Homeless Man Attacked In Daytona

Another homeless person attacked in Florida. This time it was 3 young boys. Two of them are ten years-old.

Then they got off their bikes and started throwing larger rocks, he said.

D'Amico said he fell into a wall after the 17-year-old punched him in the face, breaking the brick wall. One of the 10-year-olds then slammed a piece of the broken wall onto his face, he said.

"They were big kids for their age," D'Amico told The Associated Press from his hospital bed, his left eye bloody, bruised and swollen shut. "The little kid was taunting me. The big kid came over and just slugged me. If they just would have let me walk on, I would have walked on."

That block is a piece of cement. The kids put D'Amico through a concrete wall and then slammed a chunk of cement into his face. D'Amico needed facial reconstructive surgery. Incidents like this is why Florida is ranked the most dangerous place for homeless people to live.

And to think of the lovely parents dragging these children up and encouraging/allowing this behavior.

I bet some of them are prominent businessmen and women in their communities.
Have the kiddies help them clean up downtown ... all in the family.
This is a sickening tale; thanks for being sure it got out there.
