True Tvor and meth contributes so much to that. I have never tried it at my ripe ole age of 52, but having 5 daughters have seen good kids get a wiff of it, and get hooked immediately. So many young kids. It must be some powerful stuff that has the best "feel good feeling" no one has ever experienced. Its not just teenagers either, its grown adults. Somehow try it in their 40s and then loose everything, house, spouse, children, job. All ages let this drug take over and from what I read its a hard one to overcome and its in and out of rehab continually trying to do so. Its the devil's makings that is without a doubt and has brought alot of people that might otherwise be contributing members of society down to nothing.

Friends and family of victims, either murdered or the suspect. Remember something please, that this is a news article with comments. There are things going to be said good and bad about all parties, and maybe about the suspect or victims family and friends. As "lost" says up above the whole group was involved in pot and then went on over to meth and that is when the problems started. WE ALL know that just by reading the article and looking at this mans picture. You can see on his face his meth use. As these things repeat themselves almost exactly by meth users, "us commenters" can pretty much just lay out what probably happened from that, and then add the article, the police information from online or their charges, and we probably have it 75% right. ITs all because we who read the paper see these things happen over and over again, just like wrecks on our freeways, its the same stories over and over again, and us who read the paper on a daily basis read it all. Unfortunately these were two sweet little boys at one time until Meth got ahold of them, and basically ended both of their lives, with death as a lifetime jail sentence is a death unto itself. No one here in comments means to be directly mean to anyone or pick on anyone, its expressing our thoughts on a topic, and it starts with a main theme as always, and in this one its METH. :/ Its our frustrations with these needless deaths that make us speak out.
