First off, niether one of you can spell. Second, there is no excuse for the actions of those three young punks out to prove something...here's to show, the brother of one of the three just got put in jail also...where are the parents? The young man they shot was a hard-working respectable man which can't and never will be said about danny j.b. and R.d.

Whats so weird - on another board I was talking about a man who committed murder and how his family was grieving so, and about things I personally knew about who he killed and was wishing he would get a little mercy.
I was blasted by the victim's family but on this post, people are taking up for the ones who committed the murder. Strange. None the less - I will have to agree that the victim's family suffers the most and that since the victim/s can never speak up for him/her self I will always temper my comments with compassion more toward the victim than the culprit. This is not to say the parents of those boys who committed this crime are not grieving over the loss of their "lives" spending most of it in prison..

mentally incompetent (not knowing right from wrong) temporary insanity - or self defense - three things could have been going on. But it's sad when someone loses their life NO MATTER the reason it was done - the victim's family are suffering as well as the BOYS family.

Is this the representation of WV educated young men and women? Our public schools need to make English teachers more committed to spelling, grammar and punctuation. It's no wonder WV ranks near the bottom of the list in education.

While I'd like to respond favorably and with sympathy, I can't understand what the posts are trying to say due to all the poor spelling and no punctuation.

OMG this is the worst case of "uneducated hillbilly" language I have ever seen. If I am reading this form of english coerrectly some of you think it's alright to kill someone. Well, it's not. Ever. Period! Whoever did the killing should get the book thrown at them.

its sad that there are no morrals in this 17 year old,he'd better find Jesus he's the only one that can help him in this mess,im sure he's sorry now, he has no excuse there is nuthing in this world worth takeing and killing some one in cold blood,he will answer for it here and he will answer for it at the end of his life,I say this to those who know these two Jesus is the only way out for you and these two teens,may these two find peace and security,if they except Jesus and lean on him as their lawer(win) and friend,instead of prosacuter and judge(lose)

I think what they did is wrong yeah, but that doesn't mean just because you were with the person who shot someone should get the same sentence as the real person who did it. also, the only people that know the real truth are them! nobody else, everything else is just talk, or what someone else has heard. and the news makes it seems like they are horrible kids, and I personally know all of them and they are some of the nicest, sweetest guys you could meet. I'm not saying what they did is right, but I don't think everybody else should be putting their two-sense into something they just listen to or hear about on the news or what others say.
I have and still am talking to two of the three, and they regret who they were with that night and if they could take it back they would. and how bad they feel for josh's family. but if you think about it, how does their family's feel.. their teenagers won't have a life, don't have a chance.
SO YES I LOVE THEM!
