- Program Description
In California, a six-year-old entered the home of a neighbor to steal a tricycle and savagely beat Ignacio Bermudez Jr., a 30-day-old infant. Today, doctors fear Bermudez may never walk, see or care for himself. FRONTLINE explores the conscience of a community and the haunting problem of violent crime in ever-younger children. The program also looks back at the highly publicized "crucifixion murder" case and examines the lives of two boys who murdered a playmate in 1971. Their experience has far-reaching implications for the Bermudez case and the youngest person in the U.S. ever charged with attempted murder.
