    They were on an armed robbery spree. March 11, 13, 18 and culminating in murder on March 24. I believe the March 11 security cam footage got them id'ed once posted by media outlets this week, after the murder during similar robbery on same road. Shame it wasn't released to media March 12. Or was it and the media thought it wasn't enough of a story yet? Those brothers in the Oakwood home invasion had also been on a spree. Sprees tend to get more desperate and more violent with each new crime.

    25? Hopefully he didn't breed and we'll have another batch of his kind to deal with. He should get swift trial and sentence and be out before you know it.

    "I was thinking the same thing. He's lived a HARD life!"- if convicted, it's going to get a whole lot harder!!

    They won't give them much time after all they only killed someone it wasn't like they were selling drugs were you are assured to get a long sentence.
    =====================

    Are you implying drug dealing poison peddlers should be looked at as "thoughtful" like these two murderers? I'm confused----------------

    Glad he turned himself in. He speaks to some level of regret in him.

    - They think they'll just get a slap on the hand, a few months in jail, then will get out...because that's what wayyy too often happens in the US, and it's shameful!!!
    Criminals should receive the same treatment they gave their victim(s). PERIOD!!!

    Hope these murderers felt the $200 bucks they got off this guy after they killed him was worth it. They likely already blew it all on booze and dope. Now they go to jail.

    What do cretins like this think?
