    These are (and were) 19 and 20 year olds that made a life changing and life ending bad decision - to beat up a guy that wrote an insulting facebook post. Pretty pathetic. They learned the hard way, that you don't have to be the "killer" to be charged with murder, as a matter of fact, the stabber was the victim here and wasn't charged.
