Cant believe theyre making a summer plot out of a story that we thought was over 2 years ago


As we revisit the horrific events of June 7 2016, we’re reminded that the impact Del made didnt kill Boo Radley, it was the 2nd collision by the other driver that proved to be fatal. We never heard who this driver was, his/her name, and where he /she is as far as prison location or legal charges. But Del was more involved in the comic strip, so he’s stuck in jail 2 years later for what in hindsight is an accident that only involved him marginally. Clearly the 2nd driver killed Boo, and there’s no way Del should still be in the clink for this. Suspend his license, make him go to driver school, and pass a probation time of around 6- 10 months before he can re-apply for his license. I dont know the laws specifically, but that sounds about right. And meanwhile the real ‘killer’ is somewhere else and if Dafne was a real journalist it would be THIS person she should be interviewing in jail, because theyre the ones that need to be in jail. And that story would Definitely be appropriate for the school paper as there are still plenty of students there who either knew Boo or were attending the school when the accident happened. If Dafne’s slant is that Del is in jail unfairly, fine, but bacause he’s a dad of one of the students it really shouldnt be in the school paper unless the entire Bader family approved of it.

But I guess anything that keeps us from seeing Pelwecki and his pursuit of college way later then he should’ve started, is a better alternative.

P2 – Do Not …. what? Chime in with your ideas. I say ..Enter. I still dont know what DOC means.




  1. I know others have commented that the other driver ultimately killed Boo but unless I’m forgetting some comic strip details Del was drunk and he caused the crash. I don’t see how the other driver could do any time. Del is debatable. I know one thing. Looking at that watchtower, this is Dels chance to escape. Looks empty.

  2. For DOC, let’s go with Department Of Corrections.

  3. Sorry, robmize, but I disagree completely. Del, driving drunk and without lights, t-boned the kid who had pulled out of the shitty-mart and who could not possibly have seen him coming. Another driver– and we do not know from which direction or from what distance– crashed into the aftermath. The third driver was supposedly distracted by fumbling for a CD. I wasn’t there, but the court found Delberto 100% to blame.

    The present matter, as I see it, is that Bader is trying to traffic on the fact that his victim was young and well liked rather than an anonymous nobody. Sorry, gang, but as we said as kids, “That shit don’t flush with me.”

  4. I did not attend law school, so take this with the biggest grain of salt you can find. In Colorado (and possibly other states), there is a law (Title 18, Criminal Code 18-3-06) which says “If a person operates or drives a motor vehicle in a reckless manner, and such conduct is the proximate cause of the death of another, such person commits vehicular homicide”. Again, I am not an attorney, but Del’s actions seem to meet the proximate cause standard. In the Thorpiverse, this is close enough.

  5. As someone who is closer to 50 than 18, and whose name IRL is almost as generic as Joe Smith, I take umbrage with Del’s remark.
