Love Richard and Dustin to death, as both are great kids, but they have to snap back into reality. I hope with all my heart this does it for them. I want nothing more than to see these young men given a second chance to learn from their mistakes and be given a chance to make something of themselves, but responsibility is only bred through accountability.

Sonya...I am very, VERY close to the other two young men. When I read this I was very disaapointed in them. I will always stand by them, but I cannot stand by their actions. They know right from wrong. I just spoke to one of them a couple of weeks ago as he said he was interested in joining the military and wanted my advice (being a vet). Doesnt look like he will be doing that now.....

cont.. Jail will do nothing for him except compound the problem. I see it first hand every day. I have cooked many a meal,washed many a load of clothes and offered a shower and a couch or floor to many of these young boys that would be on the streets otherwise

want to say upfront that i am by no means excusing or condoning these boys actions. however we live in the poorest county in the state with the highest unemployment rate. In addition to that we have a HUGE drug problem. And parents kicking their children out at age 16. One of the ppl arrested is my son. He has serious mental health issues and at age 21 has the maturity of a 13 year old at best. My mother and i have been through*****and back to get him help. Compliance is def an issue but it is with the majority of mentally ill ppl. He is a follower,wants to fit in and would do ANYTHING his best friend (another one of the boys arrested) told him too. My son also has a substance abuse problem as he has taken to self-medicating to kill the pain caused by his mental illness. I am not saying he does not need to be held accountable. Just that he is easily influenced and would never endeavor to do this on his own. In my opinion what he needs is a mentally ill/drug long term program.

Scummers - why can't they get jobs instead of resorting to this type of thing? Worse, we have to "support" them in jail whle they lounge around watching big screen TV- and playing sports. Jail should be bread and water and you live in your cell, so you have time to ruminate on your ways. Not so any more - this society is doomed.

There was a time when you left your doors unlocked in case your neighbors needed something. Now, you must lock your doors in case your neighbors want something. In today's world there is little shame and no fear simplly because there is no punishment. Give the criminals a good whipping and they won't need expensive jail time.

I know when I was younger & family had hard times I went door to door to shovel snow, rake leaves,wash a car,do any errand possible to earn extra money to help my struggling family.Back then we got 50 cents & we left with a smile from ear to ear with so much gratitude. When I had my own kids I instilled the same values in them & they too shoveled snow,yard work,paper route,baby sitting,etc. And they are teaching their children the same. I don't know what & the heck this world has become..Can't keep using the economy as a crutch.At times I think it is pure ignorance of the ppl who are just too*****lazy to work & they figure why not just do things the easy way in life whether it be steal,rob,cheat,whatever & however just as long as they don't have to make an honest living for it. Over the past few months ALL POLICE DEPTS HAVE BEEN BANNING TOGETHER AND TIGHTENING UP THEIR ACTS & SOLVING MANY CASES>> MORE SO THAN BEFORE..THANK THEM TREMENDOUSLY!!! GREAT

Three dirtbags off the streets. Too bad we have to pay to feed, medicate and provide cable TV for them until their release.

Another case of good work by the officers. From recent articles it is obvious that our police officers are working hard to "take a bite out of crime". I am just worried that with more and more people losing their jobs instead of taking any work to get by a lot of young ones will find it easier to either commit robberies or sell drugs. What is this world coming to when the thought of hard work to earn money is no longer the norm? Sad sign of the times. During the depression people went door to door willing to do any odd job for a meal or a small amt. of cash...they didn't go out and rob and kill for it. What has happened to our society? Glad the police are doing their jobs so well.
