« Traffic Anarchy...A Good Thing? | Main | Nicholas Trout: Another High School Student Dies of Alcohol Poisoning »

To whom it may concern. In sake of Bennet, I think it is completely irrelevent to state his past occurences with the law. Out of respect for the Bertoli's, I think that if you have to write anything, leave the personal entities out......!


Dear Brook, and also the Bertoli family: First, let me offer my condolences. It is a terrible thing to lose a friend and a child.

Hiding the child's drug and alcohol problems, however, is not the right thing to do. It is relevant that Bennet had had previous encounters with authorities for being under the influence of marijuana and alcohol, and being in possession. This began more than two years ago.

Colorado Bureau of Investigation records and Court records show that in September 2002, campus police ticketed Bertoli for underage alcohol possession and obstructing a peace officer. Both charges were later dismissed.

Later that month, Bertoli was ticketed for driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. And as recently as last month, Bertoli was arrested for theft and underage alcohol possession.

Those facts were widely reported. The repetitive nature of the police contacts indicate that Bertoli's use was not controlled and was perhaps addictive in nature.


It is no ones business, like all of the other cold-hearted people out there, maybe you all should re-evaluate what is right and what is not..........
