Speeding, stop sign, drinking, gambeling, speed, no seat belts– yup- sounds mlike Lafayette kids–the rules do not apply to them

These young men were drinking at Jackson Rancheria? Fake id’s, driver’s licenses??? If this is not a prime example of underage drinking and driving and it’s deadly consequences.

Sad. . .

Sad. Sounds like high speeds and drinking were likely involved. Slow down people!
6 Mad Mom June 3, 2011 at 6:31 PM
So sad. Please…be careful out there and slow down.

My thoughts and prayers are with the familys. The pain they have is more than I hope I ever have.
11 anonamom June 3, 2011 at 7:25 PM
You only have to be 18 to gamble at Jackson Rancheria. They do not serve alcohol! They are out in the boonies, a few miles away from anyplace that does serve alcohol, so if there was drinking involved, they did not get it at Rancheria.
12 anonamom June 3, 2011 at 7:29 PM
George: You win the piss-ant a-hole award.
13 June 3, 2011 at 8:12 PM
Please remember family and friends will read this, My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of these kids, Remember, you were once young too.
14 Beacon June 3, 2011 at 8:14 PM
George – Pull your head out of your ass and start paying attention. It has nothing to do with where they live or what high school they went to. Most young men think they’re invincible. I know I did when I was 18. It’s just that most of us lived to remember the many stupid things we did. It’s a tragedy that these young men didn’t.
15 June 3, 2011 at 8:17 PM
Thanks for that information anonamom. I guess gambling and drinking go hand in hand and these guys decided to find the booze. Just because you arrive at 18 and THINK your an adult doesn’t mean that you ARE an adult. So many adults aren’t even so called adults!!
16 George June 3, 2011 at 8:24 PM
I know many cops that worked in Lafayette, WC, Danville, Orinda & other upper class areas-they told me all about it…the parents gave them cars at 16 & the parents were 100% into their social life & the kids did whatever they wanted..when they leave home– they continue partying, drinking & doing stupid things..Karma is a bitch– deal with it
17 I think June 3, 2011 at 9:12 PM
I think they do serve alcohol. Last time I was there they had a bar next to the burger place. They also served alcohol if you were gambling. I haven’t been therd in about a year but you could get drinks.
So sad for the families.
18 anonamom June 3, 2011 at 9:13 PM
George, add sfb pin head to the awards list.
19 Missy June 3, 2011 at 9:21 PM
George you DUMB ASS, I currently work for the Walnut Creek Police Dept I have been employed there for the past 8 years, I do not appreicate you spreading rumors, no one told you no such thing… Get a life you stupid jack ass…
20 June 3, 2011 at 9:26 PM
This is so sad and it comes after the rafting accident a few months ago that involved 2 Las Lomas students.
21 Renee June 3, 2011 at 10:03 PM
Wow, so sad. Condolences to the families of these young men.
22 Mimi (original) June 3, 2011 at 11:11 PM
Oh no! Oh no! Is this the beginning oh the “senior-itis” tragedies? This recurrent theme is so sad and tragic! My own offspring us a graduating senior and I hold my breath each evening when they don’t arrive home on time. I just want them to survive their graduation celebrations to continue their burgeoning lives. Please, let’s pray for everyone in the class of 2011.
23 quinn June 4, 2011 at 12:19 AM
the DRIVER of the car was 26.
I hope you know your negative attitudes about innocent kids is going to come back to you, and I hope you never have to face this tragedy with your own kids one day, because I bet you won’t too pleased when some ignorant jackass writes on a blog the way you have about these kids.
get a life douchebag.
24 So sad June 4, 2011 at 12:40 AM
This is a terribly tragic occurrence. Three families are forever changed, two young men (and a Lincoln man). My sympathies to all of the families.
25 June 4, 2011 at 7:03 AM
“Please remember family and friends will read this,”
Its a blog people….its their choice to read this.
Also- live fast, play hard….die young
Missy.. it appears you do not work the streets of WC,,,but trust me– the kids there think they are above the law & yes..cops do talk about what goes on with their friends…
26 #1 mommy June 4, 2011 at 9:49 AM
Christian was my boss is son…Nd he used to work with me so sad that he is gone my prayers go out to all the families….:(
27 The Kid June 4, 2011 at 12:40 PM
I knew both these dudes.
For everyone in this world that says things like “everything is meant to be” is so full of bull its rediculous. ANYTHING can happen in this life. be real. dnt waste it
28 Crystal June 4, 2011 at 5:00 PM
my name is Crystal Waters. Maurice Waters is my brother, and is only younger than me by 10 months. Christian Bishop was a very close friend of both of my brothers and he, as well as his family, are near and dear to my family. First of all to that S0B George, those kids were not “Lafayette Kids.” And even if they were they were human beings who belonged to families who love them. Yes, they are too young to be drinking but they were not in control of that car someone else was. Accidents happen and regardless of the situation any loss is a tragic one so haw dare you speak so carelessly abt those kids. I really hope you are not as heartless as you made yourself look and I pray that if/when it is your sibling or loved one that is up for debate, you think about what you’ve posted and how disrespectful it was to me and my family.
29 Connie Dobbs June 4, 2011 at 6:56 PM
Oh, jeez.
I am all ready to take you seriously.
30 Mother June 4, 2011 at 8:19 PM
Condolences for your family. My son knew your brother and Christian and liked them both. They were good kids. Disregard all the stupid comments. Some people just have no compassion.
31 @ George June 4, 2011 at 9:41 PM
“I know many cops that worked in Lafayette, WC, Danville, Orinda & other upper class areas-they told me all about it…”
This is the Appeal To Authority argumentative fallacy…which basically means you claim “to know” some authority figure(s) on a particular subject, as if that somehow lends credence to what you have to say. It doesn’t. It means you’re full of shit.
32 June 4, 2011 at 10:25 PM
#11 Jackson Rancheria does sell alcohol for sure. Yes it is 18 and over casino but they do sell alcohol.
Sad event. Truely I am sorry for the family and friends BUT they are very lucky their stupidity did not kill somone else. When you break the law there are consequences…why you think we have laws so things like this do not happen (if people were respectful enough to obey them). Speeding, drinking, no seat belts three strikes you’re out…sorry. I am sorry for the family really but there are always consequences to your actions.

