This just in....

The Boston Globe August 29, 2006
Boston MA (AP) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Boston courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his Parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Boston Red Sox, whom the boy firmly believes is not capable of beating anyone.

That does seem a bit strange that the judge would do that. But it's true about the Red Sox. They can't beat anyone!!!!!

I want to know if this could actually happen to a poor poor kid like that. I mean to be sent to a beaseball team that blew a six plus game lead in the division during the month of August........It should really say where the judge's mind was on this one.
