  1. I would like to see a follow up on the prosecution of this person written up in newspaper. Perhaps knowing the prosecution and years in Jail will discourage other young folks committing a crime like this. When we have freedom little do they know that being lock up will be a different story for them. Young people have no Clue. It is a Sad situation for all involved, the families and friends left behind to deal with this senseless act.
