  • Glad they’re going to prison why aren’t more people going to prison when people die who had so many vehicle manslaughter cases and people just walk don’t understand it and never will

  • So they get out on half-time? For killing a 14 year old?! WTF happened to the death penalty?! Some cases really do deserve it.

  • In my 1911 I trust

    How come its not a murder charge? Just because the kid didn’t die on the spot doesn’t mean that they didn’t kill him.

  • We’ll be hearing of these fellows’ exploits again in a few years.

    They all look hella creepy, glad they’re going where they belong. We need much stronger murder laws, there’s lots more just like these that need to be taken off Humboldt’s streets for a long time. Maybe if they get out at 50 or 60 years old they’ll be calmed down. If we were a smart society, any gang homicide involvement would bring a life sentence for the first offence.

  • why are gang symbols, tattoos and tagging allowed period. antisocial criminals

  • 16 years for being involved in killing someone, wtf. Other states it would be life. One thing for sure here, do not send the crew back to Mexico for time, no bail out. Praying for our criminal justice system. Thank you Trump this is exactly why I will vote for you again. Clean it up!

  • Didn’t the young guy just pick up fresh charges in jail? A weapon and threatening an officer or something?

  • If I’m not mistaken, the 14 year old victim was dumped on a lawn and bled to death all night. It was cold and raining. He was still alive when the sun came up and a passerby noticed him and called for help. The alleged reason he was murdered was because he told some people that the guy who killed him asked to be placed in protective custody while in juvenile detention. It’s horrifying to live in a world and a town where human beings think torturing a kid to death is an appropriate response to spreading a rumor. Does killing him somehow prove it wasn’t true?

  • These are the types that need deported! We have enough garbage in America, dont need mexican imports like these

    • They just came here to work and for a better life. But then whitey discriminated against them so they were forced into a life of crime. Diversity is our strength. If you don’t believe that you’re a fascist.

  • Now when they go to prison they all can get 1/3 or a 33.3% tear drop tattoo put on thar dumb face
