Three men, including a 16-year-old, are facing charges after allegedly breaking into a home in West Memphis, Arkansas. The men, identified as 20-year-old Makayle Franklin, a convicted felon, 19-year-old Roy Prewitt (also a convicted felon) and a 16-year-old unnamed male, allegedly broke into the Booker family’s home last week and shot their dog, “Spot.”

According to WREG News, the suspects are accused of shooting the family’s four-year-old pit bull in the leg on Thursday – it is believed that the dog was shot through a window because he was barking at the want-to-be intruders.

The thieves didn’t make off with much from the home – they were found with a stolen Xbox, games and a jar of change. Spot had to undergo surgery for his leg injury, but he is expected to make a full recovery.

    These three should have to pay for any and ALL vet bills the dog has after this – including, if needed, physical therapy and any issues that come up in the future from this shooting. At least one already has a record. Now they all will. That they would break into a home and shoot the family dog, all for a video game system, a few games, and a “jar of change”? Unbelievable. Hoping the dog is going to be okay.

    I agree with everything Penny said and the proof is in the picture of these wanabe thugs. Our country and those who could put the fear in these kids and help to straighten them out, are too busy kneeling on a football field. Should be mentors to these kids and that would go a long way in stopping crimes like this by young people.

      I think the death penalty would be fine! They’ll get out of Julie most likely and commit more violent crimes! Some of us have tried mentoring and they could not relate. Not all the NFL players would be good mentors. Certainly would want dog killing felon Vick mentoring not the kneelers

    Parents of these scum need to be charged as well. They should be sued for numerous reasons , including pay for the dogs surgery and care. How can you people live like that with so much scum?

    These two punks are way beyond any sort of redemption – they are already felons and the only recourse to put them where they so desperately want to be – right into prison – they have proven they are unfit to be in society – let them ‘play’ with the big boys. And they SHOULD need to pay for Spot’s medical bills out of the 20 cents an hour they will get in their new home.
