    Are you kidding me? They are kids. Yes, they clearly have piss poor parents, but they need guidance and motovation, and positive role models. Not to be locked away!! Thank God I am not paying for stupid childhood mistakes the rest of my life.

    This is my neighborhood, and I only hope that the kids get help.
