No one should be charged. All they did was restrain a common thief that was resisting. I'm sure the 'parents' will be filing a frivolous lawsuit soon!

Shoplifter dies after being attacked by other cust...

I do disagree with the above healines...I don't think he was"attacked"! Sounds like they are "trying" to shift the blame from the shoplifter to someone else.

You "disagree with the headlines"? Big surprise. You have no idea what even happened, by your own admission. I'm sure if you had a son who stole liquor (GASP!!!), you'd agree that three people confronting him & ending with his dead was a perfectly logical consequence for the crime. Jesus you people are f*cked in the head, seriously.

Stupid liberal.. All we need to know is that this idiot thought it was ok to steal, then instead of facing the consequences when he was caught he decided to resist. Did i ever steal as a kid? Yep, only once, when i was caught i stopped and faced the music, i didnt resist the person who caught me as i knew i had done wrong. What would have happened had he resisted an officer? It is highly possible he would have died, a 16 year old should have the mental tools necessary to understand right from wrong and that there are consequences for their actions, i was 7 when i stole and was caught and knew going in there would be consequences.

This "kid", which he wasnt he was a young man, was an athlete in both football and track, i was too and i wasnt a little kid, at 16 i was stronger and faster than my father and any of his friends. At 16 a person is allowed to drive a car, a 2000 pound death machine, if this young man was responsible enough to be allowed to drive he should be responsible for his own actions.

The difference here is the young man new his actions were wrong, he intended to steal from another, the people who caught him did not intend to kill the young man it was a direct result of the young mans poor choice. If you rob a bank and someone dies as a direct result you would be charged with murder.

You stupid liberals are destroying our state with your fallacies.

They should have tasored him until his heart quit, but oh well justice is served!
