B-Double E-Double R-U-NBeer Run!Cooler's in the back, he was thirsty.
Up until around the age of 25, the male human is just about the dumbest creature on the planet...
Just a guess, but looking at that picture, it looks like the "climbing-in-the-window" thing might not have been the dumbest decision this guy ever made...
I cannot believe you would put this up for him to be ridiculed. He is a good kid who had a terrible accident because of a bad decision. He does not deserve to be ridiculed here while we are all praying for his life! Shame on you! Truly shows your lack of compassion, Barry, for a lot of people who have dealt with massive loss these last few months.
All Barry did was link to the story and the kids Facebook page. Both which are public information. That kid is the one who chose to make the bad decision that ended him up in the messenger and that kid is the one who chose to post that ridiculous picture.
1:06, "that kid" has many more pictures on fb that could have been chosen. Barry is not a kid, and as a "responsible" adult he should have more sense and compassion. But then that word "responsible" doesn't always apply to Barry, now does it. Think about your own kid's "silly" picture here -- set up to be ridiculed while fighting for life in ICU. My last comment here: This young man is a good guy who is probably not much different in his partying than most other 20 year olds. He, his family, and his community do not deserve to be put through more emotional distress than they are already experiencing.
Is this the kid?Let's hope so.
Good kid? All pictures I see have to do with alcohol. I'm sure this happend because of alchohol. Yep. Good kid in my book.
True 1:06 Barry only posted the story. I found his fb page too. The family needs to close it because it is public. Anyway, this guy apparently has a death wish mental problem...he put a video of himself on his fb page..he sucked up lighter fluid into his mouth and blue it into a fire pit...how dumb can you get. Cannot have any sympathy for someone who pulls such stunts. But, all of Alvord will be boo hooing over this..he is not a teenager and he lives in Denton.
1:06You forgot to add-he is the one who has his Facebook settings open enough for strangers to access his pictures...I know the kid and his family. He's a sweetheart, and I'm devastated that this happened to him. I wish he had not made a choice that put his friends and family in such pain.
The clinical term for this is: Natural Selection...
He's 20. Is that a red solo cup next to him? Is that a beer bottle in that half-naked girl's hand? Yeah, I would say that climbing in and out of the window of a moving vehicle wasn't his first bad choice. No matter how many times tragedy strikes, kids just can't seem to understand that stupid actions often have dire consequences. Young people under 23 are a lost generation.
I do not know the kid. However,I have kids who are his age. Barry, you are a JERK for attempting to incite obnoxious comments based on the photo. Some day your stepdaughters will do the same & somebody will post their photos on a blog. Now THAT will be funny. Grow a conscience.
Momma always says "Stupid is as stupid does". That's all I have to say about that.DF Forrest Gump
As usual you are an idiot that thrives on the pain of others. When your family member is one pray there is not some inconsiderate asshole that will post crap about your family. You really need to learn to have some compassion for those in pain. Your day will come post this don't post this but just remember it could be one of yours. Then I hope you get to be the one reading all the nasty hateful hurtful comments about your loved one!!!!!
Barry posts a picture of a guy who did something stupid, and all of a sudden he's a a-hole? I don't get it.
Karma's a bitch, Barry. You really are insensitive here.
Wouldn't we all love to get some pics of Barry when he was a college kid. I am pretty sure he was not an angel. I mean look what he defends and puts back on the streets. His day will come. You better lock up your kids facebook because I'm sure they will not be the little angels you think they are. Then what will you do when people are talking shit about them I'm sure the Mrs. is real proud of you. She must have been desperate to marry someone like you to raise her children. Because it is obivious you don't give a shit about anyone elses! Kudos to you Mrs.Green. I feel for your kids. I'd keep a close eye on his ass.
4:05 has the win on this one, lets hope he recovers and learns from this mistake.
This is why the world is the way it is. People have lost all respect for others. He has no concept of what compassion means. I'm sure his family is very proud of him. If you were my child being so disrespectful to those in pain I would disown you. I tought my kids better, and they chose to follow the golden rule, to bad your parents did not, or you chose just to be an ass and not listen to what is right.
