They are all old enough and big enough to know right from wrong. They should all receive the same punishment as an adult. They should be made to pay for all the windows they shot out and pay that lady for pain and suffering better than that let somebody shot each one of them about 10 times each with a bb gun so they can see what it feels like. They should have been at home doing homework r going to work somewhere instead of acting like a bunch of idiots. Suppose that had of been real bullets they could have killed somebody. I think they should all pay dearly for their actions. Looks like to me they are headed down the wrong road but they need to get it right before it is to late.

Let the victims light up thier little young arsses with a bb gun. It might change thier mind. Better yet, let mom and dad pay for all the damage and light em up with a switch.

I am 18 years old and I got to school with these kids and not only do I find this entire situation appalling, but insulting. This is the reason many adults no longer trust teenagers. I have never vandalized some-one elses property, nor have I assaulted anyone, let alone an elderly woman! I spend my weekends reading, doing my work, or going for walks, and I'm positive these kids have more opportunities to find more constructive activities than these here, I don't fully blame the parents, but they need to act more responsibly and know what their children are doing.

Maybe if you knew where your kid was going, or keeping a closer eye on him, he wouldn't have done this! Give him more constructive activities to do! There is no justification of what they did.

But in the same instance you can blame all you want this is America the land of the free and the low life's but he does not come from a bad family.
Thank you
Simply "talking about the danger of these weapons" is NOT good enough. Why did he even have access to these weapons? How did you not know your son was hanging out with a bad crowd? He could have killed someone or caused an accident. Your time would be better served spending MORE time with your child and being a part of his life than online talking about this.

"they" as in the kids who were the one holding the gun and the driver correct? I know for a fact that 1 of the kids in there Demari, would have not acknowledged this idea. He Probably had no ride home from somewhere and the kid thats driving came up with the idea to shoot cars and Demari was stuck in the backseat, and had no part in this. Yes he was in the back; But the thing you dont know is he couldve been like " I dont think this is a good idea " , or " You guys should stop and let me out of this. " If They Were to have real bullets they wouldn't have had the idea to shoot and aim around. Some of them yes are immature, but i think they know which guns to shoot and what not.

Ahaha Jordan, Demari was just in the backseat. He didnt shoot anyone or anything. He didnt even touch the gun.- AZN.

I'm sure he wouldn't have been arrested if he would have done the right thing and turned the people who did it in.

A BB gun is a deadly weapon? What's a slingshot? A weapon of mass destruction? Some of you folks need to take an aspirin or something.
Yes, they did something stupid. Yes, they should be pay for damages and be punished appropriately.
I did some pretty stupid things when I was a teenager, probably as bad as this, and up to this point haven't turned into a serial killer.
Take a deep breath and remember you were young and dumb once.

For any of you to come on here and even attempt to defend these kids or make excuses for what they did is RIDICULOUS. They know right from wrong. They chose WRONG. They need to pay for what they did. Do not defend these boys in any way, shape or form.

Folks,
I did not mean to have three entries in this blog yesterday.
I wound up posting three times, the first two were removed and then after I made the third post, they put my first two posts back. Someone was censoring my posts removed them and then they were put back for whatever reason.
The same thing happened to someone else on another blog also.
Good work

Glad they found out who did this! These kids busted out the storm door to the front of my house. I certainly understand that kids will be kids. I have two of my own, but they never did anything like this!! I feel that if they are not punished somehow they will continue on the same path. A path which could be much more serious. Everyone must face consequences for their actions. I would certainly hope that their parents don't bail them out!!!!!
