|"HOTTEST BITCH I EVER MET"|
It is also well-accepted that Australians do their best to excuse it, ignore it, cover it up, and otherwise diminish the known impacts.
We're all expected to feel sorry for Claire Tucker, a local hairdresser who stumbled off the highway into a culvert after an alcohol-fueled day at the races. Like everyone, we're all saddened when an unnecessary death occurs in such a manner. But we're even more saddened when the lessons of the death are hidden and obfuscated by the media.
Claire along with her friends were known "party girls", never ones to pass up an alcohol-fueled day or night. Her bff Danielle Boldiston has been quoted to say of Claire: "The hottest bitch I have ever met". Claire was reportedly stumbling-down drunk when she left the racetrack. So sloppy drunk her "friends" did a runner, leaving Claire to get home on her own in this condition.
The "friends" are now soothing their conscience by putting up a GoFundMe troll for money from the community - now hopefully earmarked for Claire's child, named "Zephyr". Because single women banging out a rugrat is now the equal of getting a tattoo, or a new handbag.
But with no insurances to protect the little bastard, the public is now saddled with another homeless child. A few thousand bucks isn't going to make much of a dent raising a 5-year-old.
So the media is making much of the "tragedy", with nary a hint of personal responsibility.
Cairns has a history of ignoring drunken behavior.
Second-rate AFL player Jeff "Hoppy" Hopgood careered off an
empty highway at the Gold Coast one night in 2006, and there was NEVER an acknowledgement of the police report showing his blood alcohol was over .25! Instead, we named part of Cazaly's after the fool.
Hopefully someone will sit little Zephyr down when he gets older and explain to him the REAL circumstances of his mother's life, and death. And someone PLEASE - let's find the baby daddy and get him to take up his responsibilities!
