A kid, a man, a rooster and a hen! What kind of name is Jackson Davis? Maybe you should spend 6 months in jail for that name....

I've played baseball with Kenny for many years and he is a great kid. Obviously drugs were involved but he should've gotten help. People around him and closest to him must have known he had a problem. You can't predict what a person will do but to rob a bank?! He deserves incarceration (not for long) and mandatory drug programs! Everyone who loves Kenny including myself cannot at this time be enablers! He obviously hit rock bottom which he probably needed, to start being a productive member of society. Serve some time and make use of the programs while incarcerate d! Hopefully he still had some baseball left in him when he gets back on his feet.
