It is sad that these boys were able to purchase the alcohol. Even more sad that they thought it was a good idea to be irresponsible and have someone drink until they were throwing up and unable to communicate. Yes, the are considered adults but the mentality of high school and college youth today is unreal. If you don't drink and smoke pot, you just aren't able to be popular. Walker should be charged with involuntary manslaughter.

What kind of sick society do we live in where cars and alcohol are the golden grails of what children want more than life itself?
