Police: Suspects trained to rob slain Fla. couple - USATODAY.com

Money was the motive of seven men accused of murdering a wealthy Florida couple who had adopted 13 special-needs children, police said Tuesday.

...

On Wednesday, investigators said the group of men trained for a month to rob the couple's home.
That's messed up - spending all that time and effort planning to rob and murder people who adopt special needs kids?

This is possibly the worst story of the year. Not only because of the killings, but also because of killing the parents of special needs children. There's bad and there's evil; this was just evil. Those parents were very courageous and brave to take on such a challenge only to be killed by those thugs.

Let our prays go out to those children. =(

Yeah. I mean they were using their money to help all of these kids and this is what they get for it? The people who did this deserve to get the worst penalty the law can give them if you ask me.

I was looking at this article earlier and it made me sick to my stomach, the couple had used there money to look after and raise children with special needs only to be snuffed out by these animals.

The part I cannot get my head around and correct me if I am wrong but all the guys involved were masked, making identifaction near imposible so why did they have to shoot the couple?.

They did this while 9 of the kids were actualy in the home, I just cant get my head around it, I hope that when these guys are caught that they get the death penelty each and every one of them.

I have seen this on the news for the past few days. It sucks when horrible things happen to good people. Some people will never consider how their actions will effect other people. Maybe the killers thought the family was really rich. Their house looks very nice but with that many kids they could have been struggling finacially or maybe they didn't have loads of money.

They already were caught. The house had surveillance cameras and the police were able to identify their getaway vehicle and then get at least 7 of the assailants. I don't know if there were any others.

There was a guy who was supposed to show up to disable the surveillance but he apparently backed out and was not involved in the crime.

They were a loosely connected group of mostly day laborers who knew each other through a power washing business and an auto detailing operation.
:-o

It's also strange that the surveillance wasn't disabled..

I really hope they do too. Being put to death almost seems to light of a sentence for these pieces of crap.
