It was Friday Dec 2 when my son told me what had happened with Jeremy Mercier. My son  could not understand as to why the vehicle whom struck Jeremy Mercier as they did not stop and call for HELP! What is this world coming to? Is it because this driver who struck Jeremy Mercier running from the LAW? Perhaps under the influence! Perhaps illegal substance in the vehicle. I would never accept the fact of someone to say they did not mean to do it! Especially after the fact you fled the scene.  I'm sorry but that stretch of road is like a race track. People are always in a rush.

Excuse me driver and i hope you read this: YOU WILL BE FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO SHOP WILL FIX YOUR CAR FROM THE DAMAGE THAT YOU HAVE SUSTAINED FROM THIS> YOU LEFT AN INNOCENT YOUNG MAN LAYING IN THE COLD DYING! SERIOUSLY WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??????????? I will pray for his family so there is closure.  WHAT IF THIS WAS SOMEONE YOU KNEW????? EVER THINK ABOUT THAT!!!!!!!!!!!! MAN YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW UPSETING THIS IS TO ME, WISHING THAT I COULD FIND YOU QUICKER THAN POLICE!!!!!!!  MY son was out enjoying themselves with his friends having a good time before all this happened until my son decided he wanted to go home then he heard the news. WHAT THE HECK DUDE FESS UP TURN YOURSELF IN.............,,,,
