    She mowed down a helpless, elderly woman while driving a van high on drugs, but a twisted Long Island teen still claimed to see a bright side to the horrific crash.

    "The thing that made me not feel so bad was, she was old," hellcat Kayla Gerdes, 18, told investigators after she was busted for killing 69-year-old Rebecca Twine Wright as the retired doctor trimmed her lawn Tuesday, a source told The Post.

    What a sick little [self-censored]. Stuff like this just drives me nuts.

    Hopefully, ms. Gerdes will be at least as old when she gets out.

    Or, if she gets out earlier, maybe it will be in a pine box.

    Oh but she was screaming "I'm sorry! It was a mistake! I didn't mean to hurt her! I stepped on the brake and it wouldn't stop!!" as she went from the courthouse to the police car. I'll bet my bottom dollar that "brake" was the gas. I honestly wonder if she's stable mentally because of how she's reacting. It's kind of the "it's not my fault" thing and I wonder if her parents always cleaned up her messes for her so she never learned responsibility.

    Don't you mean "self-centered"? She certainly didn't censor what she said. She said she didn't like the way her boyfriend was driving. Maybe he wasn't driving fast enough for someone under the influence of drugs.

    She sees it as just an accident, and they should have left her alone and not arrested her. In her drug-clouded mind she did nothing wrong and isn't to blame. After all, the woman was old--so what's the big deal? Of course, had the woman been in her 30's, she still would have considered her old.

    Even if she is convicted of anything, she will still consider herself the victim since she doesn't believe she is guilty of anything. Her allegedly "doctor-prescribed" drugs are to blame. More than likely she bought them from the local drug dealer. Besides, her brake simply didn't work, and everybody drives around in other people's yards don't they?

    This is what everyone needs to focus on (other than the tragedy of the life taken and the family's deep sorrow).

    This girl will NEVER view herself as anything except a victim.

    And there are countless men, women, and boys just like her.

    What can we expect when our nation no longer values the lives of innocent, unborn babies? Of course the elderly and mentally and physically challenged will also be viewed the same way.

    I believe that with Obamacare here, stories like this will be even more commonplace.

    When the girl gets out of prison (if she serves any time at all), she can get a job as an "end of life counselor" in Obama's Admin. health care program.:smilewinkgrin:

    peace to you:praying:

    Recently Nebraska lawmakers passed a law banning abortions at 20 weeks based on "fetuses" (babies!) feeling pain then. Of course abortion rights groups call the Nebraska bill 'unconstitutional'.

    This country is closer to Logan's Run than we want to believe.

    I knew Obama would be to blame. It's like that quote from the Simpsons: ''Even when it was the bears, I knew it was the immigrants...''
