So basically all of the teens got away with beating that poor man to death. Just crazy, lets teach kids that not only can u treat ur parents however u want bcuz there is nothing they can physically do to punish u but now.u can get away with murder.

If they did it they could have proved. They got the wrong guys now the real killer is still free since they spent all this time focusing on the innocent.

The real killer isn't free until his $500 bond is posted. Read the article.

If you have not read or followed up with the story you shouldn't bother speaking about it. He was freed on murder and robbery and so were the rest because they didn't do it, simple as that. Bank records showed the victim and no active debit card which illimnates the whole robbery scenario, also, the clerk couldn't identify the accused as coming in the store or any surrounding stores. Vacuum samples collected provided ne evidence. They were not seen on several days of video at dress plaza nor was the van. Time to move on already the proof is in the paper.

Y would the boy admit to helping beat that man if it didn't happen? Ppl like you are the reason killers go free. I understand if they kept denying it and the cops still had no proof but that boy admitted to it. That's all the proof u need. Im sorry but if I didn't kill someone im sure the hell not gonna let a cop or anyone else talk me into saying I did or had something to do with it.

Easy to say when your not a scorned child. It is very easy to get children to talk when they are threatened and scared. I am very closely related to this story and there's so much more to it than I care to share. He only admitted to what police told him first. Again, if you haven't followed and read all the stories you should comment.

Thank u glad some other ppl agree that u dont admit to something u had nothing to do with. Of course if ur close to the ppl that did ur going to try to convince yourself and everyone else that they didn't do it. That poor man's killers got off with a slap on the wrist. He got beat by a bunch of punk kids and tossed away like he was nothing. Those kids will meet their maker one day and finally pay for what they did.

debate as you please, but nothing you say or think carries any value at all. He has been tried and found innocent, that's all there is.

My son may be a lot of things but a murderer isn't one of them. Keep slandering is name and see how it helpos in the lawsuit to come in his wrongful arrest, talk on.

In case you missed the article, the supposed sheets missing were later found accordinging to mrs hurt, also the 'choking' incident occurred while wrestling and a fb post made by debbie stated it was an accident. I have read through 500 pages of bs and they all prove this was a lie to start with. If he was such a threat to the family she had two chances to have him removed and she declined. Still think she's a victim?? Leave my son alone!! He never talked, never admitted , denied it from day one, and evidence says he told the truth!!

Believe what you want. I see your one of those small minded individuals that think everything police say is the truth. Its been proven that it isn't. And what grounds my friend do you think they will re arrest him on? You mean the evidence used in hurts trial that came back in their favor?? You know, the evidence proving they were not at the locations, the finger prints that matched neither the accused or the victim, the sheets that were missing but later found, oh wait, the bank records showing no activity on the victims card? Or the store surveilance saying they weren't there? Need I go on?

My son Harley has not bragged about, nor spoke about this case to anyone. I believe they were referring to William. Becuase my son was 16 he was in a solitary cell and never had the optiomn to 'brag' about anything. To this day my son denies any involvement. Also, my son does have behavior issues but is not the type to beat a homeless elderly man for no reason.

Furthermore, my son is very smart. He would never be stupid enough to talk to the police without an attorney, nor would he ever be stupid enough to admit to anything he did or didn't do. He was offered a lie detector test to prove his innocence and the police declined. My son was held in vcj for four months on no evidence and he wasn't released becauce evidence couldn't be processed in time for his right to a speedy trial, it was dismissed because they didn't have evidence which was shared in Hurt's trial.
