Three teenagers have been arrested in connection to the death of an 89-year-old Allendale man.

On June 19, deputies discovered the body of Willie Johnson inside a home in the 300 block of Pickrum Street.

On Tuesday, two 16-year-olds and one 15-year-old were arrested and charged with murder, according to a statement from Thom Berry of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.

The teenagers – whose names have not been released – are currently in custody of the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice, according to Berry.

SLED investigated the case at the request of the Allendale Police Department.

Execution

Upon conviction, put the rabid animals down. They have committed the ultimate crime, they need to pay the ultimate price.

just children

They are just children? Please save the crocodile tears for something else. These teenagers should never see the light of day again. The electric chair for them
may be a deterrent for some other teenager.

I think prov227 was being

I think prov227 was being facetious.

I can't help but make a political comment on such a sad situation. THIS is the kind of thing that is the result of The Great Society; which enables and encourages government dependency, and random reproduction resulting in children with no morals or direction.

What do you wanna bet that none of these three had a father in the house and mama/ grandmama is on welfare?

You want to save the children

You want to save the children in this country? Start executing the ones that commit adult crimes. Word will get around quickly.

If guilty

Public execution would go a long ways towards making this a safer country - in more ways than one!

It's become blatantly obvious that the youth of today value no ones life. They're raised to respect no one and would snuff out the life of someone else without giving it a second thought. These kids are not the youth that existed when juvenile laws were created. These punks are cold blooded hardened criminals and should be dealt with as such. I can here it now. My boy was a good boy who was turning his life around. He's going to church on Sunday and has a wonderful smile.

Itsa, no, sadly, this has

Itsa, no, sadly, this has been around for a long, long time.

And this goes far beyond poor parenting. It is depravity to tie up an elderly man and put a bag over his head. This is savagery. These are "children" who will never, ever be right. Ever.

And this isn't their first crime, either.

To watch an elderly man smother, who couldn't possibly survive- that is somebody lower than an animal.

There is no hope of redemption for the three of them.

Itsa, I don't know if you've

Itsa, I don't know if you've ever read In Cold Blood by Truman Capote or have seen the movie.

Those crimes happened in 1959.

Evil exists in this world, and it's been like that since the beginning of time, and it has nothing to do with the Great Society or poor parenting.

All adults are just children with some years on them.

Pinch their little heads off before they do any more violence.

You're correct, but wrong at the same time.

Crimes like this have happened repeatedly in the past, but, your example illustrates organized crime. This crime illustrates the failure of the great society.

I highly doubt these juveniles were making a play for control of the Allendale crime syndicate. I believe (but don't know for sure) they were just purely board teens looking to score some bucks. Which just reinforces the failure of the great society.
