Punch them in their crotchable areas.

Seriously, breaking into a church, even for someone like me who doesn't attend church, is wrong (b&e is wrong anyway). They're supposed to be sacred places.

This was probably the only time these hooligans ever attended church. Throw the BOOK at them...the BIBLE, SONG BOOK...and LAW BOOK...and give them a lot of time to read all of them...BEHIND BARS.

Since this crime did not happen in Asheville and since it did not involved any Black kids, it seems that no one gives a crap. What is the deal? Why only the outpouring of disgust and hate when black kids commit crimes in our area?

I think these young men need more than a slap on the wrist and some probation, which sadly, in the end is all they'll probably receive.

How did you get this idea? I have not seen or heard anyone defending these scum bags. They just caught them yesterday. I would want the same punishment for anyone caught doing crime...white ..black...latino...asian...ind ian...Are you suggesting we should give criminals a break if they are a certain color or nationality? Should the law enforcement be less stringent toward blacks or latinos because of race? You must be a liberal, because that is the way they think.

Definitely not saying that ... give me a break! I'm saying the public that responds on these topix only seems to get outraged if the crime is committed by a black person or another minority. They act almost as if it isn't a big deal when a white person commits a crime. I read in a post earlier in the week where someone actually said, whites weren't committing crimes in Asheville, that they all were being committed by blacks and illegals, that blew me away. What I'm saying or asking, is why is there not the same outrage when a crime is committed regardless of who commits it?

what on earth are you talking about? no one has shown anything but outrage for this crime. why are you turning this into a racist issue? this crime needs to be punished to the fullest extent. you are the only one so far that has brought up color. what makes you think no one gives a crap? I believe you are way off the mark here.

It's funny how the liberals are the ones who always bring up race first. I assure you, "What You Are Saying", we are all just as outraged and even more outraged this crime happened in a sacred place! We don't care what color the criminals are, we hate this type of activity and wish they be prosecuted to the fullest extent!

A thief is a thief regardless of where he stole or what his color is...... lock these bottom feeders in a cell for a very long time. Amazing that some folks try to make race an issue about anything.

I think the public will insist these scum bags get the harshest punishment allowed and they can't cry descrimination because they are white. I hate it when criminals of any color or nationality cry descrimination . All criminals should be punished when found guilty. Bleeding heart liberals will defend a lot of them because of their color or nationality.

I agree. Take a look at the other forums regarding the two black kids from Asheville that were recently arrested. Read all of the racists comments that are posted in comparison to similar crimes by non-minorities and maybe then you will understand the post....and why the heck does someone that defends minorities have to be a liberal. I am republican but happen to value human lives...of all colors!!!

You are a race baiter, just like sharpton and jackson. You are a liberal whether you admit it or not. There are liberal republicans as well as democrats. Liberals always bring race into play every time they see an opportunity. If someone was taking up for these low class scum because they were white you might have an argument. No one has. Only the race baiters like you are doing so. You are about as disgusting as the scum that committed the crimes.

If you value human life you should be glad that someone is taking the criminals who would disrupt your life and locking them in cells.
