“You f***ing killed somebody, you motherf***er! You killed somebody. Stay right there!” the bystander screamed as he kept Molina on the ground.According to WFAA, Molina had just consumed eight double-vodka cocktails at a bar, meaning that his blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit. He then ran a red light and struck Cervantes’ car, killing him instantly. There is another sobering aspect to this story. Video surveillance from the bar shows Molina stumbling about behind the counter and the bartender, Cala Richardson, shooing him away. Richardson has been charged with overserving Molina. “The signs that he displayed should have been an indicator that he was not safe to walk away from that building,” Lake Worth Police Chief J.T. Manoushagian told WFAA. “This is a stark reminder of what can happen when we ignore those signs.” Indeed, there were several mistakes that led to the tragedy that day. First, there was the mistake that Molina made by deciding to drink too much. Then there was Richardson’s decision to ignore the fact that he was obviously drunk and give him more alcohol. Finally, there is the fact that Molina attempted to drive after drinking. Cervantes’ wife and children will forever have to live with the consequences of these decisions. A woman is now without her husband and two children are without their father because of the foolish actions of one man, and because others allowed them to happen. We need to remember that every seemingly minor decision we make has consequences. If we do not give these decisions the thought they deserve, we risk harming other people, just as Molina did the family of Alex Cervantes. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
