As the suspects had an opportunity to flee prior to the shooting, yet went back after merchandise, this is truly a premeditated crime. it is my understanding that robbery with a gun, you can be sentenced 20 years. Additional years should be added for child endangerment. I hope that they can prove 1st degree murder, but if not the stiffest punishment allowed by law.

The stiffest punishment might be fine but with Pamela Price as the DA these people will likely serve little, if any, time behind bars. There is no crime, including premeditated murder, that Pamela Price feels merits jail time. Her current record speaks loudly for itself. She wants to "divert" rather than punish. This murderer had a long record already, had she been in prison she could not have killed this innocent victim. Pamela Price will have much more blood on her hands before she eventually gets recalled.
