Finally had some time to go on line.
I have been really busy lately and don't seem to have much time to do what I want!
I seen this on Facebook,
Read the article, couldn't believe it!
Decide to see what else I could find about it.
This has to be one of the most sadistic bullying stories I have ever heard of!
Two teenage girls are behind bars following allegations that they carried out a campaign of harassment against a mentally-challenged boy including stabbing him, dragging him by the hair and forcing him to engage in sex acts with an animal. The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office said 17-year-old Lauren Bush and an unnaned 15-year-old girl - both students at Chopticon High School in Morganza, Maryland - recorded the assaults against the autistic 16-year-old victim on their cell phones. Footage shows the suspects force the teen to walk on a partially frozen pond, which resulted in him falling through the ice several times. Each time, police said, the suspects refused to help the boy out of the frigid water. Sheriff Tim Cameron said that the allegations leveled against the girls are among the most disturbing he has dealt with in his career. He says that several times between December and February, the suspects preyed on the victim – assaulting him with a knife, kicking him in the groin, dragging him by the hair, coercing him to engage in a sex act with an animal, and forcing him to walk on the partially frozen pond. ‘Another video depicts the male on an icy pond being told to continue to walk out further, actually falling in the water several times and pulling himself out,’ said Cameron. Bush, who lives in a rural part of the county south of Mechanicsville, knew the victim well, according to investigators. Police say the girls have admitted to videotaping the incidents, but officials are still trying to figure out why. 'Who could harbor this ill will to do something so completely heinous?' said Cameron. 'I don't know. It's hard to fathom, really.' Both girls have been charged with two counts of 1st degree assault, two counts of 2nd degree assault, soliciting subject in the production of child pornography and false imprisonment. Bush was charged as an adult. She is being held at the St. Mary's County Detention Center. The other teen is being detained at the Waxter's Children's Center.

I hope that there is a long investigation.
I hope that the punishment is not a slap on the wrist.
I hope both girls are punished equally.
I hope that there is no one else involved.
I hope that there are not anymore victims.
But most of all I hope the 16 year old autistic boy
never understands what they did to him, the cruelty.
I do hope though that someone explains to him that he should never
do anything like that again for anyone or to anyone.

I can not stress enough to keep an eye on the young people in your life.
Make sure they understand wrong is wrong.
Don't let them watch things on TV or the internet that they do not understand and/or just should not see.
This includes movies, YouTube and video games.
Watch how they play, make sure it is fair and isn't hurting anyone.
And if they have a cell phone, my advice is to keep a track on
what the are taking pictures or videos of.
This might sound like it is an invasion of privacy,
but they are underage and under your care,
you have the right to know what they are doing.
(There are apps that download automatically any
photo or video taken on a phone to a secure location online.)
What these girls did was sadistic and the thought of what they would do next scares me.
I find it hard to believe that there was no sign of such cruel behavior before.
Even little things, like laughing at someone getting hurt,
or telling stories of people being physically or mentally abused.
So be watchful, bad things do happen, and I bet that their parents once said
"Oh my child would never do that, I trust them completely.
We raised them right, they know the difference between right and wrong."
I have seen kids get caught doing something, the child deny it, even with video proof.
The child says "He made me do it, or he did it too, but they didn't catch him.
I only did it this one time."
Their parents believe him,
yet everyone around them is trying to tell them that the kid is lying.
They say love is blind, and they are certainly right,
when it comes to parents who deny what is right in front of them.
No one is perfect and hopefully
the young people around you are healthy, nice people,
just keep an eye on them.
I just want there to be no more stories like this.
I know I can't stop them,
but maybe if we all do our small part
we can stop the stories
before they start!
