Anonymous Comment Equals Coward

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I got this interesting anonymous comment today. I always think those are pretty cool because the writer is too afraid to leave their name. It usually means I struck a nerve and am right on with my post.

This cool cat brought up a good point. When my son was hit by high school football coach Larry Scott Vang ( a great, upstanding role model this coward would have you believe)  he had been drinking. In fact my son was drunk. It's a pretty novel idea for someone that's been drinking to actually WALK home instead of driving, at least the 'fraidy cat that refused to be identified would want you to think.

This person also said my son was in the middle of the road when he was hit. Hmmmm....that's what Vang said. Kind of funny that the attorney says that 99% of the people involved in hit and runs say the very same thing. Wow. When in fact, if you read the police report and recreation of the CRIME, my son was on the shoulder of the road when he was struck down by Larry Scott Vang. Wow, another revelation.

Also if you read the police report and the DA's investigation you'll see that the police reviewed the video tapes of the bar that Larry Scott Vang was in before he got BEHIND THE WHEEL and struck my son. Larry Scott Vang had been drinking and decided to drive. Let me get this straight, Cole was drinking and walked, Vang was drinking and drove. I'm scratching my head on that one.

According to Oregon law my son could have been in the middle of the road with a sign that said "hit me" and if someone hit him and LEFT THE SCENE WITHOUT STOPPING TO RENDER AID, OR EVEN LOOK it's a Class B felony, something that Vang admitted, and in fact pleaded guilty to, and is now in jail for. Cole wasn't in the middle of the road with a "hit me and leave me unconscious like a dead deer on the side of the road" sign. He was walking on the shoulder the  investigation revealed.

Larry Scott Vang, after throwing back a few as shown on the tapes, hit my son and drove home leaving my son to be flown by Life Flight to the trauma center. Cole was hit so hard that he was knocked out of his boots and everything in his pockets went flying out. He left him like road kill on the side of the road.

This person also said it wasn't the first time my son had walked home drunk. Well if he had been drinking I certainly hope he wasn't driving like Larry Scott Vang was. I'd like to know how this person "knows" this. Could it be another classic case of trying to blame the victim? This person also failed to mention Larry Scott Vang's former DUI (according to a background check). Wow! Cole has no DUI's. I wonder if that's because if he'd ever been out drinking he made different decisions than Larry Scott Vang had. One can't help but wonder if Larry Scott Vang didn't stop that night because he had been drinking and was covering his own ass instead of having compassion for the person he ran over.

One more thing, and this is addressed to Vang's wife, staring down the VICTIM'S family in court isn't a cool thing to do. Karma's a bitch. Oh and by the way, get your roots done. Your hair looked like crap, in my opinion.

Bottom line is that Larry Scott Vang committed a crime that night. My son did not.


Cheeseboy September 12, 2010 at 10:19 AM  

I don't care if your son was wearing a sign that said "hit me" on it and standing in the middle of the road (which we know he was not), the fact that this D-bag hit him and then LEFT makes him first class scum in my book!


Also, I have taken off my anonymous comments for precisely this point. You want to comment on my blog? You are going to have to say who you are!

Unknown September 12, 2010 at 10:20 AM  

I can't believe this happened. I'm horrified and appalled. I hope your son will be okay? New follower here, saw your tweet a minute ago.

Hugs to you and your family.


Mimi September 12, 2010 at 10:26 AM  

If that coward had left an fowarding blog name where we could reach them, I would be posting away in your favor. Do not uleash more wrath of the bi-polar ones. I can cut you to pieces with my words, much like the Diva just did.

Maybe if the fuckwad's wife was so worried about her precious husband, she would have picked him up from the bar, stupid bitch.

You don't have to publish this if you don't want to, but I am pissed for you.

Hugs & love,

Unknown September 12, 2010 at 10:28 AM  

How fucking rude.....and cowardly! I have no tolerance for bullshit and that anonymous comment was just that- Bullshit. In MY OPINION....the sentence was not long enough so anonymous can take it and shove it up their ass. Oh wait--maybe the guilty will get something shove up his ass. One can only hope. Then again, he might like it. Fuck-that just pissed me off.

There- I feel better now!

