Teenagers need to be locked up until they turn 20

Well, this is just a horrible story. Six female cheerleaders and two male "lookouts" have been arrested in Florida for beating another cheerleader after some trash-talking on MySpace escalated. What's worse is that the girls filmed this so they could share it with their friends. This is sad on so many levels, from the fact that the girls don't think they did anything wrong to the fact that they probably learned this from adults. You can find part of the video of the beating on YouTube, but I'm not going to post it here. It's kind of disturbing, actually. There are videos at the newspaper site, too. I wish I could say this is surprising, but it's really not. Man, people suck sometimes.

I'm surprised the site published the names and pictures of all of them, especially since they are minors. This actually happened to Randy's cousin (also in Florida) recently, he was the victim of a videotaped assault. The video was put up on a myspace page as well. I agree that people just suck sometimes.

I figured it was because they're trying them as adults, Kelli. I was surprised, too. They didn't reveal the name of the victim, if you notice. I wonder what the policy is. That sucks about Randy's cousin. What's up with Florida?

On a completely unrelated note, I'm looking forward to seeing you guys in June. I hope it will be a groovy time!
