    I know one of these guys and am very sad to see the road he has taken. They both look strung out of their mind on drugs. Nice life you have chosen

    it’s easy for you to judge isn’t it; you have no son or daughter with drug problems. yeah this is all wrong and yes they will do time for their crimes. I just hope you never have to deal with a child with addiction problem!

    • FED UP

      I have dealt with a drug addicted child for 15 years and trust me. Hard handed justice is the only thing they know and the only thing that will save their lives. Stop making excuses and enabling your children. It would make our county a better place to live if parents would stop pampering their drug and criminal children. It affects the entire community.

    I used to be really close with one of these guys. He’s always been a good person who just got mixed up in the wrong crowd. That’s what drugs do. Breaks my heart.

    First offense, we need to rehabilitate our youth not punish them into a spiral for the rest of their lives. I suspect these two were over their heads and will straighten up quickly if given the right judge and right oppurtunities. :) Show some humanity, how about it?

    • FED UP Again

      Like i resonded to “amomwhoknows” I have dealt with a drug addicted child for 15 years and trust me. Hard handed justice is the only thing they know and the only thing that will save their lives. Stop STOP STOP making excuses and enabling your children. It would make our county a better place to live if parents would stop STOP STOP pampering their drug and criminal children. It affects the entire community.

    I know the family of one of the boys, my son grew up with him, he comes from a very close family – I know from the last couple years has been tough for him.. When they get at the age they are now all we can do is try to guide them, the rest is up to them and I know he came from a good family that would’ve given there all to have kept there child on a straight & narrow road… Hope the best for him and his family my prayers go out to his mom & dad also the rest of the family!!

    • Fed up with addiction

      This mother understands how difficult drug addiction in the youth of today. Thank you so much for your honesty and understanding. But parents beware, hard handed justice is the only thing that will save their lives. I feel sorry for the parents as they are the real victims in this. I will pray for the entire family, as I am sure they are extemely good parents and this is devastating them. NO parent should have to go through this. This comes from years of experience, and having them detroy my life with their bad decisions.

    That black pistol in the middle is mine. Currie Holland robbed my house back in August for over $7,000 worth of stuff. Fuck him, Karma always comes around