Nolie September 12, 2010 at 10:29 AM  

People sure can be complete insensitive assholes when they have a computer and anonymous time to hide behind. Sorry someone left these complete bullshit comments on your blog. Having been a victim to something myself that was published in newspapers I got to sadly be a victim to peoples comments behind anonymous names. If you read my post Dear Media you will see my shout out to those cowards. I am sorry that you had to have this garbage on your own blog.

The Blogging Goddess September 12, 2010 at 10:30 AM  

Wow...that is about the worst thing I have ever heard. I am so sorry this happened to your son, and frankly, think this douche who is drinking and driving should be put on the side of the road and run over so he can really feel the pain. Jail isn't good enough.

Unknown September 12, 2010 at 10:37 AM  

You tell that bitch!!! Those assholes can take their vitriol elsewhere.

Becky September 12, 2010 at 11:13 AM  

Ok, I can't find the words to vent just how pissed off this makes me. AARRGGHHH..

Blame the victim.

Because lord knows we can't blame the drunk douchenozzle behind the wheel of the car.

Again.. no words...

other than I'm sorry this evil fucktard is a part of your life at all.

Tree September 12, 2010 at 11:15 AM  

OMG! I'm so sorry about your poor son! And like you said...even IF he was wearing a sign that said "hit me" in the middle of the road....this guy left him for dead to cover his own ass!! And his wife had the nerve to stare YOU down?! I don't blame you one bit for being upset...glad they figured out the truth.

P.S. I also have anon comments disabled just for that reason... have something to say? Don't be a coward about it.

Tricia September 12, 2010 at 11:28 AM  

I can't believe it! Okay, yes I can-judicial system sucks. It makes me wonder if scum bucket has an "in" with the judge? Or does his lawyer? That's been my experience-lawyers who contribute to judges campaigns are "great" lawyers/win.

I hope your son will be Okay!

Anonymous,  September 12, 2010 at 11:48 AM  

This is Emily sorry I don't have an account to post who I am

You know my brother was hit by 2 cars that never stopped. Sorry to say he didn't make it but they did find the 2nd driver and his lawyer tried to blame my brother because like Cole he was "drunk" and walking home too. Of course my family flipped out and that was the end of that. Back in 1996 it wasn't a felony in NJ but it did get passed after this happened to my brother and I'm so happy for that. It's still an open case and I pray that my family will get the chance to watch the 1st driver get handcuffed and taken away

I'm releaved that the coward that hit Cole was found and sentenced

Karyn September 12, 2010 at 12:52 PM  

My dear Diva- I think we all know why she wrote what she did- she is trying to remove guilt from her incarcerated husband and put it on Cole- (who by the way is one of the funniest guys I know ;) ) To bad her displacement isn't working! Wonder if dear Larry has made any friends in jail yet?

On an aside- we had coupons in the paper this weekend for Miss Clairol or L'oreal or some such do it your self color- shall I forward them to her- I mean after all- her husband is out of a job.....

Monkey Man September 12, 2010 at 12:53 PM  

Coward indeed. Trying to defend this dirt bag's action is just the same as denying that Hitler was involved in genocide. Dick. Or C-word. As the cowardess case may be.

The Queen September 12, 2010 at 1:01 PM  

I'm pissed that you didn't post the comment so we could make fun of it.. you know they always come back to view their handiwork.. unless they are the hit and run kind..

Andrea September 12, 2010 at 1:09 PM  

OMG! And EW. Seriously? Someone has the balls to post that, and anonymously, well, not much courage there, right? I'm so sorry that this happened to your son. How awful. I can only imagine what that must have been like for you, as a mother, whew. I'm so sorry that people are jerks, too!

Unknown September 12, 2010 at 1:21 PM  

I am so sorry that happened... and for the jackass to leave an anonymous comment, unfortunately people are just that, jackasses... especially when the hide behind the internet. It makes them feel all big like they can act that way and get away with it.

Its sad really that people are like that.. Trolls.

Crisc September 12, 2010 at 1:28 PM  

My cousin a few years back had a bum jump out in front of him, he had freaked and fled the scene but was back before the cops showed up. The bum called a lawyer of the tv and they sued my cousin. Is it possible you could sue this asshole?

Michelle Pixie September 12, 2010 at 1:30 PM  

I just don't get people! Did they really feel better for trying to blame the victim for being responsible and not getting behind the wheel of a vehicle or should I say loaded weapon?! IDIOTS!! Thank god for people like your son who know their limits and don't put my life in danger. And last time I checked it isn't illegal to drink and walk home!

