    Kind of funny that at 1am, there were no adults at home and even funnier that the little hoodrats already knows how to lie to the police and file false police reports. I would suggest that all taxpayer aid to this worthless family is cut off completely and the 12 year old is placed into foster care!

    Hmm, so you know the family personally/? Is it possible the parent was at work? The article doesn't really tell much, but yet you assume they are on public assistance and the kids are hood rats. Must be nice to be clairvoyant.

      Hey dumb Dolores: get a frickin clue. It is what it is. Parent at work? Yeah, right. Why is it people like you continue to give punks like these the benefit of the doubt? In another few years, it's quite likely they'll be committing more serious crimes on innocent and unsuspecting people like me.

      Dolores you are obviously a fool, and maybe when this little ghetto fucker will be knocking on your door whe he gets out to rob, and shoot your ignorant ass!

    So, who in the family obtained the weapon that I'm sure wasn't legally registered since it was stolen?
    The oh so responsible parent, or the little 14 year old who I'm sure is nothing but a good boy who is working his hardest to make a good life. Wonder what gang he belongs to?
    Wake up Dolly, this is not a little town anymore with home town problems….
