Underage Drinkers Against Drunk DrivingTM
Memorial to Double Victims
Victims of the government-imposed drinking age
Victims of the government’s refusal to eliminate drunk driving

Intimidating folks younger than 21 years from drinking alcoholic beverages, instead of eliminating inebriated driving through tougher D.W.I. measures (which would apply to the hypocritical lawmakers themselves, and many older voters who “can driver better drunk than teenagers can sober!”), obviously didn’t keep these outvoted discrimination victims safe.
Ironically, the families of double victims often team up with M.A.D.D. to promote more injustice against responsible people younger than 21 years.

Home Page

The hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving keep saying that every one of these crimes was 100 percent preventable, which is true. So why weren’t they prevented? Because the drinking age is an attack on persons younger than 21, but serious efforts to stop D.W.I. crimes would affect persons who matter.

Abstaining from alcohol keep this high school football player safe. She was riding her bicycle in a designated bicycle lane on the Indian Rock Causeway Bridge near East Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach, Florida on 28 June 2019 at 22:33 local time when a suspected drunk driver, age 69, in a 2014 BMW 320i veered into the bicycle lane and killed her at age 17. He tested 0.064% BRAC four hours after the crash; but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Don’t call the 21 law a stupid law. Enemies of liberty can see the obvious flaws in their absurd excuses. Don’t blame stupidity or even depraved indifference. The 21 law is a calculated, premeditated, malicious attack on your unalienable right to liberty, one of many malicious attacks enforced by the police forces of the hostile government.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this young woman safe. She was crossing Ben King Road in Kennesaw, Georgia, with other pedestrians in a marked crosswalk 8 December 2023 at approximately 20:20 local time.

Along came a red 2017 General Motors Corporation Acadia sport utility vehicle (S.U.V.) whose driver, 68 years old, was originally charged with D.W.I. Alcohol – Less Safe, Obstruction, Serious Injury by Vehicle, and Failure to Yield to Pedestrian. He was subsequently charged with vehicular homicide and failure to yield to a pedestrian, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Alexis Rumer, 19
This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. It was her mother’s second time losing a daughter in a drunk driving crash. On 12 September 2016, just before midnight local time, this woman was driving at the intersection of North Reems Road and West Waddell Road in Surprise, Arizona when she was struck by another vehicle. This woman’s passenger, age 22, was seriously hurt in the crash. The other driver, age 66, was fleeing from police. Police were trying to stop him based on a report of an intoxicated driver. He had just left a bar where he was drunk and disorderly. It was not necessary to prove intoxication because the State was able to prove more serious charges. He was convicted of second-degree murder and aggravated assault, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

At 16:42 CDT on 27 September 2008, he was driving his motorcycle south on Hillcrest Road in Mobile, Alabama when a drunk driver, 63 years old, 0.365% BAC cut him off. The drunk driver was later convicted of murder, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Know your enemy: Even as some victims resort to counterfeiting the official identification documents of the enemy government, and other victims literally flee the country, especially during spring break, for the sole purpose of drinking the beverages of their choice where the law enforcement goons of the enemy government cannot touch them, yet many enemies of liberty honestly think the 21 law does not incite hostility. Yes, they really are that crazy.

The driver who allegedly crossed onto the wrong side and killed her at age 18 on 27 March 2007 faces felony charges including drunk driving (0.16%). He is 63 years old.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this young man safe. He was a passenger in his family’s 2015 Honda Accord, on his way home to Florida with his family 19 June 2021, heading south on U.S. 431 near Oak Grove Road in Madison County, Alabama, just south of New Hope. He was killed in a head-on crash. The other driver, 61 years old, was driving drunk (0.119% BAC four hours later), driving left of center, and struck them head on. He pled guilty to one count of murder and two counts of aggravated assault, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 to drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep these students safe. They were on a sidewalk, practicing for the Moore High School track team just after school on 3 February 2020 in Moore, Oklahoma when an impaired driver suspected of being high on marijuana crashed a pickup truck into them, killing them and injuring four other students. He then fled the scene and crashed again. He was trying to re-start the truck when two football players seized the key and ran. After he got out, a witness said, “I can’t say if he was drunk, or maybe pills of some sort,” but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this guy safe. He and his 13-year-old cousin were both killed. At 0:05 CDT on Sunday, 6 April 2008, they were riding in a Mazda 626 on the Interstate 10 Service Road at west of Louisiana Highway 3246 in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, returning from the movies. A Toyota Pickup truck, traveling at a high rate of speed, crashed into the rear of the Mazda 626. The impact forced the Mazda to rotate and rollover several times prior to coming to rest in a ditch to the right of the road. The Toyota continued east, exited the roadway to the left and stopped in a ditch on the left side of the road. The driver of the Toyota, Mr. Chris Michael Bourgeois (Male/Age 56) of Peachtree, Georgia, was not injured and refused medical attention. He was placed under arrest and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail. Mr. Bourgeois is charged with Driving While Intoxicated (1st Offense), Reckless Operation, Vehicle Homicide (2 counts) and Vehicular Negligent Injuring (2 counts), but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

A 30-day minimum jail sentence for first offense D.W.I. would have deterred some of the killers shown on this memorial; but the drinking age applies to persons younger than 21 years, while the jail sentence would apply to persons who matter.

KILLED BY A DRUNK COP

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not did not keep him safe. On 19 June 2004 at 3:15 local time, he was driving a Ford Taurus at the intersection of Warren and Burns in Detroit, Michigan when a drunk Detroit, Michigan cop, 55, drove the wrong way down a one-way street and killed him at age 20, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
Well, that’s one way to prevent underage drinking. Before reporting an underage drinking party, consider what could happen, God forbid, after the alcoholic beverages fall into the hands of a cop.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this young woman safe. She was walking home from Deer Park High School in Deer Park, Texas on 14 November 2023 at approximately 15:30 local time, when a suspected drunk driver, 55, with three prior D.W.I.’s, was headed north in the 2100 block of Georgia Avenue, swerved across two southbound lanes and struck a metal light pole, knocking it down, slamming the girl down and crushing her head. She was rushed to Memorial Herman Hospital in Houston, Texas where she was on life support but died 17 November 2023.

