But, he had his first felony conviction at 16.
--First of all, we have ALL done dumb things as kids, so that it NO excuse for his murder.
His parents were defense contractors in Guantanamo Bay. Their response was belated and fell short. Neither felt the need to take a leave of absence to help him with his issues or arrange his entry to live with them in Gitmo. One must wonder if there are younger siblings who are in similar circumstances?.
---Next, do not make assumptions!! His parents had only moved to Cuba a couple of months prior and they DID make arrangements for him to go to Gitmo which takes time and money, but unfortunately he was MURDERED before they we able to get him down there. Also, his older brother and his younger brother are great kids as was Jonathan. Every child deals with the trials and tribulations of life in different ways, so again, his mistakes do not justify his murder!!!
