    I can’t believe this. I went to school with all of these boys, besides carlos, and he quit. It’s a good thing they got caught and will hopefuly pay the price for what they did, but the sad part is how young they are. Something should deffinately change to keep these youngins off of the streets, get them in church or something parents!!! Watch who they hang out with, decipline must start somewhere, why not with you?
