Wow. Too dumb to live.

It's very possible that the informant was forced to go along,and It could be when the Cops sprung the trap they knew they had been setup and the BG's shot the informant

This is a great cost savings to the people of Florida. Consider the following:
4 criminals middle aged.
$50,000/year for incarceration med-high security facility.
Average 10-20 year sentences.
This maybe a great way for some states to balance their state budgets. Don't hate, I'm just saying.
My thought is that the informant chose to go out that way. Meaning he would have been made out to be the snitch if he lived and would have been in fear the rest of his life and his children and wife as well. But my theory goes out the window because his name is mentioned in the write up. Oh well nevermind. Maybe Duke is right. Either way we wont be paying for 4 BG's being incarcerated for x amount of years.
The police recruit an informant, who willingly goes along. The same informant then becomes an active participant in a home invasion that he KNOWS the police are going to bust? I'm not buying it. A lot of potential scenarios here, but the most likely is that he was pressured to go along by the other criminals. Knowing that the police are going to arrest everyone, he goes along, knowing that he can explain later. Instead, all four end up dead. I definitely won't shed a tear for the other three, but something about the informant isn't adding up. I can't blame the family for wanting some more answers.
