The Death of Brent Martin

The following story has been brought to my attention from the Disability Studies blog:

A young man was the victim of random ugly violence in the UK. The tragedy of this situation was that he was targeted because he had a mental disability-- who could knock him down first-- on a bet. These three youth beat Brent Martin to death....


1. Share this information with as many people as you can. Education and awareness is a 24/7 job...evil never sleeps

2. Consider wearing a black armband in his memory-- and share the story when asked.

3. Post a comment to the online condolence book of his local newspaper

4. UK residents-- advocate for the full measure of the law to be applied. Send a message that all life is valuable-- all violence again all life must have grave consequences.
