Teen Burned for Stopping Crime

Doctor: Burned Fla. teen ‘not out of woods yet’

This article is quite disturbing to read. A 15-year-old boy in Florida was “doused with rubbing alcohol and set on fire”. The boy, Michael called the cops on another teen who was trying to steal his father’s bicycle. The other teen was arrested but upon his release found Michael, and with four other boys helping, splashed rubbing alcohol on him and set him on fire. Michael has burns on the majority of his body and is under great risk for organ failure. He will be in the hospital for months.

It’s so sad that someone trying to report a crime could have this happen to them. It’s even more outrageous that this happened with teenagers! Why were any of these boys not at school and why after just being released from jail was this other boys mother not more involved with her sons activities. This is just going to scare kids into not reporting crimes they see for fear of retaliation.

    I believe that the parents of the kid that was release from jail should join their own son in jail. Parents know their own kids better than anybody else. The parents knew that their own kid would take revenge from the other kid, even when they knew how their own son would react they did nothing to stop him. If parents don’t have time to raise their own kids, they shouldn’t have any.
