    this has turned into a race problem, but not in the sense most people think. It has to do with the human race, respecting each other, not these belly dragging low life scums you see in the news each day.

    I would be ashamed to say these people were of the human race or atleast as I know it.

    They are all lining up to get to prison cuz prison life is better than the life they got. But they make all their own BAD decisions in life and then blame everbody else (society) for them! A true sign of ignorance.

    This is not the first go around for Diamante nor Jasmine. They were bith arrested last year and given suspended sentences. Second break-in for her. Check our DOC website. You play...you pay.

    I can't help but think these guys, and most of the other thug kids, stand in front of a mirror and practice their "police station booking' pose. They really do all look the same

      That's the look of a person with no conscience, no shame - same look as a captured animal.

      You don't have to look far to see where they're learning these thug poses. Watch any source of hip-hop / rap music videos, or other sources of thug-life-glorification and you'll see this is "the way they roll".

    The delicious irony of this situation is the three remaining thugs can all be charged with Felony Murder, because their cohort was killed in the commission of a felony. Hopefully they will ALL be sent away for a VERY long time...
