I just got off the phone with my aunt. It's been over a year since my cousin died and today was the pre trial hearing. apparently the young man who got wasted and then ran a red light and plowed over my cousin doesn't believe he's done anything wrong. He's pleading not guilty

I'm most angry that now my cousin's poor boyfriend will have to testify. He was in the car behind her and saw everything. I'd really like to be angry and get it out of my system but I can't. The worst of it is that if he had just pled guilty everyone in my family would have gladly agreed to any sort of plea deal, no matter how lenient, just to have some closure.

Likely as not the press will turn up and I'm probably going to be the designated paparazzi wrangler. If he'd pled 'no contest' at least I wouldn't have such a hard time behaving myself. As it is I'm going to have to bite off my tongue to keep from telling the media I'd like to run him through with my favorite sword.

He's 19 years old and before today I thought of him as selfish and stupid. Now I have to think of him as cruel and heartless as well. He was driving on a suspended license. He'd had 2 prior drunk driving arrests and he was well over the legal limit that night. He lied to investigators and the prosecution has a long laundry list of witnesses to prove the facts. He, apparently, has a number of people from his parents church who are going to talk about what a nice boy he is. I guess in his mind that makes up for all the pain he's caused.

It's times like these when I lose faith in humanity
