between the ages of 10 and 17. they tattooed a small cross on each child's hand. this is illegal in georgia. it was a homemade tattoo gun (gross!). what offended me most was the comment section under the on-line article. here is one comment that followed some racially biased comments that i couldn't locate. read the irony:
"Thousands of black children are tatooed under 18 years of age so please stop useing the term white trash. Unedjucated yes. Millions of people in the US peirce and have neeldes injected into our youth, why are we so outraged that a 10 year old wanted to be like the rest of them and get a small tat on his hand. Barney Fife needs to hit the street and start busting real criminals."
breaking the law is breaking the law. and everyone's hackles are up about catching the 'real criminals'. parents who permanently mark their children ARE criminals.
