    LamborghiniMercy stated: "Two misguided young men who ultimately chose to ruin their own life. This goes back to my yesterday's comment about Bev wanting to better fund education, but "funding" is not the problem, overlooking bad communities from the local level is."

    99.99 percent of people who do happen to be misguided do not do things that rise to the level of being charged with murder. There is no excuse for murder one bit at all.

    OMG!!_ I can't imagine what goes through these kids minds now adays - 16 and 18 - had their whole lives ahead of them and now they have got to live with it the rest of their lives. IT's a shame how these kids are now adays - I am glad I was raised in the 70's and 80's - I keep telling my kids - we need to rewind time -

    muggs, who are they? I don't think I heard a word from you yesterday as I read about the man that killed his brother and his friend. As a matter of fact there were very few comments about that story.

    Same type,same crimes,no wonder they fought so hard for the racial injustice law,their the ones that need all the help they can get,trick to staying out of prison is to not do anything that will get you sent to prison,I don't believe they get that.

    Same ole,same ole, just look at the pictures of these young men. I lived in Goldsboro all 68 years, but this kind of crime has been on the uprising lately. Reminds me of Durham. Nothing to kill someone today for nothing at all. 16 years old,I'm a bad guy now, I killed someone,MAN ain't I bad? Well,may you spent the rest of your life in prison, just watch out for the man with the soap.
