Three boys dead after fiery crash
in stolen SUV, Pinellas sheriff says

Tampa Bay Times, by Laura C. Morel, Zachary T. Sampson*

Deyon Kaigler said in December that he was done stealing cars. His friends were still posting videos of high-speed joyrides to Facebook, wearing key fobs on lanyards around their necks. But Deyon, 16, had decided it was too dangerous. "I value my life," he said. "I´m not trying to be dead." Just eight months later, on Sunday morning, three boys died and Deyon was led away in handcuffs after a fiery, high-speed crash sent a stolen Ford Explorer pinwheeling through the air down Tampa Road in Palm Harbor, bursting into flames. Eight teenage car thieves from Pinellas have now died in the

They were black car thieves.

"The boys who died were identified as Jimmie Goshey, 14; Dejarae Thomas, 16; and Keontae Brown, 16. Keontae´s brother, 14-year-old Keondrae Brown"

They need to send those Amish parents to child-rearing classes. They´re way too lax with their kids.

Crashing is an expensive way to get these kids off the streets but that seems to be the only way that works. Single parent, boy orders his own pizza from his room. Mom must have a great job.

What I came away with after reading the article was, we need Federal money and the government is not doing enough to curtail this problem! Of course, not mentioned was the fact that had the law come down hard on these black kids, it would have been racist and the same parents crying for help now would have been marching with signs slamming the police for picking on their medical school bound, good boys!

Each of the teens involved in Sunday´s crash had "extremely extensive criminal histories". One of the lads had just been released by juvie authorities.

Dad said that it´s difficult to parent a child who has no respect for the courts; it´s difficult to parent a child who has no respect for the courts. Pop, how about starting with respect for parents that is built from birth? Where were you in his upbringing?

Grandma wishes they had been "harder" on her deceased grandson. And, Grandma, where was his family, your progeny, "raising him up"? What sort of morals did they instill?

And what about the vaunted "village"? Seems this boy´s village has a problem teaching him morals, self-control and law-abiding citizenship.

The young man and his cohorts in crime seem to have caught what they inevitably had coming. Glad no innocents were taken.

I have a black neighbor who believes the USA has done enough damage and deserves what we´ve been getting. He also insists white law enforcement delibertly fills jails and prisons with black and brown inmates -- as if they have nothing to do with it.

Kids of every race and ethnicity have always pushed the limits--of their parents, of the law, of society. This is a real tragedy (and not just for the SUV.) Death is forever, and no parent should ever have to bury their child.

There is a limit to what parents can do with young men who are bigger and stronger than they are. The courts actually do have the power to inflict punishments that would be true deterrents, and they have not done it.

As for the comments here, ugh. lucianne.com is not what it once was.

The law of the land was pretty easy on these young citizens, so they continued to repeat-offend.

The laws of physics are much tougher! (You know - inertia and such.) They tend to be pretty impartial about age of offenders, race, educational level, etc.

Hard to think of the deceased as "victims." The victims are the innocents who just happen to get into the path of destruction, and the people whose vehicles get stolen. (And your status is jeopardized if you leave your car on the street, with keys in the ignition.)

here was a tv series several years ago called ´Bait Car.´
A car rigged with cameras and a remote control cutoff gadget was placed by police in high crime areas, and there was a bit of acting so that the driver exited the car, sometimes fake arrested, and the car was running, with keys in the ignition.
The car would be stolen, usually by black teens, followed by police, then shut off by remote control. The car thieves would, within seconds, concoct lies to explain their presence. The cameras told the story.
What could one take away from the series? Youngsters who had no impulse control were roaming the streets.

President Trump’s address to the General Assembly of the United Nations earlier this week appears to have been calculated in part to “unsettle China” sufficiently to clamp down on Rocket Man. I think it’s gonna be a long, long time, but maybe President Trump was on to something. (Snip) Seeing President Trump in the White House on April 24 at his 100-day event for conservative media, I was most struck by his account of his then recent meeting with China’s President Xi.

I’ll probably never be able to make up my mind fully about President Trump, and I am sure a number of our commenters will pounce on this opening. But just about every time I think he’s blundered or shown himself not up to the job, something changes my mind as the dust settles. First, as Scott and Paul noted, his speech to the UN this week was terrific. Geez—you’d think from the reaction Trump called the Soviet Union an evil empire or something. Even more satisfying is how Trump continually confounds the efforts of the DC Swamp Monsters to make him conform to the “normal” rules and procedures of Washington.

The climatistas really are a fun and lovable bunch to watch. Also pathetic.

The Paris Accord, even if fully implemented, will barely slow any future warming accord to the standard climate orthodoxy (better known as “The Consensus”). That’s why the former NASA chief climatista James Hansen called the Paris Accord “a fraud.” What do you do when, having told us for more than 20 years that “we only have ten years left” to act, the deadline passes and we haven’t got anywhere close to a

They are on a treadmill sometimes called a "national conversation" from which they cannot get off. Often when the Left talks about having a national conversation they mean the thoughts that occur to them and no one else. Then having adjudicated their own internal reflections they author what they regard as binding opinion on themselves and all the rest.

People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen.

It was odd to think about Shakespeare during a hurricane, but the Bard knew his storms. From "King Lear" to "The Tempest," where there was a Will, there was a wave, and often a deluge. Shakespeare liked his storms because they placed his characters under pressure, scattered them to the corners of the Earth, made them strangers in strange lands, and tested what they were made of. He knew that all humans – even kings – looked tiny in the face of a storm. None more so than King Lear, the ancient monarch who made the mistake dividing his kingdom among his

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to
