Don't believe everything

1st of all the school has nothing to do with it and 2nd no one deserves to be called trash. We don't really even know what happened but yet everyone is talking as if they were there and saw everything. People say they killed the do you know its true?

Oh Goody!!!

3 more pieces of trash for my hard earned tax money to have to support the rest of their lives. Sure wish capital punishment was used more often and swifter. Might put some fear in some of these hoodlums. And if not, at least we would be rid of the oxygen thieves.

how dare you

Trash? Tuhhh.i happen to know two of them very well and they are very smart and gifted in athletics! Yes they made some very bad decisions but they shouldnt be labeled as trash! Get over it.

No, How dare you

It does not matter if you know them or not, the truth of the matter is, they took a life, and anyone that can do that is trash. They must not be to smart to go bragging about what they did. I bet they are not bragging now.


Being good at athletics does not give you a free ride to do as you please. In fact being a good athlete has nothing to do with why they were arrested, keep in mind its MURDER thats not what you call just a bad decision. So yes if they have done it they are trash.


You're funny!

I hope that gifted in

I hope that gifted in athletics means they can run fast, as this is what they will need to do when Big Bubba gets behind them in prison.

Shooting and robbing is not

Shooting and robbing is not a sport at ECHS. Who cares who you know? If you hang with them then that makes you a piece of trash. Everyone in the community knew they were going to wind up dead or in prison. Are you? There is a couple more remaining that hangs with this gang of boys. The cell is waitng on them as well.
