it is what it is - and she did it.
A minor that could be judged as an adult.
One can only hope.

Parents do the best they can, when the child decides they are going to do what they want and when they want - sometimes there is nothing a Parent can do - DCF calls it abuse when parents try to correct and change their childrens' behavior!

Explain to me why we have to give these people, that have so little cosnideration of otehrs, a second chance? There is no justice if gang members and oterh predators get a second chance.

Keep the rest of us safe by throwing the keys away on all gang members. Better yet, in Florida we still have capital punishment - use ift more often to deter creeps liek thsi one.

PS Before I hear any sob stories about unhappy you, abusive parenst, etc. Forget it. I was molested by my father, grew up in a bad part of Brooklyn (NY) where crime was the norm and still made it to mainstream society. I made it despite my setbacks.

Isnt it about time we as a country do something about all these gangs? I say send them to Iraq and let them do the fighting and let our soldiers, sailors and airmen come home. Hopefully we can thin out these gang bangers
I love your idea. How do we get the military to formalize yoru idea ?

Actually, I do believe that some young criminals are given a choice to do time or serve in the military as a means to straighten out tehir lives. The proplem has been, as I heard it, that their otehr military personnel are not notified that they may have a criminal in their group.

I would putthem in teh infantry so that if they at least they do so serving their country rather serving their gang.

I feel sorry for the family of this
demonic child.
They left Bosnia, probably trying to
find a better life for their children and this is how she ends,
skanking around for drug money, gang member and a murderer....
God have mercy on her mother!

If you're talking about the girls in this case, wouldn't that be kinda moot? Judging from the picture, she seems as Anglo as can be.
She is from Poland or Lithuania or some other crudhole and came here to kill and murder. In her country her nickname was CRAZY (Luda). the US should make immigrants take mental health exams and toss out anyone that is crazy. Let them go crazy in their own hometown.

You shouldnt judge. You might think you know it all but you have no idea. None of ya do and you sit there saying nasty things. She made a mistake, and then did the only thing she could do afterward. I say good on her for at least facing up to what she did.

She wasnt crazy. And she's from Bosnia, a war riddled country where she probably saw and experienced things you couldnt even imagine. She did something completely wrong and stupid, now shes owning it and paying the price. You can't judge what you don't understand.

Has Orlando gotten that bad? I lived there back in 95-97 and here was never anything even close to this happening. Florida really has become a $hithole. As much as I would hate to leave friends and family behind, moving might be a good option to keep my kids away from this kind of garbage.
this maya chic was the same murderous trick who was willing to LIE and testify that casey anthony "confessed" to chloroforming her daughter.

showing no regard for opening the wounds of her own victim's family - maya's actions proved she is incapable of remorse.

waste.....huge waste.
