Atlanta teen kills woman while text-messaging her suicide by car

A 16-year-old girl counted down her suicide attempt through text messages to a female classmate who had rebuffed her sexual advances before crashing her vehicle into an oncoming car, killing a mother of three and injuring the victim's 6-year-old daughter.

Poor little rich girl doesn't get her way: "Waaah, poor me. My life is so full of angst! No one can know the endless sorrow I must endure every day as I go to a nice, sheltered private school and drive myself around in a stupid Mercedes instead of a (sob) Ferrari like the popular girls." So she takes the Mercedes out & texts her pals with suicide threats. She even 'attempts suicide' by driving headlong into oncoming traffic. Failing that, she does manage to kill some poor woman just driving along, minding her own business.

OK, teen-agers do stupid things. Some teen-agers have killed themselves and others by getting drunk and accidentally smacking some poor schmuck who is just driving along, minding his business. heck, adults even do that.

But it takes a truly special kind of self-centered, unthinking, uncaring and monstrous little brat to intentionally drive into another person, knowing full well and even hoping that someone would die in the crash. I don't even want to hear some lawyer claim, in coming weeks, that "Well, the truth is she didn't intend to hit the other car but simply lost control because she was busy fussing with the phone instead of driving. So really it's just sort of a misdemeanor oopsie."

No. I won't hear it.

I hope she gets the 'book' thrown at her! Three young children now have to live their lives without their wrong.

But if the courts there are like ours here...she will just get a rap over the knuckles. The law stinks!