The suspect ran an addiction recovery program. The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has charged the suspect with murder, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

A drunk driver, 54 years old, with a prior D.W.I., was driving drunk and had taken Oxycodone, and was driving without a required ignition interlock when he caused a four-vehicle crash.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. On 7 October 2000 at 23:50 local time, she was driving a blue 2000 Honda Civic ewa-bound on School Street in Honolulu, Hawai‘i when a mauka-bound drunk cop sped through a red-phase traffic control device at the intersection of Pali Highway, striking the driver side of the Honda and killing her at 19, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
Well, that’s one way to prevent underage drinking. Before reporting an underage drinking party, consider what could happen, God forbid, after the alcoholic beverages fall into the hands of a cop.

These women never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep them safe. On 23 December 2016 at 23:15 local time, they were traveling on Highway 9 in Inman, South Carolina when a drunk (0.245% BAC) driver, 48, crashed into them head on. He was charged with two counts of felony D.W.I. with death, felony D.W.I. with great bodily injury, having an open container in his vehicle, failure to register his vehicle and being uninsured, according to the Spartanburg County Detention Center records, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was riding in a Honda Civic just before midnight on 28 January 2006 when when a drunk (0.195% BAC) driver, 48 years old, in a Ford Econoline van ran a red-phase traffic control signal at the intersection of Highway 100 and Beloit Road in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and crashed into him, but at least the suspect wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The driver and the other passenger, both 17, were hurt.

Know your enemy: Even if you got accepted at a very demanding college, many enemies of liberty assume you’re too stupid to figure out why they’d rather impose the drinking age on you than impose tougher D.W.I. laws on themselves. Yes, they really are that crazy. (In some States, the drinking age was raised “to save lives on the road,” and they didn’t even have an open container law, because it would apply to persons who matter.)

On 30 September 2008 at 13:43 CDT he was heading south on Interstate 540 near the Bobby Harper Tunnel in Washington County, Arkansas when a drunk driver, 47, (0.16% BAC) going the wrong way, struck him head on. But at least the suspect wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was riding in a Hyundai Sonata headed north on Highway 43 just north of Wasco Avenue in Bakersfield, California on 25 March 2018 at approximately 20:30 local time. He and some of his family members were returning home from his sister’s quinceañera practice.

Maria Rodriguez, 47, was driving a Chevrolet Silverado south on Highway 43 when she crossed into the northbound lanes and struck the Hyundai head-on, killing herself, this man, his sister, 14, brother, 11 and father, 40, and injured this man’s brother, 17.

She was driving drunk and driving left of center, and she caused a crash that killed herself and four innocent persons while seriously injuring another innocent person, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Ironically, this man’s mother got involved with M.A.D.D. to push for more unforgivable injustice to persons younger than 21 years.

ELEVEN PRIOR D.W.I.’S
This man and this woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep them safe. On 2 March 2006, they were in a Dodge Shadow, Hopkins at the wheel, when a drunk driver with eleven prior D.W.I. convictions crossed onto their side of Tavern Road in Burton, Ohio and struck them head-on with a pick-up truck. He tested 0.26% BAC. He was driving drunk, driving left of center, speeding, driving under suspension and leading police on a chase, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The criminal died 12 May 2022 at age 63 at a hospital near the prison.

Abstaining from alcohol did not make these four teenagers safe. They were in a red Chevy Cobalt on Gratiot Avenue near Masonic Boulevard in Roseville, Michigan on 16 March 2009 at 20:30 EDT, waiting at a red-phase traffic control signal, when a drunk driver, 47, in a full-sized van, spun out of control, struck a light pole and then struck them. Media offer conflicting reports of her blood-alcohol content as 0.20% and 0.23%.

He was riding his motorcycle on Route 47 toward Wildwood, New Jersey on 21 June 2008 at approximately 15:45 local time, when he was killed in a head-on crash with a sport utility vehicle (S.U.V.)

The S.U.V. driver was driving drunk (0.370% B.A.C.,) and was seen weaving between northbound and southbound lanes, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The drunk (0.370% BAC) driver, 47, born 17 May 1961, got 9 years and died in prison. Another “teenager killed in a drunk driving crash.”

The suspect was charged with drunk driving. (0.23% BAC) and went to prison for Death By Vehicle Felony and Failure To Stop For Accident, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

She was driving a 2002 Dodge Neon on Highway 105 in Hardin County, Texas in March 2007 when a drunk driver, 44, in a 1999 Dodge Dakota crossed onto her side and struck her head-on, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called MothersAgainst Drunk Driving.

He was riding a bicycle on Quincy Street, near Holland in Olive Township, Michigan on 27 June 2009 at 08:30 EDT when a drunk (0.18% BAC) driver, 44, with four prior D.W.I. convictions ran the stop sign at U.S. 31 and struck him, then fled the scene, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

The cases on this memorial are documented with links to independent sources that give details. When MADD offers statistics, you are expected to take their word for it. They cleverly omit mentioning how some “teenagers killed in DWI crashes” were doing nothing wrong and were killed by older drivers who can freely buy all the booze they want.

Gregory Glen Kuehnel, Jr., 18
2 July 2004 - 26 June 2023
This man, a student at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not did not keep him safe. He was a passenger in a 2023 Dodge Charger, in a crash with a 2021 Ford Bronco that happened at 23:31 local time 24 June 2023 at the intersection of Illinois Route 3 and Illinois Route 143 in Wood River, Illinois.

