I know Josh Ready and Chris Kroeger, I never in a million years would have thought them capable of such crimes. Just to show you, you really never know someone.

I'm struggling with the sickness of the incomprehension of this tragedy. WHY did it happen?

Life is rough enough without the insanity of intentional & meaningless crimes.

Too many deaths are close to Verbena or Chilton County in general. What's wrong with us? Is there something I can do to help the town of Verbena be a safe place?

Will the MAJORITY of the community and surrounding area ever become active and involved persons? I really commend the communities and neighborhoods where the residents were living in fear (drugs, murder, & crime) and they pulled together and made their neighborhoods safe again. Can we?

That "victim": might have been an alien from some other planet, did all you people stop to think about that , maybe deserved to die, and I am proud of those guys for killing i think everyone should be considered innocent until proven guilty, then they should be lionized as heroes. Speaking of heros, why do Yankees call their sandwiches "heroes," that seem disrespectful to real heroes, like JOsh and Chris and all those losers/heroes who died in 9/11 and Muslims and talking pigs,

Someone gets murdered before your eyes, then the murderer points the gun at you and says "help me burn this body or I'll kill you and your whole family". This person actually happens to be one of your friends so you know that he knows your family and where they reside. So, do you help burn the body? Or do you look at the murderer, who just killed someone in front of you, and refuse? Josh chose to help so 1. He wouldn't be killed and 2. His family wouldn't be harmed. After hearing what really happened, how do you feel about Josh ,who should be charged for the desecration of a ? corpse, being charged with a Class A Felony for Murder? What would you have done differently if faced with the "wrong place, wrong time" scenario? I hope to see responses because if there are not any, then you are just as guilty as Josh. Meaning, who wouldn't have chosen what Josh did?

what about the other boy that was there and witnessed what happened, who went to the police AFTER he was threatened by BOTH boys that they would kill him? your argument is invalid. they are both guilty with blood on their hands, the time in prison was their choice when they pulled the trigger, it was all planned out.
