      Remember being sent to Germany in the early eighties. They have the autobahn hwy there. Soldiers were killed in auto accidents often, cus it does take some adjusting too. Finally when new arivals landed in country, they were shown what happens to cars after high speed crashes. It actually saved lives, maybe my own. I know the family need time to grieve, but if I could save 1 life by somone viewing my wrecked and totaled car, then least its not a total loss.

    My son was 16 yrs old Donald Hemker from Bolivar Tn that was killed in a car wreck on 10/28/2013. The media did everything they could to get a picture of the car. If I had wanted to see the car , I would have looked at on the tow truck that we met going down the road 5 mins after seeing my son for the last time ever. I never saw the vehicle . The tow company made sure nobody got to the vehicle and when insurance was done had the vehicle shredded. I know the media is about getting a story, but nobodies family wants to see that. It is hard enough to have lost a loved one in such a tragic way. If it was your wife , husband , child or etc. You would not want to see it either. Please give the family etc the respect that is deserved in such a tragic time. I am not saying this channel has posted any pic of this famous person auto. I am hoping that yall will not.
