Came across this earlier today and after reading and listening to the call i'm just disgusted with them and the charges they have.
From article

The young men, Christopher, 22, and Cameron, 17, were charged with aggravated assault. They also face arson charges for allegedly attempting to blow up the house by tampering with a gas line.


What they did


Yvonne Ervin was groggy after she was allegedly drugged but she managed to make a call from inside the family's Atlanta-area home on Saturday morning.

Her husband, Zachary, was stabbed multiple times and hit over the head with a shotgun.

Yvonne, 50, told the 911 operator: “They're trying to strangle and shoot us. They put Xanax in our food. They thought we were asleep and they tried to attack us. They beat me up. They beat him up. They're trying to kill us."


Why not charge them with attempted murder? I can't even think what was going through the parents mind while this was happening.

I guess for the sake of discussion my question would be why not charge them for attempted murder?

I wonder how these parents so endeared themselves to their kids.Such behavior must have just sprung from nowhere.I worked with a women that kidnapped her grandmother,(with the help of some of her kids), and held her hostage in a trunk of a car while trying to extort the old womans savings from her.She was discovered and now is serving some hard time.

Doesn't surprise me, desperate times call for desperate measures and you see this type of behavior going both ways. Children neglecting their elderly parents because of high costs, parents selling their kids away to alleviate debt, parents abandoning unwanted children, and the list goes on.

The world is an ugly place and human nature can be really f@*ked up sometimes

Methinks that for some people, all they have is family. I guess it's kind of the same answer as why some people will purposely mislead the police when they are looking for one of their family members.

For those wondering why they haven't been charge with attempted murder is the law in Georgia is different. In Georgia, aggravated assault carries a maximum sentence of 20 years versus 10 for attempted murder. And the guilty person has to do 90% of that sentence. It will be a lot easier to prove the assault with injuries the parents sustain. Regardless I think they both will be charge with attempted murder eventually.

People go to jail for an ounce of marry-jane for life, while Jared Fogle fondles and plays with little children and gets a fairly short sentence.

The system is downright belly-side up.
