Ok, my question is why did these 4 kids get nothing more than appearance tickets? They broke into someones home, they stole guns, they stole prescription pills. I realize they are minors, however if they aren't shown now that there are consequences for their actions, they will grow up and continue to do the same sort of things and probably worse.

"GOUVERNEUR A 14-year-old boy allegedly stole two handguns,$800 in cash and more than 90 OxyContin tablets from a home on County Route 12 on Dec. 21." Maybe they didn't break in, maybe the owner's were home and just let them walk away with all this stuff.

By law, the most cops can do Is issue a 14 year old a ticket for what he was charged with. Nothing more they can do.

My point was there should be more than can be done and it wasn't just a 14 year old, there was also a 16 year old and a 17 year old. If kids are not made to face consequences for things like this, they will continue to do the same things over and over and maybe worse.

The consequences will be determined by the court not the police. If you don't like the results then, vote for new DA or judge or write your legislator for new laws!

Cops can also issue a JD appearance ticket to family court for minors. I see that happening in this case.

Murder is a whole different story. At age 14-15 they would sent to the county jail. But not for the arrests mentioned here. Not trying to be rude, but look it up.
