OT - Skate-park attack: Family says victims outlook uncertain (Santa Fe, NM)
- Hi Everybody,
...for those who are interested, please donate to this young man's
This situation is near and dear to our hearts for several reasons:
(1) he didn't deserve to get beaten; (2) he lives with his
grandmother, as his father's not a part of his life, and his mother
lives and works in Albuquerque; (3) he was spending the night at one
of his friend's houses and they both went out to eat with some of
their friends and he was not out doing anything wrong; and, (4) two
of his friends, that he went out to eat with, are family to the
members of E to the Third Power (TM) and they are beyond devastated
for what's happened to him, as are we.
I got the call from them not long after the incident had occurred
and they were on their way to the hospital, to sit and wait to see
the outcome of their friend.
They were mortified, devastated, beyond sad, angry, and traumatized
by what had happened.
They all ran from the group of men, and didn't realize that their
friend had fallen behind. When they realized that their friend had
fallen behind, and wasn't with them, they went back and found that
he'd been severely beaten. They called and reported the incident to
the police, who-in turn showed up, with the ambulance.
We exchanged several phone calls while they were at the hospital
waiting to see the outcome of their friend, and in the background, I
could hear the family members of the 16-year old boy crying out in
fear and great sadness.
My heart simply went out to them.
Our two family members that were present there were also devastated,
crying, and both sad and beyond angry that this had happened and
that their friend had been severely beaten.
As soon as I get my verification e-mail from the Santa Fe New
Mexican, I'll post my comments and encourage you to do the same.
