    17 and a 19 year olds with a gun. Break one law and then another. Was at a PAC meeting last month and there is an Defense attorney that actually feels sorry for these criminals and he states society ought to do more for these angered young men. Well, I say at least they got the bond right on this one. Send him and his friend to Central Prison.

    I would hardly call either one of these two a "man"

    ....simply based on their actions
