  • disappointed in todays youth

    firs a young life lost to underage drinking and nothing hppens,now a careless driver lets someone car surf while she drives ,and hes gone forever.wake up people!!

    • inkslinger

      wow you know that they were drinking from that little bit of news,

      • disappointed in todays youth

        I never once said there was drinking involved in this. I was making a comparison to the underage drinking incident a few months ago which caused a young girls death.

        • You never mentioned drinking, but you did mention SHE let him CAR SURF while SHE drove. None of that information is actually in the article. It says “an individual who had fallen from a moving vehicle” and ” Schreurs reportedly fell from a moving vehicle”. Sounds like you either know something or you are ASSuming. Just sayin’…..

          • Haysite

            Who was driving? Tell us more!

          • disappointed in todays youth

            your right I do know through some of his friends so o its not in the article but will be eventually.wish I was wrong,but, its time to start holding these kids responsible for their actions.and I wont give her name but shes young and has kids she sould of been thinking of

          • ooh lala

            The person driving does not have children. Don’t speak unless you know the truth. k thanks

      • disappointed in todays youth

        read again it was a comparison to an incident awhile back

      • Frank

        The man who died on the 4 wheeler had been drinking.

    • ooh lala

      You should be disappointed in today’s nosy, inconsiderate, under-educated Hays populace.

      • agree

        i agree nosy people that asume stuff from rumors they heard

        • disappointed in todays youth

          no rumor when his own friend said it

      • chris

        the hace populace educated by a group of germans that love to gossip and learned in schools that love to brain wash wrong information.

        I am ready for bashing on my statement , not to reply but for a good chuckle

        as far as what the article is about it is indeed unfortunate to have another young life taken.

  • patti

    thoughts are with his family and friends on thi sad day.

  • my take

    sheriffs office failing to take a intoxicated subject walking in below freezing weather with minimal clothing after they new where and when that person left and there direction of travel contributed to the one death. Assuming the person was picked up having zero evidence to support it to justify a two man search team is a failure. When its your job to search and rescue and you have a direction of travel and small area to cover and fail to even perform much beyond driving the roads that a failure. Argue with that i know u will but those are undisputed facts.

    • Stupid

      Way to “Monday Morning Quarterback” the situation there genius. If you knew where she was at why weren’t you out there looking for here.

    • disappointed in todays youth

      if she wasn’t allowed to drink, she wouldnt of been under dressed and gone out walking to where a search had to be conducted, and that is an undisputed fact

  • 4real

    He will be missed!!! Anyone that hung out with this him know he was a crazy dude and always the life of the party cant belive this happend it wasnt his time.

    • Amazed

      THANKS 4real for your “comment”. Wish all comments were about expressing sincerity and care and friendship- you did your friend well by sharing on here! Hugs!

  • Joe Friday

    Just the facts ma’am…under age kids were at a party in the country. They thought they were safe from the prying eyes of the popo out in the county. The place they were at is a farmstead of a VERY well known and liked family for generations. These “kids”went out driving around on the country roads forgo have a little “fun”. There is another “party” at the same residence that is rented right now to “honor” this young man. So let me summarize…kids out drinking underage, disrespecting the family that owns the property, the alcohol was bought by an adult and given to these kids illegally, everyone of these kids were either driving drunk or subject to MIPs or MICs, the kids involved were all contributing to the resulting death of a young man and now they are again drinking and planning a ” Bon fire” ( not that it is not dry or the wheat across the road would light up in an instance endangering more lives and property). Please tell me how all of these “facts” are not facts and people wonder why the farmers in the county are not real happy when these people move out into the county.

  • Stupid

    Maybe instead of posting on here you should be reporting these “facts” to law enforcement.

    • Uncle Thomas

      Diddo…Stupid!

      Joe Friday before another life is lost to minors making poor choices make a phone call NOW…be responsible!

