Hawthorne, Florida–A Boy Scout is loyal–true to his family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and nation. A Boy Scout is friendly–a friend to all, a brother to other Scouts, understanding of others, and respectful to those with ideas and customs different than his own. A Boy Scout is kind–he understands there is strength in being gentle, treats others as he wants to be treated, and does not hurt or kill harmless things without reason. Joseph Reid is a whole ‘nother kind of Boy Scout. And, because he had a hand in making a 12-year-old fellow Scout drink human piss, he will never again be allowed to call himself a Scout.
Yes, 21-year-old Scout leader Joseph Reid, and three others, have all been stripped of their Scout status because they’re assholes. Last week, at Camp Shands, Reid and three other scouts ambushed a fellow Scout. Reid approached the victim and asked him to accompany him back to his campsite. On the way, three other Scout’s jumped out, tackled the victim, and duct-taped his mouth and arms. The victim was then led off into the woods. He was told that he was going to be “taught a lesson” for making some derogatory remarks about another scout earlier in the week. The four boys gave the victim a choice, he could either get beaten up, or he could drink urine. Before the victim could answer, Reid ripped the duct tape off his mouth (ow) and poured urine down his throat. Eventually, the victim made his escape and informed other Scout leaders of the incident. When deputies arrived, they found evidence backing up the victim’s claims. Duct tape, two bottles of urine, and a Blackberry cell phone with a recording of the nasty attack. Good luck talking yourself outta this one, kiddos.
Along with Reid, three other Scouts were taken into custody and charged. 16-year-old Harrison Reid, 15-year-old Kyler Brower and 16-year-old Nicholas Larsen were also arrested. All four are looking at charges of kidnapping and aggravated child abuse. Joseph Reid is being held in the Putnam County jail. The others have been turned over to the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.
The victim’s mother had this to say about her son, “Mentally he’s not ok. It’s not normal to be twelve and go through that.” She also stated that the child has undergone numerous medical tests to make sure his physical health hasn’t been effected…the test results are due back next week.
