Abused beyond belief by two teenage girls, who filmed their despicable activities with their cellphones, a 16-year-old autistic boy now says he doesn't want to press charges against them - concerned that it would damage their - "friendship?"
The parents of the victim are insistent that they want their son's abuser, 17-year-old Lauren A. Bush to be tried as an adult.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Identified only by his middle name of "Michael," he says he wants to resume a friendship with his schoolmates. While 17-year-old Lauren A. Bush is set to be tried as an adult, Michael identifies her 15-year-old accomplice as his "girlfriend."
Referring to a horrible act captured on video, Michael says "I thought she was going to cut me. I was like, 'Please stop,'?" The case drew worldwide attention to their rural Maryland town and their high school, Chopticon High School.
Michael explains the knife incident as "a game gone wrong. It was a sick game, kind of creepy. But they didn't have a serious intention about killing me."
In just one horrific incident perpetrated against him by his so-called "friends" was the time on Valentine's Day when he was driven to a frozen pond near his home in St. Mary's County. The girls persuaded him to fetch a stray basketball on the icy water when he crashed through the ice. Clambering back up, he fell a second time while neither girl tried to help.
Michael nearly froze to death and on the way home, the girls didn't let him ride with them in the warm car. "They put me in the trunk," Michael recalled. "They didn't want to get the interior wet."
Michael would like the charges dropped against the girls. His parents want Bush tried as an adult just as fervently as their only child wants her forgiven.
"It really makes me upset that my parents want to see them in jail," he said. "Because I really like them." But he also acknowledged that he felt "coerced" by the girls at the pond.
"My son is a staunch defender of his tormentors; it's embarrassing," said Michael's father, a federal government contracting analyst. "He may be more disabled than I convinced myself that he was and maybe more lost than I realized. That's something I am going to have to deal with on a later day. Right now, I am trying to get justice for him and others like him."
Among other horrific moments recorded by the two girls for posterity is a video that allegedly reveals the girls trying to push Michael into having sex with his family's dog.
