    These are little babies who didn't have somebody around to tell them no, don't do that. At least they put the fire out but I think all they needed was a warning and they might've peed their pants! The 14 yr old who broke in didn't take anything, so I don't think he should be charged either. He may be being neglected at home and looking for food or something. Maybe me as a good parent who came from a terrible background, I can look at a child and see there is more behind closed doors then we know. Even a judge should have had a larger heart to investigate these things a little further in to their home life, rather then assume these are bad kids.
