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!!!

Scottie should be shot (Execution Style) and thrown into a dumpster where he belongs. People can say he had a tough life so what! Lost his mother? Karen Is a mother and she had no choice. Eye for n Eye. Im glad he is in jail and hope he rots for years before his death. Maybe one less murder will happen in cleburne because this kid is on the street. My heart goes out to Karens family. And to the people defending him are probably as lost/heartless as he is. I have no sympathy for him

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.
Scottie was one of my students in junior high. I know teachers don't see a lot of what kids do, but what I saw was a good kid. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around this. I grieve for the person he could have been and for the boy I used to know because that boy was a great kid. I hadn't seen him since jr hi so I don't know what he was like, but it grieves me. I understand everyone's anger. We're all tired of gang violence, seeing good people suffer at the hands of criminals and having to pay for what criminals do so I understand the anger being expressed in these posts, but you fail to see the tragedy here. When (if) he pulled that trigger, he killed two people that day: that poor clerk and the person he could have been. The loss of even one teenager like this is unacceptable. I guess "the village" didn't do such a great job. This type of thing will keep happening if we don't do something to intervene in the lives of children like this who are not being cared for.

What i heard about that night is simple. Scottie ran into the gas station, shot that lady in the head, tried to get the money but failed, then ran off. Sounds Cold blooded? Money obviously wasnt the motive. If he wanted the money he would have made her open the register first, before he shot her. From my knowledge the motive was: The lady that got shot had givin Scotties dad his third strike and got him life in prison. Her and scotties dad had gotten pulled over and there were drugs in the car. They got pinned on him. His dad got life in prison. So wouldnt you want revenge. Im not saying what he did was right, Im simply just giving a motive for what he did. Another Motive could be the gang issue. He was told in order to be in the gang ( called Flat Cats if im correct) he would have to kill someone. I actually feel sorry for him. Its all his Drug dealing brothers fault. Scottie was a normal kid but his brother changed him. Scottie was pretty normal while his mom was alive. His brother was still trying ti influence him but i believe scottie didnt give in to it for his mothers sake. Then tragically his mother died. So it was just Scottie and his brother. his is probably when his brother got a strong hold on scottie. After his mom died he probably gave in to all the Lies and bad influences his brother put forth in front of him...

Damn, he is 16yrs. old and was trying to fit in and he was desperate to do that he actually went too far to do so..Yeah, send him to prison and he will come out as a killer...Think about that. I know what he did was not right and he took someones family member or mother, but this kid needs some help along with some kind of punishment.

Who cares what personal problems he may have?

He is a murderer (according to the cops) and that's all we need to know.

He should be executed the same as we do rabid animals.

They don't mean to kill anyone, but they do; so, we kill them before they can kill anyone else.

His influence on him wasn't just his brother, uncle, or whatever...it was drugs. I had just talked to him before he did the horrendous thing. we talked about how they used to screw people over on drug deals and what not. he got influenced by the toxins running through his body. he had no "right mind" he's not going to die, he's sentenced to life...i love that kid...he was the cutest thing in the world...his life turned around in an instant..i hope he realizes that the people he used to look up to, really didn't care about him.=(

Prison will only hurt him more. Damn he had a bad life that dont excuse what he did. But he needs some support and alot of counseling. He has to live with taking someones life for the rest of his. That will haunt him forever. He needs some jail time but he needs a chance to be able to start his life all over again. He's only 16. And I don't know anyone in his family or him. But I just believe he didnt have a good role model in his life to show him the right way.

I went to High School with Karen. I fall into the catagory that a life was ended for NO GOOD REASON. My mother deserted me and I didn't see her for 15 years. I did drugs years ago and commited minor crimes to support that habit, but I cleaned myself up and re-habilitated myself. You can make excuses all day long for someone that commits and horrible crime like this. Oh, he was so young and didn't have a good childhood. Oh well ! Alot of folks have bad childhoods, they don't walk into a store and pop someone in the head because of it. texas is famous for killing the animals for their crimes. Just one more to add to the list. I'll help push the buttons myself if they let me. By bye loser.

I agree with you 100% He is just a human like us all... I did not know him well but I did know his brother.. Everyone one makes mistakes, some just bigger than others, I know in my heart that justice will be served but there is no reason for people that do not know the family or his situation to be judging and posting hateful comments... What was done is done... Everyone needs love and support in this world no matter if you agree with his actions or not. Again I repeat... He is only human.

Scottie is currently locked up in the Clemens unit and spends his days in solitary where he is locked up 23 hours a day. I am a correctional officer who works at the unit. The kid is definitely a problem child.

So,nick from alvarado, then why are you judging people on this forum? What should society do, give Scottie a hug and tell him 'it's all right'? If you are driving a car, and you know that you are supposed to stop at a stop sign or a red light, then you know DAMNED GOOD AND WELL that you don't go into a store shoot a working woman in the back of the head. I'm not doing a damned thing to help that "youth"! He wanted to be a punk assed thug so now he's facing the reality of the lifestyle. Hopefully, one day, he'll fess up to what a violent stupid act he participated in and come out of prison with a better outlook and a college degree, and not be a continuous festering pimple on the butt of society.
