A sad story. Reminds me of something that happened with my own sons though, in Vancouver. My son goes to Charlotte Wood Middle School now, but in Vancouver where my husband lives with my eldest son, teenagers do what teenagers do and I know it's no excuse of robbery of any sort but extreme punishment does the opposite of teaching morals. If we want teenagers to stop stealing then they need to know why not stealing can benefit them in society. Creating positive relationships with people they don't want to steal from is the first step, but only if that person is not a criminal or an authority that put fears into them. That's my two cents anyways. Thanks for the news because I'm looking into this stuff for a paper.

Much respect,

Where are the teens from? This story is so vague.

@ Lisa Elder

An authority that does not put fear into to them? Excuse me, that’s exactly what those four idiots need. You’re an excuse maker for criminal behavior. You also said, “I know it's no excuse of robbery of any sort but extreme punishment does the opposite of teaching morals. What the hell are you talking about?

Do you have any idea what the recidivism rate for parolees is in California? 65 PERCENT! Your buddy Gavin Newsom recently commuted the sentences of 21 state prison inmates, including more than a dozen convicted of murder or related crimes. The victims were children in two of the cases and a pregnant woman in a third.

You and Gavin Newsom would make a fine pair. Oh, I almost forgot, did you hear about the inmate in Florida that was released on “compassionate” grounds due to the Coronavirus? He was released from prison and committed murder. He's also charged with resisting an officer, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of heroin, records show. So, what are you going to teach that guy? Morals?

You liberals are really something to behold.

Lisa, anyone who enters a pharmacy and pretends to have a gun while demanding narcotics from the safe needs a bit more than the hugs you want to give them. That's exactly what's wrong with our society.

I hope they have room to keep them locked up. Recently some other criminal was let go because of space issues tied into the Virus.
These are criminals, at any age.

Can’t tell if they gave the perps free rooms, meals, and face masks, or if they simply said “Bad Citizen-Don’t do that again” and sent them on their merry way to rob and pillage a little more..?

Lisa needs an intervention by a group of police investigators who handle juvenile crimes. She will aptly learn it is not what she perceives is needed to prevent juvenile crime.

If the teens were stealing candy bars or toilet paper, I'd be more inclined toward listening and lessons. These teens were trying to steal narcotics from a pharmacy. They are either drug addicts or drug dealers. They need more than a heart to heart discussion.

At Teen Parent

Those teens were not "stealing." They committed robbery (which is accomplished by force or fear); however, I understand what you were attempting to say.

Personally, I feel that anyone who commits a felony (violent crime) during a national emergency, should receive a standard sentence of no less than 20 years in state prison. Also, should a death occur in the commission of a violent crime during a national emergency, the convicted felon should receive a sentence of death.

Based on where they were pulled over, pretty sure they were headed back home to Concord, Pittsburgh/Bay Point, or Antioch. When are these morons going to learn that Danville is not the easiest place to commit crime and not get caught?
