Commentary: Snitching is doing the right thing

I don't know Michael Brewer, but I can tell you that he is an upstanding kid because even though fearful, he did the right thing. Brewer, 15, was doused in rubbing alcohol Monday afternoon near his Deerfield Beach neighborhood by one classmate and then set ablaze by another -- both miscreants part of a group of five who allegedly surrounded Brewer during the immolation so he couldn't escape. Police say the accused wanted to punish Brewer because one of them was arrested after Brewer reported the attempted theft of his father's bike.
