wrong place at the wrong time? is that why they were armed with a gun and a bat? if they would have tried that at my home they would have been shot on sight! you must be a young punk yourself or either a parent of one of these thugs! quit making excuses for criminals!

I am sorry, Brittany, but that was a stupid thing to say. Life is about choices, and these boys chose to rob with weapons. I agree with Jim, if they had dared to enter my house, I too would have shot them dead on the spot. How would you feel if they had broken into your home and threatened your family or stolen your possessions?

What they did was extremely dangerous for BOTH themselves and the victims. Especially in O.B. where MOST homes have firearms and alot of those are carried on the homeowners body and easy to pull and fire. It's not a "mistake" when three 17yr olds and an 18yr old show up armed with a gun and a baseball bat to a person's house who KNOWS them. That could've escalated quickly and alot of people could've been hurt or killed? If they'd showed up at my house they would've been shot and I wouldn't have cared if they were kids or not. It's not because I have no respect for life-I just have a healthy respect for mine and my families lives 1st. Hopefully when this is done these kids will have learned a valuable lesson and be able to go on and have a good lives.

They all coming down from Memphis.
Some are white punks already here, cause they
have nothing ahead of them but jail or death.
So kill now and your taxes dont go up. Paying to support a prison system. As soon as the US Govt fails, things will be a hundred times worse.
Buy a lot of shotgun shells now before the Govt
takes full control. Obama already talking about
no guns in the south.
