    I can’t wait to see what type of parents or family the two cowards are from. They both are old enough to make choices in life no matter where they from. I hope that the community some how can put pressure on the DA’s office and tri the cowards as adults. If not hold their parents responsible for their actions.

    Why don’t they let the two 16-year-olds and two underage girl cohorts be turned loose and shot at by NRA’s for live practice shooting … If they come out alive they are free! Remember the movie “CONDEMNED”? :)
