  • Sandy

    Hope Kyle is OK, he did what all friends should do!

    • accidental resident

      Nope, he should have let the jerk drive off while he dialed 911. He wouldn’t be in the hospital that way.

  • mike hunt

    heh my friends would have given me a bottle of ever-clear and put a blindfold on my face……

    • Erica

      Is that supposed to be funny?

    • Kevin

  • jody

    • jody

      I may weigh 280 pounds, but that’s still 100 lbs less than your wife.

  • Me Tho Tupid

    Red headed & balding at 24, no wonder he has anger issues.

    • tired of f ing idiots

  • Jay

    Believe it, or not, this is a serious problem! Yes, we should all do what we can to stop friends from driving under the influence. Yet, YOU clowns make light of this incident. Would you be so eager IF this were your brother, son ,or childs Father? I HOPE the friend recovers fully, and Jason is punished for his stupidity! I wonder will they still be friends after this!

  • Ain't got time to be searched

    I think you can officially take the word “friend” out of the title. :0

    • fixed

      keep in drunk and add acquantaince. Or enemy lol

  • west sider

    I went to school with jason and i have known kyle since i was 3 ….. Kyle has always been a kind and caring person …its ironic when jason was in middle school he was the class clown always getting in trouble ….i guess some people never change.. Prayers to you my friend .

  • get a grip

    I went to school with both as well..its amazing how fast people are to talk smakck and judge on which they dont know

    • tired of f ing idiots

      i agree the both served our country together and now ppl that know them both and also ones that dont know either one want to judge.

    • Erica

      Are you serious? ah… poor druck driver, you’re right. Spare him any punishment. You sound like a complete idiot.

    • Real Talk

      Umm….they drunk a-hole dragged his friend for two blocks because he tried to stop him from driving.

      What else do we need to know before we can make a judgement? Enlighten us smart guy?

      PS…by going to “school” with this guy, i assume you meant middle school. As it is extremely unlike that either of you possess an education level higher than 8th grade. Just sayin.

      • meh

        Let’s not forget the people involved in this terrible accident are people with friends, family, and a life. I understand how easy it is to just jump to the conclusion that Jason is a terrible person, but as far as I’m concerned no one here knows the entire story. Alcohol does bad things to people. I think most of us can say we have experienced someone making a terrible decision while under the influence of alcohol. A decision they would have never considered making when they were sober. I was also friends with them in middle school and attended the same middle school. I’m just saying. This is an awful story, but let’s not pass judgement when we only know what the news tells us.

        • it's a comment board

          Wow,it took until 10:48 pm for the “who are you to judge” speech. Just sayin.

      • Erica




  • why?

    why have i no sympathy for a Kissinger?

  • Scott

    I hope Kissinger makes a full and speedy recovery and Mr. Schultz get some seriously needed help

  • GH

    You must have some mental problems!! Maybe you should’ve been dragged instead.

    Yeah, and marijuana is illegal. Think about how many times each day/week/month that alcohol is responsible for a death(s), lost jobs, lost productivity, etc. Now, just ask yourself how many people die in marijuana-related car crashes each year. We spend tens of millions of dollars every year in our court system and prison system locking up people for using something that if no less harmful than alcohol, certainly no more so. This is insanity. As a taxpayer, I want certain drugs (marijuana for one) to be legalized so it can be taxed and the criminal element associated with its production and distribution will plummet.

      It’s apparent you’ve never had the ‘pleasure’ of living next to a grow operation and the noxious odors they emit. And I’m not talking about sweet tweed.
