Today is Daniels 18th birthday. But hes not celebrating with cake or a party. Instead, he is hauled into a concrete bunker, blindfolded and shackled. You see, Daniel is a troublemaker at his high school. He is often truant. He smarts off. And, last week, he hit a teacher. The school district has waited for him to turn 18 to submit him for punishment because, as an adult, he can be stripped naked, severely tortured and sexually abused. In other words, his 18th birthday his first day as an adult will be pure hell. A beautiful boy, hairless and innocent, Daniel is stripped to his tiny briefs and bolted to a concrete wall. Do you see what is on that table? the man standing before him says in an emotionless voice. Daniel holds back tears as he looks over at the collection of whips, clothespins and clamps. Next week: Pinned, cropped, humbled.
