Megan Merkel, Upstate Woman Blamed In Death Of Teacher, Wants Haters To "Suck A ___ And Choke On It"

Categories: Idiots

After allegedly mowing down a teacher while driving drunk, nothing (ahem) screams "class" more than taking to Facebook to declare your innocence -- and tell the "haters" to "suck a dick and choke on it."

That's what an Upstate woman did over the weekend after allegedly killing a high school biology teacher near Rochester while driving drunk...at 7:45 a.m.

Just to re-emphasize the class factor, we'll repeat: police say 23-year-old Megan Merkel was driving drunk at 7:45 A.M. before running over a teacher and then telling the world to "suck a dick and choke on it."

(See Merkel's idiotic Facebook rant below)
According to various reports from Upstate media outlets, Merkel was driving northbound on Route 250 in Penfield, a suburb of Rochester, alongside her recently paroled boyfriend, 22-year-old Mark Scerbo, who was driving his motorcycle next Merkel's car.

Police say Scerbo -- who served time as a guest of the state for DWI -- was repeatedly passing Merkel's car to do wheelies on his bike as the two barreled down the road.

Also on Route 250 Sunday morning was 40-year-old teacher Heather Boyum -- a mother of two children -- who was riding her bike on the shoulder of the road.

As Scerbo again passed Merkel to do yet another wheelie, he hit Boyum, throwing her from her bike. Then Merkel ran her over -- before fleeing the scene.

Scerbo was taken to a local hospital, where he's getting treated for "serious injuries." Boyum was taken to the same hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Merkel was arrested shortly after leaving the scene of the wreck. She was booked into jail on charges of DWI and released -- which is when she invited those upset that her stupidity led to the death of an innocent mother of two to "suck a dick and choke on it."

Class, class, class.


Merkel, as we mentioned, only has been charged with DWI. Authorities, however, say additional charges could be filed.

In Alabama, they prosecute drunk driving killings as Second-degree Murder, and it's not unusual to get 20 years in prison.  The choice of weapon she's supposed to maintain control of makes no difference (whether you kill someone waving a gun around or you run them over with a vehicle).  This is not a traffic infraction--it's a killing.

It's clear that this is a case of misunderstanding with complete lack of knowledge of all the existing evidence.  The young lady could stand to visit a mental health care professional and get the help she truly needs for her substance abuse and the aftereffects of this upsetting situation.  Good for her for standing up to her detractors.

I don't know the facts of this case but if what I read in this article is true then her boyfriend is the guilty one because he knocked the victim off her bike and into the path of a car. This woman's sobriety only comes into play if she had enough time to brake and didn't because she was drunk. If she didn't have time to brake then she should only be charged with a DUI and her boyfriend with manslaughter. Being a piece of crap isn't a crime.

Both sociopaths. Read all about their loser doings:  "Crash That Killed Teacher: Those Involved Have Criminal Past." http://bit.ly/M6M4e7 

 

Unbelievably, she also called into a local radio show this morning to "set the record straight." There was no remorse to be heard.  Listen at http://bit.ly/M6MuBl

 

In addition, good old Megan has 2 children that she doesnt have custody of.

I agree that this woman sounds terrible, but be careful of making something into a witch hunt until we know all the facts. What if the story isn't exactly at the Village Voice is reporting on it? How would you feel if you accidentally killed someone, and then the town declares you a "murderer"? Maybe you'd flip out on Facebook too. 

 

Sure if the story is exactly as described then she doesn't have anything redeemable about her, but we don't know yet... it's very easy for reactionary newspapers to get facts wrong in an effort to paint a certain picture about someone, and the Village Voice is no exception. In fact this is a very gossipy article to publish so soon after the tragedy.

What a pathetic excuse for a human being.  The world doesn't revolve around you, Princess, and you will pay for what you did.  I love how she believes she's not at fault and couldn't have avoided it.  Really?  Maybe if you weren't a power drinker who has to booze up to get the day going and you had better choice in boyfriends, this could have been avoided.  But your disregard for human life and your stupid choices have come to this.... I hope the next article about this accident is about your 10 year prison term.  At least that would be 10 years without you swerving down the highway.... looking for new victims.

I hope that the state DA, or whomever ends up prosecuting this case, does not offer a plea deal with a recommended reduced sentence.  Ms. Merkel is obviously not remorseful of what transpired, regardless  of whether she is the proximate cause of Mrs. Boyum's death. 

 

I hope that the DA is saving all of Ms. Merkel's Facebook postings and will use them as leverage to obtaining the maximum sentence of any charges filed against Ms. Merkel. 

 

Good-bye Megan.  You're pretty much done.

