So....whats the difference between a "Punk" and a "Thug", if they commit the same crimes?

People that have so many things going for them and to think they have to become thieves. Give them the maximum penalty allowed and then as part of their punishment have them pick up trash wearing a sign that says ' I am a thief' so everyone that passes them will know. I bet their families are proud of them. Their crimes have really shaken that little town so it affects a lot of people not just them.
There is no excuse for them.

There is a difference between punk and thug. The latter uses a gun in connection with the crime. That said, there is no difference in a criminal no matter the race. These pieces of crap should be placed in stocks for all the passing public to see and ridicule.

A punk is a criminal committing property crimes. A thug is a criminal committing violent crimes. In any case, they should be locked up.

Poquoson has it's own areas of white trash just like every other town or city ... Messick for example.

I just know that the writer made a mistake with the name of the city, he must have meant Phoebus, cause we all know that the Poquoson "Good Ole' Boy's" children would/could not commit a crime.

7 Months is a long time to gather evidence and make arrests.

I'm just wondering... if the Police started to investigate these burglaries in January, and they are just now making the arrests and it's almost August... is that such a good thing?

I wonder how many crimes would have been PREVENTED if some of these arrests were made months ago.

Poquoson doesn't need the community center because these guys are killing each other. But these guys will be "taken care of". The Poquoson Bubba's will right the wrong.

These spoiled youngsters will probally
never even go to jail. I look around poquoson and see nothing but lazy white folks who care for only themselves. You can buy cocaine and herion and all the weed you want from these children right here in this fine trashy city of poquoson. They are no different than any other town or city in this nation that houses the rich. This nation only provides liberty and justice for the rich. Poor
people don't have a chance in poquoson or any where in this sad nation.

yep another fine job by the PPD - if their police forece weren't home asleep half the time then they could have arrest these POS's many months ago. Looks like the new police chief is right on top of things. Probably to busy guarding Whitehouse Cove.

your right the city officials are to busy keeping thing hush, hush cause they don't want their prestine little city to get a bad rep. I'm surprised they let WAVY TV 10 in last night or even allowed DP to print this article. there are probably more drugs and thugs in Poquoson than there is in the entire Peninsula. Just because their parents are rich and protected. Know what they say money tlaks BS walks.

I am truly appalled & dumbfounded by the ignorance posted in the comments above...I was born and raised in Poquoson and although I no longer live there, I have to defend my hometown...first crime is crime no matter where it is commited but to assume because they are from Poquoson and that only rich people live there is applalling...I know some of these guys personally and money is not went steered them to crime...never having any direction their entire lives is the issue here and now they have turned to crime...being "rich" has nothing to do with it...I am pretty sure you can buy drugs of any kind, in any city in the US...All of you should reread what you have wrote, aren't you just as trashy for saying these things about a city or their people, very unfair!

What exactly are you saying? Are you trying to defend that Poquoson is NOT where the wealthier people on the Peninsula live?

Why is it Appalling to say that Rich people live in Poquoson... that is a compliment... actually... that is a FACT.

I've never heard someone defend the fact that their Hometown is known for being "Rich."
