Christian boot camp workers charged with dragging teenage girl behind van
BANQUETE, Texas: Authorities charged the director of a Christian boot camp and an employee with dragging a 15-year-old girl behind a van after she fell behind the group during a morning run.

Charles Eugene Flowers and Stephanie Bassitt of Love Demonstrated Ministries, a 32-day boot camp for at-risk teens, are accused of tying the girl to the van with a rope June 12 and dragging her, according to an arrest affidavit filed Wednesday.

The affadavit says Flowers, the camp's director, ordered Bassitt to run alongside the girl after she fell behind. When the girl stopped running, Bassitt yelled at her and pinned her to the ground while Flowers tied her.

The girl was treated for scrapes and bruises on her stomach, legs and arms.

The girl's mother gave investigators photos of her daughter's injuries and a sworn statement from a witness who claimed to have seen the girl dragged on her stomach at least three times.

Flowers and Bassitt remained jailed Saturday on $100,000 bond each on aggravated assault charges.

A call to Love Demonstrated Ministries was not immediately returned Friday. No listing was found for Bassitt. An answering machine at a listing for Flowers cut off during an attempt to leave a message Friday.

When I first read this, I thought "they dragged her to behind a truck" which is kind of rough, but not terribly heinous.

But then upon rereading it today, I suddenly realized that they tied her to a truck which then dragged her - just like those rednecks in texas that tied that black guy to their truck and dragged him to death.

What's with these people!?!?!?
