I wonder if they had anything to do with the copper theft from the elementary school AC units.

All three of them look healthy, so why weren't they working for a living instead of mucking with other peoples property. Oh that's right, they might have to work a job that pays $8 an hour (an honest wage).

Too bad the 3 of them didn't get ZAPPED and save us the trouble of trying them in court. It's obvious they have some real low IQ's to pull something so dangerous. We don't need these idiots walking among us.

Probation violation huh? Sounds like these thugs should have never been let out the first time.

What a shame. These men had everything handed to them, doors opened, and good jobs for the asking. People down in Newport News begging for jobs.

Instead they chose to follow a path of crime. Can't help but wonder what sort of parents raised kids like this.

Come on, HG...begging for jobs? Hanging out on the street corner with their homies in the middle of a work day DOES NOT SEEM LIKE BEGGING TO ME!!

And how do you know that they had everything handed to them? Or had doors opened and good jobs for the asking? Do you know these guys? Let me guess - you think that just because they are white guys that they were born with silver spoons in their mouths. You truly are an ignorant man.

These guys are crooks - and should be prosecuted for their crimes. I am not making any excuses for them, but don't just assume that they had easy lives.

Just so there are not comebacks. I think this losers should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

They will probably get another slap on the hand because they turned themselves in. They should be punished to the fullest plus some extra for all crimes committed. People are getting away with too much of their wrongdoings, that is some of the reason for so much violence and stealing in the world today.

You are a joke. Doesn't sound like your typical, everybody makes mistakes and deserves a second chance rant. Oh thats right, they are white. You are just as racist as the idiots you stir up on here. Unlike you, there is not anybody defending their criminal acts. How do you know what type of background these losers came from? You wouldn't happen to be judging them based on color would you?

HaHa! But...they are white so their parents are white and should be held at least partially responsible for raising idiots. I wonder what HG is really saying about his own race, when he says that white parents are to be held responsible for their kids actions, but black parents get a pass. Does he think black parents are up to the parental change?

Yolanda,
It's "typical white redneck trailer trash". Get it right. OK? Oh, yes, they also happen to be "scum".

Now, my opinion is that we should exile them to the copper mines for life.

What if they kicked out the hospital power and killed people in surgery? Or if the police network were affected during the backup power startup. There could have been a thousand events caused by their thoughtless crime, all bad.

What a bunch of jerks. Oh, and yep, these here is white boys. Just goes to show that Satan doesn't seem to care what color you are long as he wins...

Nothing in any of these articles says anything about the people who are paying them for the stolen goods. While what these idiots did is criminal and stupid, shouldn't there be some penalty or fine for the people or companies that knowingly buy the copper items from these criminals? Surely they would have to know that someone showing up wanting to sell copper materials that are obviously stolen from an electric substation or from light poles on the roadside and such aren't salvaging materials from a renovation project at their home. Stop the money, the crime will slow up and/or disappear.

The mind of a criminal is strange. Why steal something then turn yourself in? Even very serious felons turn themself in for murder. Murder is bad, but think about the mindset of the murderer. He turns himself in, he is going to get life. Like the judge is going to knock off 3 years of a 99 year sentence just because he turned himself in??
