The video of a limp Martin Lee Anderson being hit and kicked by the guards after he collapsed while exercising drew protests in the state capital and spelled the end of Florida's system of boot camps for juvenile offenders. Anderson died at a hospital the day after the altercation.
The defendants, however, said they followed the rules at a get-tough facility where young offenders often feigned illness to avoid exercise, and their attorneys said that Anderson died not from rough treatment, but from a previously undiagnosed blood disorder.

Her lawyer, Benjamin Crump, told reporters outside: "You kill a dog, you go to jail. You kill a little black boy and nothing happens."

Aside from hitting Anderson, the guards dragged him around the military-style camp's exercise yard and forced him to inhale ammonia capsules in what they said was an attempt to revive him. The nurse stood by watching.
So this teaches kids to fear new people, promotes the scam-laden Miss America contest, and also tries to create a fake "safe" internet? How could it be worse?
"We were chatting with people we didn't know, which was our first mistake, and someone asked for our personal information," she said. "A week later, he sent some inappropriate pictures to one of my friends. We were all scared, and told our parents, who contacted the authorities."
Now Nelson, who is the reigning Miss America, is the centerpiece of a new kid-friendly Internet browser designed to keep children away from dangerous online sites and contacts.
CASSELBERRY, Fla. -- A Casselberry police officer is suing the family of a small child who nearly drowned in the family's pool. When the officer arrived at the scene to help 1-year old Joey Cosmillo, she was injured when she slipped in a puddle of water.
Maggie and Richard Cosmillo don't go back there anymore, where Joey almost died. On January 9, at 1-year-old, he fell into the family's swimming pool and nearly drowned. He suffered severe brain damage. His grandparents say he cannot walk, talk, or eat. His doctor's aren't sure he can even see.
"That vision of my baby is just imbedded in my brain and this lawsuit just makes everything so, I don't even know the word, almost dirty," Richard said.
The lawsuit was filed by Casselberry Police Sergeant Andrea Eichhorn. On the day of the accident, she answered the emergency call. As paramedics tried to revive the boy, Officer Eichhorn entered the house and slipped on a puddle of water, breaking her knee. She blames the Cosmillos.
"With SimCity Societies, we have the opportunity not only to demonstrate some of the causes and effects of global warming, but also to educate players how seemingly small choices can have a big global impact," said Steve Seabolt, VP of Global Brand Development for The Sims Label at EA. "BP was one of the first major energy companies to publicly acknowledge the need to reduce carbon emissions and begin taking precautionary measures. As such, they are the perfect partner to help educate people on this important social issue in SimCity Societies."