The Invisible Seductress September 12, 2010 at 2:16 PM  

Sending you many hugs and a few thousand proud smiles because you did raise a good man who cared enough about himself and others to stay off the streets after having some fun.

You are an amazing woman who has been through struggles that crumble many people/families and yet you stand tall and proud as an example of the strength and determination many people can only strive to achieve!! ;}

Hats off Diva!!

Snowbrush September 12, 2010 at 2:42 PM  

Most people who post anonymously want to say vicious things without taking responsibility for them. That's why I finally stopped allowing anonymous comments. I hated to do that, but they were getting out of hand.

Gucci Mama September 12, 2010 at 3:06 PM  

Anonymous is a super douche. Flush him. Can you flush a douche. Find out first, then we'll deal with him.

I should take more prescription narcotics for my migraine now so things start to make sense again.

What was I saying?

Unknown September 12, 2010 at 3:11 PM  

OK, first of all - my prayers are going out to your son and your whole family - that's horrible. And thank God he was SMART enough to be WALKING home if he drank too much, instead of driving. He should be commended for that.

As for the comments, FUCK anyone who doesn't have the balls to stand up behind what they are saying. I had an 'anonymous' guest call me a whore on my blog and it just cracked me up. So you have the guys to call me a whore but not to tell everyone who you are.

Spineless people's opinions matter less than not at all. :)

Dazee Dreamer September 12, 2010 at 3:18 PM  

What the Hell!!!! Larry Scott Vang is a piece of shit garbage, and Mrs Larry Scott Vang is a bitch to have stared you down. God, her poor husband, having to pay for almost killing your son. He didn't get enough time in the slammer for my liking and he also doesn't get to spend time with Bubba.

Pat September 12, 2010 at 3:27 PM  

It does just piss me right the hell off, but you know the truth, the courts PROVED what happened, so nothing "anonymous" can say or do will change that.

Hope you son is healing okay.

JoJo September 12, 2010 at 4:04 PM  

OMG!!! I'm so behind. The picture of your son is making me so sad. I wish him a speedy recovery. Unbelievable that the driver is even attempting to justify his actions! The thought that he could just leave a person lying there to die makes me sick!
What is wrong with people!! How did you restrain yourself from punching him in the face in court?

ShelliBean September 12, 2010 at 4:33 PM  

Firstly, Emily...Oh my goodness! I am so sorry you and your family had to go through that and to not get the justice deserved for all parties. I pray they are able to find the first driver!

And Mommy Diva...just reading about what happened to Cole again makes my stomach ache. Seeing that man in court the other day that did that to my brother made my heart hurt. I almost expected to see a monster there or something un-human. I don't know how to explain it but I guess I didn't expect to see a real person...I just don't know how one person could do that to another! And I don't see why it matters what Cole was doing at all? Really!? Is there really anything he could have been doing that justifies hitting him with your vehicle and leaving him on the side of the road? No. Accidents happen. Leaving was on purpose. I think you get that, but obviously some people out there don't. It's sad really that anyone (the driver, the commentor...) could hold such little value for a human life. I feel sorry for them.

Marvi Marti September 12, 2010 at 4:44 PM  

Yes Karma is a bitch, and looks like Vang found out! I do hope your son is doing okay.

Your son is to be commended for being smart enough to walk when he has been drinking and not drive! Very wise young man!

My guess is the anonymous writer is a family member of Vang...maybe even Mrs.Needsherootsdone!

Daisygirl September 12, 2010 at 4:57 PM  

I hate anonymous comments! This world is so messed up, seriously how could someone just leave someone like that...again I say when the guy gets out we find him and dry ice him to death!

The Bipolar Diva September 12, 2010 at 5:18 PM  

You guys all rock so much! It was hard to respond to everyone on here so all of you that I have email addresses for I emailed you personally.

I can't help but wonder if the anonymous commenter is someone that would also commit the gutless action of fleeing the scene the way they did here.

Vang is in jail and not for anyone's actions but his own.

Allyson & Jere September 12, 2010 at 6:21 PM  

Seriously? WHAT A DOUCHE! I just don't get people blaming the victims. ESPECIALLY a walking victim. Good hell!

