Camp included many kids who've had a tough life, Menchaca said
I'm doing my best to deal with comments as they come through, without checking names, simply by trying to avoid comments with name calling or other inappropriateness. Its been a while since I've been doing this, but I'm appalled at how much of it I'm seeing for such a minor day in the case
@Amy: Our experts say they likely volunteered, but they are also subpoenaed, meaning they do have to appear
