    I have known dylan's family for the last 20 years. His mother is a dedicated, strong woman to both of her children, putting herself through school and always putting her children first and foremost as did her parents. Too bad everyone focuses their comments on negativity towards the parents without even knowning them.

    FYI FOR ALL OF COMMENTORS WHO ARE SPECULATING ON THE FAMILY OF THIS YOUNG MAN, HE IS FROM A COLLEGE EDUCATED LAW ABIDING FAMILY. THERE IS NO HISTORY OF DRUG ABUSE IN THE HOME. THIS HAS TOTALLY DEVASTED HIS FAMILY, I’M GLAD IT’S SO EASY FOR ALL OF YOU TO ASSUME AND JUDGE.

    maybe parents said no one time too many and he decided to get his money any way he could. Sorry but some get this medicine for pain and they do need it. But do not need anyone stealing it from them

    Good point. If parents are indulging in illegal drugs, where do they think their own child gets it from. Apparently families like this needs serious help,asap.

    They get drugs from drug dealers who dont ask for ID. If they were legal and regulated like alcohol kids would have a much harder time getting them. Again your logic is flawed.

    It'd be interesting to see his parents' criminal history

    I pray that these kids of today will learn the danger of doing illegal drugs. They are ruining their lives. Parents check their room throughly and know who they are hanging out with. They are not going to tell you the truth, so search and find out for yourself. Save your child's life before its too late.

    Apples tend not to fall far from the tree. It'd be interesting to see his parents' criminal history. I'm sure he didn't get tased because unlike the other guy, he chose not to run. At 17, he showed better judgement than the 41 year old...Hmm, this guy might have a better chance to turn his life around. Good Luck young man.

    He only has a promising future if he gets his act together, let's hope that he does otherwise his family have a lot of suffering to go through, such a shame, 17 and in so much trouble, what a sad world this is...
