And people there knew he had at least 6 drinks, so I'm sure they knew he was over the limit. If he snuck out without their noticing? Fine, they did all they could.
I can't remember where, but I read a quote from people who were there saying that they knew what he had and he wasn't too drunk to drive. That makes me very, VERY angry.
I quoted the friend upthread from TMZ. 3 beers and 3 shots and they guy said he knew/thought Dunn was not impaired.
Ok, not sure how it was REALLY worded, but TMZ is reporting on Kings of Leon's tribute to Ryan Dunn during a concert. Supposedly they asked the crowd to make a toast to Ryan... Hello?!? A toast? And I think that public tributes to someone without mention of the other person who died at the same time are tacky, tacky, tacky. Not to mention how it digusts me that tributes are being paid to a drunk driver who killed another person...
They dedicated a song to him (McFearless) and images of him played on the big screen.
Seemed in poor taste to me, especially the title of the song.
They are going to cannonize the guy in their minds, celebrate him as if he were fearless?
Well of course they are. The show he produced glorified stupidity and reckless behavior, to me it is no surprize there are people out there who are going to think he's fabulous no matter what. They will cuss out and harass someone who Tweeted negatively because they did nothing to stop their hero. They will never look at themselves or their own actions or how egging Dunn contributed to his escalating behavior. They'll shake their angry fists at cruel fate and never think about all the steps Dunn took in life that led him to this end.
Then again, it's this very attitude that made those around him not do anything at all to curtail the behavior that got him killed.
There is a complete disconnect in their minds with cause and effect. They'll never say what we are saying. He was out of control (in the worst, most derogatory sense,) there was nothing great about what he did that night or any other time and it was shameful that he continually lived his life in a way that showed a complete disdain for the safety of others.
One can hope some of them wake up and think about how they are living their lives. Who knows, I just hope like h3ll I nor anyone else is on the road when they are being McFearless.
