Is it sad? Yes. Is it a horrible? Yes. Could and should it have been avoidable? Absolutely. However, I have not come to the resolution that trying this young person as an adult is the right answer. The host and lack of adult supervision is more at fault than this immature child. Did she make a mistake - NO DOUBT. However, she will live with this the rest of her life. No I don't think that is punishment enough. I just hope and pray she gets the help and support she needs. My prayers go out to her and her family as well as the victim's family.

She did an adult crime and knew better so she should have been tried as an adult. We get so teary eyed and sympathetic for privileged white kids but you all want to throw black kids into the depths of hell for being black in America. This girl should have gotten at least 20 years. Remember Nathan Defrank? He got a slap on the wrist for manslaughter and went onto be a professional criminal and is now finally serving his time

Yup... I remember him. Him and his family lived right behind me... I still remember going to elementary school with his youngest brother and then middle and high with Brad.