The Bronco driver, Dustin L. Gilliland, 44, has been charged with aggravated D.W.I., reckless homicide, and driving under suspension, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Ironically, the obituary suggests donating to that organized hate group so they can spend the money pushing their favorite unforgivable hate crime against persons younger than 21 years.

On 21 December 2006, he was killed when the car he was riding in was struck head-on by a pickup truck. Investigators say the driver, 44, who already had two D.W.I. convictions., was drunk. He pleaded guilty to one count of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault and was sentenced to just under 13 years in prison but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

That driver, 44, with a prior D.W.I. involving injury and another D.W.I. pending, faces charges pending results of a blood test. Authorities said they smelled alcohol on him.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

Alisha García, 17, was killed; Arissa García, 15, was seriously hurt, and four other family members were killed on 11 November 2006 near Santa Fe, New Mexico. They were struck by a pickup truck whose driver was 44 and already had three D.W.I. convictions. He was driving drunk, 0.32%, and going the wrong way on Interstate 25, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Without efforts to prevent underage drinking, there could be an increase in the number of drunk driving deaths and injuries among these inexperienced drivers.

This should help you understand statistics on “teenagers killed in drunk driving crashes.” These were two of Allah’s obedient teetotallers. They died on the scene after being hit from behind by a blue 2005 Kia Optima that swerved onto the shoulder where the girls were walking along Kinnelon Road in Kinnelon, New Jersey on 20 April 2006. The victims were propelled into the air. The drunk driver, age 44, tested 0.305% BAC, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

The bride never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not did not keep her safe. 58 days after their wedding, they were riding a motorcycle on U.S. Highway 411 near Sevierville, Tennessee 26 September 2006 just after 16:30 local time when a the driver of a Ford F-150 pickup truck crossed onto their side and struck them head on. The driver, age 43, had three prior D.W.I.’s, was a habitual traffic offender, was driving drugged, violating his probation, and driving under suspension, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Sadly, the victim’s family asked people not to send flowers to the funeral, but to make memorial donations to M.A.D.D., which spends money promoting an unforgivable hate crime against persons younger than 21. M.A.D.D. even exploits this deadly crime for their own gain: CLICK HERE. M.A.D.D. should be telling lawmakers to impose tougher D.W.I. laws, even though such laws would apply to the hypocritical lawmakers themselves; instead of maliciously violating the unalienable right of innocent persons younger than 21 years to enjoy liberty.

On 19 July 2009 at 22:30 EDT, she was outside her home on Francis Scott Key Highway in Keymar, Maryland, talking to some friends who were in a 1998 Chevy Prizm that pulled up, when a man, 42 years old, driving a 1992 Ford F-150 pickup and reeking of alcoholic drink crossed onto the wrong side and struck the Prizm, which struck her.

After consultation with the Carroll County State’s Attorney’s Office, troopers charged the guy with negligent manslaughter by automobile, negligent automobile homicide while under the influence, negligent homicide by automobile while impaired, driving a vehicle while under the influence, driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol per se, driving while impaired by alcohol, negligent driving, reckless driving, failure to obey a traffic control device, failure to exercise due care to avoid a pedestrian collision, and consuming an alcoholic beverage in the passenger area of a motor vehicle on a highway. But at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

He plea-bargained and faces 12-18 months for negligent homicide. Another “teenager killed in a drunk driving crash” to add to the official tally.

The driver of the Land Rover, Adam Gauthier, 41 years old, faces two counts each of manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol, motor vehicle homicide while driving drunk and one count each of drunken driving in a crash causing serious bodily injury, drunken driving and driving the wrong way on a state highway, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

She was in a Toyota Echo with 3 other persons on Route 9 near Texas Road in Old Bridge, New Jersey on 18 July 2021 at 4:28 local time, when an inebriated driver, 40, (born 10 May 1981) smashed his Ford Expedition into the rear of the Toyota, killing her at age 20 and injuring her father. He got 8 years. But at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

The suspect was charged with driving under suspension causing death or serious injury, driving under the influence with two prior convictions, two counts of DUI manslaughter, two counts of homicide-negligent manslaughter vehicular killing of human, and violation of probation but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

She was found dead at the scene. Investigators say the other driver, age 40, was driving 60 miles per hour in a 40 mile-per-hour zone, and that she told them she had drunk a 12-pack. They say she could not perform the field sobriety test. She was charged with vehicular homicide by D.W.I., but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Well, that’s one way to prevent underage drinking. Before reporting an underage drinking party, consider what could happen, God forbid, after the alcoholic beverages fall into the hands of a cop.

The criminal was driving drunk, violating the terms of a deferred sentence for D.W.I. out of Louisiana, and going the wrong way in the southbound lanes; and he was convicted of leaving the scene of a crash involving death, and second-degree murder, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving; so rather than join them, the double-victim’s parents founded Victims of Impaired Driving.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

Tennessee Highway Patrol says she was riding in a car with a friend driving, going north on Maynardsville Pike in Knox County, Tennessee on 27 June 2021 just before 20:00 local time, when a drunk driver, age 39, going south, texting while driving, crossed into the northbound lane and struck them head on, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The friend driving was seriously injured in the crash.

Strangely, the victim’s mother reportedly is teaming up with MADD, which only wants persons younger than 21 to be victimized more.

The S.U.V. burst into flames and all three women died at the scene. The suspect was charged with driving without his seatbelt buckled, failing to drive on the right-hand side of the road, D.W.I. fourth offense, and three counts of vehicular homicide, and was sentenced to 85 years in prison, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. On 12 March 2022 he was driving on Lake Olympia Parkway in Missouri City, Texas, en route to a friend’s house when a suspected drunk driver, age 38, driving a Mazda, tried to turn into Sunshine Lane, failing to yield the right of way and striking him. Cops say she was reeking of alcohol, and that she is charged with murder, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Know your enemy: Abolitionists ran into the same problem. The place is overrun with crazy, deranged, depraved, degenerate, selfish, greedy potholes. It is not your job to persuade them because that is impossible while they refuse to shut off their crazy switch, their stupid switch and their wicked switch. It makes no difference how strong your arguments are or how well you prove your case. They don’t give a fire truck. You can’t fix crazy.

