Martin Lee Anniversary

October 10th, 2008 by flanews

Sunday is the one year anniversary of the not guilty verdict in the boot camp death of 14 year-old Martin Lee Anderson. The teen was kicked and kneed by guards as a nurse watched during the first hour of his stay in the Panama City boot camp. The state later settled for 5 million dollars with his parents. Mother Gina Jones said her life hasn’t been the same since the death, and nothing has changed her or her attorney’s mind that that guards got away with murder.

The NAACP asked for a federal investigation into whether the guards violated Marin’s civil rights. There has been no inquiry or investigation. The family is hoping a new administration may reopen the case.
