The fact that you people sit on your computers and talk shit is pathetic. They served time in jail and are dealing with consequences...(jail, and probably no basketball career ever again) So why don't you mind your own buisness and move on with your own life and not worry about Kyles. And to bring up his mother is just rude and stupid. She had been talking about moving to Mchenry for basketball for years... before kyle entered high school even. It was better for his basketball career. They stayed in Antioch for a fews reasons which are none of your buisness. You clearly don't know kyle because he did play football more than just sophmore year. Why don't you stop being a catty smack talking asshole and get a life. Kyle was outstanding at basketball and who cares if it was free throws... he makes them! jealousy is an ugly trait kid. so don't bring up his basketabll abilities. Thank you!

@ Shutup- Since his time in jail, Kyle has also excelled at tossing salad and pillow biting. He told me he really as acquired a taste for man juice.

Gees, times must be truly rough ALL over to go and to rob a Burger King and then to get caught. It was for the best, if they had gotten away with it, it may have been a home invasion next. Good job McHenry Police. For a change. And it does matter whether a fake gun was used. It is a way to get their feet wet for bigger things and this is just how this gets started. We should not "feel sorry" for them because they frightened the people who have to work there and it isn't fair to them either. It is not lie Burger King is the employees biggest aspiration in life to work and then to have these kids run salt in the wound. It takes discipline just to arrive to work on time. Perhaps we should pray that they will not do this again and that this will not be a on-going way of life. I am pretty sure that the employees did not know that the gun was fake at the time. 18 is not a kid either. At 18, we knew the difference between , okay, bringing a gun (real or imagined) and scaring the hell out of a bunch of hard working people who serve many of you on this board, is not the way to interact with society. Perhaps they could have applied to work there instead of robbing the place. This was planned with foresight and intent. 17 is pediatric age according to the American Association of Pediatrics. We just cannot Molly Coddle an 18 year old or any one for committing a crime. regardless if the gun was not real, their intent was to rob these people. If each of us would go and ask those employees how it felt at the moment for 4 healthy and quick and strong looking young men to rush in there and scream and probably used foul language and made them get on the floor, I'd think that our violin playing toward these young men would more or less change. I guess the best point to make, if this isn't clear enough, what if this were YOU who were comfronted by 4 bold and hyper young men in your face with a gun (again, would you know if it were real). This type of crime (whether people were physically hurt or not) causes significant trauma and anxiety, the type that changes one's entire outlook on the rest of us to where we would insult them and call them "paranoid". You just do not get over a thing like that. Murder or not, this is just short of it and if they had a real gun, what then? "Oh, they were young and they did not mean to pull the trigger and it was the workers' fault for being at the wrong place at the wrong time?" this is how callous we have become as a society. while I agree that where the heck did race play into this, is foolish and retarded. Focus on the facts. For all of us, would you like for these guys to come up and comfront YOU at the ATM machine on your way home from work? They became gun toting gang members when they intended to ROB an establishment. They were being arrogant and used their athletic ability to bully these workers and this is evil. They are already hardened because they sure did not give a damned about how these fellow community members feel. High School is the place where right from wrong should be sowed in their lives. They called the shots on this one. sorry, I am not feeling for this. This was just effing wrong. We couldn't pull this crap growing up and no one felt sorry about it. I guess we are just a different generation because this is not "okay" to me.

And pardon me for my typos, I was a bit ticked off for the clueless protections over soon-to-be criminals getting their feet wet for the real thing. They weren't stupid and that was the point. They figured that they could get away with this because they were atlethic and they were bullies for doing this. Everyone has a story. We ALL have a story, but you know what, we change our stories as we grow up. It isn't as if they were in the fifth grade and brought a Batman gun with a little flag that said "Bang" and it wasn't as if it were Halloweeen. This was a criminal act and it was cruel and scary because this is probably the first time that they were actually caught. They were getting ready for the real thing in the future and then what would we all be saying...Save So and So, raise funds for the tot crim. What are we becoming here? They ruined their own careers all by themselves and they got off pretty easy. Maybe they will go to school and truly study Criminal Justice or become a Fire fighter and save the lives of others rather than to victimize others. They may not have committed this crime alone, but as a group, they declared themselves a gang the moment they stormed in there and terrorized those employees. THEY did not deserve that. At All. They are not being paid enough as it is to have to endure some jerks arrogantly causing them all psychological problems. I do not care if this does not make me popular with them. I am not in HIgh School (Thank God) in these days. If I were, I would elect to home school it if this is what is graduating out of the schools today. We are all up for some choppy ass waters.

OKAY FOLKS MAYBE SOME OF US SHOULD RE-READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE TO UNDERSTAND JUST HOW EVIL THIS CRIME REALLY WAS. NOTE HOW STRATEGIZED THIS ROBBERY WAS. THIS WAS AN ACT OF COMMUNITY TERRORISM AND DO NOT THINK FOR A MOMENT THAT IF ANY ONE OF YOU WERE WORKING THERE OR WAITING FOR A FRIEND THAT THESE GUYS WOULD HAVE ASSAULTED ONE OF YOU (this is for those who are playing the ensemble at the Boston Pops Orchestra on just how sad that this was for the criminals). Go on Folks, I already know that some of you do not give a rat's booty, however, perhaps this will adjust a different light in re-reading exactly what these young MEN did. 18 is the age to vote. If you are old enough to vote in the United States, you are no longer a juvenile or a "child" or just "kids" as some of you lovingly stated.

"These were not gun toting gang members, they were high school athletes. Young, stupid children that made a decision that will change their lives and their families lives forever." (This is a quote from our very bleeding heart member "just a parent from..(drum roll please..."Lake Villa" (the village where on the real estate listings that this area has 0 crimes 0 thefts 0 Assaults...THAT quote was just golden when you read the following article......

