    If our dear sweet President, who promised jobs during his first term would have followed thru, maybe our young people could be working instead of getting themselves in so much trouble. I guess that’s how politics work lie,lie,lie, anything to win!

        As a family memeber…I agree with Bishop..You can only impart what is right.. after that its up to the individual.. as for the parenting part.. both of ondra’s parents are deceased.. i must say its not an excuse but a circumstance ..this is NOT what they taught him. sometimes we fall when we have to deal with these types of misfortunes.. I will say for the most part he has tried to do right… but the good book does say of the apostle paul I do believe everytime u desire to do good evil is always present… fyi… karma is something else!!

      These scum do not want to work. They want easy money and think that it is OK to take what they want and do what they please. I have to agree with others, they had no guidance at home at all.
      I am sure this is not the first time they are in trouble with the law and it will not be the last.

    “This could have been my son” Another innocent Trayvon minding his on business and caught up in a fight. At least the victim as Obamacare insurance to pay for his gun shot wound.

    19 and 20 years of age??? This has nothing to do with the parenting and this has nothing to do with having a job or not having a job this has to do with common sense. Which apparently both young boys are lacking. We as parents can only do so much once our children reach a certain age they are responsible for their own actions and these boys are well past that age. Its not the gun itself that harms people its the person controlling it and the person controlling it didn’t have even common sense to know not to pull the trigger nor did he have enough common sense to know that he would get caught. As for the one running he will also be caught and when he is it will be twice as bad on him for the fact that he ran. But in all due respect you cannot blame the parents because these are two men not children and you cannot blame the economy because as young as these two are they could be in college or working a part time job somewhere.

      parenting is where common sense is learned.
      As a parent of 3 i know full well my job is to teach my kids right from wrong. If I don’t do it, nobody else is going to do it for me. I call it RESPONSIBILITY it seems like someone dropped the ball with these kids

    I know both these men and they have been in contact with law enforcement since they were juveniles… Call it what u want.. Parenting, lack of self control, or just sorry.. It doesn’t take back the fact that working tax payers are going to have to support them.. What has this country come to.

    Some of these kids now days are just lazy,since they like to shoot people and things,putting on the front line some where with a gun,They can kill people and make money too!!!

  • Bishop

    As a relative of the man at large I will say that the facts will present themselves shortly.. Regarding the comments on parenting you can raise children up they way they should go.. doesnt mean they will GO! How many of us really exceeded in all of our parents expectations?? I dont condone violence as well as reference to scum without the facts

  • Ronald Jones

    It’s not always bad parenting…so many ppl come from good upstanding homes and turn out doing bad things…not always the parents fault….”freewill” people choose to be who they r….stop blaming upbringing its not always the go to answer
