Criminals like to act tough on the street as a way of gaining “street cred” and becoming respected and feared among their fellow lowlifes. However when these criminals are caught, the tough-guy routine sometimes disappears quickly.
WCIV reported that two teenagers, Jacob Mouzon, 17, and Drake Campbell, 18, were reduced to blubbering after a South Carolina judge said two words to them in court: “No bail.”
The two teens were charged with two counts of armed robbery, burglary, murder and attempted murder after they participated in a home invasion that ended with the homeowner being shot execution-style.
This coldblooded killers could take a life, but they couldn’t stand for five minutes in a courtroom without crying like pathetic wimps.
“Jacob’s my best friend. And I know what he did was wrong. I completely understand that, but he’s not a bad person,” said Mouzon’s sister who apparently doesn’t understand that killing a human being is literally the definition of being a bad person.
“These kids are not awful terrible kids,” said family members who were probably in denial that they had successfully raised a couple of coldblooded murderers.
In South Carolina, a summary court judge cannot legally give bond to people on murder charges. The issue of bail will instead be sent to a circuit court judge — who will hopefully keep these murderers locked up.
If you commit a murder, then you deserve everything that happens to you. Killing someone in self-defense is one thing, but shooting someone in the head during a robbery is another matter entirely.
Assuming that these two are truly guilty of the charges against them, they deserve harsh punishment — even if their family members refuse to accept reality.