Citiali Mora and Nelly Amaya-Ramirez, both 16
Abstaining from alcohol did not keep these young ladies safe. On 3 August 2020 at approximately 19:00 local time, they were in a marked crosswalk at the corner of East Katie Avenue and South Maryland Parkway in Las Vegas, Nevada, on their way to a bus stop after leaving a shopping mall, when they were hit with a 2012 Mercedez-Benz that was going south on Maryland Parkway, approaching that intersection.

The driver of the Mercedez Benz, 38 years old, was impaired by alcohol, P.C.P., marijuana and methamphetamine. She pleaded guilty to D.W.I. resulting in death, and reckless driving, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This engaged couple never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep them safe. They were sitting in their car, parked on the Pickford Avenue side of Peterson Playfield in Detroit, Michigan, on 13 April 2017 when a speeding driver, 37, lost control of his Camaro and went flying, landing on their vehicle with two girls in the back seat, ages 15 and 17, also seriously injured. The Camaro driver pleaded no contest to two charges of second-degree murder, two counts of operating under the influence causing death and two counts of operating under the influence causing serious injury, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for anybody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Tiffany Ann Woodham, 19
2 March 1993 - 4 November 2012
This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. She was on her way to the hospital, having a baby, at 22:19 local time on 4 November 2012. She was sitting in the left backseat of a 2010 Chrysler van, which was stopped at a red-phase traffic control signal at the intersection of US Highway 27 and Cypress Gardens Boulevard in Winter Haven, Florida. A drunk (0.131% BAC) driver, 37, in a Dodge pick-up truck, rear-ended the Chrysler just as the light turned green. The woman was rushed to hospital but she and her baby died. The suspect has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of D.W.I. manslaughter, two counts of D.W.I. involving serious bodily injury, D.W.I. crash involving property damage and D.W.I., but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages resposibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Don’t call the 21 law a stupid law. Enemies of liberty can see the obvious flaws in their absurd excuses. Don’t blame stupidity or even depraved indifference.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. On 6 December 2019 at approximately 1:00 local time, he was in a minivan on southbound Interstate 95 in Bristol Township, Pennsylvania when the rear of the vehicle was stricken with a Mazda CX-5 that was going 106 miles per hour (171 km/h). The impact made the minivan veer off the roadway and crash into a concrete barrier, killing both this man and a woman, age 35, in the back seat, who both burned to death. The double victim’s father and brother, were burned but survived.

The Mazda driver, age 37, tested 0.151% BAC and was convicted of two counts each of third-degree murder, aggravated assault – serious bodily injury, recklessly endangering another person, homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence (D.W.I.), aggravated assault by vehicle while D.W.I., homicide by vehicle, and aggravated assault by vehicle. The trial court separately found him guilty of D.W.I. – general impairment, D.W.I. – high rate of alcohol, and summary offenses of driving within single lane, following too closely, driving vehicle at safe speed, and reckless driving (collectively, “non-jury offenses”), but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Matthew William Eskeli, 20
14 February 1999 - 2 July 2019
This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was driving a 2012 Ford Focus eastbound on Interstate 70 through Clark County, Ohio 2 July 2019 at approximately 2:33 local time, when he was struck with a 2008 BMW M3, killing him and injuring two passengers.

The BMW driver, 37 years old, struck the side of the Focus and forced the Focus off the right-hand side of the roadway, where the Ford struck an exit sign (Exit 59, going onto U.S. Highway 41) and a light pole and rolled over, resting on its side. The BWM driver continued eastward for a short distance until his machine became disabled. He was convicted of aggravated vehicular homicide and aggravated vehicular assault, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

The Avalanche driver, Lawrence Stephon Darensburg, 37, born 27 September 1985, Louisiana Department of Public Safety & Corrections ID Number 23001504, was charged with vehicular homicide, felony hit-and-run, driving while impaired (second offense) unlicensed driving, speeding and a safety belt violation; but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

30 June 1997 - 30 April 2018
This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was in his 2008 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, waiting at a stop sign at the Exit 1 on-ramp of Interstate 89 on Logging Hill Road in Bow, New Hampshire on 30 April 2018 at 21:21 local time, when a drunk (0.16% BAC) driver, age 35, with two prior D.W.I.’s, drove a 2017 Nissan Altima into him at 60 miles per hour (96 km/h), killing him 61 days short of his 21st birthday.

The killer pled guilty to negligent homicide and aggravated D.W.I., but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
The New Hampshire drinking age was raised from 18 to 20 on 24 May 1979. It was raised again on 1 June 1985 to 21. They still did not have an open container law, because that would apply to persons who matter. It was still lawful to drink alcoholic beverages while driving, if you were 21 years or older, but unlawful to drink alcoholic beverages responsibly if you were younger than 21 years. It wasn’t until 16 August 2021 that Governor Sununu signed a bill allowing judges to mete out longer prison sentences to killers with prior D.W.I.’s. The law is named after the victim in this case, who coincidentally was killed at 21:21 local time. It applies only after the drunk driver kills somebody. And only recently did Congress start considering bills to require ignition interlocks on all new cars, because that affects persons who matter.

The drunk driver was found guilty of operating with a high blood-alcohol content causing serious injury, with a prior conviction, and operating with a high blood-alcohol content causing death with a prior conviction, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. On 22 July 2008 at 18:00 PDT, he was driving a 1996 Lexus on Highway 78 near Ramona, California when a drunk driver, 35, 0.19% BAC in a pickup truck going east crossed over onto the westbound side to pass vehicles and struck him. This double victim’s girlfriend was also badly hurt, and a passenger in the drunk driver’s truck was also killed.

