I was stunned when I learned of the story with regards to Steven Mashue and his involvement with the plan to kill his Aunt. believe Steve should pay the consquences for breaking in the home, holding his Aunt and cousin captive, and for stealing the truck and money. However, I do not believe he should be charge with attempted murder as it sounds like he did not actually attempt to shoot the Aunt. I briefly knew Steve when he was in High School. He did not get a fair shake in life when he lost his mother to cancer and his father abandon him emotionally through the ordeal. I believe Steve's judgement has been clouded by years of built up resentment and being influenced by relatives that did not offer him a safe, understanding and loving environment. Steve is a classic case of a kid that was abandon to run wild. I knew Steve before his mother died, and he was a good kid, full of hopes and smiles. I saw the down turn in his life during the time his mother was dying of cancer and especially after she died. I blame his father for getting married right away and never took the time to reach out to him and his sister.

I do think Steve should pay for his crime, but I do not believe he should be put away for life. I know from watching the video on TV 5, he is broken up. There is a potential perhaps to rehabilitate him, with love and wisdom. I hope he gets a fair trail and perhaps someone with wisdom and love influence him to turn his behavior around. In the meantime, I believe his uncle should be put away for life for taking advantage of a mix up kid to do his dirty work.
