Hope they are caught and spend a long time in jail. Reserve killing for guys like the Marion county thug few years ago enters convenience store shoots a clerk tells her get me all the money now if you want live. She complies while shot and begs him not to kill her. He puts slug in her chest. Never caught. Maybe you like the Jacksonville prosecutor's office going for executions for cop killers but only life in prison with parole if it's just a store clerk. When you murder someone in cold blood while stealing from them. Why does it matter what the person's job was as in to what kind charges you get? Why is it ex cops that beat a boy to death in boot camp with video get off ? Because the prosecutor intentionally fouls the case up because it was ex cops. These guys need to be behind bars. They look white and should have a long stay behind bars. Well thought out crime not using hoodies but actual masks and gloves and such. Not relying on their race to protect them from prosecution or being discovered.
