    I hear that old Elvis Presley song, “Jail House Rock” playing so sweetly…

    These creeps will commit murder before their 25th birthdays

      your an idiot


    With the name “Dillon”, you knew he was headed for trouble. The next clue is his photo. Is that his booking photo, or did someone photo shop his face from a cell-phone pic taken five seconds after he dropped the soap?

    Sadly, we haven’t seen the last of “Dillon”.

    It is sad to see such quick judgement from people who have no clue who these young adults are. These kids have family members who love them, and only want what’s best for them. It is unfortunate they have made bad decisions and choices. Let’s be thankful that no one was harmed during this crime.
    What happened to the saying… “If you don’t have anything nice to say-don’t say it at all”?

      PLUR .this is most certainly a flawed up bringing. the lack of morals is of the charts. anyone that tries to use a fire arm to commit a crime is a risk to everyone theyre in contact with. PLUR if u really are trying to be plur u would be glad he didnt kill anyone. and hope he gets put away so he doesnt violate anyone elses lives.

      it was replaced by ” your a dill weed moron” are you for real !

  • FLOP

    PLUR …the age of Aquarius is long time over. Please come back to reality. These punks didn’t come from a loving home. If they did they would would be out working a seasonal job or trying to get into college. You give liberals a really bad name.

    Home invasions are increasing rapidly. These thugs know that there is less of a chance getting caught burglarizing a home then robbing businesses.
    So stay safe, be vigilant, install deadbolts and keep alarm activated. If you don’t have an alarm system you can get a a FREE 15 entry point Home Security System at http://www.homesecurityalarms.net

      Sorry, alarms only work once the person is inside. Unfortunately, too many people dont have a security door in the front.
      And the problem with the sliding glass door in the back is that every burglar has a key…a rock or hammer.
      So, the FIRST defense is don’t let the thugs get inside.
      Everybody needs security doors that cover the entire patio door. Basically a sliding security door.

      dont go to this site its a scam, nothing is free and nether is this , it is a monthly service company …you are a scammer.

  • PLUR

    Just for the record… at least one of these children came from a very loving home where he was provided every opportunity to succeed in life. Unfortunetly sometimes things are beyond control of a parent. Don’t be so quick to judge others….
    I’m guessing you call yourselves “christian” too!

    • Level

      These are not children, they are adult, of legal age.

      I guess they understand that now, if they didn’t before this stupid dangerous stunt.

    • Jesse Speck

      I know one of the guys and he always seemed like he came from a decent home and had everything he needed. never seemed like the type of guy to do this sorta thing, honestly it sounds alot like there were either drugs involved or he wanted to go to jail because i know for a fact that he is smart enough to know that if he were going to rob somebody he wouldn’t do it in the middle of the day and he was attempting to be malicious in doing this that gun would have been fired.

      • swisherspliter

        totally agree with jesse, dillon had alot of support from his family, a nice car, an awesome mom, he started making bad decisions like hanging out with the wrong people and doing drugs that make you not be able to make decent choices. Dillon is a good guy but he needs to learn how to live in this society. im glad he is in jail and not dead people have guns for protection and if someone comes in your house u have the right to use it. i hope he learns the biggest lesson of his life and doesnt choose to go back to the same thing as before. MUCH LOVE – Pablo

      • Jesse Speck

        and (if*) he were trying to be malicious

    • AMR

      Born again I’m guessing…

  • plur

    Thank you Jesse!

  • Neighbor of victim

    I feel bad for their parents and the victim. The parents taught these kids right from wrong, they made the bad decision, and now need to face the consequences. Young adults, please get a clue, drugs lead to things like this. Forget drugs, get a good education, a good job, and make this country great again. Pay your parents back with the love they gave you.

  • Lan Brad

    This could of been prevented if they would of had security doors. They even have one for the rear sliding glass door now.

    I will cut the guy some slack because he saved an abused dog-that is a slight sign of conscience, empathy, etc so all hope is not lost. This also doesn’t mean hehad a bad upbringing (family, parents) , it’s usually the ones that DO come from good families etc, i think there is still hope for him, definately.
