    Watch what you say! You don’t know the people or the situation. Not everyone is blessed to grow up in a supporting environment and this life is all they know. Instead of being ignorant and running your mouth try to understand they are BABIES that were lead in the wrong direction. Young minds are easily persuaded and maybe if more people understood that and tried to fix it instead of blabbing their unintelligent thoughts on the internet we might have less situations like this….

      @Frustrated: Give me a break! If anyone is blabbing unintelligent thoughts it’s you. I grew up in poverty and on the streets, but I still knew right from wrong and decided to make something of myself. I applied for student loans, went to college and I now have a great career and a wonderful family. Life is what you make it and if these morons choose to live the life of a thug then I have no sympathy for them.