I'm glad the guy got caught, and glad he's doing some time. Unfortunately not enough, but at least some. Good for you guys for fighting it out in court and making sure he paid.

Shame on him, his family, and his "supporters" for even insinuating for one second that your son had any blame in the matter.

WOW!! Now I'm all pissed.

Jaime September 12, 2010 at 7:16 PM  

I never quite understood the point of commenting with out leaving your name in the first place. Its like a ding dong ditch I guess.

Shit if you can take the time to leave a comment - make the time to answer the responses or follow ups!

Holly September 12, 2010 at 7:39 PM  

How ASININE!! It's the responsibility of the driver to be aware of conditions on the road and have the reflexes to react EVEN IF he WERE in the middle of the road... Which he was not... GAH!!

I am SO sorry your son had to go through this and yes, a million points to your son for being a responsible drinker and choosing to WALK home when drinking EVERY time!!

I took ANONYMOUS off of my blog, too. If they don't have the juevos to comment with their name, than I don't NEED to read their STUPID comment.

((((HUGS)))) to you and HIM! <3

mypixieblog September 12, 2010 at 8:18 PM  

I am outraged for you and for your son who clearly had enough sense that night not to get behind the wheel of a car. I'm so sorry to hear about this but wish him a speedy recovery. And like you said, karma is a bitch. Larry and his wife with the bad dye job will learn that the hard way.

Sandra September 12, 2010 at 9:55 PM  

OMG I loved this post girl! Love how you got in all your shots, and I hope "anonymous" asshole came back to read this post!!!

Anonymous,  September 12, 2010 at 9:58 PM  

Hey Diva, I liked what you wrote above, and I'm in agreement a hundred percent. I would like that our state had troopers who were willing to support the truth of circumstances instead of choosing the rich in my brothers case, over my brother, or in your case, the fame over your sons. I'm reminded that in the last day, the Righteous Judge will settle all accounts, including those who would serve to defame someone even after facts have been revealed to justify the guilty.
I don't have an account set up here, so I don't know if my comment will go thru, but I am your friend, and fan of your blogs...I am
John The Hebrew. (((HUGS)))

Crazy Brunette September 13, 2010 at 7:20 AM  



HE WALKED. Because he was RAISED to know his limits and know the difference between RIGHT and mother fucking wrong.

What if COLE had hit Vang... Wonder if that ANONYMOUS commenter would've felt the same way.

Cock sucking cunt rags.

Oh damnit I'm pissed.

The bitch with the bad dye job can blow my goddamn ass.

I love you hooker.

Nicole September 13, 2010 at 9:15 AM  

CRAP! I am just catching up on your posts. Dear God in heaven - I hope he is okay, and I hope you are doing well. Screw the rest.

Brans~Muffin September 13, 2010 at 11:40 AM  

My Friends call me Hooker too! And Im sorry your family went through this! You have every right to be outraged! May everyone Heal, including the asshole who hit him, because Karma is a bitch we have to not not wish ill on them (Mr and Mrs)'ll show up on its own!!

Unknown September 13, 2010 at 1:49 PM  

I'm sorry. That person who said that is a moron. Kids go out, party, and sometimes get drunk. It is better to be walking then driving. So it is stupid to say just because your son was drinking it is his fault. It is more stupid to drink and drive.

Anonymous,  September 13, 2010 at 2:08 PM  

UGH!!! i can not believe people are so god damn ignorant.
YOUR CHILD did the right thing. who gives a fuck if he was wearing a beer hat and runing naked down the damn street HE WASN'T driving the fucker who hit him was. AND he's a public figure who deserves to be thrown under the damn bus but as our lovely state has proved so many times before he'll get slapped on the hands and that'll probably be it. fucking sick.

and thanks for your comment on my blog just now!! wow lady 19 years of homeschooling.. i might be dead after 19 years of it with these kids... lol i envy you. lol

Brenda Susan September 13, 2010 at 3:54 PM  

I really, really wish I could step in and make it all go away! What an awful mess!

MarkD60 September 13, 2010 at 3:59 PM  

I didn't bother to go look for the anonymous comment, but it sounds like a whole heap a hooie!

I like this post though, and the way you wrote it.

Hope your son makes a better-than-expected recovery.

Kara September 13, 2010 at 4:01 PM  

There is no excuse for hitting someone on the side of the road and not stopping to see if they are OK, Making sure that they get the medical attention that they need and so on.

