I grew up with eric, he lived 2 blocks away from me. I've known him since foruth grade, we hung out everyday and he was one of my best friends. he would NEVER intentionally do what he did...He was influenced by the people around him, we told him not to hang out with those scumbags but he didn't listen, and we stopped chillen with him because of that. But don't get me wrong, no one made him do anything, it was ultimatley his decision and he messed up BIG TIME, and now his life is ruined, plus his Dad just died and he couldn't even go to his funeral. He was friends with Dane, and it was f**ked up of him to set his friend up like that, but he was into some other sh** at the time and didn't have his head on straight. But I can guarantee you he didn't think or want anyone to get hurt, he just wanted the money from robbing Dane. He was 100% wrong for what he did, but 99% of the people online right now talking sh** don't know Eic or Dane or even what REALLY happened, not just what the papers said. Eric's house also got raided and EVERYTHING stolen from it because his parents were away when he got locked up (and we're not talking about a 2 bedroom cottage here) his family are some of the nicest people in the world and brought him up right, he justmade a bad decision that will ruin him forever.
