I understand these guys are being questioned about stealing from weddings and other parties in the valley over this past summer.

Any truth to this.

These kids are nothing more than thugs, and i hear that abby mead dirtbag is involved as well. What they did is an obvious crime, and worse off, its an assault on the community. It's been proven that when a place appears like crap, it only gets worse because people follow suit. Thanks for instilling fear into the community because you were short on cash when your dealer called in your debt. Rot in jail, maybe you'll improve, but probably not, you're not going to get any livable job with a felony on your records

For one, you're all discussing stuff that's none of your business. And you wonder why things happen to people these days. I know Seth and Anthony personally and they're decent kids. You see, thatÂ’s the trouble with you people, every time you see a problem you turn it into a big issue. They all made a mistake and now they're all going to pay for it but that doesn't make them horrible individuals. Another thing, they're only being accused of that gun nonsense lol. They have not yet been found guilty of it, along with the other crimes. So, on that note, slow down cowboy's. ;)
A mistake is an error in judgement. You are correct. They made multiple mistakes. I wonder what part of each of these burglaries seemed like a good idea at the time. Taking a candy bar from the corner store is a mistake. Entering someone else's house and taking things that don't belong to you, repeatedly, certainly seems like a conscious decision. The problem with our society is that we try to excuse everyone's behaviors and not take responsibility for wrongdoing any longer. I might respect the three of them if they honestly took responsibility for what they did and worked to make it right to the people they did it to. Doubt that will happen. Their parents will get them lawyers to get them out of this-again no consequences for their actions.

they are lucky they didn't break into my home because they wouldn't have made it out unharmed!

I suppose you could argue that everyone sitting in jail made a stupid mistake at one time or another. You must be a lawyer for these thugs. Don't try to make them look like sweet innocent kids who made a mistake. Let them suffer the punishment of the law for their 'mistake'. Then you can be assured that they won't make another such 'mistake' in the future, if they are indeed sweet innocent kids who made a 'mistake'. Otherwise, welcome to the system boys.

Bill Keeler had a theft at an event at his house this past summer.

If you look at the Syracuse area news, 3 teens the same age from the Baldwinsville area broke into a house and were surprised by a resident, they killed him.

I suppose they were good kids that just made a mistake also.

If these Ilion kids didn't get caught, each crime would have been bolder than the last.

GUESS WHO... Abby Mead here. Just for your information I was NOT invloved in ANY of this. Matter of fact, I warned my boyfriend to stay away from all of them. I also told him that if he got involved with drugs I was going to dump him. So before you go jumping to conclusions get your stuff straight. I might have a crappy past but Im much older and much wiser than I used to be. Talking crap about a 17 year old girl is pretty dirtbaggish to me. Thats all I have to say. Goodbye.

They defiantly did something stupid, no question. But let me remind you, these are young men that were just about to start their lives. I'm not saying feel bad for them or anything like that. But I know these guys, deep down they're amazing people. Anthony has had a difficult home life for sometime. Seth is a great kind kid once you get to know him, and I heard he was only the getaway driver. My senses tell me that Seth never wanted to be there in the first place. I don't care what any of you think, you don't know them, so don't judge them. You don't know what they have been through in their lives. I agree they should absolutely pay for what they did. But, honestly I'm praying that god gives them a pass, a second chance. Good luck young men.

I know for a fact that these 3 are great kids. Seth would never hurt a fly, he treats his girlfriend like an absolute princess and was obviously scared considering he even hid it from her. Keep Abby's name out of this because you guys don't know how she feels. I don't know Anthony and waz very well but as far as I've heard, they've always been amazing friends to all that have had the pleasure to be close with them. Don't judge a book by its cover, just because you hear things doesn't necessarily mean that's all there is to it. They simply were misguided and took a step down the wrong path, but all the people talking shit should probably realize that people make mistakes. They can easily turn their lives around and show everyone that they are better than what they did. You'll all see.

I'm sure God will give them a pass. Hopefully the law won't

I'm sure he was scared. Murderers get scared too. Just because one gets scared doesn't mean sht. All the kids smoking pot up on the park are amazing friends too. But that doesn't mean squat either, now does it. It may be the first time they got caught, but that doesn't mean they're good kids just because they were never caught before. Inner city kids had a harsh life too, does that mean we should be lenient on them when they commit a crime? Excuses are like azzhols - everybody has one. Speaking of that, don't drop the soap boys.

Mr. Gay will have a wonderful time in jail with that last name. Just wait until they find out about the lost shoe. Read the news story if you don't know what I mean. He'll me nicknamed Cinderella. Or sweetlips.

How would you feel if they broke into your grandparents house? Would you still call them good kids? What if they used the 357 and accidentally shot someone? Still good kids? Where do you draw the line? In your mind a good kid can do just about anything and be forgiven. Perhaps its your lack of holding them accountable that is society's problem. Hypothetically where is the line you think someone has to cross to be held accountable? What if these were good kids from utica who didn't have a good family life?
They willfully participated in one, if not several break ins.
A thief is about as low as you can get.

And this is exactly why people get hurt or killed, because people can't mind their own business these days. Curiosity does in fact kill the cat, so they say. Why won't all you "adults" stop talking shit about seventeen year old kids WHO YOU DON"T KNOW on some immature petty gossip site. Now that's "LOW" you cowards. Grow the fuck up.
