    It's a crying shame that I have to read a message board to find out about this story. I'll bet if we was arrested with a crack pipe it would be on every 30 minutes on ESPN News! My heart goes out to the victim, his family, and Cam.

    Ditto! Although the young man involved died, that doesn't make it any less heroic what Cam did. I dare say the majority of folks would drive right by, or at most call 911. How many of us would risk life and limb to help a stranger. That car could have blown up or Cam could have been badly hurt another way. I will say a special prayer for him tonight. As to the media, you really hit the nail on the head. Had he been arrested, it would be on every newscast all day long. :bag:

    Thats because they always like to tell you the bad things people do but hardly praise the good. Its just how the media is.
