Justice for Special Needs Boy Set on Fire

fire-by-rob-and-stephanie-levy

Target: David Knight, Kerville Chief of Police

Goal: Investigate and punish bullies who reportedly set a special needs boy on fire.

A special needs boy in Texas was nearly burned to death by a group of bullies he considered his friends, according to reports. These boys lured 10-year-old Kayden Culp to a field where they doused him with gasoline and lit him on fire. The boy was put on life support, has burns covering a good portion of his body, and his organs are currently failing. The alleged perpetrators were taken into custody, one of them having been charged with arson, according to a statement from the Fire Marshal.

Culp considered these boys his friends despite their repeated mocking of him. Regardless of whether or not he could understand they were bad news, he did trust them and they violated that trust with their attempted murder. Furthermore, Culp’s family believes the assault was indeed intentional–his aunt Kelly told News4 San Antonio that she heard the boys plotting to catch Culp riding his bike and take him somewhere to burn him.

The behavior of these children needs to be properly investigated, and if indeed found guilty, they must face justice. This boy was far from deserving of such cruelty, especially from those he trusted. Sign this petition to demand these boys face severe punishment for their alleged crime.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Knight,

A 10-year-old special needs child was reportedly nearly burned to death by three bullies. Kayden Culp suffered severe burns over a good portion of his body, his organs are failing, and he was put on life support following the assault. It is a miracle he even survived such a thing at all.

The boys have been taken into custody. Now it is up to you to conduct a thorough investigation of the incident. While the boy’s family and the authorities have reported their guilt, it is understandable that they cannot be punished to the full extent of the law until properly found guilty. Please ensure that this happens as soon as possible so that Culp and his family’s suffering and heartache will not be in vain.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    First, I am appalled that humans could do this to another living being! Then, an aunt overhears this conversation where one student says that they intend to burn another person and she allows this to go on?? She ought to be arrested for not telling what she knew!!! What is wrong with her??? To think that one of the culprits have been caught and he has been charged with arson?? He is not a thing!!! He is a person!! How about a charge of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder as these geniuses conspired to kill him! If he dies, of course the charges should be upgraded to premeditated murder. This plan was well-thought out in advance in effort to do harm, the aunt overheard the plan. This police department needs to step up and act on behalf of this poor young man who is fighting for his life! I’m angry over this one!!!

    May God bless you Kayden, and help you through the agony of your assault. Blessing to your hurting family as well.
    The Aunty should likewise be found guilty as too the children at the school who knew what was going on.
    This cruelty to other children must STOP.
    These boys must be held accountable, for bragging about this and attempted murder charges nothing less!
    This was deliberate. This was no accident.
    To be given arson charges is a sick joke! Kayden is not a tree, bush or house? He is a child, with a family, who unfortunately trusted these boys to be his friends. How dare they abuse this child so heinously.

  3. THESE BOYS ARE EVIL AND THEY HAVE TO BE CHARGED WITH ATTEMTED MURDER, THEY TRIED TO AND INTENDED TO MURDER THIS BOY, IF THEY ARE NOT PUNISHED THEY WILL GO ON TO BECOME CRIMINALS AND DO THIS TO OTHERS, THEY HAVE NO FEELINGS OR CONCIENCE OF WHAT IT IS TO DO HARM TO OTHERS, PLEASE PUNISH THESE EVIL BOYS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO DO THIS TO ANYONE ELSE.

  6. These “children” are presumably around the same age as their poor victim. That pre adolescent children would come up with a plan so vicious, so cruel, so dehumanizing screams that they are truly sociopaths and they will not stop now that they have tasted this violence. If they are allowed to remain on the streets they will offend again. They need to be in a hospital for the criminally mental ill. MAYBE, with YEARS of the right kind of therapy and medication it is possible they might be salvageable. But right now these monsters are serial killers waiting for the chance to attack another victim.

  7. Mary Ann Clark Mary Ann Clark says:

    They all should be charged with attempted premeditated murder,hate crimes and torture! Our government needs to protect us from monsters such as these future serial killers!

  8. To Kayden, may God bless and lay His healing hands on you, whatever happens, you will win in the end. To the murderous bullies – you all have a “bright” future haven’t you?? To the weak, lazy Justice system – if this was your child, these criminal children (age, should not be excuse to administer justice) may have been placed on attempted charges by now. Do your job – this is not arson!!!

  9. This is beyond horrible. These monsters need to be put away for the rest of their miserable lives. I work with Special needs kids and they are precious. This boy did not deserve this horrible and ugly fate. God bless Kayden.

  10. Wendy Morrison says:

    These bullies should be doused with gasoline and set on fire without medical attention! Know this sounds cruel, but as the Bible says “An eye for an eye!”
    Just saving taxpayers’money later on when they grow up in to criminals!!!!

  11. Parents of bullies must be investigated and also punished!
    An “Eye for an Eye” would make criminals understand.

  12. Richard Hofman Richard Hofman says:

    Oh, yes these young creatures are just doing what they have seen on TV or in cinemas…
    Don’t worry it will be worse in future….

  13. FOR THESE INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?

    ALL OF THAT  INHUMANE  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – FEED THEM  TO ALLIGATORS !

  14. Those little monsters deserve the harshest punishment possible.

  15. KatWrangler says:

    How can this boy’s aunt hear what she said she heard, and not call the police, or warn the family?
    And those little POSs are monsters. My 5 year old knows you don’t set someone on fire. What the hell is wrong with them. Hold them and their worthless parents accountable, and go after them all with every law you have. Rotten little bastards.
    God help me, but I’m beginning to understand the Code of Hammurabi.

  16. This so-called “group of bullies” is really a group of sociopaths. Does anyone really want individuals such as these in THEIR neighborhood ??? While their punishment will never be severe enough (to fit the unspeakable atrocity they committed), at the very least they must be held accountable and face the severest punishment allowed by law. Also, there is obviously something terribly wrong going on in the homes of these bullies; I can only hope that a thorough investigation, which includes investigating the parents of these bullies, will occur. In the meantime, my heart breaks for little Kayden and his family.

  17. Gen Lovyet Agustsson says:

    why set on fire like joan of arc?! humans e not really meant to be burned to death nor any other deaths related to killings! now we need to stop all forms of violence and have peace!
