Fat Man Fab worker dies.....RIP Fred Brown.

Postby layedout72 » Mon Jul 03, 2006 7:47 pm

From what I am told, Fred Brown from Fat Man Fab has passed away because a dumbass decided to drink and drive. WHY THE HELL DO PEOPLE DO THIS!?!?!?!?!?! From what I am told, he was a partner of the company, but part of it no less. It SUCKS to hear this because he had a pretty slick little s-10 not to mention he was a part of a company that really made good parts from the reputation I have seen on all these other sites.

here is the post with his wifes words on the forum for s10's he was on

Just send them to me. I love to lock the door on them. (I am a jailer after all) I hate drunk drivers. :x :x :x :x :x

i hate drunk drivers. and drivers under the influence of other drugs.

i hate alcohol. everyone my age is obsessed with it. a lot of people my age drive drunk, or stoned. people under the influence of drugs shouldn't be able to drive. if you get caught once i think that you should have your lisence taken away for at least a year.

one of my friends got a DUI, punched a cop in the face, and all they did was suspended his lisence for 3 months. he's back to drinking, and driving again.

another friend of mine got a DUI w/posession of a controled substance, and all he got was 20hrs of community service

take away drunk drivers from the roads and save lives.

she wants him to survive. so he can see just how [censored] up he made her families life. And I would own everything about that person if this were to happen to my family. He wouldnt ever make another dime in his lifetime to use as fun money. You make rent and food and gas, and the rest would be mine. You shouldn't be allowed to have fun once you pull something as stupid as this!

Nothing is a guarantee of perfect safety and especially not driving. I agree with taking drunks off the road but right here where I live, more people get killed from sober people yapping on the cell phone than from drunks. I say cell phones in cars should be outlawed too.
Great ideas have always encounter violent opposition from mediocre minds.

I know that the following thoughts are not popular and politically correct. It is time that each one of us vote for and elect folks to our legislatures and to our Congress to assure that people who drive under the influence, or drive irresponsibly, and cause these things pay for and are made responsible for their deeds. We have folks in high political positions who have done these types of things, yet they still govern! If these things continue then each of us bears the responsibility for not making our voices heard. We are responsible for our actions, as well as for our inactions.


Further, driving is a privilege not a right.

Also i just watched a show where one of the Aurian(german nazi)Nations guys commited a hate crime against an african american, And the local law pled him down to drug charges. And put him on supervised probation/supervision.


Seems to me if you went to court with your drunk driving buddy and asked the Judge for just a minute or two you could perhaps persuade a heavier sentance. You might lkose a freind but next time your friend may crash into you while drunk driving and survive while you die.

I think the DD charges should be far worse than they are personally. I had no contact with either party of this incidient, and didnt know either one bit. It just sucks to lose a fellow mini trucker. Im actually suprised there hasnt been an article bashing that if his truck was stock he could of lived. We (minitruckers) get hated on HEAVY for having lowered trucks and custom cars and stuff.

Anyone dying from DUI incident is tragic and unnecessary. We could stop it.

As far as I can see, our government is the best ever formed in history. We get the government we vote into placed. If you want a particular change to occur, such as stiffer DUI sentences, you can work to get it done. If you are unhappy with an individual (individuals propose and groups then make the laws) you can work to replace him. And then, if enough people agree, it will happen.

I lived in a State once where if you cancelled your insurance, the State was at your door step the next day and removed the tags from your vehicle. No tags, no operation of that vehicle. While not a perfect solution, people (who wanted to drive a vehicle) did carry insurance. Here in AZ, we estimate that about 20% of the vehicles on the road are not insured! How many folks drive on a suspended license, or without a one? How many have extreme DUI's, yet continue to drive even without a license?

Most fatals from DUIs are part of a pattern, these things are not isolated incidents.

To reduce costs, the way we have insurance could be changed. Why do I have to carry a policy for each vehicle I have. Why not a group policy? Why 3 policies for liability? I can only drive one vehicle at a time. Why not insure each driver for his actions so others around are protected?
