Since 6:18 a.m. March 18, 2013 (please see below), the Post-Journal has removed the "ignorant and stunning" "posted" "comments" "criticizing Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Hutton."

The Post-Journal would do itself and its readers a service if it took such action frequently.

My God; the insensitivty shown to the pain EVERYONE feels when someone is a victim of a PREVENTABLE DUI crash. Friends kill friends; strangers kill is ALL pain. I know from experience - my niece was killed and I speak at a forum in Warren (PA) County where her mother lives. Someone is trying to make a difference - the speakers, the Sheriff, those dedicated to organizing the panels. As I see it minuteman, duckster, rodrickson, khulumzurug and the others morons who are sure to post are NOT trying to make a difference in society. She said ~ we are not advocating "do not drink, we are asking you not to drink and drive." Simple. The forum where I speak has many "stories" - one IS a friend killing a friend, one stranger kills stranger (mine) and one is a victim who lived and lives in constant pain. The victims list goes on and on. My blood boils at your comments. Who knows if this was the FIRST time this person drove drunk or the 100th - HE/S

The comments posted below criticizing panel members such as Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Hutton are even more ignorant and stunning than posted comments on Post-Journal articles and opinion pieces usually are.

And that's pretty bad.

Do such comments not even begin to embarrass the commenters?

No, of course not, because they're anonymous.

So the one DUI victim was drunk and jumped in the back of truck that was being driven by his friend who was equally drunk?

Excuse me while I light a candle...

The Bible says to berry your Dead and remember them as who they were,grieve for them for a while and get on with your life this panel is santanic, The guy on the panel is twenty some years doing this they don't say how much money they take after one of these classes ,but you have to pay with a money order to attend a meating it's just a way for the County and Little Hilter to make you feel as low as you can go these people are the ones that need help not the people in attendence.This panel can say what they have menorize word for word with thier eyes closed what a joke God help us all,But if you are in law enforcement the DA will give you a free out of jail pass ,soon we will see if the County is going to get on the same page as it's tax payers and we'll see them in the next Civil, War Keep your power dry.
