Joseph Wendell Reid mug shot What badge do you get for being a thug?

Three Boy Scouts and a 21-year-old volunteer scout leader at Florida's Camp Shands are accused of forcing a 12-year-old to drink urine, supposedly because he made a racist remark.

Joseph Wendell Reid and the others -- two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old were supposedly "teaching" the younger scout "a lesson," according to authorities quoted in Ocala.com.

The four allegedly lured the other boy away to an isolated area, says a camp director says who found plastic bottles filed with urine.

In addition to the charges filed against them, the boys' scouting membership has been revoked. In addition, Reid earns a spot in the Weird Crime Mug Shot Hall of Shame.

This is really a sad and attrocious bullying incident. It’s especially disturbing to learn that the camp leader who is suppposed to be a mentor and role model type figure was involved with this.

Will i do not support bulling or support how they handled this. It is about time that people start standing up against people like that. If you cannot respect other human beings then shut up!
