I'D TALK TO PD & SEE WHAT THEY THINK.Hey it's a thought!It's a start.Good luck in finding the jerks who invaded the privacy of your home.It's an awful feeling..I know cuz my home was burglarized about 10 yrs ago & I was devastated.Things will never be the same.I still do not feel comfortable knowing ppl went through all my personal belongings-even ate food & had a few beers to boot.My son came home & caught this as-hole & he did 1 yr in jail for grand larceny.This perp did all the home break-ins & some businesses last yr in DK.& ran from PD wth ski mask on.He

I don't think this is their first offense, rather the firs time they got caught. Most likely they'll get youthful offender status, records sealed, and learn from their mistakes on how not to get caught next time.

@ Christopher: You said some of todays local finest citizens have done worse when they were younger & your point being is what?? You don't know what happened to them.Besides we are NOT TALKING ABOUT PRETENSE.WE ARE SPEAKING OF NOW>>THIS DAY & AGE.NOT 30,40,50 YRS AGO.And these children have to be taught straight from yhr jump or they will get lost in the mix & still be spit out worse than before.Detention centers,etc are not the only place that youths come out worse..It's hands on EXPERIENCE LIVING IN THE REAL WORLD COMMITTING CRIMES & ENJOYING IT & STEPPING UP TO BIGGER & RISKIER THINGS!! And your comment about if they robbed your home you'd have them do hands on work for you like shoveling- mow the lawn,etc> ya might even wanna have them cook you dinner & draw your bubble bath water.While they are working off the crime they did to you they'd be scoping out the neighborhood & then they'd make better plans to rob other homes- businesses. >&g

Chris, I accept your applause. My parents were successful in that, neither I or my siblings ever burglarized a house. Did I throw a snowball at a car in winter, get caught with a beer, or ring a doorbell and run away? Yes, guilty as charged. To compare my "bad behavior" with a bunch of criminals breaking/entering and burglarizing a house is simply rationalizing their reprehensible behavior. That's a common bleeding heart tactic. BTW, having a bunch of thugs shovel your walk is not punishment.

Christopher, my home was burglarized this past Wednesday. The thieves stole my 7 year olds X-Box, games & Kindle. The worst thing was trying to explain to him how someone stole his things. They also stole my husbands wedding ring & a ring custom made for me for the birth of my child, as well as other items. These are sentimental and you can not put a price on them. These juvenilles know what they're doing & have no fear. In no way, shape or form would I want these "perps" anywhere near my home...then they would just be able to take an inventory of what they're interested & do it again, or send their friends (accomplices) to do it! Stiff punishment will teach them a lesson.

I'm sorry, I don't have ESP, so was unable to ascertain from the article what was stolen, any information about those arrested except that they were juveniles, and answered accordingly. I also applaud all of those in the area who have never apparently made a mistake in judgement in their youth, nor apparently even know anyone who has! Good for you!

If they are older than 16 and found guilty, put them in Mayville for a stretch. There must be consequences for the actions, first offense or not. It's the only way for them to learn and to teach others by example.

Christopher if you had any idea what these little bastards stole from these families, the sentimental, irreplaceable items that these innocent families lost forever you would feel a little more strongly about what should happen to them. Or maybe you would only fight for stricter punishment if they stole something from you..how about the only thing you had left from your parents that passed away??? From what I have heard these kids aren't 11 they are closer to 18. Surely are making decisions like having sex and driving..old enough to know right from wrong..they have ruined the lives of the people they robbed..they didn't just steal money, they took whatever they saw, even if it had no monetary value.

Yes, Darkstar, I would. Some of todays finest local citizens have done worse as youths. I didn't say they shouldn't be punished. But community service, dishing out food at a Soup Kitchen, picking up litter, that sort of thing would be far preferable to incvarceration for most youths. Notice, I said MOST. I change attitude dramatically for violent crimes. If it were my home robbed, I'd love to have the perps mow my lawn, trim bushes, etc., etc for the summer, or shovel out my driveway and sidewalk for an entire winter.

Names Please. They and their families need to be embarrassed so that they think twice about doing it again. Chris you are truly a bleeding heart.

I wonder if Christopher would feel the same if his house was robbed by these crooks.

As for a second chance, yes they should get one, but only after a severe punishment for thier criminal activities.

This wasn't a violent crime. They are all minors. Depending on records, they deserve a chance to change. So-called "Youth Detention Centers", like Industry and Elmira were nothing but prisons for kids, generally spitting them out worse than when they went in. If violence is involved, truly dangerous behaviors, that's one thing, but lumping all juveniles into one basket is just ignorant.

Juveniles need to start being held accountable for their actions.They usually get a slap on the hand in the courts & get put on probation..Then they con't to do the same things & hang with the same crowd. An example has to be set somewhere.So if these young people know they will get stiffer punishment for their actions they just might think twice before they break the law.This nonsense has to stop NOW!! In their young minds if they can get away with it once they probably feel they can do it again & again with the same outcome>>just a warning - a slap on the hand -probation> when ya actually think about it you never read in the paper well this young person on probation for whatever reason violated his/her conditions and now he/she will go back to court for what? what repercussions when they violate? Youth detention centers? I don't think I've ever heard of or known of any young person going to a place like that.Nip it in the bud right from the start.
