Isn't this where we turn him into a celebrity because someone likes his picture ? We all loose the fact he is just a THUG and Will end up where he deserves ! Dead, incarcerated, or in hell. Maybe we should give him medical and housing benifits too, or is that just for those who break immigration laws ?
Good luck America, we need it !

It's sad to think that an 18 year old has that much anger in him. I can't imagine what his childhood was like. His parents, if he had any, must have been pretty bad. By the look on his face he'll end up in jail soon enough, or dead. Sad really.
Years ago someone like that may have had the option to join the military so he might be given an opportunity to turn his life around.

I respectfully suggest that Ed knows not what he says. Surely Ed, you are just needling folks like me. Are three murders in 30 days are non-violent felonies in your mind?

@Ed: "Years ago someone like that may have had the option to join the military so he might be given an opportunity to turn his life around."

The military is not interested in trying to rehabilitate broken or defective individuals. The military weeds those people out with pre-screening background checks and psychological exams. Basic training also weeds a lot of people out who are identified as having behavioral problems. And, yes, anyone who is capable of committing three murders within 30 days is seriously broken.

Quite the contrary, I acknowledge this kid is a bad guy who needs to be put away (one way or the other) ASAP.
It's just that he's only 18 and surely didn't start out that way as baby. He was turned into a warped monster by others who were supposed to care for him and raise him right.

What you're saying is not necessarily true. Some people are born that way. Others are turned bad by their environment. A very simple and crude way of stating the basic difference between psychopaths and sociopaths is this: Psychopaths are born while sociopaths are made.

Damon - yes I know nowadays the military is selective and won't take troublemakers, I just recall long ago that kids in trouble were sometimes given a choice - jail or the Army - and often times a good drill sgt could staighten out a kid like this before he got into real trouble. Too late for this kid though with what he's done. I was lamenting the fact that this choice is no longer there for those that could be helped and steered away before they kill someone.

I agree that some are born with a mental deficiency that makes them do things they shouldn't. But I feel (and I'm not a psychologist) a lot of kids who end up like the one in this story are the way they are due to abuse and neglect they've suffered as a child. By now it's too late for this young man. I'm sure very soon he'll end up dead or in jail for the rest of his life.
I just find it sad that at 18, while most kids his age are graduating from high school and looking forward to life ahead, this kid has killed 3 people. It's sad that his anger has ended the lives of 3 people, as well as made a complete mess of his own life.
I feel bad for his victims, and for him. Such a waste.

At one time, Charles Manson was someone's baby boy. So what! And as someone who was in the army 50 years ago, I seriously doubt if the military could have done anything with him.

@Ed, I fear you are wrong. I predict that this criminal will not end up in jail for long. He will be released for some lame reason and he will commit another heinous crime.

Are there people here that seriously think it would be a good idea for people like this guy to go in the military and learn combat tactics?

Good grief, that's like sending an aspiring thief to locksmith school.
