Teens caught on video beating homeless man ID'd
Miami Herald ^

Posted on 01/14/2006 10:01:14 PM PST by jakerobins

Two teenagers caught on video beating a homeless man were identified late Saturday as they prepared to turn themselves in to police. Thomas Daugherty, 17, and Brian Hooks, 18, both of Plantation, are also suspected in the bludgeoning of two other homeless men in a three-hour spree in Fort Lauderdale last Thursday, said Fort Lauderdale police spokeswoman Detective Katherine Collins. One of the victims died. Police said they got more than 100 tips on the case from people who saw the video. Collins said Saturday night that the teens' attorneys were arranging their return to the area and their surrender to face charges of murder and aggravated battery.

Good! What cowardly thugs--three creeps with baseball bats attacking one sleeping homeless man at a time. Throw the book at the morons.

Burial is cheap, my wish is to turn them out to their victims peers which will not happen. The long (legal required) death sentence waltz willl commence. I don't see these dudes lasting too long in prison in their present mindset as bats are not standard issue. To paraphrase F Gump : Stupids does as stupids follow.

Those that beat the homeless man to death should be executed by the same method.

That would be justice.

A large majority of the homeless are mentally ill, alcoholics and drug addicts. Often in combination. Sad and pathetic; they don't deserve to be beaten to death.

The murderers in this case might very well be meth users. This drug often makes people very violent, along with loss of any normal sense.

Looks like first degree murder, tried as adults. And the death penalty.

"I don't believe these guys will last long in the general population."

This is Florida, not Massachusetts. They'll be on death row, convicted of premeditated murder after lying in wait. There are two surviving witnesses and the accomplices in the van will testify against them for reduced sentence. Since they're the wrong color, Sarandon and Robbins won't be coming.

Meth is really bad. An ex of mine was a bouncer and got stabbed by a meth-head who was tweaking and had been up for over 5 days straight.

When I was a youngster we used to steal several hundred golf balls from a nearby driving range (naughty, naughty). We took them back eventually. However we did not bludgeon people to death.

After Texas, Florida is the worst place to murder. Ol' Sparky will be happy to meet this scum. Meth is not an excuse for murder; drinking too much beer maybe, but not murder.

"Police said they got more than 100 tips on the case from people who saw the video."

"Two teens were caught on a surveillance camera attacking Jacques Pierre"

Anybody want to object to their privacy being invaded by surveillance cameras? Not me.

It tells me these kids thought those men were less than human. Easy marks as they were on the edge of society. I hope they pay to the fullest.

Good! Glad they've been caught. They were just getting started, serial killers in training. They should never be allowed to live in the general population, in fact they probably shouldn't be allowed to live.

Teenaged hooligans beating homeless people for thrills.

The 17 year should get the death penalty too but thanks to the liberal wisdom of our Supremes his life matters more than that of a defenseless homeless man. Liberals talk a lot about caring for those in want but in reality they've raised a generation of conscienceless savages. Not that they will apologize for these dysfunctional products of the public education system Florida's Barbara Pariente was at such pains to maintain as a monopoly.

These kids are small and White. Likely, they will be executed by other inmates relatively quickly.

Small and white, they'll be turned into unpaid boy-whores and passed around the population. That's what they have in store for them.

Nah, I don't see them getting the death penalty. Not even in Floriduh. For one, one of the youths is under 18. Furthermore, as violent as this act was, I doubt it was their intention to actually kill anybody. No premiditation.

At any rate, these young men will grow old in the Florida State Penitentiary and they deserve nothing less. Hope their parents are proud. What fine, upstanding kids they raised.

Once, I and three friends, who were staying up all night at a campout at my house, walked a whole mile and a half to an all-night-restaurant, then walked back again before my parents found out! Boy, those were some wild times, I can assure you! We were crazy in those days!

To which a lib would add, "Not that there's anything wrong with that!"

That is one aspect of the left's plan, to create a lawless society so that we will demand a strong central government to cure the problem. They first must take our guns so that we don't solve the problem without them.

Their pretense about caring is just one of their lies. What they promise and what they do are opposites.
