I saw that on G.M.A the other day. From what I saw, that kid has a sick mind. I'm sorry, but beating anyone until they're pretty much on life-support is not necessary. I hope she is able to recover from this.
Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Quoting Elite: the kid is now charged with premeditated murder.
He hasn't been charged with premeditated murder, as she hasn't died. She is making slow progress.
For those that remember the boy, Michael Brewer, who was set on fire by a group of another boys over a bicycle dispute a few months ago...Yes, him and Josie attended the same middle school. This area is just that disgusting that such petty dealings can turn into life-or-death situations.

Girl, 15, out of coma after Deerfield school beating but has severe brain injuries, doctor says
Awake since at least the weekend, beating victim Josie Lou Ratley was sitting in a wheelchair Wednesday morning, showing signs that she not only recognizes her mother, but also wants to cuddle with her, the teen's doctor and lawyer say.
Dr. David Lasko and attorney Rick Freedman told reporters at Broward General Medical Center that they were encouraged by Ratley's progress, but their enthusiasm is tempered by her latest brain scan, which shows severe injuries in an area that affects her ability to communicate and walk.
"Unfortunately, the results of that testing has confirmed their worst fears," Freedman said.
Lasko said Ratley, 15, has limited functioning in her right arm, hand and fingers, but has shown some physical responses whenever she recognizes her nurses and her mother.
The doctor said their voices seem to have a calming effect on the teenager.
"She has made a steady and slow and remarkable improvement," said Lasko. "She's a remarkable young woman."

Quoting KBUF (Reply 5): That boy should get his ass expelled.
Sure. As soon as they release him from a juvenile prison. This is at least an aggravated assault, the kind of felony that will irrevocably destroy the life an adult offender (as it should). But since he's a minor, you know, six months unsupervised probation...
Good. When he gets out in 5 - 10, he'll have the whole rest of his life to realize just what that kind of felony does to one's ability to survive. Every turned down job, failed backround check, denied rental application, and otherwise rejection will remind him of what he did and what he has to live with.
Quoting sudden (Reply 8): This is very satisfying indeed. If they only would put him in a general prison so he could become someones bit$h.
I don't know what good knowing this guy will "get his" that way does for anyone, especially the young girl. But, by the same token, I doubt many tears will be shed if that sort of thing did become his life in prison. Is beating young women into a coma the kind of thing that earns much "street cred" in prison?

Wow it seems like that school needs to be closed and the area swarmed by cops ready to lock people up for ANYTHING.
Quoting KBUF (Reply 5): It happened at a bus stop at the school? That boy should get his ass expelled.
Umm I hope he ends up in jail for a long long time.
Quoting cadet57 (Reply 10): Someone should beat his ass into a coma. Better yet, just dump him in GP and quietly tell his new buddies what he's in for. Worthless scumbag.
oh oh I know what that "GP" stands for! Been there done that!

The story behind the story demonstrates 15 years old are not the same as adults. The boy did this, and I'm not excusing what he did, because the girl texted his girlfriend something bad about his recently deceased brother.
