    hmmm, they look pretty thuggy to me. Hope they have a good, long stay and make lots of close, “personal” friends at Lew Sterret.

    With our legal system the way it is, they’ll be back out on the streets the day after they get caught. Just long enough to get fed.

        “She looks like “he” and “he” looks like “she”.

    Let’s return to the days of old, and put a bounty on them.

  6. Proud2BTexan says:

    I agree with previous commentors – I’m not sure which is which either. One has a hairy chin, and the other has a hair lip. Maybe CBS11TV should put their names above their pics so we can tell which is which….

  7. Amanda says:

    The “girl” looks about 12 years old.

      wow do you even know what hispanics stand for ?????? wath a smart man

  9. Matt Vega says:

    Hey Tim,I resent your little smirk and comment “hispanics “, The victim is also hispanic, This two thugs are just that thugs…Don’t try that racist b.s that only hispanics commit crimes,Whites commit as many and more than hispanics.

    1. Jess Lin says:

      talk about racist comments…….

  10. annonymous says:

    I know her I used to have her in high school but who knows where she’s at now I know you can find her on facebook.

  11. FedUpTxn says:

    Matt Vega, you could not be more WRONG! Do your research. You’ll find according to the FBI that SEVEN out of TEN of the most wanted violent criminals in this country are from south of the border and have multiple ID! Many list themselves as white to skew the crime statistics. Americans are no longer fooled and want this crime wave to STOP! It’s not an issue of race. It IS an issue of crime and financial ruin of our country!

    1. Jess Lin says:

      I think YOU should run for governor. FINALLY someone with some brains! YES! Everytime I get on here and “speak the truth” my comments either get dropped off the comment board or people get so p.o.’d they start accusing me of being a racist but*head. You go FedUpTxn…I am right there with you. Open up the paper for the last month and cut out ALL of the violent crime stories and tell me folks, what nationality is guilty of committing the majority of those violent crimes….go on, I, and other fed up people, are waiting. Yeah, truth hurts doesn’t it! Thanks FedUpTxn for your honesty!
