Murder at Boot Camp. What else can you call it when 8 guards kick beat and suffocate a 14 year to death. 14 years old! The fact they got off is no surprise. He is black and the jury were white.
Boot camps are not where you send kids, idiot criminal soldiers yes but not kids. You most definitely do not send them there for stealing a relations car and trespassing, both piddling crimes. America’s justice systems are totally fucked up and this is yet again another example of that. How the hell did the not get charged for abuse at the very least. EIGHT guards are not need to attack a child or even an aggressive adult, totally unforgivable!
Boot camps should not be used at all too many of them rely on excessive violence and threats of homosexual rape and overt homosexual behaviour in their actions against those sentenced in them. Think of this if you put a terrorist in one of those places and then treated them like your do those kids there would be outrage over abuse of human rights and torture. Make it a kid or adult of your people maybe even call them criminals and such abuse is good for them gives them character and makes them better people. Total bullshit!!
