Must be all the heroin these kids have been doing. We need to stop the use of heroin around here. It's making people make terrible decisions. Lawrence used to be a really nice boy with good intentions. My daughter used to watch tell me about how good he was at handball.

You don't know anything so don't say anything. He doesn't do heroin, he just became associated with the wrong crowd. He's still a good kid.

No I heard that he leads the group. I believe she is right. I heard the same thing from my son. These kids need to stop causing problems. Plainview is a good town and it's being ruined by bad parenting and hard drugs.

I think you mothers should keep your comments to yourselves, Larry is a good kid just running with the wrong crowd. If he is so bad maybe you should keep an eye on your kids because apparently they were hanging out together. Talk about bad parenting, how about we all worry about our own kids and not everyone elses.

Obviously Larry is not a good kid. I heard this is the 5th kid he has assaulted in a month. I remember I once had a conversation with him 2 years ago and he seemed like the nicest kid in the world. I would have never seen this to be the outcome for this young man.

Can I ask you a question, you keep saying I heard, I heard where did you hear this from...apparently not a reliable source. Unless you know this first hand because your kids are very close friends with him. Stop with the gossip it's mothers day go spend time with your kids, unless they just don't want to be bothered with you!

Why don't you stop listening to rumors and mind your own business. Nobody needs your comments and you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Just because you hear something doesn't mean it's the truth, and you really shouldn't be repeating things unless you know for sure. He is a good kid with a good heart and he made a mistake, but that does not make him a bad person. You don't know the whole story so why don't you shut up and keep your stupid comments to yourself.

His won't be, but your mother's mouth probably is.

The only way for him to have some type of normal adult life is if he served a few years, just to grow up..... I have watched him grow up for over a decade, he needs true guidance, and serving a few years out of a lifetime might possibly give him a positive future, for his sake. If he walks he might kill someone....And any idiot that thinks this behavior is ok, has worse problems then Larry...And will just look like a fool...
