Does it surprise anyone? These guys have experienced traumatizing things. I think more attention needs to be spent on working with soldiers coming back from combat.

I was in jail once for 6 hours and found it horrific. The Capote brothers are looking at a few months at the very least. Most likely a couple years. That is a lot of time when you are in your twenties. Waste of life.

"Don't %$#@ with Miami". I wonder if they knew how much that slogan would change their lives forever. Hopefully they are still in denial. Got to stay sane somehow with the prospect of rotting away in a cell in their future.

lol, some people are just idiotic. How would a disagreement over a song go to the point of killing someone? Its a feaking SONG! Geez...it was probably escalated to that point by the soldier's alcohol fueled ego. But I wasnt there, so I dont know. Any how...why wasnt the soldier responsible enough not to let something so stupid go so far?