On 11 July 2009 at 00:41 EDT, these guys were riding in a Mazda Four-door driven by the victims’ grandmother, which was stopped at a traffic light on the U.S. 15 Bypass at the intersection of South Fifth Street, south of Hartsville, South Carolina, when a drunk driver, 35, with a prior felony D.W.I., driving a Chevy Blazer traveling south on the bypass slammed into the rear of the car. McFadden died at the scene. Brown died Sunday at Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital in Columbia. The drunk driver did no jail time for his prior felony D.W.I. The victims’ grandmother was also killed in the crash.

This man never got a chance to drink alcohol lawfully. At 00:40 on 18 November 2005, he was killed in a head-on crash at mile 36 on Interstate 485 in North Carolina.

The other driver was 35, already had two D.W.I. convictions, had just polished off a six pack, was speeding and was going the wrong way. But at least the suspect wasn’t drinking under age or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

and her younger sister. Both were killed.
Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this young lady safe. On 6 May 2018 at approximately 17:30 local time, she was in a Buick in a left-turning lane on Woodbine Road in Pace, Florida, about to turn left onto Dunning Drive when the Buick was struck head on with a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck. She and her sister, 7 years old, were killed; and their mother, 39 years old, and another passenger, 18 years old, were seriously hurt.

The F-150 driver, 35 years old, was found guilty of two counts of D.W.I. manslaughter and one count of fleeing law enforcement with no regard for serious bodily injury or death, for which he was sentenced to life in prison, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Know your enemy: Even if you got accepted at a very demanding college, many enemies of liberty assume you’re too stupid to figure out why they’d rather impose the drinking age on you than impose tougher D.W.I. laws on themselves. Yes, they really are that crazy. (In some States, the drinking age was raised “to save lives on the road,” and they didn’t even have an open container law, because it would apply to persons who matter.)

This girl was killed when the driver of a Ford Taurus, age 35, triggered a five-car pile-up at DuPont Circle in Northwest Washington, D.C. on 3 January 1997. Four other persons were injured. Police suspected the Taurus driver had been drinking and was intoxicated, but could not administer an alcohol breath test because that driver, Gueorgui Makharadze, 35, enjoyed diplomatic immunity at the time, which was later waived by President Eduard Shevardnadze of the Republic of Georgia. Sentenced to 7-21 years, he was transferred to a prison in the Republic of Georgia in 2000 and he served only 3 years in prison total.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

28 January 1998 - 22 November 2014
This boy was riding his motorcycle on 22 November 2014 just before 17:00 local time, at the intersection of Third and Reinken in Belen, New Mexico when a drunk driver, Dejohni Orndorff, 33 years old, cut him off, causing him to crash into the passenger side of her vehicle. The defendant pled guilty to aggravated drunk driving, but the vehicular homicide charge was dropped on a technicality because her lawyer wouldn't be able to cross-examine the doctor who performed the autopsy, because he no longer worked for the agency. Had prosecutors moved more quickly this might not have happened, but authorities obviously do not prioritize getting inebriated drivers off the road. They’d rather dedicate resources to enforcing underage drinking laws. She would have only gotten six years, maximum, anyway.
In the State of New Mexico, it is a felony to provide alcoholic beverages to a person younger than 21, (NM Stat § 60-7B-1 (2020)), punishable by 18 months improsonment (NM Stat § 31-18-15 (1996 through 1st Sess 50th Legis)), while drunk driving is punishable by imprisonment for 90 days (NM Stat § 66-8-102 (2018)). Obviously, New Mexico lawmakers don’t care about drunk driving.

This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. On 26 March 2006, as she was riding in a pickup truck, returning from Spring Break, heading back to Ohio, allegedly a drunk driver, 32, going the wrong way on Interstate 95 in Georgia, struck the pickup truck and killed her.

These two were in a 1997 Dodge Ram pickup traveling east on 12th Street near Hastings in Adams County, Nebraska at 0:30 local time on 12 December 2021 when a suspected drunk driver allegedly ran a stop sign going north on Blaine Avenue. The crash caused the Ram to enter the northeast ditch with extensive front end damage and land on its side. These two vicitms were burned so badly it was difficult to identify their bodies. Two other passengers were rushed to hospital.
Deputies who contacted Pingel noticed the odor of alcohol coming from him, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Pingel failed to answer questions correctly. An officer observed Pingel to be “very clumsy” and said he “was having trouble trying to walk” to the medical service unit. Once inside, Pingel stumbled around until lying down on a stretcher.Doniphan Herald on the Wayback Machine ... Cached

The suspect faces two counts of motor vehicle homicide while driving under the influence of alcohol, a Class 2A felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that’s what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This woman and this man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully. They were en route to work just before 9:00 local time Saturday morning, 10 June 2023, when their car was struck at Higgins and Barrington Roads in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Both victims were transported to hospital but died. The driver who allegedly ran a red-phase traffic control signal tested 0.136% BAC and was charged with five felonies including D.W.I., reckless homicide and trying to disarm a cop, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Did you know? Governor Snelling twice vetoed bills to raise the Vermont drinking age, telling lawmakers to crack down on drunk driving instead. They didn’t like that. They would have to impose tougher D.W.I. laws on themselves, and that is not fair to hypocrites tho “can drive better drunk than teenagers can sober.” But finally Governor Snelling won, and they passed a bill that cracked down a little, but obviously not enough.

The suspect faces charges of D.W.I., vehicular feticide, first-degree homicide by vehicle, serious injury by vehicle, and failure to obey a traffic control device, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Yes, they really are that crazy. (In some States, the drinking age was raised “to save lives on the road,” and they didn’t even have an open container law, because it would apply to persons who matter.)

