    Death sentence. There is no excuse for this, and it wasn’t just a “mistake” in judgement or a “bad idea” or something that young people do that’s dumb.

    Kill these enemies of humanity immediately!

      ARe you nuts?? The death sentence?? lol Maybe they need help….maybe they are drug addicts. You know that the death sentence won’t happ…don’t you?! They will get some sort of sentence..depending on their criminal history. If they are first time offenders then the sentence won’t be as severe.

      1. just sayin says:

        No, but the death sentence should be in place for murderers.
        You bleeding heart liberals who think that murderers deserve a second chance are so stupid. They get out, and do it again.

        Maybe if you have the death penalty – people would think twice before comitting a murder.

        Second, these prison systems need to get rid of all activities for these losers.
        Prison is supposed to be a place you don’t want to go.
        No more tv’s no more weights, no more basketball for the homies either.

      2. Brittany Reilly says:

    They deserve a fair trial. I am sure the whole thing was just a misunderstanding. The gun probably just slipped out of his jacket as it was the same one he wore duck hunting last Fall.
    Lets spend countless hours and State dollars defending them because we owe it to Society. Who knows maybe they are innocent.

      Read the Constitution lately? It does say something about a presumption of innocence. Then again, I’m guessing that the Founding Fathers were just a bunch of simpering liberal cry-babies in your eyes.

      1. GOPSUX says:

        I too never get any action. I like little boys as well. I can’t help it. Guess thats why I am a liberal. Please forgive me society – It’s just a mental illness I have.
