Will we see an outcry from folks asking for forgiveness and rehabilitation for these guys, since they're young and have their whole lives ahead of them?

True, my mother always said never say "not my children" because you never know, however FACT is---these kids were no angels. There comes a time when a parent has to realize that there are problems. Turning their heads to these brats made them as guilty.

Everyone in town has been talking about the "boys" and who they are. Will the papers and news be able to print their names?

The killers should be put away for life. Bring back mandatory hard labor in prisons.

You raise you kids one way and sometime they turn out to be another way. A lot of the kids hangs out with the wrong crowd. As a parent youn can control kids into a certain age. Today some kids done care what their parents say to them. I know some parents done know how to raise their children but in the otherhand are parent that they educated thier children and their kids turn to be bad kids. I don't like to judge the parents becouse not always is the parents fault.

Raising kids is a full-time job from the day they are born. You put them first, and your own needs second. Love them, talk to them, listen to them, discipline them when necessary, be involved in their lives. It's not easy. If you can't do this, use birth control.

only solution is to keep all the trash in Easton, don't let them out, and let them wipe each other out there!
