Dustyn Murrain (above) experienced a harrowing ordeal last week when he was attacked and tortured in a shed by four peers, two of whom he claimed as friends. Murrain was beaten in the head with a crowbar, received shots to the chest and groin with a BB-gun, and then had a swastika carved into his forehead, likely by Blue Kalmbach, a student who claims that Murrain bullied them (by calling one of them 'gay') first.
Dustyn's mother, Kelli Murrain, has said that whether her son bullied the four teens or not--she does not believe that he did--his verbal harassment should never have constituted such extreme physical backlash.
"I've been called lots of names and I never went out and shot anybody or beat them in the head with a crowbar," [Kelli Murrain] said.
