Tookie Williams would be so proud of these two, They've graduated to Da Big House! I hope they get charged as adults and get the needle. Tell their names and the name of their gang wltx! Ignoring the problem won't make it go away and neither will side stepping around the issue.

And local school officials deny that middle school students are involved in gangs. The Midlands has a growing gang issue and students I work with at the least emulate the culture, if they are not already "in training" to enter it.

They deny it because they don't want to offend the African American community which is doing absolutly nothing to fight this other then scream "My kid is innocent".

IF they ae a minor -the parents should do the time with them!

This is why I question the decision of the house and senate making it legal for 18 year olds to carry a gun. It's crazy.

I am so proud of our youth. Yet another 2 young men who will, no doubt, grow up to be fine, upstanding, productive citizens.

I heard on the radio this morning that Columbia was ranked in the top ten worst cities in the US to raise a family. After reading this crap day in day out,how can you fault that logic?

While I agree with you I doubt very seriously any of these weapons were come by legally.

News stations SHOULD broadcast the names of "minors" who commit violent crimes (when it's PROVEN they have done it). Why should pieces of scum like them be protected because they're "minors"? They've committed an "adult" crime. Let them face up to the charges like an adult.

I think they should post pictures up of everyone of them. That way we could go to the web-site and see if any of them live near us. Just like they do the sex offenders.

And your kids are perfect, right? One quick suggestion - if you are not going to be a part of the solution, shut up!! As a matter of fact, you might want to clean up around your own front door first. Jerk!!

It seems like these kids are getting younger and younger. I dont know what they think they are accomplishing by doing this or if they think it will bring them respect but they dont realize just how stupid they are being and I really dont think they even care about how much pain they are bringing to innocent people either.

It's sad, pathetic and sickening to see things like this happening everywhere. And to be honest, I really dont care what color their skin is, they are still pathetic murderers and criminals and the color of their skin will not change that at all. Crime comes in all sizes and colors. It's still all the same to me.

When they stop killing one another and start killing those in the Lexington, Gaston, KKK area things will start to change. I didn't want to go there but after reading certain commets its obvious that they don't care about speaking on race so neither will I! Trust me I hate those gang banging son of bitche$ as well and I don't support what they are doing but you MUST be careful when you speak on race because not all of us or our children are in gangs! I have 2 children and neither of mine or nor were myself & siblings so corrcet yourself. Also check out whats going on with your own race because its just as many of you all gang banging as the African Americans they just don't make the news thats why you guys keep voting for metts. Not a problem because I'm in Metts land as well. I just ask that folk think before running there mouths!

THEY should round up the entire gang and associaties for conspiracy and house them on and island. This is terror people it is not cool. FED GOV needs to fight the real war. Oh but there is no $ in that. Just waiting for Sanford to lower the age to 16. Canada is starting to look real good with there 100 gunrelated deaths a year while ours is in the ten thousands.
