His life's already ruined lady. Maybe you should do some research before you speak. This kid was pretty much raised to be the way he is. Been in jail multiple times, only 17 and has tons of felonies. He's never going to stop being a "hoodlum" and he belongs in jail, clearly. So learn facts about a person before you say the charges should be dropped. Go read his twitter or something. That'll show you how he really is. Oh and you probably wouldn't react the same way if it was YOUR vehicle that got stolen and wrecked. Am I right?
