The Mutilation, Degradation, and Humiliation of Joseph Marcus Barron

Joseph

This exposé of gross dereliction and political misconduct on the part of Bexar County, Texas, reflects a growing trend in this country. Joseph is afflicted with Huntington’s disease, a terminally illness which causes dementia and psychotic episodes. A National Honor Society member, a musician, an athlete, Joseph is confronted by three Bexar County Deputies while sitting in the family car. The deputies, aware of the boy’s affliction, understanding the family only seeks medical assistance, chase the boy from the family home. Cornering the boy against a neighbor’s fence, where he throws his arms into the air, the deputies shoot mulitple times striking the boy three times. All takes place as his mother watches helplessly on. But that is only the beginning of the family’s nightmare. Joseph is charges with attempted capital murder, taken from his medical team, and tortured in the county jail.
