    Like the cop that arrested them and people at WIFR didnt do the same thing when they were 19..... but they got away with it because times were different. Absolutely ridiculous.... shames the kids and there families. Way to make something out of nothing....honestly.

    I don't see why you feel the need to post these students name on your website and show this list on the internet. There is no reason to slander these kids names when we have all made mistakes in our lives and don't all deserve to have them posted on the internet. Submitted by Brady

    Do you seriously not have anything else to talk about?? Slow news day?? Submitted by Dustin Drye

    I think it is a joke that this is even part of the news. If this did happen in Apple River than why does it pertain to anyone in Rockford? All this is doing is trying to embarass the people who were charged which is ridiculous. Submitted by Anonymous

    Why is it that no comments are posted for an open discussion on this topic?? Submitted by Brent

    Brent, the reason is that I have to make a decision on what should and should not be on the site. This time I was wrong. - WIFR Webmaster

    How is this headline news? A few kids have a drink, so what? Smoking dope on the street and robbing people is SO much better.
