  • RU Kidding!

    Why is that kid smiling? Did he just earn his gang banger badge of honor?

    No remorse in your mug shot should get you life in prison.

  • Jerome W.

    Nice job Nmandi.. something to be proud of. Now try to look as unfazed as possible at what just happened, because you easily could be a double murderer. Smile for the camera!

  • Sylvia

    The first boy looks angry and very troubled. Just a matter of time before he actually murders someone. You can see it in his eyes that its coming at some point.

    such angry remarks could only come from one disenfranchised person.

  • Concerned in Halesite

    This wouldn’t have happened if North Amityville had Shot Spotter!……….yeah, right 🙂

  • chris

    I guess maybe one should ask why is a 16 year old girl from HS in Amityville at midnight?

    • Anonymous

      Maybe because it was a Friday night & a kids party!!! Also maybe because most of her family lives there including me…Who just so happens to be her god-mother!! I answer your question now can you answer mine??? WTF does that has anything to do with her being shot???

    Two lives wasted. They are on their way to living a life with a prison record. And they just might find out what prison life is all about being someone’s “wife”.

  • When does it stop?

    At this point in their lives, they are nothing. They can barely speak, and when they do, it’s hip-hop. This will never change. “I don’t live in your world.”. Their education is over. They have no skills of any kind. They are not a part of normal society, and they will never be; so they make their own. All you need is to look tough, buy a gun, and become a part of a crew. We make thousands of these turds every day….because we keep feeding them & housing them for FREE!

    • enough is enough

      I’m with you 100% on that statement. The bleeding heart liberal agenda “created” these turds. They most likely have been living in sec.8 or some other form of tax subsidized housing. Never been taught anything, except how to get over, on the system. Next, it will be- “we owe it to them, to try and rehabilitate them”. More lib crap. I say, cut our losses now and fry ’em.

      Sorry I disagree, I dont think that boy Adam who shot 26 people at the sandy hook school was on public assistant . Stop looking for excuses. Parents send their children to school expecting the teachers to teach them what they should be doing,which is love towards humanity

  • You People are Disgusting

    What these kids did was horrible, but these ignorant comments made by you are the saddest of all. So judgemental and WEAK. You people are Disgusting.

    • It may sound so but......

      there is truth in some of what they are saying. We go only to extremes, and never find the middle. There needs to be humanity and understanding, but there also needs to be extremely judicial and punitive action. The lack of a middle ground is putting innocent lives in danger from children who are willing to carry guns. If you carry a gun, someone is going to get shot. The people of the community deserve protection more than those who choose to carry those guns.

    • Village Eyes

      @You People Are Disgusting: These two fine specimans shot several rounds into a crowd, injuring a CHILD from our neighborhood and a teen from Copaige. You BETCHA I judge them.

      Not a single excuse for this “horrible” as you put it, thing they did. That, in your eyes somehow is not so bad compared the written reactions …mere words….is somehow worse than bullets in flesh? I judge the shooters and I judge your silliness.

    you all sound so dumb Nnamdi graduated at 16 from high school was in college for radiation therapy and was trying to switch majors to construction project managing and Rodney was starting school 2012 fall for nursing . . . to say they have no skill is ignorant because you do not know them BUT what they did if they did it was wrong and they will have to deal with the consequences when it comes but to all you fools that just judge a book by it’s cover sound retarded to the people that know these kids

  • Heavenly place

    Parents send their kids to school expecting the teachers to do the parents job, come on SMH parents must teach their kids love for humanity it has nothing to do with receiving public assistant ,if that was the case than why did that boy Adam kill those innocent babies n the 6 adults ?