    • Joe Friday

      A man in uniform was informed of the facts…

      • Joe Friday

        The men in uniform are well aware of what all is going on…and I have all the faith that they will do their job and do it well. It is sad that a concerned citizen has to do the work that these kids’ parents should have done and that even if the men in uniform do their job there is no guarantee that the county attorney will prosecute!

        • ooh lala

          I’m sure that party has been alerted of the threat to their fun that was announced here for the public to see. Don’t be surprised if it was cancelled or moved, lol.

        • Murrae

          WOW… I know some pretty great parents with crazy irresponsible kids. So I would watch your mouth about the parent crap. Obviously you are ignorant.

          • Ma and Pa

            I agree Murrae. I was one of those crazy irresponsible kids and my parents took a lot of unfair blame for my actions. One of my biggest regrets is the flack my parents took on my account, my only hope is my life today can atone for the misery I must have put them through.

  • disappointed in todays youth

    Sounds like some friends of those involved coming to their defense.I don’t care where that party was months ago,or who owns the property. a young girl died cuz she was allowed to drink there.an that young man is still livng his life,and made a baby.and ok maybe the girl wasn’t driving im really not clear, but she was in the car.anyone in that car should face some kind of charges.and personally I think its disgusting they want to have a party and fire.How many friends do they need to lose before they wke up?

    • Wooow

      Hey you moron thats my child. And do you know who invited those people? It wasnt me. So before you open that big mouth of yours maybe you should get your facts straight. In the meantime keep yr suck hole shut. Your all pissing off a lot of people. Why are you all do immature we’re not in highschool anymore so its to grow up mind yr business and quit making up a bunch’ve gossip big babies. And I bet none of you or at least few of you knew Jordan so quit starting drama on his article when you don’t know a thing.

      • seriously?

        okay first off, it wasn’t the guy who lived in the house’s fault that that girl was running around ramped in his house, and his girlfriend was the one who told her to leave… and she asked NICELY by the way. and I’d of done the same thing. and also, incase any of you were wondering, the 2 people who you think don’t deserve to “make a baby” were pregnant prior to the incident of the girl dying, and also they deserve that baby very much. AND why are you all talking smack about who’s fault it was that these kids died? The girls death was an accident and so was Jordan’s. and honestly I highly doubt any of you even knew Jordan in any way, shape or form so I can’t quite figure out why you’re acting like it’s okay to say all of these terrible things? all of you people saying bad things about these deaths should be ashamed of yourselves. What if this was YOUR child in these articles? I bet you wouldn’t be too happy that all of these people were saying things like this, would you? TO THE PEOPLE WRITING NEGATIVE THINGS ON HERE: YOU are the real problems with our society because you start stupid rumors and you can’t mind your own business.

      • disappointed

        maam I said nothing bad about your child.my point is the ones involved should have put a stop to it.and yes the other guys girlfriend asked her to leave nicely,and I commend hr for that.but her bf shouldn’t of been allowed to hae underage people there drinking anyways.accident …yes but he bares some of the responsibility.and im not saying it to be rude,its just an opinion.so if myopinion offends you I am sorry.and for the record I did know him though not well.but well enough through other friends

  • Uncle Thomas

    “disappointed in todays youth”…I have no idea what your ramblings are about, but I am disappointed in todays parents! Yes we can debate responsibility, choices, etc…ultimately the parents lead by example. Is it not the father of the young man who lost his life in the aforementioned story the one which was listed as having a dui only weeks prior? Sad but true…?

    • disappointed in todays youth

      my ramblings as you put it were not towards you.i am talking o the young man whose party rsulted in a girls death a few months ago,hell even any adults who supplied the booz.though I hardly feel his faher getting a dui has anyting to do with this.he wasn’t in the car,he didn’t let him do something so dangerous it cost him his life.yes its sad but this kid and his so called friends made that choice and now hes gone,yet they live on to party again.

      • Uncle Thomas

        disappoint… you missed my point.

    • Oh my god

      You want to BLAME THE FATHER FOR HIS SON’S DEATH?!?! Jesus Christ, have a heart.

