This is one of those stories that just angers me. How can people be so cruel?

The victim, Aaron Hill, is an autistic teen from Okeechobee, FL. According to Facebook accounts,

He was lured out of his home by a girl claiming to want to go on a date. Once to the location she chose, he was ambushed by a thug by the name of Andrew Wheeler and a gang of at least eight other people.

WPTV in Florida is reporting that charges were filed against Andrew Wheeler, who allegedly punched and kneed the victim. The incident was captured on video and uploaded online. A local detective recognized Wheeler as the assailant in the video. Wheeler was charged with aggravated child abuse, and his bond was set for $200,000.


A Facebook page called #justiceforAaron has been created. It is my hope that the courts sort this out and that justice is handed out.
