  1. I can’t thank everyone involved enough for the
    capture of the O’neill brothers. They severly beat and
    robbed my little brother and left him for dead.
    Hopely, the justice system will try, convict and
    imprison these vicious animals for the rest of their
    lives. They could have done this to any innocent
    victim. My brother just happened to be their target.
    Thanks to all the law inforcement involved in their
    rapid capture!!!
