    i knew them both and never liked them, they were always around my daughter doing drugs even while i was home. the sad thing was that they both had girlfriends but they were always fooling around with my daughetsr friends. im glad the police caught these "wanna be" thugs. all they were was a waste of life in this world. i hope they never get out especially the younger one.

    I was here at the hotel We weren't told anything we just saw the fire trucks and the police cars. They should have told us to leave the building because it could have exploded and a lot of people could have died including me. I just found out about it by doing a search on this site because I saw crime team 12 outside. They did good with getting the criminals out but they did wrong for the safety of the guests.
