    This is amazing. B. Foster broke into our home about 6 months ago. His court date for this and other break-ins/offenses was less than two months ago, but I believe it was continued. I have heard that these two admitted to at least 10 more break-ins than were reported in this story. Including his previous record at least one of these individuals has been involved with near 25 known break-ins in less about 8 months. If the system lets these two back on the streets they WILL keep doing this. And something else that wasn't mentioned in the story, B. Foster also lives in the neighborhood(in one of the nice houses behind Sterling Pointe). Guns have been included in the list of items that these two have stolen. This is frightening and will most likely end badly for someone if they and their friends are allowed to continue. I do believe that this is larger than just these two.

    I, too live in Sterling Point and have only been there for a few months. My husband and I are professionals and yes, I have heard that the area has gone down. I hate it that our young men have committed a crime that has left us concerned about our neighborhood. But we can stop it now. I agree with "resident"...and say, let's take the neighborhood. We don't have to live in a place with trash in the street, scared to leave our homes in fear of what may happen when we are gone.Something has to be done before it gets out of hand.

    I live in Sterling Pointe and I hate that the neighborhood has gone down hill. I don't even like coming home anymore. My house was not victimized but my neighbor's was. It is terrialbe that we are left to live in fear b/c of two stupid young men. People work hard for their belonings-if they want nice things.. get a job and work for it like everyone else!! Lets band together Sterling Pointe and take back our neighboorhood!!!!!!

    To all the would be thugs or parents of these "good boys" misled by the streets: As a local law enforcement officer if you're gonna have the balls to break into my home, you'd better make real sure you know my schedule. Because if I happen to be home, you will be shot on site and there will be no need to call for an ambulance. These kids were targeting law enforcement officer's homes. Had one of them been shot while commiting their B&E the whole community would be in an outrage at the homeowner that ridded society of their worthless behinds. While I'm overjoyed that they got caught red handed, it is bittersweet because they will be slapped on the wrist by the justice system. Hopefully they will take a break from the B&E scene and if not I'm right here waiting for them with open arms and dead on sights!

    LEW you are correct and I understand where you are coming from. But these thieves rob my home and stole items. So excuse me if I dont bust out into tears.I only wish I was home when they broken into my house. Things would have been different, someone may I been leaving in body bags. NOW, These thieves are felons and whos fault is that. We all have decision to make whether good or bad. Hey, these guys choose to cause mischief and mayhem. No one to blame but themselves. I believe one of the was out on bail for prior offenses. I hope they get the maxium sentence. When I was their age I was serving in the military and later I did a tour in Iraq. I have some understanding for the parents no one wants their child to get into trouble.They will have to deal with their choices. Its time to pay the piper.Ms.Keishia I guess its a good thing you move on from Brandin Foster uh.

    No one wants to face it, but this is the way the majority of young black men lbehave. It is time the black community steps forward, admits it has a problem with crime, high school drop outs, academic underachievers, unbelievably high school discipline problems, obesity, diabetes, HIV, unwed mothers (70% of black childrren born out of wedlock), too many guns, too much drugs, no respect for authority, on and on and on. I love all people, but it is time to stop making excuses and move in the right directions. Let's start at home, with love instead of violence, with education instead fo excuses, with cooperation instead of rebellion. If we don't, we will lose this entire generation to the streets, and this country will end up in chaos.

    I know the boy Brandin Foster. He is my ex-boyfriend and I agree with T maxx about it being ashame that they do things like that and I kind of agree with the maximum sentence because they have too much time on their hands and they need to stop.

    Two criminals are behind bars where they belong. Its ashame that young black men have nothing else to do. But watching people leave for work and break into their homes. I hope these guys get the maxium sentence.
