Let's all metaphorically pour one out for his career. I remember I watched this when it first dropped and didn't understand how someone could be this good. Correct me if I'm wrong but I always regard him, Mo, and Shane as three of the guys who were so next level that all the kids of today we're emulating their consistency.

Such a sad story. God Bless Cory  & his family. Tough times don't last but mentally tough people do. He'll hopefully get a day parole within 12-18 months.


God Bless and rest in peace P- Stone and family.

The earliest he can get out is April 2021, apparently. Not too bad. I wonder when he has to surrender himself.

Man. Heavy, but honestly could've been so much worse. I was expecting 7-10 yrs given the strict DUI laws in Washington.

RIP P-Stone

Accidentally killing your friend must be worse than any prison sentence.

This. And drugs/alcohol are the devil. They're all fun and games until shit like this happens and completely ruins your life/several lives...

I've been straight edge all my life,  not to be a preaching asshole, but because it fits my personality best.

Apart from that I do know we all fight our demons our own ways:
some people like me stare them in the eye and some poeple try to numb them with narcotics, which will work for them as well.

Whatever gets you through life...  just don't let them take control :(

This isn't about justice as this is truly tragic.

And as much I'm against drinking and driving and I said 'I told you so!' I REALLY hope Cory gets some psychological help. Wouldn't be the first dude that commits suicide out of guilt in this type of situation...
Say it all want but you are preaching. Because nobody on here is listening to your words.

Listening? I can't remember myself posting a spoken memo on here?
And where exactly did I say something that triggers you (or that other kook) to state such a reaction?
Because I said it was the devil? What's wrong if I call it that when I've literally seen beautiful women get turned into walking skeletons because of drugs, seen guys waste away because of alcohol addiction, seen kids and wifes get assaulted because their dad/husband is a drunk etc.

A dude is going to jail for 4 years, another man/father died.

And than you get 'offended' when somebody shines a light on the 'bad side of partying', is that really how self-absorbed you are? That you feel 'called out' or your image got dented all while this tragedy is happening to someone else?

Djeez dude. This isn't even 'a straight edge thing'. It's just common sense and logic.

Is that me saying that everyone that drinks or does drugs sucks? No
Is that me saying that accidents don't happen? No
Is this tragic and extremely sad for all parties involved? Yes

To each his own, but be responsible and stop glorifying and stimulating this behaviour  (Thrasher, 'sup?)Simple

And now tell me again where I wrote something 'wrong' and became 'a preacher' in your opinion?

I donít think this accident has that much to do with drinking. He wasnít wasted. If you think he should of called an Uber after having a beer at a skatepark on a Pacific Northwest Island then well good for you.

When I drive somewhere and I know I have to drive back I use this simple trick of not drinking inbetween the two journeys.

I agree that completely demonizing Cory doesnít do any good, but his actions still took someoneís life. I understand the guilt he feels is unimaginable, and I donít think heís a terrible person. I think heís a good guy who made a extremely stupid decision. But, he still did what he did, and now itís time for him to man up, and serve his time. Raven acting like he doesnít deserve any of this is absurd.
i agree with you, and i think Raven is just a manchild.

Like a fish.

Seriously though... "what's he supposed to do? Call an Uber?"

Just go one step back and don't drink if you know you have to drive.

It's quite simple - you just don't put alcohol in your body.

I had to pick my father in law up from the train station at midnight a few weeks ago. On a Friday night I'll normally drink about 6-8 pint cans. That night I had...0.

Unless your held down and it's funneled in, not drinking booze really is as simple as not drinking booze.

There are no excuses for drink driving.

Its a shitty situation all round. The only tiny silver lining is he didn't hit someone else.

Why the fuck is everyone using the 'Free CK 1' hashtag? How is that not insanely offensive to Prestons memory? "I know there was a terrible accident, and P Stone died, but there should be 0 repercussions"

his buddy died as a result of his driving error. how is that not a repercussion? preston ain't gonna come back to life by ck suffering.
do you get a boner by someone else having a bad day?
i'm not gonna speak for a dead man but i doubt he'd want his friend in jail and i bet he'd be pissed if people were using his death as an excuse to promote teetotalling and shame drinking. p-stone found what he loved and let it kill him.

i've been on both sides of a drunk driving call. i've had friends and cousins killed by drunk drivers, and i've had family members kill others by drunk driving. Just because someone isn't coming back doesn't mean that no one should face repercussions.

hope he stays from the aryan gangs in prison.

