I need to understand.... why would I not be given the right to comment after this story: "Hempstead man charged with selling guns", but be given the chance to comment after this one on a bank robbery? Can everyone say 'protected class'.
as if an answer is needed? Idiotday has a policy: if whites are involved in the crime or it's something about the Catholic Church, all bashing allowed.

not so for minorities and Muslims.

first and foremost i find it difficult to believe that many of you can be ignorant just because this young man made a mistake. i'm sure that no one on this earth is perfect, but i do not say that to excuse his behavior. and the comment about where his parents are? parents can only try to make their children follow their morals and beliefs, you can only guide your children so much but at the end of the day they are in complete and total control of the direction, and places they wish to go. all anyone can do is hope that these upcoming generations and our generations become wiser. we have all learned from our mistakes and things can be corrected.

Nonsense. These are strapping young men, perfectly capable of working, they just want the easy way out. Quick money.

matt was a nd probably still is a horribly addicted drug addict. he lost it in the 11th grade. ppl tried 2 help him, but wat do kids know. maybe we would have tried harder, forced rehab,if we were told he would get so low. as for his family, cant say much except he has a low life brother nd another ones whose new yorks finest. hmmm seems kinda odd 3 brothers 2 are drug abusing losers nd ones a cop....interesting.yea these kids really had it tough growing up in suburbia with 2 much liberty nd opportunities. regardless i wish him the best. life in jail is hard. for the inmate and the loved ones. god bless matty

i knew joe since i was 13...all you cops out there get back on your high horse and stay there cause your really making a "difference" ALLLLLLL the Wall Street Corruption happens w/o a trace of responsibility...don't blame the victims tough guys...you put us in this position...1 out of 4 Americans now receive food stamps...but we're the bad guys....the biggest crooks i this country wear suits! I'm not saying he doesn't deserve the sentence b/c he didn't even need the money like that...but America took a big dump on the middle class, shipped out the jobs, got us involved in wars, flooded our streets with drugs and guns and completely looked the other way BLAME THE N.R.A! Without the guns crime would be the least of out worries....CAPITALISM FAILED!! WAke up america Greedy bastards

For all of you who speak bad about Matt, do you really know him at all. He has a drug problem no one could ever help him with. He does know better but when your going through withdrawls you don't care about anything but the next fix. Maybe if the goverment wasn't so money hungry then he would of went to a good treatment center that could finally help him. But, instead he has ended the lives of all who love him because he now taken away from us. So who's truly to blame, I don't think matt is.
