Arrests in Martin Lee Anderson Killing

After criticism of a slow investigation, yesterday, 7 guards and a nurse were arrested in Florida for aggravated manslaughter against a child in the beating death of 14 year old Martin Lee Anderson.

One autopsy determined he was suffocated by ammonia capsules shoved up his nose.

"It feels like a brick has been lifted off me today," said Robert Anderson, the dead boy's father.

Gina Jones, the teen's mother, wiping tears from her eyes, said: "I'm finally getting justice for my baby."

Panama City, Florida is a conservative place where law and order prevails. Let's see what a jury does.
