Great news,he planned this crime as an adult,he walked into the store as an adult, he committed murder as an adult,therefore he should be tried as an adult, and executed as an adult. But now that his adult life is over, it is my guess that they will try to defend him by saying rap music made him do it, or some other cop-out excuse. simple fact is he committed the crime, and now needs to pay for it, because he did not give any empathy or sypmathy to the store clerk making minimum wage doing a job to live, nope not at all, he cold blooded murdered an innocent store clerk.

Defense will also throw out the " Mentally Retarded " theory too. How do you actually define mental retardation anyway? If you don't recieve SSI or you don't live in a group home, then you are capable of functioning on your own. Thus, you're not retarded.
But, leave to some shyster to try and persuade a jury.

He is mentally disturbed sure for commiting this crime, but no more than every other cold blooded murderer sitting on death row, and disturbed is the furthest thing from disabled. The POS needs to die sooner than later so our tax dollars do not get wasted on a genetic loser. Every violent gang member needs to be killed, along with child molesters.

You dont know Scottie like i do. He would never do something like that meaningly. Scottie has a big heart he lost his mother in 05 his dad doesnt give a shit about him he had no one but his brother. He had to do what he had to do to get money his intentions never were to kill Karen. So i dont think you people should be judging him when you dont even know him, who are you to judge any one. You just a human too HUMANS MAKE MISTAKES!!!!
Sorry to Karens Family!!!

Yeah, humans make mistakes. NO ONE is perfect.
But....I don't walk into convenience stores shoot and kill innocent store clerks in the head, at close range, during attempted robberies either. And, I was raised in a household that Jerry Springer would of had no control of. I don't care if the accused was raised by rabid racoons, what was done to that poor woman, in that store, was totally chickenschit and heartbreaking.
If Scottie is indeed the triggerman of that night of the heinous robbery (Remember: he's just been indicted and not had a trial by jury yet), then I have ABSOLUTELY no compassion for him or the struggles he has endured.
My heart goes out to the family of the slain woman.

i also know scotty and i know that him losing his mom was a big hit on him and im not saying that is an excuse and i believe he SHOULD be tried as an adult but he does not need to be killed... he is a good person at heart and for him to do something like this is so off the wall. i believe that he should spend some time in the pin but not the rest of his life. and it is true, all he has is his brother and his friends. THATS IT. nobody else so Scottie i love you man for real

HAHAHA are you kidding me, losing his mother at 5 made him kill a store clerk.... please!!! that is no reason to even think about bringing up for what he did, bottom line, if he lost his mother and if his father wasnt around, and all he had was his brother, then he was mature enough to survive all the way up to his murdering of a store clerk. he is an adult and needs to be killed without mercy for what he did just like every other person in the world should face for the same thing, life isnt perfect and we all here to make a living,if he does this at 16, goes to prison for 20 actual served if he got 50, then whats to stop him from killing or commiting rape your child, then he would be alot more messed up from all that prison, it comes down to this , he did the crime and will get what he deserves.death :)

You say he is a good person at heart? Wow, that definitly would not be how I describe him!People are not always what you think they are, what if he killed your mom? People always have a choice in what they do, his hardships in life could cause him to try harder(in good ways) to be a better person- a motivator-someone who could help others in similar circumstances, but he chose the path to destruction-he deserves the death penalty.

The kid is related to a brother-in-law of mine and the kid is and has been messed up for a long time. That's verbatim what this kids extended family said about him.

Actions speak louder than words and this kid is cold-blooded and may be too far gone for therapy. Some people are just psychopaths and the only way to help them is to keep them locked up to keep them from hurting others or themselves.

Yes! He is going to be tried as an adult... He will get justice served then, I would if I were him make my peace with this world because he is about to get exactly what he gave, DEATH!!! Good bye to a heartless killer. There can be no therapy better than death for this loser. My heart doesnt even go out to the remaining family because they had every chance for 11 years to help him and give guidance to ensure he doesnt become a statistic, so they are to blame as well. I hope he suffers in HELL for this. I hope his family who cares for him suffers as well, My heart ONLY goes out for the victim's family, may they get the satasfaction of justice when he is ass-raped in prison and eventually put to death.

He did what he needed to do to get money!?! Why not try getting a job. I guess the meth blowing up in his face a few days before the murder halted his drug dealing so robbery seemed easiest. What's really sad is that he knew Karen and talked to her daily. I believe it may have been easier to hold her up at gunpoint and force her to open the register. This would have saved a life and he would have gained the money he was there for. People do make mistakes but a senseless murder was not a mistake. He didn't accidentally hold the gun and pull the trigger more than once. He will soon have his day in court.

I know Scottie and his family and from my perspective his dad did everything he could for those kids. None of them has any respect and that is where Scottie got it from. His brothers did not set good examples. If all he had was his brothers he should have found better role model.
I think a parent can only do so much to steer their child in the right direction he is old enough to understand that what he did was wrong and that he must pay

I have known the entire family since scotty was around 3yrs old and yes he did have a terrible life. Mom passed away from cancer in Nov. 2005 and dad has never been there for the kids even before mom died so all but the youngest two have been on their own, or in the street for the majority of their childhood. With that being said, he deserves exactly what he gave, death. He knew what he was doing and HE KNEW BETTER!!!! I know some of you that knew him want to feel some type of sympathy for his situation, but again he knew better and I personally always told him and his brothers if they EVER needed anything they could come to me. So he had more options, he did not have to rob, steal or as it ended up, murder anyone. You guys need to give it up and let the justice system give him what he and all cold-blooded murderers deserve, DEATH@!!!

What he did was wrong yes...but killing somone because they killed someone else isnt right. I mean they don't even get to really suffer with that guilt for the rest of there lives. They just take the easy way out. I say let him wrote in jail for about 50 years and suffer for what he did.

PLEASE!
If my baby brother or cousin had killed somebody in cold blood, I would still support the death penalty for them.
Murder is murder.
I've had a shit life growing up too, and I know I'm not the only one on here with the same story, but none of us have killed ANYBODY.
There's not an excuse on earth for a murder like that.
