Burned By Bullies

Valerie Brewer spoke with the "Today" show this morning about her son, Michael, who was burned by bullies. He is now fighting for his life.

Five teens have been charged with intentionally setting the boy on fire in an argument that started over a video game.

This story is just too horrific for words. Our hearts go out to this family in this time, and we are pulling for Michael's full recovery.

I can’t even imagine what that mother is going through, I would lose my mind. My heart just goes out to them right now.

I am curious though, why does the article say it started over a video game when on the news and even in this clip it says it started over him telling on the kids for stealing the bike??

The bullies need to go to juvenile detention, when they are of age do some real time, I do not care how young they are, they obviously are going down the wrong path. Don’t slap their hands, so that later they will do even worst.

I haven’t seen much coverage of this, but the little coverage I have seen I fail to see those kids parents.. why are they silent and being shielded by the media?

All new to me; I wasn’t conscious about the many ramifications and depth to the tale till I searched here via Google! Good job.
