R.I.P. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.

    Gandee and the others were last seen at a bar at 3 a.m. telling others they were going driving off road. They were found in the wrecked vehicle in a ditch.

    I was reading a CNN article at about Shain Gandee’s passing and, to no surprise, the liberals were out in force mocking his death with classist “redneck, hillbilly” type posts. Liberals are such disgusting people.

      Liberals are trash… they are the flies that hover over dog poo

    • Christian Orpinell

      CNN still gets traffic? Oh yeah, by liberals. You know why Fox News doesn’t have the option to comment anymore? Liberals.

      • Ntr

        The immature minds of liberals hardly know how to behave and be respectable. They never can stay or topics or keep from being overly insulting.

        As the phrase goes, “this is why we can’t have nice things.”

          I was literally about to say that phrase.

    I only saw the trailer to the show, so I’ve never watched the show. It appeared to be young kids drinking and having sex living life like it was an episode of “jackass.” If that’s true, where tragic and sad….predictable.

    Thoughts and prayers to the loved ones that lost.

    We glorify this type of behavior, and then act shocked when something like this happens?? Seriously people, what do you think will happen when boozing and drugging are glorified in mainstream media?

    With the type of “values” society peddles, I fear for my infant son. I’ll tell you one thing though, he will NOT be allowed to watch trash television…at any age.

    Sad story. Such a young kid. Unfortunately some types of “fun” have consequences. And his family will now have to live with his loss.

    OMG…Snooki died? (Never mind, wrong show) I’m embarrassed that I even took the time to post a comment.

  • Adam Johnson

    Never heard of him, never seen the show, but you always hate to hear about someone that young dying. I have daughters older than him. Sad.

    No surprise. Nature works within the Darwinian model again.
