Justice…finally.

Posted by Scott Plummer on September 16, 2008

I was going to write a more substantial post about the sentencing of the man responsible for the death of a college friend of mine, but I will just let the news tell the story.

Yesterday was a day that I will never forget as I watched the proceedings from the back of the courtroom. Only when the steel of the handcuffs clasped around his wrists did he look like he finally realized what he had done.

This is the third friend of mine that has lost their life since I graduated in 2001, 2 of them were due to a drunk driver, and one died of cancer. None of them made it past their mid-twenties. Why are my friends dying?