This woman never got a chance to drink alcohol lawfully. She had to pull her Honda CRV into the hitch-hiking lane of Interstate 495, the Capital Beltway in Fairfax County, Virginia on 5 March 2022 due to car trouble. She had her flashers blinking and had set highway flares, but at 21:27 local time, the driver of a Buick Verano, age 31, crashed into her and killed her at age 20. He has since been arrested and charged with D.W.I. manslaughter, D.W.I., refusal to take a breath test, and for driving on the shoulder, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. She was killed in a crash at 1:45 local time 21 March 2014 as she and two sorority sisters walked in the bicycle lane in the 1400 block of West Beach Boulevard in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Perhaps AL.com expresses it best:
     For 19-year-old Kasey Waychoff and her fellow Oklahoma State University sorority sisters, the choices were responsible that night: Walking home and taking shuttle buses while partying in Gulf Shores over Spring Break.
     Justin Lott, 30, of Montgomery, made another choice. He opted to drive his truck after a night of drinking while visiting Orange Beach for his brother's bachelor party.


She was hit with a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck which swerved and struck her. The driver fled the scene and when he was stopped he failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a breath test, and he was later found guilty of manslaughter and leaving the scene of an “accident” with injury, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Know your enemy: Even as some victims resort to counterfeiting the official identification documents of the enemy government, and other victims literally flee the country, especially during spring break, for the sole purpose of drinking the beverages of their choice where the law enforcement goons of the enemy government cannot touch them, yet many enemies of liberty honestly think the 21 law does not incite hostility.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. She was a front-seat passenger in a crash that injured three other teenagers on Thanksgiving night, 1999 in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. The Grand Am driver, age 30, who crashed into them head-on was drunk, 0.24%, driving under suspension for a prior D.W.I. and was going the wrong way on Interstate 76. He was convicted of murder. But at least the suspect wasn’t drinking under age or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

“Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?” – Thomas Sowell

Innocent persons younger than 21 are being punished for crimes committed by their ancestors half a century ago and drunk drivers are still getting a slap on the wrist.

This guy and his buddies were on their way to watch a hockey game, driving on Ten Rod Road (Route 165) near Arcadia Road in Exeter, Rhode Island on 12 February 2022 at approximately 21:30 local time, when their car was struck head on by a black 2013 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by a suspected drunk driver, age 30. Rhode Island State Police said the suspect was charged at the scene (before the victim had died) with two counts of driving to endanger resulting in personal injury, and two counts of driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs resulting in serious bodily injury, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Maria Elena Cruz, 16
On 4 September 2019, an emergency medical technician (EMT) in El Prado, New Mexico arrived at a crash scene and found his 16-year-old daughter dead at the scene. A 30-year-old country singer with a prior D.W.I. was driving drunk (0.28% BAC) in a Chevrolet Equinox south on State Road 522 at mile marker 1 in Taos at 102 miles per hour (164 km/h) when she clipped a Chevrolet Avalanche in front of her. The jolt sent the Equinox into the northbound lane where it struck Maria Elena Cruz, 16, killing her. Toxicology results showed alcohol in Harris played a major role in the crash, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was riding in a church bus in rural Carroll County, Kentucky on 14 May 1988 when the bus was hit head-on by a pickup truck.

The pickup truck driver, 29 years old, had a prior D.W.I., was driving drunk (0.24% BAC) and going the wrong way on Interstate 71, and he killed 27 innocent persons while injuring 37 more in the worst D.W.I. crash in the history of the United States of America, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He got released on parole.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. Just after 2:00 local time 20 March 2019, he was driving his Ford Fusion east in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 565, taking Exit 7 for County Line Road in the part of Limestone County, Alabama annexed by the City of Huntsville, Alabama. He was struck head-on with a Dodge Ram that was approaching the Interstate from an off-ramp instead of an on-ramp.

Allegedly, the driver of the Ram, 29 years old, was driving drunk and going the wrong way on the ramp. He has been charged with murder, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Kills Anti-D.W.I. Activist

Shannon Nicole Adkins, 18
31 December 1989 - 9 November 2008
This woman, who studied teenage highway deaths for her senior project in high school, never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. At approximately 23:37 local time 8 November 2008, she was driving a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck north on Buffalo Road just short of Raintree Drive in Clayton, North Carolina when a drunk driver, Desiree Kathryn Olsen, 29, born 28 January 1979, speeding, crossed onto her side and struck her head-on, but at least the suspect wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The impact threw the Tacoma off the road and onto a wooden fence near the intersection of Buffalo Road and Kentucky Drive, where it came to rest upside down, pinning Adkins — who was wearing her seat belt — in the wreckage. She was pronounced dead at the scene by medical personnel in first responders units and troopers from the state Highway Patrol. Another “teenager killed in a drunk driving crash” to add to the misleading statistics.

He is projected to be released after less than 3 years, on 4 July 2023, perhaps because authorities feel he wasn’t doing anything seriously wrong, like drinking under age of buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly. (On 18 August 2023 he was not listed as an inmate on the Texas Department of Criminal Justice website.)

Let’s see now, they had to raise the drinking age in the 1980’s to save lives on the road. Then they abolished the 55-m.p.h. speed limit, because that was inconvenient to persons who matter.

This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. She was driving on Highway 101 in Encino, California on 1 November 2009 at 02:00 PDT, on her way home from a Halloween night teen dance club in Hollywood. She was on the 101 Freeway in Encino, California when she was struck head on by a drunk driver, Hector J. Ortiz, age 27, who was going the wrong way. Two passengers of Ms. Moss were injured.

Don’t call the 21 law a stupid law. Enemies of liberty can see the obvious flaws in their absurd excuses. Don’t blame stupidity or even depraved indifference. The 21 law is a calculated, premeditated, malicious attack on your unalienable right to liberty, one of many malicious attacks enforced by the police forces of the hostile government.

