Financial justice in boot camp death difficult



It took just one day at a Bay County juvenile boot camp for 14-year-old Martin Lee Anderson to lose his life after a vicious beating.

It took nearly a year for the state to charge eight people with aggravated manslaughter on a child in connection with his death.

It will take years for his family to fully get justice - if ever.

Steve Bousquet explains why in his column.
