Free the Moultrie Middle School Aspergers Student
Please join me in petitioning the Charleston Family Court Asst. Solicitor in sending this 13 year old Autistic child home for house arrest. House arrest allows the state due justice for bringing a knife to school, but also allows the student the ability to get his meds, be feed a diet he will eat, and be able to fully understand the consequences of his actions, while not becoming the victim of further bullying which lead to his bad decision in the first place. In the Juvenile Detention Center, this child was beaten up, not feed and not given his meds, which is cruel and unusual punishment. This child took a knife to school to threaten a bully, got scared and angry and acted out against people who he thought were trying to hurt him. Because of his Aspersers he does not fit into a Middle School classroom. He has suffered constant bullying in this school because of his illness and truly wants to be just a normal kid. He is a very good student academically and is an adopted child of a strong family with Christian values; He is a member of his Baptist Church, involved in the youth ministry and a Christian himself. He wants to do right and just be accepted, but he is having more problems in Middle School than the average student because of his condition. The only hope this kid has to make it in this world are his parents who love him dearly and can and will bare any burden and over come every hardship to assure their son lives a long and fulfilled life. The judicial system will not save this kid, it will kill him. Only minutes after being detain in their Juvenile Center, a former class bully was placed in the same cell and beat this child. He was not allowed contact with his parents for three days. He was not given his medicine at all for two days and was given only partial doses for the first 6 days of his confinement. He was not served any food on his diet, though his doctor sent specific instructions, for 6 days, and when he could not eat the food he was given, he was placed on a suicide watch. He has not broken one rule in confinement, has been a perfect prisoner, yet the Assistant Solicitor for Charleston County claims he is a threat to society. His former teacher has placed a restraining order against him though he is in jail; his parents have agreed to house arrest ankle bracelets and do not live within 5 miles of the teacher.