I know I'm lucky to have lived through some of my stunts when I was in my teens and 20s. I'd be willing to bet that everyone on this blog knows they are lucky to have lived through their own stunts at that age also, Barry Green included. Trevor is in ICU, in a medically induced coma. His skull is fractured and his brain is swelling and bleeding. He is a kid. Yes. A kid who made a poor choice. He does not deserve a death sentence for that. He does not deserve public ridicule for that. He does not deserve anything but prayers for his life right now! Those of you who do not know him should not comment here at all. Shame on you. The fact that Barry picked this picture taken at a costume party to entice public ridicule of a kid he has absolutely no knowledge of is not only insensitive and irresponsible, but is about as low as an adult can go, especially when he knows (and has friends on his fb page) of so many in Alvord who are suffering the loss of their kids. That said, I'll tell you that Trevor Hartfield (20 yrs old) would never do to anyone what Barry Green (50something) is doing here. He' a much more sensitive and bigger person than that!
What is wrong with people? I just saw an advertisement from Kelly photography with pictures of people on the railroad tracks! We have had enough kids killed in Alvord without this total lack of taste towards our children. I will never use this company after such a picture in poor taste was even distributed. This is a slap in the face to Alvord teens killed by Union Pacific and BNSF
Trevor is a very kind, fun, caring, full spirited young man who likes to party. Yes, he is a "good kid" but he also likes to have a good time. Everyone knows that. Do you really think he would be upset with a photo of himself next to a hot girl being publicized? I don't think so. Just about every photo you see him in, he is being goofy, fun, full of laughter in some way. He lives each and everyday to the fullest and full of fun. And he is a caring loving young man. The sad part is is that I am describing alot of young teens / young adults in Alvord. Alvord has a big alcohol (party) problem among it's students past and present and sadly in alot of cases, it is being condoned by many parents. I think that rather than everyone getting all upset over what photo has been posted, it would be nice for our community to face the facts and try to do something to prevent a tragedy like this from happening again. I am really surprised that we have not had more incidents. It is sad because we have so few older students for our younger kids to look up to. It is my prayer that Trevor will make a full recovery and it is also my prayer that reflection to come from this and that lives will be changed and that Trevor will be able to share with future students about the effects of choices and that you can still be the life of the party without the need of alcohol or drugs. Trevor is loved by so many and so many prayers are being lifted up his way. God Speed your recovery!!!
Barry if you have one ounce of a concience you would remove this post. If you choose not to then we know where you stand. I for one will be one to make sure your services as an attorney will never be referred. I hope you end up being a probono lawyer forever. And you end up living in a trailer park in Newark with the rest of your drunk and drug dealing clients. You make me sick!!!
I'm 70 years old and I'm damned lucky to be alive. I was in the military for six years longer than this kid's been alive. I hit every hot spot from Vietnam - three times - to the Middle east voluntarily -- and I'd do it all again if I had half a chance.Get off the kids ass. If he learns, fine... if not, oh well.And get off Green's ass. If you act like an idiot you better expect to have your name up in lights along with the designation you so painfully earned. Geeze whadda bunch of Wusses!
I think in this case yes Barry Boy was insensitive but his point was different than what it's being took as. If you haven't noticed Barry posts scantly dressed women. I'm pretty sure this pic while highlighting a story was more about the blonde in her panties sporting a brewskie on Trevor's arm. And to be honest knowing Trevor as I do I know he would feel like a "rock star " having this pic on here. Say a prayer for him and his family because that's the best way to show your support right now not attacking a blog for showly skimpy dressed woman
I don't understand some of you. The story is tragic. But, there is nothing really wrong with the photo. It's of a young man with a cute girl, having what appears to be a great time. I wish I had more photos like that of my younger years. It's not really even embarrassing. Silly perhaps, but not any different than a picture that might be taken of any young adult.Story + Innocuous Photo = HarmlessThe problem is the conclusions and judgment that come from you people. Almost all 20 year olds have photos like that. You act as if the photo itself is some sort of indictment on a person's life. I have no personal knowledge of this young man's situation...and from the photo...neither do you.
He's not a kid. He's 20 years old and is responsible for his own actions.
Social media at its finest.
THE REST OF US SHOULD HAVE A LEARNING MOMENT BECAUSE OF HIS ACTIONS CHEF
I truly hope this kid make s full recovery. Horrible thing resulting from a questionable decision(s). Now, for those you screaming that you want the story taken down. You obviously know about this blog and that means you read it - often. I'm sure you have no problem reading about these sorts of things when it is in someone else's backyard. I never see one post about insensitivity when it is about someone in Dallas. All is fair in love and Wise County people. Just like Alvord - ya'll won't pass the alcohol bill because it's bad for the community, but you have no problem buying it in Decatur, Bridgeport, or Bowie.
