Beaten to Death

So Tampa, Florida sends a 14 year old boy to boot camp for joyriding in his grandma's car. And guards beat him to death. After he collapsed on the exercise field. And it's caught on video tape. Then a coroner rules it a death by natural causes.

The ruling has been reversed but the final cause of death is as of yet undetermined. We only know that it was not due to natural causes. His family had to pay for that second autopsy. I think this is known as adding insult to injury.

He's young, he's black, he has an attitude. Let's kill him.

Just between you and me, I would rather take my chances with him than with the 19 year old middle class white boy in a fraternity house. But hey. I'm not normal.

Sigh. Here we have a 'boot camp' that exists purportedly to teach kids to step up and take responsibility... to be responsible.

And what do they do? We see.

How am I supposed to teach kids to take responsibility for their actions when they see this kind of shit happening in their world?

How?