Even if your son had been drinking there is no reason why it would be OK to hit him and run from the scene.

I am so sick of people who think it is OK to be that drunk and then get behind the wheel.

Last Monday an old HS friend of mine was walking home after work when she was run over by a semi. He didn't stop but the passenger of the semi did come back and tell them that he knew what the driver had done and had pleaded with him to stop.

She was taken to the hospital where she was put on life support and stayed in a Coma before she died this weekend. The driver, he turned himself in the next day... he said that he heard on the news that there had been a hit and run along a road he had traveled and so he didn't know if it was him. He was drunk! He didn't want to stop because he was more concerned with covering his own ass..... Now this 22 year old woman is GONE because of his and his drunk driving skills...

NO THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR SOMEONE TO DRIVE DRUNK!!!!! ! If this guys wife couldn't come get him then he should have walked home himself, or he could have slept it off in his car.

The dickhole who left you a comment without a name or anything just wanted to be an ass.... well guess what.... They did a good job of it!!!

I hope that your son is OK.

(Sorry for the length of this sometimes I get pretty mouthy)

Diva (in Demand) September 13, 2010 at 4:05 PM  

I wish I could send you a poster with my picture and a caption that says "I'm Diva's friend and I'm from Texas and carry a gun on each hip"

Sorry ass SOB! People who leave anonymous comments are people who are afraid of ass whoopings!

The Bipolar Diva September 13, 2010 at 4:16 PM  

Mark, I deleted that POS comment. I should have posted it so you all could see the crap. But in my anger I took satisfaction in hitting "delete."

The Bipolar Diva September 13, 2010 at 4:17 PM  


That poster sounds awesome!!! Being a Texan myself, and a gun carrier, it's even better!

The Bipolar Diva September 13, 2010 at 4:18 PM  

Kara, thank you so much and I'm so sorry about your friend. It's inexcusable! I just can't understand the mindset of some "people."

The Bipolar Diva September 13, 2010 at 4:20 PM  

I hope I responded to everyone. Those of you that have your email attached I tried to email personally. If not I tried to respond here. If I left anyone out please let me know. I want to thank you for your support.

Truthful Mommy September 13, 2010 at 5:44 PM  

This douche bag who hit your son is a coward. He committed a crime and deserves worse than he got . You know the truth and anyone who can read and has any sense at all knows that he was in the wrong. Praying for peace & health for you and your family!

Joann Mannix September 13, 2010 at 7:01 PM  

First of all, prayers and blessings for your son.

And Anonymous Coward: No one deserves to be hit and left on the side of the road to suffer and perhaps die. Cole might have been drunk, but he was being responsible enough to recognize that and not jeopardize other lives by getting behind a wheel. And truly, even though he was walking on the side of the road, it really doesn't matter where he was. He was mowed down and left there. You have no right to point fingers. There is only one person in the absolute wrong here. How dare you, coward.

Diva, I am so sorry you had to deal with such an insufferable asshole. I'm sure it was someone associated with this man. Perhaps that root showing, bulging eyed wife had something to do with this.

Rose September 13, 2010 at 7:35 PM  

My prayers are with you and your son. At least he walked home and didn't drive home risking killing someone else.

Mice Aliling September 13, 2010 at 7:53 PM  

This is such a terrible episode. I hope your son is on his way to recovery, and kudos to you for the strength your emitting.

The Bipolar Diva September 13, 2010 at 10:33 PM  

Friends, IP addresses are a funny thing most of you know that they can be traced. I have a service that tracks all IP addresses that look at my blog. I've tracked one down here in Oregon, imagine that, someone that's stalking this blog. Hmmmm, I wonder who that might be. I'd give you the city but that might not be right of me to do. But rest assured dear stalker, I know who you are. You're not hidden behind your computer screen any longer.

Jill September 14, 2010 at 7:16 PM  

You totally didn't need to respond to any comments on the subject, no less an anonymous one that tries to blame the victim. Absurd and not worth your time, although of course I see how it would bother you.

Outcast May 8, 2012 at 2:08 AM  

Sorry to comment on something that is so incredibly old Diva but please tell me that this scumbag football coach got a sizeable punishment for running your poor son down.

Post a Comment

I love hearing from you!
