Florida teen gets set on fire by other teens? What is going ON in this world?

He's expected to be in the hospital for five months. Why do kids resort to such awful violence? Honestly, I do not get it. I hope the judge throws the book at them.

  • Parents, and lack of moral character in society and many other reasons.

  • wow thats really crazy
    Those teens will probably be served as adults...hopefully! Then maybe they can all get slammed with attempted murder, and Im sure a bunch of other charges and they can go suffer in REAL PRISON with the big guys

  • I don't know- I don't even want to read it. Teen on teen violence makes me sick. Makes me want to put my kids in a bubble and not let them out till they are 30.

    I am constantly talking to my 13 yr old- does anyone pick on you, are you bullied, who are your friends at school. At home I have to know where she is constantly- we live in a small neighborhood where literally everyone knows everyone and this makes me feel better (we are in military housing and there are only maybe 40 families- teeny housing area). Still- I get paranoid.
