    Thank GOD and his angels for watching over this DWI, underage drinking, operating a motor vehicle with no drivers' license, having a open container in a vehicle, hit-and-run, reckless, careless driving and lost control of his vehicle and went into creek dude.

    So my question is this.

    Was GOD and his angels too busy watching after this clown to save the little boy from drowning in the fountain??

    How is GOD able to save twin boys from drowning in a pool but he is not able to save the little boy in the fountain??

    Is he just selective in who he saves, or is one more important than another?

    I mean really, can anyone answer this for me, I'm not being a wise guy, I'm really curious. How does GOD choose who, and when to save someones life ??

    Let them charge him.....nothing will happen. How many times do you read or hear about prople with multiple DUI charges, they just slap them on the wrist, say no, no and let them go do it again.