Honor Wallace, 19
This woman never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep her safe. On 24 September 2023 at approximately 16:20 local time, she was driving her Volkswagen Jetta east on Monticello Avenue at the North Central Expressway service road in Dallas, Texas when another driver allegedly ran a red-phase traffic control signal and struck her. Police say the suspect had glassy eyes, slurred speech and smelled like alcohol. Police also say the suspect admitted to drinking a margarita with tequila shots infused, at a restaurant earlier. The suspect was charged with intoxication manslaughter; and intoxication assault for the Jetta passenger who was injured, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

KILLED BY A DRUNK COP

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was a passenger riding with his parents in their 2014 Nissan on the 605 Freeway south of Saratoga Street in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles County near Whittier, California on 26 September 2017 at approximately 22:15 local time when a drunk (0.13% BAC) cop driving a 2016 Chevy Camaro crashed into their vehicle and a 2010 Scion from behind at a high speed. The Nissan burst into flames.

An investigator said data from the Camaro indicated the off-duty cop was going 151 miles per hour (243 km/h). The cop was arrested for three murders and D.W.I., but at least he wasn’t drinking under age or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
Well, that’s one way to prevent underage drinking. Before reporting an underage drinking party, consider what could happen, God forbid, after the alcoholic beverages fall into the hands of a cop.

She was killed when the small pickup truck in which she was riding was hit head-on on the Costa Mesa Freeway in Orange, California near the Lincoln Avenue off-ramp at ap[proximately 1:33 local time of 30 November 2007. Her boyfriend, Steven Nguyen, who was driving the pickup truck, was injured.

The other driver, Yanira Ramirez, 25, was driving a 2006 Nissan Altima drunk (0.19% BAC,) going the wrong way on the freeway, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Know your enemy: Abolitionists ran into the same problem. The place is overrun with crazy, deranged, depraved, degenerate, selfish, greedy potholes. It is not your job to persuade them because that is impossible while they refuse to shut off their crazy switch, their stupid switch and their wicked switch. It makes no difference how strong your arguments are or how well you prove your case. They don’t give a fire truck. You can’t fix crazy.

This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. On 24 November 2016, Thanksgiving Day, just before 3:00 local time, he was riding in a Subaru coupe going north on Interstate 25 near Erie, Colorado, near mile marker 231, when he was hit with a 2004 Jeep. The Subaru driver, 16 years old and doing nothing wrong, was critically injured. They were heading home from a concert in Colorado Springs.

The Jeep driver, 25 years old, with a prior D.W.I., was going the wrong way. He later pleaded guilty to charges of vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, and D.W.I., but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

They were in a white Toyota Camry, Miss Watt at the wheel, south on Cherry Avenue Northeast in Salem, Oregon on 2 June 2019 at 23:30 local time, when a drunk (0.239% BAC) driver, age 25, with a prior D.W.I., driving a Jeep on Salem Parkway ran a red-phase traffic control signal at 85 miles per hour (137 km/h) and crashed into them. He was charged with three counts of first-degree manslaughter, four counts of reckless endangering of another person, one count of third-degree assault, one count of reckless driving and one count of D.W.I., and was found guilty of three counts of first-degree manslaughter, D.W.I. and two counts of third-degree assault, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who years drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep these guys safe. They were at a party on 1 August 1988 when Olympic medalist Bruce Kimball (who was seriously hurt on 11 October 1981 in a crash caused by a drunk driver) was driving his sports car at what police estimated to be 75 miles per hour (121 km/h) when it slammed into a group of young people and cars at a popular gathering spot on an unlighted dead-end stretch of a road near Brandon, Florida.

Kimball admitted that he had been drinking earlier in the day, and prosecutors said a blood-alcohol test administered that night recorded 0.20 (200 mg/dL), twice the legal limit, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The drunk driver got his license restored in 2014.

These women never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep them safe. They were in a Toyota Corolla at the intersection of Churn Creek Road and Hartnell Avenue in Redding, California 3 November 2017 at approximately 0:35 local time. The driver waited until the traffic control signal ended its red phase and began its green phase and just then the Corolla was struck in the rear with a Ford Freestyle sport utility vehicle (S.U.V.). The crash also injured three other occupants of the Corolla.

The S.U.V. driver, 25 years old, was driving drunk (0.254% B.A.C.,) and speeding at 100 miles per hour (161 km/h), and was convicted of two counts of second-degree murder, but at least she wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Abstaining from alcohol did not keep these students safe. On the evening of 5 August 2022, at 23:58 local time, they were riding southbound in a Honda Ridgeline pickup truck on the Interstate 25 frontage road, near mile marker 179, near Castle Rock, Colorado when they were hit head on with a Toyota sport utility vehicle (S.U.V.). Another passenger, and the Honda driver, both also 17, were injured in the crash.

The driver who hit them, 25 years old, with a prior D.W.I. crash with injury, was violating his probation for that, driving left of center, driving while intoxicated (0.091% B.A.C. and high on THC,) and speeding, and was convicted of two counts of vehicular homicide – D.W.I., one count of vehicular assault – D.W.I. and careless driving, among other charges, for which he was sentenced to 31 years in prison, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

These were two of Allah’s obedient teetotallers, riding in the back seat of a car that had the green-phase traffic control signal on Harlem Avenue in Tinley Park, Illinois on 12 February 2005 at 3:06 Central Standard Time. They were returning from a work shift in Indiana. A drunk (0.176% BAC) cop sped eastward into the intersection, running the red-phase traffic control signal at 80 miles per hour (129 km/h) and crashing into them.
Before reporting an underage drinking party, consider what could happen, God forbid, after the alcoholic beverages fall into the hands of a cop.

Drawing the line: Everyone has a right to abstain from alcoholic beverages and other drugs. Property owners have a right to use their money and real estate in ways that encourage abstinence, such as holding forth alcohol-free parties. Parents have a right to govern their child who lives in their house. Enemies of liberty have a right to hold and express wrong opinions. Legislators have a right to manufacture any documents they wish, but they cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, no matter what is inscribed thereon; nor can they delegate, by manufacturing documents, any authority they do not have. Nobody has a right to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate anybody else into obeying underage drinking laws without the latter’s consent.

