Back on June 15, 2013, a sixteen-year-old Ethan Couch and some of his friends stole beer from a local Wal-Mart; they drank it all and then, with Couch behind the wheel, began driving around.
That same night Breanna Mitchell was driving home and her car broke down. Brian Jennings, a youth pastor, was driving by and stopped to help, as Breanna was calling a friend, Shelby Boyles, and her mother, Hollie, to come get her.
A drunken Ethan Couch plowed into the four of them, killing them, all; several others suffered severe injuries, including two passengers thrown from the bed of Couch's truck. Two of Ethan Couch's friends were critically injured; one was paralyzed for life. And three hours ... three hours ... after the crash a Breathalyzer test showed that Ethan Couch’s blood alcohol level was 0.24, nearly three times the legal limit.
Ethan Couch went on trial for the killing of four people with his car — though not for injuring and paralyzing his friends — and the judge in the case, Judge Jean Boyd [left], whom I must believe was paid off in some way, listened to the defense argument that Ethan Couch suffered from “affluenza.”
Yes, he was too rich, too spoiled, too unsupervised, to know that drinking a case of beer and then driving a car was wrong, and so Judge Boyd sentenced him to ten years … probation.
He killed four people, and injured three others, and he got probation; oh, and he never once, before the trial, during the trial, or after the trial, apologized to the families of the people he killed. He simply went back home.
Now two years later, and after a video turns up on social media showing Ethan Couch at a party playing beer pong — part of the child’s sentence was that he not drink at all — Ethan Couch has vanished, violating his parole.
And rumor has it that his mother, Tonya Couch, the woman who couldn't be bothered to parent her own son so that he grew up knowing that drinking and driving was wrong, or that if you kill four people you might wanna express some remorse, helped Ethan Couch flee. And, if found, and I so hope to the universe he and that mother are found, now, finally, Ethan Couch may actually have to go to jail for ten years; not for killing four innocent people, but for running away, mind you.
A warrant has been issued for Couch, and his idiot mother, with now both the FBI and U.S. Marshals joining local authorities to hunt Ethan and his mommy down. A $5,000 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of Couch.
But Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson is worried that Mommy and Son have left the country, since they have the means to do so, and a little bit of a head start. But Ethan Couch, even while on probation, loved his social media, and loved posting his picture online, so there is the hope that this little mother—boy will be caught and punished; and this time punished hard.
So, if anyone who reads this, anywhere in the world, happens to come across Ethan Couch, that little bastard, that murdering little prick, and Tonya Couch, that miserable excuse for a mother ... and that's the ugly duo up there at the top ... do the right thing: call the authorities and make Ethan pay for killing people, and make his mother pay for being a horrible excuse for a parent.
