What stumps me is, why did Dillion have a busted nose?? Did anyone else notice that??
It makes me wonder if the 2 were in fact there, and they got into a brawl? IDK guess we'll find out eventually.
The two were most definatley involved, and probably knew what was going to happen before it actually did happen. Even if they didnt, I know the 2 personally, and I know that they are VERY capable of making decisions, VERY BAD at making the right decision.
Its a shame, but yes you are right, they will more than likely get a lesser punishment. Which is BS in my opinion. Hopefully the punks learn their lesson.
I just love how the death penalty is all pansy-fied these days. Whatever happened to hangings? They were cheap, and pretty simple.
I did notice that it looked as if someone had punched him pretty good. I would venture to say it could have started off as a fight. But with these type of people, there's no telling. They could've been off somewhere else harrassing other people before they committed the crime they're accused of. Maybe they aren't as tough as they thought they were?

Yes, the death penalty has become completely sissified. You'd think when someone said "death penalty" that they were talking about killing babies, judging from some of the looks you get when you mention "death penalty."

You're right, back in the old days you got a simple hanging. And back then, that was before all the great new technology we have now, like DNA. In these times, if you're convicted of something, the chances of you being guilty are much, more solid and certain. Sentencing someone to death and carrying it out nowadays should be so easy, but everyone's decided to give offenders a billion chances to find some ridiculous loophole to get them their sentence changed to life. I feel like if they can prove someone committed a heinous crime (beyond any reasonable doubt), they should be sentenced to death right then and there. Stop pussyfooting around and carry it out in a reasonable amount of time.

It's really a shame that they probably won't take these two accomplices that seriously when choosing their sentences. Someone that can make a choice like that...I just don't think they're a person of very good morals, and some people are most certainly not capable of change, even if they do spend a fair amount of time in prison. A lot of them come right back out, and revert to their old ways. There are people in this world that should just never be allowed to roam free in society, period.

I don't think they should be shown any leniency. They had a choice, and they made the wrong one. That alone is proof of their character, and they obviously aren't good people. Regardless of whether the accomplices thought they were supposed to "only burn a car" or not, even THAT is illegal. I'm sure they weren't dumb enough to think that setting someone else's car on fire isn't illegal.

If they had been smart, they wouldn't have gotten involved in this mess at all. But maybe it's better that they did get involved, because we sure don't need people like that out wandering around in society. There are many more like that out there, but at least there will be 2 less hopefully!

how do u know they opened the trunk back up to see if they were alive was u there ? but if this is true and she wasnt dead yet that makes it even more evil that they could have done this and knowing she had to suffer like that until they finally killed her

one of the officers told harleys family that the teeters dude admitted that hester re shot harley after he saw she was struggling and had not died yet, he admitted this in a written staement and he admitted they were both in the trunk and hester wanted to make sure they were dead before they burned the car, all three are guilty but at least one of the 3 is telling the truth of what really happened, and what he saw hester and powell do. this came from harley's family members i went with a friend to pay my respects to the family and they told it.

The circumstances surrounding the background and the "FULL STORY" do not matter. It's down right obvious that these boys did it. For those who doubt, look up their criminal record. When you hang you with the wrong crowd, stuff like this happens. They all knew what they were getting themselves into when they met, etc, etc, etc BUT the fact of the matter is that two people were MURDERED, Hester has a child around 2 years old Harlie has a child around 3 and I believe Shatley has a child. So three children bascially lost a parent, three sets of parents lost a child, and all over stupid jealousy and money. Hester had been threatening Shatley with letters while in jail. The murder was so stupid and pointless. Furthermore the boys did a shatty and stupid job of trying to cover it up. How could anyone ride like 30 minutes in a car with two dead bodies? That is so cold-hearted. Not to mention Hester dated Carter. Save the government some money and take all 3 boys out back and put a bullet in their head.

Your exactly correct. Financial costs to taxpayers of capital punishment is several times that of keeping someone in prison for life. Most people don't realize that carrying out one death sentence costs 2-5 times more than keeping that same criminal in prison for the rest of his life. How can this be? It has to do with the endless appeals, additional required procedures, and legal wrangling that drag the process out. It's not unusual for a prisoner to be on death row for 15-20 years. Judges, attorneys, court reporters, clerks, and court facilities all require a substantial investment by the taxpayers.
Im 50/50 on the issue. If it where ME i would rather be given capital punishment rather then sit in a cell the next 40 plus years doing nothing while everyone i love die, live, love and go on with life. To me it would be worse to watch time go by from a small cell, knowing i will never touch, love or spend time with my loved ones. I couldnt imagine my children calling someone else daddy, and i couldnt imagine not spending what life God gives me with my children.
If capital punishment was done like other countries whereas they take them out the day they are found guilty and blow there brains out in front of the public ect, then sure it would save tax payer money and it would send a very loud message to the next person who puts there self in a capital punishment situation.
As for this case... the person who asked why didnt Rhodhiss investigate this crime... thanks for the laugh during a very tragic time.
I do not know any of the people involved. I do know this much... the amount of money each person charged has will make all the difference in the final sentencing. Our legal system is SO corrupt it makes me puke to think about it. If they are all poor then they will all get the max. If they have money, then they will get a better deal.
Now, all this being said,
I totally agree with "aare" .... if it would have been my son or daughter I would honestly want the suspects loose so I could do justice myself"
Amen brother ... i would do whatever it took to get to each of them, make them suffer for as long as i could, then make sure they die slowly while having to look at a picture of my children until they fade straight to hell.
Bullets are darn cheap. If they took them out in the street and blew their brains out, ppl like begin to think twice about murder

Yeah I guess that they are almost half as bad as some retarted POS that can't show any respect to a family that has just lost someone.
And it dosen't matter what package you put it in or got it in you are still a lowlife peice of trash any way you look at it.

Better have a good talk with your grandson. This is the wrong crowd and chances are if he is hanging out with them, he is doing what they were doing. If he is on drugs get him help and be supportive. Let him know that this is the future drugs will bring.

They do all three deserve to stay in prison. However, none of them deserve to die, all three of them are still children of God no matter what they have done they all three still have a chance to turn their lives around by getting to know God and they all three should still have the chance to live right even in prison. no i dont think they should ever get out any of them they have lost their legal rights to walk on our streets and to drive down our roads but they as long as they live have the right to get to know God

I am praying for Kevin and Harleys family, ive known Kevin for many many years they deserved better than this.

Sure, let them get off from a "court technacality" or parole in a few years. This is why people commit such crimes, because they know they won't get in trouble. He made the choice to end his life when he took two other lives. God is the ultimate judge, but the death penalty worked for years. If Justin does "get right with God" then God will judge where to place him for eternity. But, we on this Earth can make sure he doesn't just get out and do this again.
