    Who keeps bailing these people out of jail? Let them stay in, serve time and save your money!!! They have no place on the streets to continue to terrorize others!!!

    Looks like two fine outstanding examples of today's lost generation. Best I can say for Mr. Shavaye Faronte Brooks and Mr. Tremaine Malik Lane is get used to life in the jailhouse, you have no place in civilized society.

    Early enough into their criminal careers to be back on the streets attempting to kill others before they're old enough to even vote. Kudos to all the great parents out there letting society try to clean up the mess they never even began to care about. And leave it to a sympathetic judge/jury to feel sorry for these kids and let them out on parole after a few months.

    When they look at the statistics and people wonder why the ratio of one group has a higher rate of death row inmates than another heres your sign,they get started earlier and are let off the hook only to come back later in life and do it again without fear of the law since they were let loose the first time.

    I hope all recover and that they throw the book at Brooks who should have stayed in jail after violating his first arrest. Just put them back on the street to commit more severe crimes, yep our justice system back at work again.....
