not so fast to condemn

HOLD UP 2 PREVIOUS COMMENTORS, LET THEM HAVE THEIR DAY IN COURT BEFORE SUCH CRUEL COMMENTS, SEEN MANY TIMES THINGS DONT TURN OUT AS FIRST ACCUSED, EITHER WAY ? MANY MANY PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES IN LIFE AND MY HEART GOES OUT TO THEM FOR A OBVIOUS DUMB MISTAKE IF IN FACT THEY ARE THE GUILTY PARTIES ? ONCE AGAIN THE YOUNG TEENS OF OUR COUNTY AND MANY OTHER TOWNS HAVE POSSIBLY MADE A DUMB MISTAKE AND MOST LIKELY BECAUSE OF BOREDOM AND HAVING NOTHING TO KEEP THEM OCCUPIED, PLEASE LETS FIND SOME TYPE OF ACTIVITYS FOR OUR YOUTH OF 12 TO 18 YRS TO DO IN OUR STATE "GET ON IT ELECTED LEADERS". ALSO WOULD LIKE TO SAY GOD FORGIVES US OF OUR SINS IF WE JUST REACH OUT AND ASK FOR IT, AND AS I MYSELF HAVE NOT BEEN PERFECT YEP I HAVE SURELY ASKED. OBVIOUSLY THE PREVIOUS COMMENTORS ARE PERFECT AND NEVER MADE ANY MISTAKES HUH ? BE CAREFUL TOSSING THOSE STONES IN LIFE PEOPLE, AND I HOPE ALL WORKS OUT FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED .GIRLS AS WELL AS THE PROPERTY OWNERS .

Our elected officials have

Our elected officials have established something for teens to do with their time-- it is called school, you know that thing that these girls were skipping in order to get high and burn down a house. Instead of passing the buck to public officials why don't you get all righteous about the choices that they made to get into this situation or why their parents didn't know where they were or that they were using drugs and skipping school? Why not ask for personal responsibility instead of making it all someone else's fault.

"MISTAKES"? Surely you jest?

I won't even comment on your use of all caps to get your point across, but I'm going to comment on your use of the word, "MISTAKES".
"MISTAKES" are when you trip going down a flight of stairs. "MISTAKES" are handing someone a twenty when you thought it was a ten. "MISTAKES" are buying whole milk instead of 2%. "MISTAKES" are putting your underwear on inside out because you dressed in the dark.

"MISTAKES" are NOT the cognitive decision making efforts required to burn someones house down! That's called "REALLY, REALLY BAD JUDGEMENT"! There's a big difference here! The made decisions to enter the property, decisions to strike a match, decisions to set the fire to a dwelling (someone's property!) and decisions to leave and watch it burn.

Now, rethink your preaching a bit and properly term what these young ladies REALLY did!

Are you kidding me? These

Are you kidding me? These "little" girls already started their life on the wrong foot. Kudos to the parents. Next they will probably be featured on 16 & pregnant. Way to go you troubld little girls. I would love to see how you both will testify in court, will you be big and bad then??

YOU DON'T KMOW THESE GIRLS

YOU DON'T KMOW THESE GIRLS OR THEIR. PARENTS NOR DO YOU KNOW IF THEY'RE GUILTY! I KNOW 1GIRLS MOTHER AND I CAN TESTIFY WHAT A GOD LOVING WONDERFUL MOTHER SHE IS SHE'S BROKEN UP ABOUT THIS!! HER DAUGHTER IS A VERY KIND YOUNG GIRL

Rough trade

Good lord. Road hard and put up wet. Those "girls" are going to enjoy prison.