      • Uncle Thomas

        You missed the point…to explain further would be pointless

  • Nobody is to blame

    I think in time’s like these it’s human nature to want to point the finger at somebody but in all truth that’s not what the focus should be, everybody should be coming together in tough times not pointing fingers. Just because certain people were present doesnt mean they are guilty of anything you can’t condem them for being what they are which is young. Young people make mistakes it’s a fact of life in fact everybody makes mistakes maybe not mistakes with such tradegic outcomes but it happens it’s life it’s devastating and not fair but it’s life. Were their bad choices made? Yes most definately. Were there ways these events could have been prevented? Yes definately but would’ve could’ve should’ve won’t change events that have already transpired. I am not at all trying to down play these awful events but the people involved know they made poor choices they paid the ultimate price for it and lost loved ones and friends. So please tell me what anybody is getting out of putting them and their personal lives on blast. The only thing that can be done is to hope that these events serve as reminders to everybody on how crucially important it is to make good choices and to be safe when drinking no I dont agree with underage drinking no I don’t condone it but let’s be realistic it’s going to happen lessons learned don’t drink and drive specially not with someone on top of the car and LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER!

    • Uncle Thomas

      Mushrooms are bad!

      • Nobody is to blame

        irrelevant

        • Uncle Thomas

          I would beg to differ. If the author of the above wrote that mumbo jumbo and was not on an illicit drug I would suggest they take 4th grade English over.

          • Nobody is to blame

            You know what’s worse than mushrooms is ignorance, and hardly I happened to be college educated if you couldn’t read the above post then perhaps you need to retake 4th grade English but I know people like you have nothing better to do than try and get a rise out of people. If you don’t like what was said and don’t have a relevant agruement as to why you don’t agree with it then just pipe down because inferring somebody is under the influence of drugs is not a valid argument.

  • Nobody is to blame

    Let these people grieve in peace

  • Ellis resident

    Want to blame someone, how about the Movies? This dangerous behavior has been in several movies. They make it look fun and cool.

    • Uncle Thomas

      Thank you for understanding!

  • :(

    Wow, you people are unreal! Nobody is to blame. Stupid decisions werre made by everyone involved. A horrible price was paid. Lets all learn from these mistakes and pray fkf his friends and family.

  • Disgusted

    Uncle Thomas are you an atheist? You can’t be a Christian. What would Jesus Christ say about the judgement and hipocracy by you and others on this page. What kind of cold hearted, evil person must you be? That is my brother and my father you have criticized. Who are you to judge? If you want to make a point then write a book and someone who cares can read it. Perhaps you should re-read the disclaimer at the top of the page because you are not respectful. I hope that no one comments further on here if they are going to make comments that are anything other than respectful.

    • Uncle Thomas

      You are calling me judgmental, then you call me an atheist…okay! What have I stated that is so offensive?

      • Offended?

        The term atheist isn’t a derogatory term.

        • Uncle Thomas

          I would agree, however it is passing judgment….correct?

      • Disgusted

        I asked. You didn’t answer.

  • Charles D.

    If God wanted them to live he would have made them smarter.

    • Uncle Thomas

      Charles…how offensive…you atheist!

  • Kale R

    Hey CHARLES. You know its worthless piles of trash like you that make people committe suicide and do harm to themselves. Wat makes you so special? You need to learn some respect. I am reporting you to higher authorities you better hope for your sake there is nothing they can do about you disrespectful attitude.

    • Charles D.

      There is no.higher authority than our Creator, this is all part of His plan.

