    Honestly the parents should be charged. Maybe if these kids got a few good lickens growing up. Do you know where your 17 year old is? Or who your 14 is sexting? Sounds like we have a epidemic too many “cool” parents letting their kids own guns and sell drugs and hang out. I think it should be illegal for minors to have cell phones or have social media until they are 18. Stuff has gotten way out of control.

    Were those head phones worth an armed robbery charge? Maybe they should have stole a book of matches or a stick of gum also to make the time worthwhile.

    To Amerigo…….If it was one of your kids you wouldn’t be saying lol! Its not something to laugh about that these kids were stopped by others next to a playground and with handguns. The streets are mean even in Chehalis. We all need to be aware of this if we allow our kids to walk home without supervision. This sounds to me like the police officers doing their jobs not playing duty teacher. I think your thought process is off!

    To Amerigo…..I wouldn’t being say LoL if it involved a handgun. Sounds to me like the cops aren’t playing duty teacher, sounds like their doing their jobs. The streets have become mean and we all should be aware of this if you allow your children to walk home alone!
