It's not about being perfect, or having perfect kids. I'm not perfect, and my kids certainly are not either. It's not about making a "mistake." It's about learning life lessons. It's about cause and effect. Bad choices and consequences. It's not about comparing them to drug dealers and thieves. Nobody is minimizing the crimes committed by others by insisting on justice in this particular case. If we put ourselves in the position of the victims, it may open our eyes a little.

I think it was a mistake too. But he calls them punks. I don't believe he should be bashing other people's children. That's not right. That's what's wrong with today's society now. To much name calling and finger pointing. I'm sures these kids will have a life sentence. I'm sure this is something they will never forget.unless you know these kids don't put them down. Lets help them out so they will become better adults.

Ridiculous! The problem isn't name calling. The problem is breaking the law. I don't know what the motive was and I don't care. I would have pressed charges, too.

OK, you don't like the word PUNKS. Lets call them exactly what they are. CRIMINAL SUSPECTS soon to be labeled CONVICTED CRIMINALS. Is that better? In the real world, all criminals are PUNKS who would rather damage/destroy/steal the property of others who have worked for what they have. If all of the PUNKS in the world actually worked, they would not have the time to commit these crimes. It's a shame that they cannot be "assigned" a dirty job for a few months at a servers minimum wage to repay the victims.

Can't call them criminals yet, they haven't been found guilty and sentenced. "Punks" will have to do for now.

I am glad they're being prosecuted. If you are so worried about money being spent, worry more about all the Obama voters who are sucking us all dry with welfare

The only reason Hill is being charged is because he gave 2 of them a ride home. He was 4 houses down when it happened. One of the parents “whined” because they didn’t charge him with anything. He is actually the one that turned them in so I heard they were making a story up about him for payback for turning them in. That’s what they are saying at school.

Rumor has it that when first questioned he said its was members of the BB team that were involved. Some maybe all were questioned by the admins. I'm sure a lot is going around.