This is Obama's fault.
Prayers for the young man and his family.I don't know about all of Wise County, but Bridgeport has a huge problem with underage drinking. Our parents and schools will hopefully take action to better educate our young adults of the risks associated with it.Most concerning is that many of our teens are drinking and using drugs and sadly many parents know it and take no action or responsibility.
he has always been a hot shot, showing off, i hope other kids will see that all it takes is one screw up and your life is over as you knew it, he is very lucky not to have to live life with a broken neck, i pray he gets well and others learn a valuable lesson..it could have been my son, or yours.
For those of you who are upset-go on Facebook and look for the pages of every kid you can think of. If their pages are open, look at their pics. See who you need to have a heart-to-heart conversation with. If noting else, ask them if they want their pics up as a subject of discussion on some blog after they do something stupid. Ask if they want to put their family/friends through the misery of, not only dealing with their stupidity, but having strangers use them for entertainment.Coming on here and complaining isn't going to make one bit of difference. Why don't you go do something that will make a difference...
i wonder how many race comments have not been posted?
Off the topic but in reply to 9:33, so BNSF and Union Pacific has killed the two young people in Alvord. One who was trespassing on their propert and walking dow the tracks and the other who commited suicide by walking in front of a train. Next you will say that TX DOT and car manufactures are to blame for the other teen deaths from the area. YOU NEED TO GET A CLUE. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK BARRY!!!
Lay off of Barry. Messenger put the story up too..only thing you have to post with your name tagged on. Here we can say what we really think..it is called freedom of speach...and the 20 yr old had a choice saturday night...act safely or an idiot...just saying!And, I told you the Alvord folks would start screaming about another tragedy. If parents are condoning drinking..then find out who they are and turn them in..it is against the law to provide liquor to minors...if you don't you are harboring a criminal...there is your choice..are you a responsible adult?
If you complainers have young kids you better hope there will always be Barry Greens...it is a terrible experience when they are jailed..one I would not wish on my worst enemy...leave Barry alone..all he did was post about the story...heck I found the guy's fb page myself and found worse posts on it than Barry did.
@ 9:33. People have been taking pictures on the tracks for years. I think you are making a big deal out of something that was never intended to be disrespectful.
Buy your beer at the Rhome loves and get a free hooker. Don't support Bridgeport.
8:27 - You need to double your facts there, hoss.
You all need a life and need to worry about your families before you judge others!
8:27: Please check your facts before typing inaccurate ones.
does any one know his condition now?
Not judging..only God does that...just chiming in...the truth hurts sometimes.
Well don't worry, I'm sure he won't stiff taxpayers out of his medical bill (which is over 100K ALREADY). And I'm even more sure once he gets out of the hospital he's going to continue to be a productive member of society and will in fact cure cancer or somethin'.
Holy cal! Why is everyone giving Barry so much crap on here? This story is public information that was in the newspaper and on the messengers website so EVERYONE to see. In no way possible is Barry ridiculing Trevor. I know the kid. We are the same age. And yes, he is stupid but hes a nice guy. Majority of college kids are are beyond stupid. But Barry is doing nothing wrong whatsoever here. He never said anything bad about the kid. He is an attorney. Im sure he is fully aware of what he can post and what he cannot post so quit giving him hell. Trevor is a 20 year old man. It sucks that is happened but he shouldnt have been so stupid. Keep up the good work Barry.
Wow. Seriously? This is exactly what's wrong with the world, much less Wise County. Too many people are worried about the mistakes someone makes in their life and judging them off of those and other things they see. Not only is this boy's family suffering right now from this devestating accident, but so is he. So sad how other people can sit here and write absurd comments on here when they most likely don't even know the guy. Half of you are so quick to judge, that you are as hypocritical as hypocrites get. This boy and his family are in need of prayer, and yet Wise County and the people in it are going to put him down and judge him and put up pictures of him just being a college kid and having fun on here to make it look like he's a bad guy. That is pathetic. You people have no right or decency. I'd love to know how many of you have had a perfect life because I'm sure half of you commenting and saying that this is right, have had some of your own fun in your young adult years..so your just making yourself look stupid by sitting here, chiming in with your rude remarks when you also don't even know the boy. Just because he's a young adult and has had fun and not made the smartest decisions doesn't make him a bad person. Instead of judging him, you should be praying and hoping that he would learn from this. I would think someone is a bad person if they were to sit here like half of you and say the things you are saying and being as judgemental as you are when you have no right at all..I pray you people realize how wrong you are acting.
