    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Dunce’s Corner: Robert Todd Harrell of 3 Doors Down charged with vehicular homicide after allegedly driving under the influence & speeding and killing Paul Howard Shoulders Jr.

Harrell crash

This is not Robert Todd Harrell’s first DUI. He had one last year as well. Plus, this time, he is charged with taking contraband into the jail (drugs). Not smart. A man, Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., lost his life in this incident and he needs to be remembered in all of this. Just because the person arrested and charged is a well known celebrity does not make him matter more. It makes him matter less. Remember Paul Howard Shoulders Jr.

Update: Robert Todd Harrell has bonded out of jail.
