    “Names and details have not been released” Why the hell not? These guys haven’t been minors for thirteen years. Oh wait. I think I know. They are “from” Michigan by way of Tunisia or Algeria. Right? So once again, the press chooses to protect people who are not from this country and have absolutely NO interest in being or becoming Americans.
