      i dont know where you live but in my town, we got thugs of every color, every kinda upbringing, on welfare/not on welfare. Its all about choices & suffering the consequences for the bad choices thats how it was when I was growing up. I made some bad choices growing up & some after I was grown. Each time I did, I had to ask myself "Is it worth the consequences"/"Was it worth the consequences" thats common since. There are rules for a reason. You may not always understand or agree but you can pretty much figure out what the outcome will be. Too many kids(all colors& backgrounds)growing up feeling entitled & with all kinds of excuses, & lets not forget laziness. We all know better. Too many folks enabling these kids with slack punishment, even the judicial system. I got kids too. I teach them right from wrong tell em what they gonna get for bad choices, then it on them. When they whining bout the punishment for they bad behavior, I tell them they wont whining when they made the choice, now quit whining while they suffer the consequences.

        You said you have made bad choices while growing up and now as an adult. Your comment started off good, but then you change. Did you feel entitled when you were making these choices? Seems like to me you have not learned your lesson as an adult, so you really shouldn't be preaching to your kids if they are following your lead.

    And I really would like to know. You have rules, but you don't seem to abide by them. You allow these worthless people to make rude comments and you sit back and laugh or agree. So why do you have rules? You continue to cause a stir with people who are already racist towards different racial groups. Either follow your rules or let everyone post what they want not just one group of people.

    Take them off the coast of Hatteras about 5 miles and see how good they can swim.

    after reading only half of these ridiculous comments its safe to say that a lot of yall are beyond ignorant especially the ones saying Kfc needs better cameras. what does better cameras have to do with anything? these 4 didn't know whether or not any of the cameras were on or even worked. Just take the time to think ....what if that was you with a gun to your head and being forced to the ground not knowing whether or not you would be able to see your family again. So before talking stupid try walking in the footsteps of somebody that was on that ground and not knowing what the next min holds. I'm sure your prospectives would change.

    The fact is four ADULTS made very bad choices and will now have to face the consequences. Maybe some had good upbringings, maybe some finished school, and maybe some did not. Those points are irrelevant. It doesn't matter if they are black or white or Hispanic, they are now off the street and behind bars where they belong. To everyone making excuses for them and saying they deserve a second chance, take a minute to remember the pregnant young lady that worked at a Flying Biscuit in Charlotte. Her co worker, out on parole for a larceny conviction, murdered her. What would she say about second chances if she could? What about her second chance? She doesn't get one. These fellas had their chance. They know right from wrong and they chose wrong.

      The difference is her co-worker murdered her. I wish people would stop making comparison to other stories. Totally different situation.

        You completely missed the point. The point was the "second chance". The guy that murdered his co-worker was on his second chance.

    Some of these young people have made mistakes in their lives. But what doesn't help is the notorious Jailbird with this publication at large these young people don't have a chance to get a job. No one wants to hire them even if they have done their time. So back to the crime they go in order to survive. Look at the Jailbird before you look at the families and churches.

      I am glad that people hiring know they are criminals. Most job applications actually ask you if you have been convicted.

      No excuse. Don't drag church into it. They pay for their first bad choice, the first time; it's called 'a deterrent'. Many, many people don't rob at gunpoint, or attempt to kill another person to learn their 'first lessons' in life. When all of us are growing up, we are taught certain values/principles, and respect. Some people just think dissing all that is cooler than trying to conform to society and finish school/get a job/be responsible. So, that argument is lame. How about this? If you DON'T want your photo in the Jailbird, don't do crimes. Eh boys and girls?
