Scuzzbuckets of the Week Part Deux
The parents of these fifteen year old youths who murdered a young woman in cold blood for no reason.
The teens, identified as Drey Lewis and Reggie Douglas, were taken to the jail at 3:40 p.m. (January 22, 2009) They were each booked with one count of first-degree murder.
The District Attorney's Office is weighing whether to prosecute the boys as adults in Criminal District Court. The suspects said nothing to news media gathered at the jail. If convicted, they face life in prison.
Where were these mothers when their sons were out there trolling the streets for a victim? Where were these mothers when it was time to teach these children about respect - for both self and others? Where were these mothers when it was time to give the kids a curfew? I wouldn't let my daughter roam the streets after dark when she was 15 - call me an old fashioned mother.
But these mothers finally had to face the music and turn their "babies" in for murdering 39 year old Wendy Byrne for no damned reason.
