CNN has posted a full story on the fatal crash of Charlotte Hornets player Bobby Phills. It seems he and fellow player David Wesley were out racing their Porsches on a public road in traffic when the accident occured. They were travelling at least 30 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. Phills sent passengers in two other vehicles to the hospital. The article quotes team officials as saying “[Bobby was a] role model that everyone respected and admired. He was someone that you would want your children to be like.” and “He had extreme high character. A family man. If there’s a person you would want to your children to be, a role model, it’s Bobby Phills.” I’m sorry, but I don’t want my children to risk the lives of strangers in the pursuit of some selfish thrill. And a family man wouldn’t thoughtlessly make his children grow up without a father. Cars are not toys, not even shiny new Porsches. They can hurt and kill.
