I cannot begin to comprehend why you would ever post this video. How disrespectful to him, his family, and his friends.

TMZ as a whole, and especially you, Harvey Levin, as the head of this news organisation and as the individual person in charge here, have no dignity and NO respect for other human beings. Don't you ever run your gob about your "journalistic standards" again. You've gone from ambulance chaser to hearse chaser.


Shame on you!

You guys are slimebags, especially you harvey for approving this smut, it popped up on my screen as i was reading something else. After seeing it i refused to press the button because there has to be some set moral values left in this country.I "loved" TMZ, work in Beverly Hills, but this takes the cake. How would any of you feel if this was your son, you had raised him, taken him to practice, watched him take his first steps and then achieve all these things and then find his lifeless body in a field somewhere? And then if that is not enough...have you post this....I REFUSE TO EVER WATCH OR LISTEN TO YOUR **** AGAIN......
