-How sad such a good band decided to join the white trash moop I.Q. level. The lack of ability to process the results of high risk behavoir that caused an innocent persons death- unreal !- Why no tribute for the man this drunk sod killed ? Kings of the Trailer Court ...

People bashing because he was drunk. The point is people died. Each life is precious. Show some kindness and have a heart. I'm sure you'd appreciate people mocking and being a holes if your friend was killed the same way. People make stupid mistakes.

I love all the ignorant comments on this site... This was a car accident not murder! His friend had been drinking with him all night and assumed an assumption of risk when he decided to catch a ride with someone that had been drinking. He’s just as responsible as the driver, and if his family sues the judge should throw the case out.

Yeah, it was an error for Dunn to get behind the wheel after a few drinks but guess what... he’s HUMAN! I would guess that most of the general public (and some of the judgmental D’s on this site) have driven drunk at least once. RIP Dunn (good guy that made a bad decision).

He made a decision to drive drunk. He was an adult, not a little child. He f'd up. He took his chances and he LOST. I am sick and tired of people trying to make him a better person than he was http://bit.ly/k2Dx7c

Seriously, i dont see how some of you people could be so cold hearted.

YES, he drank and drove

YES, in the accident he took a friend with him

BUT.. he was still a person, someones SON, BROTHER, and FRIEND.. think about if your friend or sibling, or child was in his shoes, yes you would think "effin idiot did it to himself" BUT you would hurt so badly inside for the great loss you are now having to endure.

for the people who are saying who cares, and he deserved it.. well seriously you are sick and diluted. He made a poor choice, and the outcome will forever lead to pain for his friends and family. Have a heart and dont speak badly!
