Brian Harvey started getting into trouble in his early teens and as the years went by the trouble and degree of crimes escalated. He (I believe) was then kicked out of Brantly which was no surprise. It was his destiny. As far as Mitch is concerned, he was just a stupid kid who wanted to buy some marijuana and he put his faith in Brian, who he thought was a friend. I'm sure Brian knew that the plan was to rob Mitch and that there was a gun going to be involved. I don't think that Brian thought there would be a killing but that is what you have to think about when you bring a gun into play. As they say, "when you play with fire you get burned." Brian chose the easy way in life and he had many chances to wake up but instead chose not to. It's hard to feel sorry for him when someone is dead because of his actions and that includes his participation afterwards and his not going to the police. He just was hoping to get away with it all and that's not quite what happened and now he has the rest of his life being incarcerated to think about what he did. There is really nothing more to say except that a young mans life is gone and three others have gone and wasted theirs.

Even years later, you all sound like morons. If you weren't at the trial, if you never knew Brian, you have no room to judge and in my opinion are the true definition of scum. Mitch was Brian's friend. Brian was doing a favor because Mitch wanted a pound of weed TO SELL. What went on after that was out of both Mitch and Brian's control. For all of you who are pointing out that Brian "confessed" in that tape, you are ignorant. If you were actually there and HEARD the tape, you would know that the tape was 95% inaudible even after Nasa tried to clear it up. So what you THINK was said is exactly that, what you THINK it said. End of story. If any of you were in that situation, especially at that age, you wouldn't know what to do either. Cut the kid a break, he was a kid who made a mistake and originally was sentenced to life to pay for it. Life was too hard of sentence for someone that young, who had his whole life ahead of him. In case you didn't know, Stephen pulled the gun on him that day too, and his life was spared. So for anyone reading this now, years later, I would ask you for one thing. Forgiveness. Because I'm sure Brian would ask for it if he were given the opportunity. He's learned his lesson and yes it was unfortunate what it took for that to happen, but what if it were you?
