I wonder how any of you would feel reading this about your own two kids..you should ALL feel ashamed of yourselves. Seriously.

These two kids are like 75% of the kids living in Reading. There is a big drug problem in Reading, so instead of judging these two kids go take a look at your own children and what they might be doing "under your roof". Its really sad that all of you have nothing better to do with your time then sit on the computer and bash other people who are going through a rough time. What happened had nothing to do with the way that their parents raised them. Unless you dont personally know these boys then you have no right to speak wrongly about them, they have a lot of potential which this mistake could have potentially ruin their lives. Its sad that people can just comment on someone elses life. So again go take a look at what your own children might be doing because most of kids in reading were friends with the staffier boys.

Better get these kids help now before they end up like some of the other 'innocent' drug dealers in town.
