Those aged 18-20 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. It's unfortunate that a man got murdered by a young man and boy so they deserve prison sentences which are of at least 9 years.

Re LibertyForAll's comment:
NINE years??!? What say more like SIXTY-nine years? I don't need those "men," "boys," -- MURderers getting out in their 20's and living around ME!

When you give them their first meal in jail/prison, accidentally put some rat poison or cyanide in their fried chicken. Or stick them in a hole in the ground until they kill themselves. We don't need these people. They serve no useful purpose. They're career bad guys/thugs who bounce from one crime to another. Their mothers should have had an abortion. They obviously weren't capable of raising these guys to be regular, law-abiding citizens who punch a clock every day & lead quiet lives. We don't let mad, rabid dogs to roam the streets with impunity. Put these knuckleheads out of OUR misery. Quit paying outrageous sums every year to keep violent criminals in jail where they lift weights eevry day do they can come out & be stronger than when they went it. Makes ZERO sense. TIME TO TAKE OUT THE TRASH.
