    "I'm glad you seem to know EVERYTHING, because I work with this young man and don't know exactly what happened yet. He's not the type of person who would just get drunk and decide to lie down in the middle of the road. Why don't you stop being so judgemental of someone you don't even know.

    He was most likely just resting there.

    This young man is someone's child. He is someone's sibling. Please think before you pass judgement on someone that you do not know and about a situation you know nothing about. You have no idea if he was impaired due to alcohol, it was just suspected and until proven doesn't mean anything. So please, unless you know what happened, keep your judgments and opinions to yourself.

    Gumby100: Thanks for the remark. I'm trying to type out my comment on my phone. I guess you had a lot to add to the topic though.

    Well I don't know the guy, and hope he is going to be ok but laying in the street is just not gonna turn out good anytime but especially at 1 a.m. I would be highly surprised if alcohol didn't have something to do with this incident.

    "Where I am from the state doesn't make money off liquor sales." And they don't teach punctuation or grammar either.

    "When are people going to stop getting so intoxicated that they don't know what they are doing - when are people going to start taking responsibilities for their actions - So many things could be prevented if people would know when to say "enough" - geezzzz. marinewife101"

    I'm glad you seem to know EVERYTHING, because I work with this young man and don't know exactly what happened yet. He's not the type of person who would just get drunk and decide to lie down in the middle of the road. Why don't you stop being so judgemental of someone you don't even know.

    Where I am from the state doesn't make money off liquor sales. Here they do and I have noticed no matter how many problems out of a bar. For example, fighting, public intox, dwi, underage drinking, ETC... They never close a place down and take there ability to sell liquor. I'm from a college town and given enough problems those places are fined and shut down in a blink of an eye but the only people making money there is private business. Here I think it would be interesting to do a story on this state and profits on sale of alcohol. I imagine since they make money they won't ever fine or shut the places down. Where I'm from it curves over serving and over pouring and they have no problem telling someone that has had to much it is time to leave and usually even though they don't have to call them a cab to get them home. To prevent having any problems.
