Joseph Hall was a *tortured little ten year old boy and a ward of the state when he shot his nazi father in the head in Louisiana. His father frequently held hate filled nazi gatherings in the home & in drunken a drug fueled rage he beat his son severely and regularly.
Joseph had been thrown out of many schools and shown violent behavior (reported violent behavior) since he was 3 years old.
What does being a Ward of the State mean in Louisiana? Why after 20 calls to the home by Social Services & multiple reports of strangling people & other violent behavior, was he left in this toxic stew of a home?
What does it take for a child to find refuge in Louisiana? Will the state execute the boy (he is being tried as an adult & Texas has ignored a federal ban on executing the mentally incompetent).Details
