That said, so far I'm liking The First 48 Missing Persons WAY better than The First 48.
I am the complete opposite. After the first episode, I wasn't sure I would even watch it again. It was just not that interesting. Luckily last night's episode was a little better, so I'll stick with it. But I like the Original First 48 more.
I think this episode was a little hard/sad for me because it took place in my hometown. It made me sad for the kids who are growing up with such hard attitudes and the mentality that a human life has no value. Regardless of the fact that the suspects in this case didn't know that Erron was going to shoot anyone, they seemed to be fine with the idea of stealing and pointing a gun at someone. I'm always amazed at the stupidity of the people who claim they didn't intend to shoot/kill anybody when they committed the original crime with a loaded gun.
I was surprised to find myself weeping when the sister made her plea to the public for help. What a senseless tragedy.
I teared up at the press conference too. And his poor mother broke my heart. It was so sad.
On the other side of it, I teared up again when the kid who turned himself in said that this was his first time getting arrested and his first time going to jail and how it was going to be hard for him because it was his first time. Its like he really just had no idea of what being charged with murder is like. And also, dude, you're already of the mindset that you're going to jail again in the future. How about learning from this and if you're lucky enough to make it out of jail while you're still young, make that your last time. Such a shame that these are all KIDS wrapped up in this mess. Over nothing.
Because I was so taken aback at how cold and heartless Erron was, I googled him and found THIS.
This must be his father or some other relative, because it has a date on the bottom of September 2003 and Albert was murdered in 2010. Then again, this same information also applies to an Arron Keith Nolley. Makes you wonder. If this is last night's Erron's father, the story just gets even sadder.
So eerie! So I found THIS
when I searched for Arron Keith Nolley and the crime details are almost the same as last night's episode. "Aaron" was 18 when his crime was commited in 1993. "Erron" was born in November 1993. HERE
is more information on the arrests of the suspects. They were attempting to leave town! This must have been before they arrested that last kid.
