Steve I don't think your comment is nessesary nor does it serve a purpose. You should have just refrained from commenting. That person is suffering along with family and friends and I believe I would have been more appropriate to keep opinions to yourself. May you never have to experience what he has been going through. Shame on you.

Infamous Steve reality and truth sucks for people don't ya know that,people do not like to hear common sense,it's everyone else's fault no the individual...what steve is saying to you all is correct,through people's actions causes more restrictions on us,more labels,more of you are now not allowed to do this...kind of stuff...No one likes to hear it, and call it unnecessary when they hear the truth,like could go without saying,but sometimes it does need to be said,....no to many people have the act of self responsibility down,...it always could of been prevented in some way or another cause it's others faults,..more people will come out and say the one thing that just Pis..s me off..." we need more laws,harsher laws to prevent this from happening"....When it does no good.

Well stated Friend. Infamous always feels the need to educate all of us "stupid people". This young man is fighting for his life, and Steve wants to let him know that if he read the sticker on his dirt bike none of this would have happened. Deep thoughts from the famous "infamous". My prayers and thoughts with the family and this young man for a full recovery. And Steve, if you're going to educate us with your superior knowledge of life, and how we should have done something, please learn proper grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.
