"They were just being teens who have nothing better to do and just made a poor decision,"

This is the explanation from the mother of one of the criminals. No wonder her son is a piece of sh*$ criminal because its her fault as well. No clue how to discipline her child. She just makes excuses for him. WHITE TRASH!!!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, but why do people leave valuable stuff in an unlocked car? I don't get it.

Although these guys are guilty of grand larceny, don't leave valuables in plain sight and lockup your cars.

False sense of security perhaps. I don't know Miller Place but I'm assuming that it's probably a nice, safe area and the residents are thinking "nothing will happen to me."

I don't have a boatload of stuff happening in my neighborhood but that doesn't mean that I plan on leaving my windows open and doors unlocked. Then again, I grew up in Queens so it's second nature for me to lock the door behind me.

If I have anything of value, it goes into the trunk.

Long Island is a tough place to live. With the exception of our homes, an automobile is generally our second most expensive purchase. Anyone who breaks into cars to steal should be considered a burglar.

I hope momma has a few extra grand laying around to pay off junior's legal fees.

What's the saying...nothing good happens after midnight? These kids should have been home and asleep. Maybe if they had a curfew and a job and some structure this would not have happened.

Ditto! That's good advice, it's simple and it works.

I see Peter posts from New Hampshire. Reading these posts he may get the idea Long Island is riddled with crime. I don't think that's the case, because our population is almost 3 million persons. We have more residents in the two counties than many states.

I would guess our crime rate is lower compared to other metro areas.

My mom came from the school that nothing good happens after 8 pm. I had to be in the house when the street lights came on...I was 15 at the time. At 16, I was allowed to stay out until 10...oooh.

There was a massive sense of accountability that was required of me. If I was going to a house party, I had to provide name, address, phone number, occassion, etc. and My mom drove me to the house and met with the parents before leaving me there. I had to leave before the fun started happening and yes, it sucked then but I finished my education, never got arrested, never got caught up in drugs, no kids, etc.

Well, Liz, our parents must have come from the same school because I was raised as one of eight children, and we had rules, like you. We each grew up, knowing our 'rights' versus our 'privileges'. Teaching your children responsibility, respect and decency should be the goal of every parent. Far from easy, but worth every second you put into it. Kudos to my parents and yours, as all 8 of us 'kids' are now, not only responsible, respectful and decent, but have passed those things onto all of our own children.

"If convicted, they are not expected to have to serve the maximum penalty because they are minors and this is their first offense."

What a hoot! This is the first time they were CAUGHT!!! The first time someone is arrested for DWI is the first time that person has ever driven drunk? Give me a break!!

And Mrs. Sullivan, no child should be out at 3 AM. Weren't you wondering what he was doing at that hour? How about apologizing to the victims of his crimes for their losses and the aggravation they are going through because you neglected to responsibly parent your child? "A poor decision" at your son's age should be forgetting to set his alarm clock to get to school on time, eating too many oreos in one sitting,forgetting to bring water on a hot day to football practice or running out of gas in the car because he didn't realize the tank had gotten low.

Before I am my child's friend, I am my child's parent. And if you parent with that in mind, your children will be your adult friends for all the joys in life...I can't imagine there is much joy behind bars.

I will pray for you.
