Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

Suns 101, Spurs 81
PHOENIX - The Suns squared their Western Conference semifinal series with a bandage on Steve Nash's nose and a second big man in the starting lineup.
With most of the crowd wearing nose bandages in honor of Nash, the Suns blew out the Spurs to even the best-of-seven series at a game apiece.
Amare Stoudemire scored 21 of his 27 in the second half for Phoenix. Nash, who cut his nose during Game 1, had 20 points and 16 assists as the Suns beat the Spurs in a playoff game in Phoenix for the first time in five games dating to 2005.
Tim Duncan scored 29 despite foul trouble for San Antonio, but got little help from his teammates.
Coach Mike D'Antoni's decision to start Kurt Thomas and have him defend Duncan freed up Stoudemire to concentrate on offense. As a result, Stoudemire had plenty of energy to counter Duncan's one-man show in the third quarter.
Stoudemire and Duncan each scored 15 in the quarter, but Duncan drew his fourth foul and left with 2:56 to play.
Thomas scored 12 on 6-of-7 shooting in 28 minutes.
After scoring 32 in Game 1, the Spurs' Tony Parker scored 13 on 5-of-14 shooting.
Nash, asked a tongue-in-cheek question afterward about what led to his bandaged nose, responded with a smile, "Can't remember."
ALL-ROOKIE TEAM: Blazers guard Brandon Roy was a unanimous choice with 58 points. He was followed by the Raptors' Andrea Bargnani (57), the Timberwolves' Randy Foye (48), the Grizzlies' Rudy Gay (39) and the Raptors' Jorge Garbajosa and Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge (both 37).
