these very kids have been on the streets of dowagiac causing terror for a couple years now! they have maxed the juvenile system and flexed it in every way! 2 years back they jumped a young man and put him in the hospital and got nothing out of it ! I hope this will put them away for a while and teach them a lesson !

Martrell jones needs to be set free from this situation he has a son, a scolarship for football to college and he was graduating. Everyone at home knows he had nothing to do with this crim hes jus an individual who made the mistake of wrong timing wrong place.

Believe me cass county better release him soon or their looking at a nice law suit messing around with pizza hut and i dont give a f**k if michigcan is broke. All these charges they put on martrell right now are considered false charges because theirs no evidence on this young man.

Um Jerry who are you? You live in Coloma miles AWAY from Dowagiac. And you are a lier because Michael has not lived in Dowagiac for more that three years! You are talking about children you don't even know. Anyone reading what "Jerry" wrote his is a lair and is obviously stereotyping, "what we all look a like." One more thing they put a child in the hospital? Ok what is his name and who is his parents because I surly would like to speak with these people, matter of fact Mr. Jerry I would like to speak with you as well. Because I need to know who to sue for slander! Oh do you think "we" are all igonorant as well? Sorry Mr. Jerry but you are surly going to know back up wha you have said!

Jerry White, obviously u think all ppl are the same but I'm here to beg the difference. I am the mother of Anteyon Russell. Anteyon was a honor roll student who played all sports and was raised in a great family environment thank you. As I speak its a very sad situation for all these young men, they don't deserve any of the stereotype from ppl like yourself. These young men as being teenagers just made a very bad mistake in life, this doesn't make them bad ppl or animals. We all as individuals have made mistakes in life that we regret doing, including you. They will get what God desires for them to have, the control is in his hands and only his hands. Right now your opinion doesn't even matter.

I am sorry I do not know the kids from chicago and it sounds like a very unfortuanate that they were involved with these other 2! and for the kid they put in the hospital was Micheal Rios, ask them about it they will know!For you information Im really from dowagiac. Anteyon ... honor roll student !????????? who are you trying to kid. And I never said they were bad people they have just been making mistakes for the past couple of years. Didnt micheal move back to chicago because he was fighting in the first place!? Thought so I mean I understand you are their mothers and will never admit to them doing wrong, but thats not getting them out of any trouble!!!

well im speaking on dylins behalf im his fiancee nd jerry u dnt kno wat the hell u talking bout. i dnt feel either one deserve to be in there it was petty aint nobdy get hurt it was a mistake made so now they learned from it nd dont deserve what yall tryna offer these young boys. Dylin still graduated highschool because his teachers kno that was not in his character. So idc what nobdy says i believe they deserve a second chance they still have a life can live yall need to be focused on real criminals nd murders and rapist yall jus to busy tryna make money off the innocent.

I served on the jury for the recent trial of this case and I can honestly tell you that my heart broke to see these boys in the situation they were in. They seemed to have such a promising future, when I looked at the faces of all the families all I could see was the loving looks exchanged and the offer of support they were trying to give. I can only assume since 3 of the 4 boys plead guilty that they did commit the crime. I think that maybe they simply got bored on their spring break and came up with this stupid idea to commit a robbery. I can only tell you that being on a jury and trying to decide the guilt of a child and being a mother myself was one of the more heart wrenching experiences I've had.

I just came back to try and take down my post because I just realized I got caught up in the drama of dowagiac, but since I am back if you ppl really know these boys than you know their parents right? Go to them and talk to them i am sure they would love to clear up any questions you may have or comment on your concerns. I know they would want to know about the terror they have caused i know without a doubt they would love to talk with you.
