    My condolences go out to the family for the loss of the child. I hope Mr. Tutt gets the book thrown at him. Your horrible decisions led to the death of an innocent child. May you wallow in grief for the remainder of your days.

    When are we going to do the good that the government doesn’t do?? Do we realize we are assisting the government with our death, they are using this alcohol to belittle us and dumb as down in society. I am SO tired of hearing death because of alcohol and now its a childs death, when is enough goin to be enough america ????? When are we going to stop being afriad and low and when are we going to unite and take back our country? This alcohol has got to go!!!! Something needs to be done. Don’t sit around and wait for your government to do something cause that will never happen. Open your eyes people, do you not see what alcohol does to our people ???????

    I work with her mom at the Patent and Trademark Office and she is such a beautiful person with a big laugh…she loved her daughter so very much and this news just devastated me. I am praying for her and her family! Please Justice be served on Jackson Tutt and dont let him get house arrest or probation becasue of his age. He should have to rot away the rest of his days and think about his desicion to drive drunk and KILL! That maybe why he still living!!

    I think all vehicles should have a brethalizer device installed and unless you pass that your car will not start. That seems to be the only way to keep these stupid drunk drivers off our roadway! My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the litte girl and the other INNOCENT people injured! I hope Mr. Tutt gets punished to the full extent of the law!

      That will not do anything Ive heard a bunch of stories about losers with Breathalyzer** in their cars after DUI they just have a friend ride with them and breath into the machine for them. They need to invent something that has a camera in the crap! This man needs to be put away for life. RIP Jan-nae may your family find peace, praying for your mothers recovery and that justice is served!!

        Wow someone is a spelling nazi. It was an idea and yeah a “friend” could blow into it (if they haven’t been drinking) but if it was a TRUE friend they would just drive the drunk one!

    Who do you blame when a life is taken by a drunk driver the people who makes the alcohol?(1) The people who sales the alcohol(2) or the people who drink the alcohol?:

    • Linda on June 28, 2012 at 4:16 pm

      In answer to the question posed, the person to blame is the one who injests the alcohol and causes the accident. It was their decision to drink. There is a time and a place for everything. No matter what you do in life you are responsible for your own actions.

    Dd is a world-wide problem. I believe alcohol will be used n around fora long time. I think a low-cost mode of transportation that is more recreation oriented would greatly reduce the # of intoxicated drivers on the road. Is the expense worth it? What’s the value to a life saved? In my drinking days, if I coulda got a ride, without asking someone, to the bar n backn not to far to walk home I’d have used it alot. I dont believe people set out to drnkndrive but it happens too much everyday. Not a sermon just a thought. Prayers to all families involved in this tradgety.

    So happy to learn that Ja’Nae, her mother, and their family will receive justice!! Ja’Nae was a former student of mine. She was a bright, happy and vivacious child with a future filled with so much promise! It breaks my heart that her life was cut short by the irresponsible actions of another person.
