Two of the four suspects in the Center Grove High School plot in Indiana have been released. And while one set of lawyers is trying the “our clients are retarded” defense. The fourth lawyer is trying the “my client is not retarded” defense. Huh?…
“There’s no ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) action, no alternative school, and he is the only one without special needs and without federal guidelines in his favor,” Newcomb said. The boy’s parents do not want him to return to the high school and will not fight the expulsion in an upcoming hearing with the school, Newcomb said.
“We are going to seek alternative schooling for him,” he said. “We are working with the prosecutor because he has less culpability than some of the other boys.”
Translation: Your honor, my client isn’t retarded like those other 3 so he should be treated better than those 3 retards over there.
It doesn’t specify why the “non-retarded” one is being released but the article states one of the other suspects was released so his parents could set up supervised living arrangements.
