Yep, we need to understand this poor young lad. He's probably had a hard childhood. I mean, what alse could prompt him to climb in his elderly neighbor's home, beat her to death and steal her car? The answer? It doesn't matter! This is the kind of parasite our justice system has been babysitting for way too long. The only justice for these animals is a hollow-point to brain housing group.

I think what he did is totally disgusting, and should pay for what he did 10 times over. I do have a question thou, why was a 88 year old lady doing living alone? She was afraid of the kid ,since he came in to her house the week prior to the beating.I just don`t think she should have been alone there.I`m not trying to say what he did was ok,it definitly was not I think they should do the same thing to him.Just curious!

I thought it was illegal for anyone to mention that a juvenile had a juvenile record? Arent there federal or state laws prohibiting this?

To "me just curious" I understand and agree that he needs to be punished extremely harsh! To answer your question...I don't care if I am 24 or 84, it is my house and No One, and I mean No One has the right to come into my house and violate me. She very easily could have been agile, alert and capable of living alone. Sure she didn't have the ability to defend herself, but she shouldn't have to. Her home should be her safe place, and I guess that is why the scum bags of our society choose to target the elderly.

I'm waiting for the liberals to get on here and say that this poor kid is the victim. Come on...say it....you know your thinking it.

He's a piece of trash and should be treated as such, thrown away never to be seen again. And when I say thrown away, I don't mean in jail....he should be "discarded" of.

There are many 88 year old people who are still able to live on their own due to good health and a sharp mind. No punishment this piece of trash receives will ever be severe enough. Death would be too kind to him.

No, you didn't. I just wanted to answer your question. I have to say when I reach my 80's and if I am still able to live in my home and not a nursing home, I just hope I could be safe. My thoughts and prayers are also with your family.

I agree with you all. But let's give a cheer for the great detective work by the Pa State Police. Finally recognizing that , hey--the victims car is now over here--and it belongs over there. And, not one of his family members or the neighbors who were on t.v for 35 seconds of fame , ever noticed that her car was now ,in his back yard ? Neither did the State Police. So much for "Caring" neighbors. And, the troopers actually interviewed this garbage, saw the injured hand and still did not put 2 + 2 together. So we can ask Rendell to abolish thier jobs, to save us all some money to buy into a private security patrol . Imagine how the other neighbors must feel after presenting thier 35 seconds of fame and "caring" ?
The ladys' home, according to t.v news was in good shape , which is evident that she was in good health. So is this what we'll all be looking for in the future ? And were was the Probation Officer if he has an arrest history? Blame them too.

Quess again,,,you safety is really at risk in a nursing home. THAT's why Rendell found the legislation that prooves that all but Pittsburgh, and Phila counties have been operating illegally for over 40 years. It's illegal to use State money for county operations. That's why no medicare / medicade is being reimbursed to these dumps util it appears on the House floor in June. This includes all County homes.. So far 26 county homes have been sold or closed.. Adams should go too-- since to many politicians have thier filthy fingers in that pie.

Wow, I didn't see any of that information in any media releases. Do you have any CLUE what your taking about? The PA State Police track down and arrest this guy and your gonna bash them? Didn't put 2 + 2 together? I guess 2 + 2 doesn't equal an arrest? YOur an idiot. I think your name fits, BOZO! Nice work PSP.

You have know clue waht we have done and tried to do for Colton! Unless you know the true facts, that's when you can voice your opinon. The guns were always locked up!! Not just because of Colton but, because we didn't want them stolen.........and as far as the victims family, they are still our friends and we are victims too! People that have hearts and common sense would realize that it's not our fault what Colton did. Colton will pay for what he has done and my family will see to that!

Know what your talking about before you speak...Bozo's like you don't even matter!! The detectives have been wonderful and still are. They feel for both of the familys. This is no longer a "blame game" They got Colton and they will see that he faces his punishment for what he has done.

My problem with you bozos are...that you will sit in the courtroom and be such supporting family members for a killer. You see, I have no sympathy for the killer, he took the life from another human who did nothing wrong. Her family will no longer have Christmas, Thanksgivings, and get to enjoy her stories. Why because some punk decided his fun was more important than her life. I can't imagine the fear that woman endured as she was being killed. So I sure do feel sorry for the family of the woman, they never got that chance to say goodbye. And what I feel for the family of the punk is different. I'm sure that family never raised him to take another person's life for no good reason. But, as the mother of a 20 yr old, I wouldn't want people to feel sorry for me because I wouldn't be worthy of it. My sorrow would ultimately go to the family of the woman knowing that my son snatched her life away and I raised that monster. I also know that good people raise bad kids, but as you go to court in support of that punk know that he will go to a state pen and get meals, a warm bed, exercise, library, TV and visitation from his family, but do this knowing that this dead woman is in the hard, cold ground.
So what

I never said that I would go to court to support Colton.....As far as that goes I would go there to make sure he get's what he deserves! You are right, good people do raise bad kids. This is the case. Our family was good to Colton and our family will stay being a good family. Just not to Colton. He is the one that brought this on himself and he will have to deal with it his self!!
