At least it wasn't a dog who told them to commit these crimes. Good for them for standing up and taking what is coming to them. They just may turn out to be productive citizens.

So if they're willing to serve immediately, why are they waiting till NOVEMBER for sentencing??

Kids do this sort of thing, but they take it too far with the "home invasions." Now it can get very dangerous to approach anything considered "home invasion" after the new laws enacted.

I'm glad they took responsibility. In my day, kids smashed mailboxes relentlessly (among other things) and would never own up

Back in my day we just got ACD after ACD. Enforcement never realized they were letting off the same "good kids" from lower-middle income each time. An innocent look, with blue eyes and a decent suit goes a long way. Every time.

I guess they should have paid more attention to the comedy of Chris Rock.

When I was a kid cartoons were ordered to be less violent because it was proven that kids copy what they see. That has never changed, but the amount of violence kids see on TV every day has skyrocketed. It has desensitized them.

If you know in your heart that violence is wrong, it should not be part of your entertainment. Take a stand, and don't allow it on your TV in your home at all. Saying you can't control what they watch is a cop-out. You are the grown-up, take control.

I raised my daughter this way, she was happier and healthier physically and spiritually (it has been proven that watching violence increases stress hormones and lowers the body's immune system), and now she is raising her kids the same way.
