Youthful offenders names cannot be released by law. Ask around you will figure it out. I know but I won't tell.

Hey Regelski , why don't you move to one of the Nordic/Scandinavian countries then. Not as likely to get guns with the new laws?? How ignorant is that statement? Guns are and always will be as easy to get as anything else that has been made illegal by our government. Everything can be had for the right price.

Nice Regelski, let's give them a hug and they won't threaten another human being with a knife? The socio-economic background for a teenager is this. They see something they want and they take it. It works in every TV program and video game they watch/play so why wouldn't it work in reality? Stop "hugging away" and start punishing bad behavior and then it will stop. But the PC band plays on...

Regelski are you kidding me, the current law(the unsafe act) prevented these two criminals from possessing a gun? Please explain after how many years of stupid laws the deaths continue in Chicago.

Just because they are 16 & 17 their names are withheld. Baloney they should be embarrassed and have their names published. They will get a slap on the wrist and laugh it off. No lesson will be learned there. Their next robbery will be something bigger.

Steiner: were it not for the current laws, they would have had guns!

Concerned: It is likely that they'll get a light sentence but they're not as likely to get guns as was the case in the past--unless they go to neighboring states.

Everyone else: what are the socioeconomic circumstances that lead to open armed robbery in a community such as this? Have the current 'austerity' economic ideologies contributed? Can you imagine countries where these events are rare? They exist, plentifully: they're called "social democracies" and, rather than dog eat dog economic policies, the governments (e.g., Nordic/Scandinavian)greatly minimize the likelihood of such acts. The "social" in social democracies puts the "us" before "me"; or understands the "me" only in terms of what's best for "us" (all.
