What a moron. Big shocker that he found his friend at a basketball game. Big tuff guy, wanting to be a gangster. I hope they give him at lease half of the maximum. 3 or so.

A basketball player on a "scholarship" and an idiot. Typical. They should just execute these two "geniuses" and save the world some trouble.

Teens do some stupid things. Remember all the lame-brained ideas you came up with to raise some money to buy toys? These guys made some really, really stupid decisions in an effort to raise money for God knows what. My only fear is that they will go to prison and learn how to successfully rob a bank, and may pick up some bad habits and hardened outlooks on life. Do you think they will be so apt to be apologetic and polite the next time they go for some loot?
Give them both minimal terms and have them do 400 hours of community service talking to youth about screwing up their lives and how not to do the same. Hard prison time will only hurt the situation and drive them down a path too often glorified by Gangsta rap and movies. Remember, they are kids.

Why not rob the casino that is across the street in Danbury. They will now have enough time to think about their actions in prison.
