. I think I even found myself feeling a bit of sympathy for the parents of the victims. They don’t seem to be much like the drivers family.
This is really a family issue. I guess it’s a good thing that there are people out there who care enough to take matters into their own hands when the police can’t or won’t do anything about it. When I was growing up, most of my best friends died in accidents and the police never seemed to care, even though there were several of their friends in police and court records I was able to access.
While some states have their own rules for how the media can be used, the rules of privacy vary from state to state. Some people say that it is okay for police to use information about crimes to help solve crimes, but in the United States we have a lot of laws that keep the police from doing that, as well.
In the end, the police do not need to be concerned about the media. All they need to do is get a warrant and a detective to investigate the crime, and they can use this information for anything they want. They may not use it to solve the real crime, but they can use it to draw attention to the real crime. The media, on the other hand, is another matter.