Four teens charged in Burger King robbery

By Jameel Naqvi
Four teens robbed a McHenry Burger King around 12 a.m. Monday, but were apprehended just minutes later, police said.

Three teens wearing black hooded sweatshirts and bandannas went to the rear of the restaurant at 2180 N. Richmond Road while a fourth teen waited in a red getaway car, according to police.

The teens overpowered two employees who were taking out the garbage, police said. They hit one of the employees in the face; he later was treated for minor injuries on the scene, according to police. While one of the robbers held the employee who had been assaulted outside, the other two forced the second employee to let them in the restaurant through the back door, police said.

When they got inside, the robbers brandished what appeared to be a handgun, demanded cash and fled after getting it, police said.

They were pulled over a few minutes later by an officer who noticed that one of the teens matched the description of one of the robbers, police said.

“Based on the officer’s observations and evidence found in the vehicle, there was sufficient evidence to initiate the arrest,” Deputy Chief Robert Lumber said.

All four were charged with aggravated robbery and theft, which carry typical sentences of four to 15 years in prison if convicted. The cash was recovered.

According to police, those charged were Marco A. Delgadillo and Kyle D. Melton, both 18. Matthew S. Avonts and Patrick J. Casagrande, both 17, were also charged. Delgadillo was also charged with aggravated battery. All the charges are felonies.

Police determined the guns used in the robbery were actually toys.

All four teens are scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing on today. Until then, they are being held at the McHenry County jail.

But aren't you doing the very same thing as we are? Didn't you sit at YOUR computer to write this comment? So, aren't you really reflecting your own actions in what you just wrote in your very first sentence?

By the way, this is our business because we have to live around some jerks who think that this is just the high life to go beat up employees at a fast food place in where they are paid pickles for the work that they do (which is back breaking) and that others were assaulted. Oh yes, this IS our business, It is in the paper for a reason.

People work hard to keep their jobs in this crappy economy and on top of that have to be victimized while they now will end up working in the very same establishment NOW (if they are hired any where for this stunt and ASSAULT).

Who threw their careers away that night. No one is jealous for pete's sake, are you just off your marbles or what? No thank you to this foolish statement. No one is going to stand for this mess in their town and it is ALL our business and we had better make it our business or else this criminal crap will continue on and on.

Many of you are tax payers, and I do not think that not ONE of you would appreciate a group of athletes (FOUR OF THEM WITH HOODS AND BANDANAS !!AT THAT) running full FORCE into your face as you are coming home from work or just going to the store. This is an old story but for some reason it was in my mail box as IF it were a new story. Topix sent this to me for a reason, so there you have it.

Oh, and did you even mention the victims' names at all? They do not count? They aren't people like us? Real bright you intellectual GIANT you!

Well, there you go, Kyle and the dead beat bandana FOUR earned this statement fair and square. They committed a FELONY and so maybe they are being educated at what being bullied is really all about.

And who cares if they were 17(said one of the posts), the police obviously discerned that they were old enough to drive get away cars and punch people in the face being trained athletes who are younger and quicker on the feet than these employees.

Maybe their pediatric asses will learn that robbing any establishment with a toy gun (or let's get deep and mention "real gun") will get you 20 and if they commit an assualt the charges increase and so will THEIR time with some hard-asses.

I cannot believe the commentary here for those who actually felt sorry for their careers. If they cared about their careers so much, they should have been their butts at home in bed. What were they out at 12 am for if curfew is 11pm on the week nights IF they were " Just kids"?????? Un (Bleeping) believable , right????

Good on ya for your comment. You were even being nice to them in saying this, but if the shoe fits, ram it up their rumps! What bullies and d**k Wads!

maybe you should all realize this crime took place well over a year ago, they have all went to court and "paid the piper". We have all done something we are not too proud of in our lives and time will tell if they have learned from it or not. I think its time to let this go and focus on something more important. There has got to be something more interesting out there to comment on than a crime that took place over a year ago, where punishements have been had, time has been taken, etc. Im not minimizing the crime at all but it is over.

1. Legally, using a fake gun in a robbery is the same as using a real gun. This was an armed robbery.
2. The 18 year old is the one who sucker punched my 17 year old son twice in the face. My son was 6'4", 240 pounds at the time. He only went to one knee. It's the "gun" that stopped him.
3. My daughter had a "gun" stuck in her face. My son had to quit his job as he was too freaked out to return to work. This isn't over. It'll be with them the rest of their lives.
4. At 18 you can vote, join the Army, or get the death penalty.
The dems are so intent on disarming the American public that Sen. Feinstein just said if a Concealed Carry (or open carry for that matter) had been in the theater, the people could be caught in a gun fight. Uh, it WAS a gun fight? However it was a one-sided gun fight. Lambs to the slaughter. What if BK had a gun in the office? What if the cops had shown up sooner? What if a hostage was taken? What if the hostage was accidently shot by the cops? What if the 4 idiots were shot? Or killed? This was a brazen attempt to get something not worked for. To feed off others. A parasite on society. This wasn't a one time stupid idea. There's evidence there was a previous robbery. P.S. The cops read Facebook everyday.

@local talent agency .. that's a mature statement or is that a threat and if so, to who? I agree with the statement by "its over". They have each been before a judge and all served their time. Time to let this sleeping dog sleep. Everyone makes bad decisions and everyone does deserve second chances. You, nor anyone else is God here. They will have to face the real judge in the end.

@crimebusters- No, just going for dramatic effect. But those that feel that justice was not served will rejoice when they are again exposed for what they really are.
