CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - A seven-year-old Charlotte, NC boy was at the center
of a courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who
should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his
parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping
with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be
maintained to the degree possible.


The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more
than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge
then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that
they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that
domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took
the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have
custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare
officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Carolina Panthers,
whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

The Dolphins are probably better parents.

Oh. I don't follow sports, but yeah.. it would make sense that this would apply to any poorly-performing sports team.