This was the motorcyclists 4th DWI's, no license, a stolen vehicle, all at his tender age of 22. Of course he gets to live, hopefully after surgery with a big fat metal rod up his ass. Two nothing pot head/drinkers in society, together leave a husband and wife who just celebrated 10 years of marriage a 3 and a 7 year old who will never see their  mother again, students who will miss their beloved teacher, a  friend who got to watch her be mowed down in the middle of the road while getting ready for a triathalon, and little Miss Megan claims she wasn't drunk, she had stopped drinking hours ago, and tells the world to suck a big dick and leave her alone. How is that remorse? All of her pictures on her FB page showed her partying and with a beer inher hand, her "friends" even pleading with her to get help for her alchololism and others saying "were you hammered again"?  I don't consider myself a good christian woman b/c I pray that Karma bites them both in their little drunkard asses espeically the motorcyclist who created the accident in the first place and the one .

This is a sad story.  But, why is an upstate traffic story on the Village Voice website?

Society  will be better off without theese two in general. She can say what she wants on her Facebook about listening to the press and not having facts straight. Here are the unrefutable facts as they stand:

1. They were both drunk at 7:45 in the morning. Both had been at an all night party andf were driving home( Witness stements)

2. Mr. Scerbo was a guest of the state becuase in 2006 he got into a bar fight (at the age of 16, nice job there) and purposefully hit another person with his car and fled the scene. (public record)

3. Lovely, misunderstood (still drunk) Megan ran over the lady after her boyfreind knocked her off her bicycle, and then fled the scene. (witness statements). There were two other men in the car with her, they attempted to flee as well, but were apprehended.

The only thing Megan should ever be saying, no matter what anyone says, is I am sorry, over and over again. Whty don't you suck something Megan.....like the business end of a 12-guage. Sound harsh? She killed someone who's only offense is riding her bicycle on the same road as her drunk jackass man, and her and her drunken friends. And I will take a standing bet with anyone, anywhere; That after she pleads down and serves maybe a few years for mansluaghter, she gets another serious DUI/DWI within 6 months of her release. I will also place the same wager that if her skid mark of a boyfreind lives, by the end of next summer he will either have a DWI of his own or be involved in another serious motorcycle accident. Probably cuased by his blatant stupidity.

If ever there was a time to send a message about this type of behavior, its now. As for her friends, if you really ever want to call yourselves that: stop coddling her on Facebook, oh megan if you need someone to talk too....etc, etc, and force this train wreck into rehab. She is vehiclular homicide waiting to happe. Mostly in part becuase she has what I am guessing is chronic bad judgement and an alcohol problem.

 @bad_yet_sweet17 this is all true. i know who she is as well and am disgusted by her lack of compassion, her lack of humanity, her lack of dignity, lack of morals, lack of class (facebook post) and the list goes on.

 

it just goes to show how she feels/felt about the lives of her two sons when they were born/taken away from her is essentially the same thing she feels about this woman = nothing.

 @VendangeCirtr you aren't very bright. this is a girl who has stolen, beat up people, left her children for dead, was a substance abuser while pregnant and the list goes on. she may need to get a mental health care professional involved but i don't care how "crazy" you are - you don't leave a human being on the side of the road for dead.

 @VendangeCirtr I don't think "good for her" is an appropriate term in any context here.  The young lady was charged with DWI and, furthermore, does not even have a license.  Those two pieces of evidence are enough for me, though I will say that it is difficult not to have some biased after having heard about this woman's poor life decisions.  "Help she truly needs"...psh... how about a reality check in prison.

 @Disgusted WoW!! Thank you for the link to her call. Can't believe she's 23! Sounds like a 50 year old who has been smoking crack for 2 or 3 decades. And her comments! 0_o

"There was nothing I could do"

"People keep calling me a murderer"

"I feel bad and no one seems to understand me" 

Well, she could have NOT been driving. 

She caused someone to die... Ran an innocent mother over with an SUV that she didn't even have a license to operate. What, if not murder, is that called!? 

And, she feels bad. Which her crass words and actions attest to that being a lie.

Disgusting? Absolutely!

 @Disgusted I cannot for one second believe the accused car driver in this case was advised by her attorney to go on a local radio station and speak about this before her trial. Whether or not she is guilty of a particular crime has yet to be determined, but this clearly establishes that we aren't talking about a particularly intelligent person.

 @moebius08 "why isnt this drunken piece of trash in jail waiting to be given a trial date for second degree murder?"

 

Because it's a woman, women are never held responsible for their actions in society.

 @meganisnotnice She's a sociopath, at least it seems that way.

No empathy or remorse, only thinking of herself and as all addicts, lying her way out of trouble. I hope she gets at least 10 to 15 years for manslaughter.

 @PM6161  @Disgusted she is too stupid to get a lawyer, remove images of her partying the night before that were on facebook and WOULD be the type to call in the radio show without a thought in her mind. trust me, she is not bright, so yes @PM6161 you are correct.

 @sandovalpatrick If the Village Voice published a piece every time someone in the US acted like a complete a-hole, there wouldn't be any space left for Musto.
