    The truck driver seems to have fallen asleep behind the wheel. At least that's what Huffington Post is reporting.

    We have to be on the look out for bullying behavior and nip it in the bud if we see it as parents, and we have to talk to our kids and make sure that they can come to us and talk to us about things if things get hard for them. I'd rather my kid, if I had any, be able to open up to me so we could talk about counseling instead of them killing themselves.

      is still a crime, isn't it? People have been charged with 'negligent manslaughter' for doing this. I don't know know if that's always the case.  Do you have information that this is not considered a crime?

      It's a sad thing for everybody, including the truck driver.

        was that we can't assume it was a crime of intent. Poor wording on my part.

          assuming intent, not your wording.  It was fine really. I just misunderstood.

            though I will try to be a bit more clear about things when I post. ;)