Come on people! Think about what could happen if we all got off this blog and prayed for Trevor's healing.
People will always say stupid is stupid as long as people do stupid things...fact of life...not judging. BTW according to his mother's fb page he is out of the coma..so far so good..at JPS in Ft Worth...see open records...Barry does not tell everything.
I don't have to get off this blog and pray. It wouldn't help anyway. I'm atheist.
I prayed last night before I went to bed that the sun would come up today. And guess what? It did! See, prayer works!+1 for 4:16And all this crap about judging people... Get off your high horses and gather some common sense. Everybody judges. All the time. I feel sorry for the outcome of this young mans' actions. It won't stop me from using it as a teaching tool for other kids I know as to the effect of poor decisions.I do hope he recovers, but I will not rely on an unseen deity to get him there. Credit the training and knowledge of the hospital staff and his will to live. Nothing more, nothing less.
4:16 That's okay..praying does not stop what is to be..I'm christain.
5:01I don't get it then. If praying doesn't stop what is to be, then what does it do? It certainly doesn't alter what isn't to be either. Reminds me of the phrase I read the other day... "I prayed and prayed for god to give me a bike. Then I realized god doesn't work that way, so I stole one and then asked for forgiveness."So, as I have previously posted on here, prayer is a large waste of time, because it does not change anything. Instead of giving all your money to the ministers, lets donate that money to schools and teachers, so we can have better educated kids in the future.
looks like a fun loving young man to me. nothing to make fun of to me. at least he appears not to be gay. As if none of us ever did any bonehead things growing up. we were just luckier than him. well maybe not if he survives he will have one hell of a stroy to his grand kids. we all do dumb things when we are young. I don't see where B.G. is being insenstive hell the kid is probaly proud of that photo. nice looking gil by the way. So get off Barry's ass , you have the option not to read this blog but you do becuase you like it, So get off your high horses.
5:01---Did you go to a christain school? Cause I heard they teach spelling more better at christian schools
Too all of you Wise County bashers and move-ins:Wise County is what it is. Don't like it?Then leave! And don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!
Wake up Alvord and parent your kids instead of letting Johnny Knoxville do it for you.
5:33 Praying keeps you closer to the power of God to give you strength for his will...when bad things happen wait for the blessing to follow.
I hope and pray Trevor will recover. My son made a "bad decision" nine years ago and got on a motorcycle after drinking. And he is dead.
The bible says that as human beings and christians it is not our place to judge and that we should show sympathy and compassion to other humans no matter what the situation. To those of you claiming to be christian and still sit and judge this young man for his decision maybe you should pay more attention during bible study.
Regardless of the decision Trevor made--the consequences of which will follow him for the rest of his life, provided his condition continues to improve and his life is not already all but over--the posting of this photo & subsequent comments are in the poorest possible taste. His mother is a far better person than I am for continuing to champion your blog, Mr. Green. And the rest of you & your insensitivity are astonishing. Heaven forbid any of you should find your own children on life support after such an event, and then see him publicly ridiculed over a picture of a Hallowe'en costume!
Wow you should read the statement his mom made on her fb page. She think Barry's blog is great and values other's opinions.
Yep damn trains! You never know where they are gonna strike next. Oh only if those damn trains had their own roadways with barriers, and whistles or sirens and lights; maybe then these tragedies may be avoided...oh wait they have all those things. My bad.
5;33, we all know they dont derail.
Trevor is a fun loving outgoing kid. 20 maybe of legal age to be an adult, but really how many of us were actually grown ups at 20! So he has fun, thats what kids that age do. At least he is in college!! He is a great kid. I do know him and his family personally and have for many years! He comes from a great family in Alvord. He was in the class of 2010 so alot of people from Alvord know and love him. Please be respectful in that regards when posting on here. Yes it is another Alvord tragedy. There are alot of people pointing fingers at Alvord for these tragedies. I dont understand that at all. What happened to the compassion? Where is the prayer needed for Trevor and the rest of our families that have suffered such tragedies. Trevor is just a kid who made a bad decision. He is paying for it dearly right now too. He is fighting for his life. Its probably going to be a long road for him too. You all had better hope your kids never make that split second decision that ends up like this. You all need to stop and think about what you say before you post it on here. And think about if it was your child and you were in his parents shoes. Good kids make bad decisions too. Trevor, his family, community, friends, everyone is in my prayers.
