This was reported on the Channel Two News last night and all I could think was that they were interviewing and showing the two minor victims while one of the suspects was still at large. I was outraged. Unless the police were using this as a tactic to lure the suspect back, these two girls are now at greater risk; he knows where they live and what they look like. I think it was dangerously irresponsible reporting.

I thought the press wasn't supposed to print the names of minors. What if this yayhoo gets out and comes looking for them?

God bless these girls. I doubt the burglars will be punished severely enough. More crime from drug addicts.

Another instance where the perpetrators deserve only justice, no mercy.

The burglars already know where the girls live -- they' just broken into the place. As far as them being at risk of "revenge", you've been watching too many TV movies. The two are in jail, and given the seriousness of breaking into an occupied dwelling, their bail is certain to be high enough that they'll stay there until trial.

My question is, What took the police so long to get there? Horrible things could have happened to those girls.

Grateful that the girls were safe. Suggest the family buy a doggie. They can be a deterrence to burglars who hit homes at random....unless of course it's my dog. Give her a milkbone and she'll lead you to all the hidden valuables in the home.

I don't watch t.v. and rarely watch movies; I was listening because I was working on a piece of art and my husband had it on. The news reported there were three suspects and one was at large, I was concerned because I thought showing the girls might make them more vulnerable to retaliation by the third suspect. I've been around long enough to know that witnesses are often in danger.

Smart girls. I admire them for keeping such a cool head in this situation. I don't know if I could have! Glad everyone is OK.
