Story on that kid that died at that boot camp.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,185172,00.html

PANAMA CITY, Fla. ? A teenager who was beaten by guards in a state-run boot camp for juvenile delinquents died from internal bleeding caused by a blood disorder, not from injuries he may have suffered in the beating, a medical examiner reported Thursday.

Martin Lee Anderson suffered from sickle cell trait, which caused his red blood cells to change shape and produce "a whole cascade of events that led to bleeding and hemorrhaging," said Bay County Medical Examiner Dr. Charles Siebert.

"It was a natural death," he said.

Medical forms filed at the boot camp did not indicate that the youth or his family were aware of the disorder, which affects about one of every eight black people, Siebert said. The sickle cell disorder would not show up in routine blood tests, he said.

Anderson entered the camp Jan. 5 because of an arrest for theft, and complained of breathing difficulties and collapsed during exercises that were part of the entry process. He died the next day at a Pensacola hospital.

The Bay County sheriff's office, which runs the camp, said Anderson became uncooperative and was restrained. The boy's mother contends he was murdered by guards who beat him to death.

Siebert said there were some bruises and abrasions on the boy's body, but he attributed those to attempts to resuscitate the youth.

Also Thursday, the Justice Department announced it would investigate the case, along with the FBI. Federal officials planned to focus on whether camp guards violated Anderson's rights through use of excessive force or "indifference to serious medical need," U.S. Attorney Gregory R. Miller said.

On Friday, law enforcement officials planned to make public a videotape that allegedly shows guards beating Anderson. News organizations have filed a lawsuit seeking the video.



Of course im sure the beating did not help the situation. Its amazing how people can get out of the consiquences of their actions. If you beat a person to death its not your fault, the beating only worsened what sickness the boy already had... God I hate humanity.

::puke::  :sad:

Is there a sane person alive that believes for a minute that he would have died THAT day of SC had he not been subjected to the abuse?
Difficulty breathing. Another case of 'we thought he was faking'?
 
So, would SC cause his organs to be so badly damaged that they couldn't be donated? So what's the defense? They beating wasn't excessive, he was just in a fragile condition that NO ONE knew about or suspected?

So I guess that means it is legal to beat a kid to death as long as you didn't know he was sick or had a medical condition.

Of course, you can do anything you want to children, children have no rights. You can beat one, just not to death, if the child does die then say you did not know about a medical condition. You can keep them from talking, you can keep them from being seen, you can keep them from being human if you even try hard enough, all of this is of course legal, because you know why! Children don't vote!!!!

Most of that was sarcasm for those that dont know me.

Even if the death is not specifically from the beating (which I'm not saying I believe but for argument's sake) how are they going to excuse beating a kid after he's lost consciousness?  How are they going to excuse the pressure applied to his throat, the kicking, Martin appearing to be like a rag doll etc.  Hopefully people will be able to see the kind of mentality that goes into one of those places.

Not that I'm getting my hopes entirely up but has there ever been a federal investigation into any of these places?

Justice Department Opens Investigation Into Teen Boy's Death at Boot Camp

PANAMA CITY, Fla. Feb 16, 2006 (AP)? The Justice Department is investigating the case of a 14-year-old boy who died a day after entering a boot camp for juvenile offenders, authorities announced Thursday.

The investigation, which will include the FBI and the Justice Department's civil rights division, will focus on whether camp guards violated Martin Lee Anderson's rights through use of excessive force or "indifference to serious medical need," said U.S. Attorney Gregory R. Miller.

Anderson entered the boot camp Jan. 5 because of an arrest for theft, and complained of breathing difficulties and collapsed during exercises that were part of the entry process.

The Bay County sheriff's office, which runs the camp, said Anderson became uncooperative and was restrained. The boy's mother, Gina Jones, contends that her son was murdered by guards who beat him to death.

Law enforcement authorities have resisted legal efforts by news organizations and others to obtain a videotape that two state lawmakers said showed the beating.

Civil rights groups, including the NAACP, had called for state and federal investigations into the death.

Bay County officials were scheduled to release autopsy results later Thursday.

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- A family attorney is expressing skepticism about a report on the death of a teenager allegedly beaten by guards in a Florida boot camp for juvenile delinquents.
The medical examiner's report says 14-year-old Martin Anderson died from internal bleeding caused by a blood disorder and not from any injuries he may have suffered while being restrained.

But Benjamin Crump, the attorney for Anderson's family, says "one thing we do know is that damage to his internal organs wasn't caused from this alleged sickle cell trait."

State Representative Gus Barreiro says the M-E's report "still does not justify the type of treatment this kid received."

A videotape that allegedly shows guards beating Anderson will be made public Friday.
