Ask Paul B: Carly Rousso — A Tragic Story

Dear Loyal Paul B Readers,

Much to my dismay, I must comment on the trial of the Highland Park teenager who ran over the family of four in September ’12, killing a five year old girl. Carly Rousso was the teen convicted of this incredibly sad crime. She had borrowed the family car that afternoon, and promptly headed to Walgreens to buy a few cans of computer air duster. “Huffing” will give the owner of this pressurized can the ability to “get high” off it’s contents while hyper-ventilating and simultaneously inhaling the fluorocarbons during this “process.” Carly Rousso did exactly that some 21 months ago. One must wonder why this girl had to drive a car after inhaling this substance, but there are many unanswered questions and issues here.

I am told (from my own sources) that Rousso is a troubled girl, adopted, and recovering from a serious dog attack just last year. I am told that she had some facial scars and underwent some plastic surgery. Neither of these issues validate her irresponsible behavior. I read that Rousso also ran over this little child, not once, no, not twice, but three times. Rousso, in her uncontrolled, chemical induced insanity, needed to head to the upstairs of her house and jump. Jaclyn Sacramento, age five, needed to grow old, and now she is gone…forever…

Throw the book at Rousso, and send a direct, heat seeking missile-type message to other “thrill seekers.” I am beyond outraged, can you tell?
