A judge in South Carolina this week, denied bond to three men who are accused of breaking into a home, resulting in the death of one of the homeowners.
When the men heard the news, they cried loudly. The men are all teens, between the ages of 17 and 18.
The family of 18-year-old suspect Jacob Mouzon commented: “Jacob is like any 18 year old, head strong. The mistake that he made against the victim’s family, I would like to apologize to them.”
“First, I would like to apologize to the family for my son. He’s not a horrible person like everybody thinks, and our family is in shock,” the mother added.
The young man’s sister called him her “best friend” who did something “completely wrong” but wasn’t a “bad person,” WCBD reported.
Two suspects were not apprehended or identified, and are currently wanted, WCIV reported.
“Nowadays kids r spolied..parents dont want to raise them..just buy them stuff…shut them up..they dont want to know whats going on in their lives..and laws concering discipline…a good old fashion ass whoopin is what they need…Im not saying beat them to death…I bet one with a switch of the tree would str8tn them up,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“Oh boo hoo 30 years big deal all five of these murdering thugs should get the death penalty, if not then life without parole. When are these idiots going to learn apparently never. In 30 years they would still have some type of life, but they murdered a man and took him away from his family,” another wrote.
These three teens were part of a larger group of 5 teens.
The five men all broke into a home, in an attempt to rob it. They all admitted this to police. Upon entering the home, there was a scuffle – and 28-year-old Kadeem Johnson ended up dead.
Johnson’s family was also at the courthouse.