Not sure you get much of a choice in prison. You roll with the car that they put you in.

When I was in rehab with a bunch of prison dudes everybody had to be in a "car". I told 'em I drove the Mary Kay Car and they got a kick out of that and left me alone.



I used to be an assistant for college students with special needs, and one of the classes I sat in on was a Criminal Justice course taught by someone who served time in prison. He saved his story for the very last day of class, and among all the fucked up stuff he told us the encounter that probably stuck with me the most was his encounter with Neo-Nazis.


He was (is) a tough looking bald dude, so naturally he attracted those kinds of people, and when they tried recruiting him he told them to fuck off. Later that evening he was working in the cafeteria and about a dozen of them jumped him, knocked him out, and tattoo'd a Swastika on his neck.  He got medical attention and later a removal/cover up, but they were otherwise pretty unsympathetic to the whole situation.




Cory messed up, and I'm sure this has not been an easy year for him, but I really hope his experience doesn't include this kind of misfortune. It's not what Preston would have wanted.

I remember that even though his Beware of Sasquatch part was next level incredible, a large amount of people on this board were hating on him until he kind of adopted the boozy, slacker party guy persona.

The irony.

Bummer for all everyone involved.

interesting. this kinda of changes the framework of the discussion.

That said, this kinda sums it up, from PStones wife

"But Maigetter's widow, Anna Cobb, spoke for the prosecution.

ďOne day, youíre going to have kids and youíre going to understand the depths of this. I know you didn't mean to do it and I love you,Ē she said.""

You are making mountains out of mole hills my friend. I am not a self absorbed person and I do not feel called out one bit. And I also donít care that you have never messed with drugs or alcohol. Good for you, thatís a a major accomplishment in my opinion.

I have a beautiful wife and daughter at home and come from a father that was constantly fucked up on drugs and alcohol and I told myself I WOULD NEVER end up like that. He passed away in may from a heroin overdose in the streets of Baltimore. No money, no belongings, and nobody cared. It took police 2 weeks to even find anybody that knew him.

Donít talk to me like I donít know the bad side of partying because my fathers party never stopped and it cost him his life. And even though he was an asshole when he was alive I will always remember the good times when he was clean.

Where I was triggered is when you said ďnow not to be a preaching assholeĒ when you were clearly preaching. Could you kindly point out where I glorified any type of behavior in my previous two sentence response?

When you are good at something that a lot of people aren't people's moral compass go out the window.  Same reason why people pretend Ben Roethlisberger isn't a rapist. Hell, it took 3 Chappelle Show skits and a Boondocks episode for people to really understand how fucked up R.Kelly is.

Not saying CK's character is in the same category. The news report shows that he's very remorseful of his mistake...but a free ck hashtag as if he was wrongly convicted does come from that talent worship mentality.

Preston may not have wanted Cory to end up in jail, but, we as a society need deterrents. It is to let people know, if you make a mistake like this, even if you are a good, upstanding citizen you will be punished. I feel terrible for Cory, as I did for Ali. But, if their stories get out and stop a couple kids from driving drunk and killing their friends, their jail time as a deterrent is worth it.

100%, and it does everyone involved a disservice

watching that report, 4 years is a lot better than 8-11 years, out in 2021 with good behavior, all things considered this is a pretty lenient sentence

The #freeck1 thing is tone deaf. It makes it seem like he didnít do anything wrong and is imprisoned wrongly. I canít imagine what a lot of family member and close friends of p stone feel when they see that.

I know most of the people using it donít mean that but itís not a good look.

Drunk drivers should be given the electric chair. They are a blight on society.

"But, but Preston wouldn't have wanted Cory to serve time!"

Hmm, I guess we'll never know the answer to that seeing how Cory killed him.