  • :(

    Charles, you are a waste of life

  • glad i moved

    I wasn’t going to say anything but, after reading all of the above comments, I sincerely feel as if I must say something. Every single person who has posted anything other than sympathy and condolences for the family are just plain wrong. I lived in Hays most of my life. I wanted to have a family and raise my children there. Thank GOD I moved away and am now raising my daughter in a place where the people are kind, considerate, compassionate, and pull together when tragedy strikes. The most upsetting part is, I remember when Hays was filled with people like this. I am deeply saddened for the people who still are in Hays and have to deal with such judgemental, uncompassionate, inconsiderate, rumor spreading individuals such as yourselves. I remember a time in which i lost quite a few of my classmates and close friends. I am so thankgul that the people of Hays were so much more supportive than you are. Don’t Jordan and Citlali’s friends and family deserve the same respect and support?!? Apparently you people have either never lost someone close, or have forgotten how hard and painful it is to have to continue living your life everyday, knowing that you will never see that person again. Also, these “kids” you kerp referring too, are all adults. Most of which are already or just about 21. I am well aware that drinking at age 20 is still underage drinking, but most of them have their own jobs, money, houses, and kids. They are all learning how to live life along with the rest of us. Now, as the bible says, “he who is without sin, may cast the first stone.” It also says that no man is without sin. Maybe you all should clean out your closets efore you start talking crap about other’s decisions. There is no one to blame for a trgedy. That is exactly why it is called a tragedy. For the person who keeps talking about Citlali and her death and blaming the person whose house she was at, thete were a lot of people who showed up that were not supposed to. His girlfriend, who was and still is pregnant, asked that she leave and offered to either give her a ride, or find her one. She did find several people that offered to give her a ride home and she refused. You should have NEVER brought up another tragedy and started talking about it in the first place. Secondly, you obviously have NO idea what ACTUALLY happened so stop speaking about it as if you do. Finally, those of us who knew and loved Jordan personally, know that he was doing great. Yes, he had his issues with the law but, he was seriously getting his act together and getting his life straightened out. If all you can do is complain and blame the youth of Hays, dont say or comment anything else anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised if your hateful, inconsiderate, ill informed comments push another one of the “youth” to the point of ending their lives as well. Did you think about ANY of that? No, of course not because you are mean and inconsiderate. You only want the attention that comes with stirring the pot and causing problems. You make me sick. As for Jordan’s family, I am deeply sorry that you have lost such an amazing, vibrant, and loving young man. As for all of his friends, I love you guys. Stay strong, keep your heads up and make sure to live every day as if it were last just as Jordan did. Lastly, for Jordan, I love you brother. May the mean and hateful things people are thinking and saying keep you from resting in peace. Have fun up there.

    • ?

      But now it appears that you are the one judging others…..

      • glad i moved

        I have not judged anyone. I am only stating the obvious. When my best friend was killed in a car accident another one of our friends was driving. Thank the lord the people in our community had enough sense to not bring it up and spread rumors about what actually happened. Everyone understood how badly we were already hurting, and did not want to add to our pain. They had enough sense to keep their opinions to themselves and to let the police handle the situation in the manner they saw fit. I am only saying that my heart breaks for how immature and incompassionate people are acting regarding the given situation.

    • Frank

      Be respectful and get her name right…CITLATLI. Thank you.

      • glad i moved

        How was anything i said in any way disrespectful? I apologize for misspelling her name. I was so upset typing that i was not paying attention and for some reason, that is how my phone autocorrected it. I have known Citlatli for years. I helped teach her and her brother in ESL for a couple of summers when they were little as well as working with her at IHOP recently. She was also very good friends with my brother. I obviously meant absolutely no disrespect and she knows that i love her. She was such a fun, free-spirited young woman. She had the ability to brighten even the darkest days with her smile.

  • disappointed in todays youth

    so wanting young people or anyone to be held responsible for their carelessness and or foolishness is wrong? sorry but I don’t agree, you see it on the news all the time.and I think if the law did more of this maybe these young people would learn to think their actions would have consequences.and for me personally I never said one bad thing about the young man personally, he was a wonderful thoug troubled young man.i just feel strongly towards those involved.id never wish sicide on anyone,and if my opinion makes someone feel that way im sorry but its their own guilt talking…rip and many sympathies to his family.he truly did have a beautiful soul
