    Since these three love to shoot guns so much, they should be sent on a free trip to Afganistan and put into combat with a cap pistol!

    I wonder if they fell off their bicycles while trying to aim.

    Nobody from their family or friends has posted on here defending or explaining these boys actions. Nobody even wants to admit they know them. Even their mom has dissed them.

    Why do people take it to the internet to make racist comments? "Ship them out", "Oh they don't have fathers". This was not your country, first of all, and second Casey Anthony had a father be we see how that went. Claim to be so intelligent but don't think. Go to an african american's face and tell them that. At least the KKK let you know they didn't like you instead of getting it in on the net.

      Please, get off your high horse, I'm sure these fine young men have fathers, it's our fault that they did this crime to begin with anyway, it's not like we give them money and food...oh wait wait...we do! Now we can feed them and house them in jail, instead of public housing and food stamps.

      So saying that they don't have fathers is a racist comment. I don't think so, it reflects our overall society. You read things into my comment that wasn't there. YOUR comment gave it the racial undertone.

        notice no one said anything about the "ship them out" part. whether they have fathers or not isn't the problem. the problem is three clowns were doing idiotic acts and therefore whould be punished. even if they had fathers, that doesn't gaurantee anything is the point i was makin. but yea the ship them out part IS racist. comment to your heart's fulfillment, done talkin to ya.

          Saying "ship them out" or assuming these men were fatherless growing up is not racist. Denying them a job based on color is racist.

      SMH at Racists I agree with you 110%, there's always a food stamp comment or public housing comment or they didn't have a father comment? But how are these assumptions maded based on a paragraph and a photo?!?! You be the judge. Racism is still alive and these comments are evidence....However my comment probably won't be posted so WHATEVER. I just pray about it and hope all the racist morons stay far away from me and my family!

    You should give them a proposition....if 2 out of 3 know and have met their real fathers...you will let them go! hahahahahahaha

    What needs to happen is these guys pay all damages, plus medical expenses, on top of doing their time in prison. Oh, wait, can't afford to pay all that? That's fine. Any money you receive in jail will go towards the account. We'll repo all your possession and sell them. and look at the one at the end. He has that "I don't care look."
