What went wrong? A white male is out in his neighborhood walking his dog one moment and the next, he’s begging for his life. James Patrick Stuhlman begged, “Don’t shoot.” He wasn’t ready to die that day. Yet three young boys decided to be criminals and take a life and for what?
What possibly could have been their motive? Did they need money? Or were they just out for a television re-enactment thrill? The video tells exactly what the boys were thinking when they came upon Mr. Stuhlman.

It is so sad and even though justice soothes the pain, it will never bring Mr. Stuhlman back to life. Our prayers go out to all the families involved.
