    Heard this on the local radio, very sad. The area where this happened isn't a bad area - Lynchburg really has no "inner city" feel to its downtown area, it's mostly commercial with some restaurants and museums, however, there are some poor/crime stricken neighborhoods in close proximity (within walking distance, maybe a few blocks). I feel for the family, not only for their loss, but also the possibility of perceived guilt for allowing him to leave alone and go wandering around a city he knew nothing about.

    Some local perspective:

    The two 16 year olds could be tried as adults. I believe you must be 14 in Virginia to be tried as an adult. I know nothing of the judges in Lynchburg or Amherst County, but I hope they are tough on criminals down there.

    As we grow older and our physical abilities lessen, we'll increasingly fall into the category of "good prospect" for street predators. Never stop training and always be sharp.

    This is a sad story...a pointless crime.

    I hope the dirtbags find out what being tough is all about when they hit the 'black bar hotel'.

    the perps willingness to viciously take a life just lends an exclamation point to the thread that ran a few months ago about possible responses to being attacked/robbed/etc by a kid--and the shoot/no shoot debate......

    I recently moved from Va to Tn. I can't tell you how much happier I am. I went from a multi-town radius of thug wanna-bes and little hood rats...to an area where I no longer feel like the minority.

    LOVING IT! Look forward to continuing to raise my kids here.

    As for that poor old man ..our prayers go out to his loved ones.

    Will be tried as adults -- From The Roanoke Times

    A bit more detail:

    http://www.roanoke.com/news/roanoke/wb/259747

    Key paragraph, albeit not first

    The teens were arrested Tuesday and will be tried as adults. It was unclear Wednesday whether the teenagers had attorneys.

    I heartily extend my congratulations to these young former F.F.A. members for sucessfully graduating to the status of felon.

    F.F.A. stands for "Future Felons of America". Now they can go forth and provide for the sexual gratification of men tougher than them.

    Nobody ever said justice was pretty. It's just a shame that we have P.C. goups that want to ban prison rape, as I think it's a very good form of informal discipline. What's the use in incarcerating people if it's no more dangerous and inhospitable than the outside world? Prisons should be a place people fear to go because bad things happen there, not viewed as some sort of a "time out" with milk and cookies.
