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 unnamed 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.
What the hell makes someone do something like this to someone. Especially someone like this.
Sure Might Make Right, but so does Love - otherwise no species would be able to reproduce!

I would say garden variety bullies are quickly becoming the norm and not the exception. I see this as anything but typical behaviour. This borders on psychotic,antisocial . Never when I was a teen would we bully to this extreme. There is a psychosis spreading amongst society,and quite frankly it scares me more than any doomsday scenario.
However, incidents like this make me believe that, contrary to the 60s and 70s, you just can't trust anyone under 30 these days.
These girls are deeply disturbed,obviously.I'd bet these two will need years of psychological help to become close to"normal"
I have to ask,Didn't the autistic boy's parents notice signs of abuse?How could they not?

Parenting - Parents seem to be getting lazier, and relying more on others help to raise children, robbing kids of needed parental interaction.
Society - Its just "cool" to be an ### hole.
Parents to busy with themselves to give a crap about their kids. Parents to scared to even spank their child . No supervision at all
Most people do not want to stay home they would rather work to afford a house , raising kids is 2nd or 3rd most important thing Money , my life , then kids .
We are on generation 2 since womens rights movement demanded to enter work force and screwed it up for everyone , no one raising kids , lower wages , less work , all around killed the family unit and forced the situation of two people having to work just to barely make ends meet . seems to be getting worse and worse .
ETA God I am probably gonna get flamed for my comment but that is just how I see it no disrespect to anyone
