    Steal a dollar and you are a common criminal. Steal a million dollars and you are a sucessful businessman. Crooks steal the cookies and so to jail. Wall street bankers steal the cookies and the cookie jar while receiving the blessings of an American public.

    If I caught them trying to break into my safe, then my 22 would already have been shot at all those guys. They should be in prison for at least 40 years over this horrible act.

    What is up with these kids. Some times kids can be raised in a really good home and still do something so stupid like this. Don't be quick to judge the parents on this one. These kids knew right from wrong!! I feel for the people who were violated. I would flip if someone broke into my house. Hope they can recover and maybe put security camera's up around the house. Good luck to all the parents involved. I have a son and I would be very upset if he did something like this.

    try them as adults, and make them pay all damages back, and since they are under age, maby the parents of these sorry kids should pay also
