    Yesterday a local group of girl scouts decided to serve the community by picking up trash alongside the road. A young man who was obviously drunk or high on drugs swerved into the ditch hitting the girls and taking off. Killing 3 young girls and one adult. A very good friend of mine lost his oldest daughter. The police later located the driver 21 year old Colten Treu who already had an extensive record. The police better be protecting Colten because I’m sure a lot of people have a bullet with his name on it.

    The school district and law inforcement are going to have a conference at 4:15 today. I suspect a lot more information will be released after that.

    Just a news conference with the school district. I didn’t learn anything I didn’t already know. The lake Hallie police department is going to release more information tomorrow morning.

    He’s facing 4 counts of homocide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. To me it looks like he intentionally did it.

    Similar thing happened near me a few weeks ago. A troop of Boy Scouts and their leaders were hiking a trail which partially runs along a roadway. A drunk driver plowed into them, killing a 12 year old Andrew McMorris and injuring 4 other scouts. It was just before 2 pm. This really hit home with my son. He's the same age.

    The driver admitted having been drinking and had a BAC of 0.18. He's being charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, assault, vehicular assault, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and reckless endangerment.

    Seems like a possible difference from the girl scout tragedy is that the shitbag that killed the scout near me has publicly admitted fault.

    WEAU.com has the most information on the story. My nephew said he knows the guy and said he’s a big meth head. Also on Facebook he said he was going to take some people out and he wasn’t going to feel bad about it.

    Sickening. He’s a murderer as far as I’m concerned.
