To all of you lot who are hating on these lads. They may have stole somebody's car which was wrong, but the car owner will get an insurance payout! The mother of these lads will never see her sons again!

If you do over 100mph in a 30mph area in a stolen car then you are asking for trouble. At least justice was served. No funeral costs and no taxpayers money to keep them locked up.

Thank God that every hard working decent human being in Boothstown was safe that night and off the streets at the time these idiots were on it!!

. Who's fault is they stole a expensive car after breaking into someone's house, two scroats less. Just deserts, you get out of life what you put it, sorry for their parents .ref insurance for all damage who's going to pay for that and all the costs involved for clean up, inconvenience. To residents of Leigh road, people who use the road every day, why did they steal car?. Down to no one but them end of the day not parents fault, they have to pick up the costs of funerals etc

why are they no longer with us ?, not because they were at work like most people do, they were in a stolen car that they stole from a persons house, who probably will have to fill out massive amounts of forms to try and get their insurance company to pay out for claim , their fault and no one else's , plenty of jobs if you are prepared to work instead of claiming off the state,always could sell big issue, window clean,deliver papers,work at supermarket , gardening etc etc etc , were they going to put the proceeds on their tax return, dont think so , no sympathy for them end of story .

RIP!? They had guns and threatened people when stealing the car.
Everybody is someone's son or daughter, doesn't stop some of them being rotten to the core.
Got exactly what they deserved. Justice done.

typical response from someone who can only spell as they speak, how would you like to have armed men break into your house and steal your property , the brothers went out with the intent to permanently deprive someone of their hard earned goods, they stole an expensive fast car, obviously could not drive properly, luckily no one else was physically injured in the crash, the brothers are NOT VICTIMS. They did wrong, paid the ultimate price for their wrong doing, but have left their parents to pick up the pieces of their actions, they had no concern for anyone else when stealing the car . GET A JOB and pay your way, if you cannot get a job, clean windows or do anything legal, support yourself and do not expect a free life sitting at home or in a pub complaining about how poor you are boo ho . 2 less to pay for if had been put in prison , unfortunately the 3rd person was not with them !

took quite a long time to read your un educated comments, at the end of the day the did wrong, no one made them do what they did , their own fault no one elses ,too easy to blame the police, the police have to be there or life would be not very nice at all , maybe the government should give free houses to all the population who don't work but can have false nails, wear pyjamas all day long, and live for nothing with boyfriends living with them in their free flats , wearing all their fake clothes with sun bed or fake tans oh no the country already does that,!!!.no normal person has got any sympathy for the brothers only for their parents and families, but if they had got away with their crime would they be in the pub buying all their sponging mates a pint being ten men , lifes tough, pay your way or go somewhere else , try it in other countries and you could have a hand chopped off, not go to prison with an x box in your free cell with free food and heating , things have got too change .see no swearing , easy if you try hard enough .

The only people that i feel sorry for are the parents, not the 2 lads who took it up on them to steal. every action has a consequence and the lads paid the ultimate price. Makes me laugh when i here of the poverty in little hulton and people justify why they steel to make ends meet.
I accept that the lads did not deserve to die especially in the way they did but karma has a funny way of coming back for you and this is what happens. i will not join those who say RIP as i will be hypocrytical but it should be a lesson learned. I hope the family who had there car stollen get it replaced and can get over the fact they were robbed. Silly boys!!

excellent couldn't agree more , too much sympathy for wrong doing people in this country, what about the real victims of the crime , send all the able, fit long term dole dossers out with a bin bag to clean up the streets, and if they refuse to do it, stop their free money , kick them out of their free houses ,and have their children looked after by relatives too easy to do nothing this day , if you are self employed no work means no money , simple