jess #32,
If you can buy alcohol in that casino I’ll make your car payments for one year.
You really should avoid the X.
35 Crystal June 5, 2011 at 11:57 AM
Thanks @Mother and everyone for your kind words. I am not in any denial that what they were doing was irresposible and dangerous. What I do not like, and I will not be silent about is any attitudes suggesting they deserved death. Death is not something ANYBODY deserves. It is a sad, inevitable part of life. They suffered their consequences in full but never ever say “that’s wat they get.” For those who do not know, Christian Bishop’s funeral will be in Sacramento, CA on Wednesday, June 8th. Maurice’s will be in Union City, CA on Thursday, June 9th. Feel free to contact whomever it may concern for more detailed information
36 Crystal June 5, 2011 at 12:15 PM
I apologize if it seems that I’m negelecting the familes of Kevin M. (The sole survivor) and Chris (the driver whom is also deceased). I did not know them and I have not heard any updates. But my heart goes out to those families.
37 Dobey June 5, 2011 at 6:31 PM
George you’re an ignorant and arrogant idiot. “I know many cops in upper class areas they told me… Blah blah blah”
If anything, the parents are older and more mature and educated in the wealthy areas, not young parents “100% into their social lives”
Stop and observe the tragic loss of two kids and stop being a judgmental piece of sh*t
Despite the circumstance, these were young kids. Boys will be boys, they weren’t criminals, they made bad choice as teenagers do, and it got them killed.
You’re worse than scum on the button of my shoe. Deal with it.
38 Krystal T. June 6, 2011 at 2:28 AM
It’s Krystal (Krissy) from New Hope.
I offer many thousands of condolences and prayers to you and the family right now. Find joy in the fact that Maurice knew The Lord and that he’s in a place you me and everyone else is working toward getting to. Know that one day you will see his face again and that he’s with our Heavenly Father. Love you all. See you all Thursday.
Bless you.
39 Robin June 6, 2011 at 8:56 AM
You are brave and strong to write here, and we all appreciate it. Because we are hurting too at the loss of young men, even if we didn’t know them personally. We know how much it hurts the families and as part of the community, we hurt with you. Anyone with a heart feels for your loss, and your family’s. Don’t waste your time with jerks like George. The people who count are here with you, even if they don’t know you, like me. My daughter knew your brother (she’s a good friend of your other brother) and what I know is that everyone who knew or has heard about this (unlike the “Georges” out there), is terribly sad. We all know at any one point in our lives it couldn’t have happened to us as teens or could happen to our teens. You are right, the non-drivers were not in control of that car. And even the driver didn’t deserve this outcome. No one does. We are all lucky to live past mistakes, only some are not as lucky who don’t. Hold onto the good memories of your brother and his friend and know they’re at peace even though this time is hard for you and your families.

@“I know many cops that worked in Lafayette, WC, Danville, Orinda & other upper class areas-they told me all about it…”
George you are an ignorant bast****! What how much money or lack there of does not make it remotely ok for you to claim that is why this happened, anyone is capable of making a life changing mistake. I am sure you are no saint!. JEALOUSY is not a valid argument in disrespecting the families that lost loved ones. I pity you! My prayers go out to the families of those involed in this crash!
41 Caryl Robinson June 6, 2011 at 10:43 AM
To make heartless and insensitive comments about this tragedy is inexcusable. Maurice was my husband’s second cousin and we have pictures of him and Marquis along with our grandson Darrell a couple of years ago at his grandmother’s home on the 4th of July. Doug will be there on Wednesday. Stay strong Crystal. Our prayers are with you and your family.
42 HowSad June 6, 2011 at 12:19 PM
What a sad tragedy. I’m so sorry! My deepest condolences to all the families and friends. So Sorry!
As for the comments about “UPPER class” areas. It’s too bad people think that way, it just divides us further. I have known nasty crooked people who are both rich and poor. There are “Upper class” people in ALL areas where we live and breath. Material wealth and geographic area have nothing to do with being classy. Attitude makes us classy.
43 Crystal June 6, 2011 at 1:21 PM
Thanks again everybody for the kind words and support. Hey to Krissy and aunty out there, see u guys soon. Today I just wanted to post that the students of Las Lomas H.S. are going to have a candlelight ceremony for Christian and Maurice tomorrow evening at the school I believe. (Will update). In that time we will not only remember Christian and Maurice, but the 2 fallen Knights who were lost recently in a rafting accident, and the dearly missed Knight who was murdered by his mother on Mt. Diablo last year. All are definately welcome to join.
44 Crystal June 7, 2011 at 6:12 PM
Candlelight ceremony will commence 8pm and Walnut Heights School T0NIGHT
45 Nanette June 8, 2011 at 11:58 AM
Love you so much Crystal, this is Nanette from NHBC. Quinton’s mom. I will be there along with my mother sister Davis tonight. God bless you and your mother. All me and my mom could say was all three of you were always smiling and your mom loves you all and it always showed. Maurice was one of my students in my vacation bible school class so funny and always gave me hugs. God Bless.
