    Agree.



    Kudos to victim! To hell with the perp.
    Agree.

    Too bad for the dad but there is no one to blame but his kid and possibly the parents who raised him to be an armed robber. Wah-Wah-Wah....


    RNY said that he felt bad for the kid's family. I do too. I think the father was reacting to his grief when he spoke. There is no-one to blame except the two who attempted the robbery.

    You can't control another person's behavior. Do you really think that parents intentionally raise their kid to be an armed robber?


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    Several thoughts:

    1. East Coast, biatch!
    that was exactly my first thought
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I don't think his parents sent him to school to be an armed robber, no. And I also conceed that sometimes, no matter what we do as parents our kids can take the wrong roads. But, that being said, a LOT of reasons kids turn out the way they do falls upon the shoulders of the parents.

    But I do feel sadness for the father. If I lost one of my children it would crush me. But his anger is misdirected if he feels that somebody should pay for his child's death. Someone has already paid. Nobody owes him anything.

    Yes. I agree with that. I would be devastated if I lost my son. I think the father was reacting to his grief. I understand that since I wanted someone to pay when I lost my sister to breast cancer. I think it's a natural reaction. I just think that the father was reacting to his loss. Is anyone reasonable when facing such a tremendous loss?

    2. I'm very glad for the felony-murder rule.
    3. In all seriousness though, I do feel bad for the dead kid's family. The fact that they had to witness that must suck, though you have to wonder what the **** is wrong with the kid that he's robbing people "around the corner" from his house.
    4. Sorry dad, the guy getting robbed didn't take **** away from you. Your idiot son did.
    You have just gotten yourself THANKED more times than a christmas turkey and for good reason,"you`ve expressed many of our thoughts and feelings in, a disturbing matter, in thoughtful terms,freeing us from haveing to go there.(...but we will anyway).

    I suppose not. Emotions have a way of clouding our judgement. It's only human. I'm sorry to hear about your sister.

    study long, study wrong.

    The east coaster probably did give this some thought,and if anger drove his response ,he was still right in what he did,(and that moment of anger will haunt him for the rest of his life). WE like to bitch and moan about what is proper for our criminals. There are those who would find fualt with the victim here,and which victim are we talking about ?...The victim of his own actions or the one who was the victim of tolerance in our limp wristed society,..."OH those poor criminals". I`m sorry for the whole damned mess.... My recent,(very recent), abuse at the hands of a HISPANIC criminal here in what used to be Nashville,USA, has left me wanting some amount of blood. The MS 13`s blood is of some relief.

    I have no idea what you're trying to say. Can you clarify what you're talking about?

    I agree with you here. I'm sorry about your sister.
