I told her that popping pills and drinking were gonna catch up with her.

My brother was the victim that died because of this sorry bitch, I hope she gets everything that's coming to her.....

I have known her for years, and she needs to pay for injuring and killing one of them teenagers. Those 2 boys did nothing wrong. Sue was on her way that day to a house at the end of the block to finish stealing the jewelry from a man that died that morning. She will deserve the punishment that is dished out to her by the court. It still wont bring that boy back but knowing justice will be served will have to do. I know for a fact that she has popped more than her share of pills and has a really bad drinking problem. She has had been through 5 husbands. She needs to be put under the prison so she cant hurt anymore teenager/ people. My prayers for the family and hope they find justice. She is a DANGER to society and herself. She shouldn't get her driver license back but I heard she did. She should not be allowed to sit behind the wheel, even a lawn mower. It's so sad that you cant even walk down the street in front of your own house. Prayers for Justice
