Stupid ideas? You bet I had them. Robbing a bank wasn't even close to anything I, nor 99% of the rest of the population, ever considered.

So you want them to spend just a little easy time behind bars, and then go out to spread the word to young, vulnerable kids? Yeah, how's this for a speech: "Rob a bank, get caught, get a light sentence, now all I have to do is talk to you punks and I'm free to try it again."

They're "just kids"? Tell that to the people who had a shotgun shoved in their faces. I don't think they felt safe because of their youthful innocence.

Everybody knows you should gas up the car BEFORE you rob the bank. :-)

Now this is a good example why it is so ridiculous that 18 year olds are considered of the age of majority. It also shows the mentality of the typical
18 year old, which is one of great immaturity. Young people in this country
should not be considered adults until they are 21. Look at all the money that
is wasted on teenagers after they go to college. They drink themselves to death, engage in all sorts of problematic activities, study as little as they need to get by, and then demand of everyone that they are adults and should be treated accordingly. This kid should remain under supervision until he is 25.

The 18 y.o. was a stellar scholar, athlete & student leader. Comes from a very nice family too---I can't imagine what they must be going through. The 16 y.o., while personable & well-liked by his classmates is trouble with a capital T. Both kids have a slew of interested adults in their lives & a lot of support & encouragement. I just can't imagine what they were thinking or how they ever conceived of such a plan. They are now ROYALLY screwed & deserve whatever punishment they're dealt. I would imagine the 16 y.o. will be tried as an adult too. What a complete WASTE.

My brother played AAU basketball with Anthony. This story comes as a complete shock. His family was very, very nice. His parents had good jobs, a nice home. The entire basketball community is wondering what in the world was he thinking. It's just a complete shock.

An 18 yr.old is considered to be adult, a rather stupid one, but still an adult and needs to pay the penalty for his misdeeds. Needed to think about consequences before doing something this stupid.

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.