MADD supports suffering convicted drunk drivers to get reinstated and start driving lawfully again, sooner, if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars. Would MADD support suffering folks younger than 21 to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully if they get ignition interlocks installed in their cars? I mean, if interlocks are so effective, right? Nay, their hatred runs too deep. This life-saving technology is for the benefit of criminals only.

<sarcasm>No wonder MADD pushes for tough laws against underage drinking. Look at all the people ages 15-20 getting killed in D.W.I. crashes.</sarcasm>

Emanuel Camacho, 17
Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this young man, 17-year-old Atascadero High School senior, safe. He was killed while walking alone on the shoulder of El Camino Real near the Santa Barbara Road intersection in Atascadero, California in the early morning of 9 September 2007. A drunk driver, 24, struck him and fled the scene. The drunk driver received seven years for felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, felony hit-and-run, misdemeanor driving on a suspended or revoked license and a related enhancement of leaving the scene of an alcohol-related vehicular homicide, but at least the suspect wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Sean Alexander Banks, 15
7 March 2003 - 12 January 2019
Abstaining from alcohol did not keep this young man safe. At approximately 0:30 local time 12 January 2019 his sister, 22 years old, was driving him in a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant on East Kingsfield Road at the intersection of Kingsfield Drive in Pensacola, Florida when they were struck head-on with a 2015 Chevy Malibu.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Malibu driver, 24 years old, was under the influence of Alprazolam or Xanax, and had marijuana in his system, and crossed over the center line, driving on the wrong side of the road, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Know your enemy: Even if you got accepted at a very demanding college, many enemies of liberty assume you’re too stupid to figure out why they’d rather impose the drinking age on you than impose tougher D.W.I. laws on themselves. Yes, they really are that crazy. (In some States, the drinking age was raised “to save lives on the road,” and they didn’t even have an open container law, because it would apply to persons who matter.)

Daniel Robert Kinnaird
27 February 1989 - 10 November 2009
This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He died 109 days before his 21st birthday. On 3 November 2009 at 22:30 CDT he was waiting in traffic on the James River Freeway, near the Interstate 65 interchange in Springfield, Missouri while the train crossed up ahead, when allegedly a drunk 0.212% BAC driver, age 23, with a D.W.I. pending, rear-ended him at a high speed, killing him.

Obituary
Sadly, the news coverage of this crash has disappeared from the news websites. Some information is in the remaining obituary, and with a free trial subscription to NEWSPAPERS.COM, you can find coverage in the Springfield News-Leader of 24 December 2009 page 2.

A 30-day minimum jail sentence for first offense D.W.I. would have deterred some of the killers shown on this memorial; but the drinking age applies to persons younger than 21 years, while the jail sentence would apply to persons who matter.

Jason F. McCarthy, 16
This boy, an honors student at Champlin Park High School, was waiting in the left-turn lane, facing a red-phase traffic control signal on Highway 252 at 73rd Avenue in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota on 22 July 2014 when a drunk (0.293% BAC) driver, age 24, sped into him. The drunk driver was also driving under revocation, has no insurance, and had just hit another vehicle at 85th Avenue, then sped away, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The double victim died at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale.

Know your enemy: Abolitionists ran into the same problem. The place is overrun with crazy, deranged, depraved, degenerate, selfish, greedy potholes. It is not your job to persuade them because that is impossible while they refuse to shut off their crazy switch, their stupid switch and their wicked switch. It makes no difference how strong your arguments are or how well you prove your case. They don’t give a fire truck. You can’t fix crazy.

These boys were in a Honda Accord on West Appleton Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at 00:30 CDT on 28 October 2006, when a drunk (0.242% BAC) driver sped a Suzuki sport utility vehicle through a red light on West Capitol Drive and killed them and two other persons in the Accord. Witnesses said the impact knocked the Honda into a Chevy Lumina, causing it to flip and land on its roof. A witness suggested the drunk driver should help the victims, and the drunk driver drew a gun and fired toward the witness as the witness ran away. The drunk driver pleaded no contest to three counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle, endangering safety by use of a deadly weapon, disorderly conduct, and resisting or obstructing an officer, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Don’t call the 21 law a stupid law. Enemies of liberty can see the obvious flaws in their absurd excuses. Don’t blame stupidity or even depraved indifference. The 21 law is a calculated, premeditated, malicious attack on your unalienable right to liberty, one of many malicious attacks enforced by the police forces of the hostile government.

Unalienable rights, by definition, supersede the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Liberty is the freedom to do as you wish, as long as you do not violate anybody’s rights. Enemies of liberty want to add four more words, “or break any laws,” to make your unalienable right to liberty nothing more than the freedom to do as you are told: pay taxes, attend school, and register for the draft. Drinking alcoholic beverages under age does not violate anybody’s rights.

Michael Thomas Sot, 20
19 November 1998 - 4 December 2018
This man never got a chance to drink alcoholic beverages lawfully, and abstaining did not keep him safe. He was the designated driver for himself and five other students coming from a Phi Kappa Psi party, returning to The College of New Jersey on 2 December 2018 at approximately 2:00 local time. He was driving a 2007 Dodge Charger along Pennington Road in Ewing Township, New Jersey, when a 2018 Kia Optima crossed the center line and struck them head on. The Kia driver, age 22, was charged with aggravated manslaughter, death by auto and six counts of assault by auto for allegedly recklessly causing Sot’s death. The Kia driver allegedly disregarded the speed limit and was driving while intoxicated when he crossed the center line. He tested 0.239% BAC, and was convicted of assault by automobile and vehicular homicide: reckless driving, but at least he wasn’t drinking under age, or buying for somebody younger than 21 years who drinks alcoholic beverages responsibly, and that is what really matters to the hate-mongering bigots at so-called Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
