In a sad commentary of the times we are living in, five teens laughed at a disabled man while they watched him drown. They didn’t even try to help him.
The teens, aged 14 to 18, recorded themselves taunting 32-year-old Jamel Dunn as he drowned in a Florida pond.
Although, police thought they couldn’t press charges against the kids because the law doesn’t require you to save a person’s life, they might have found another law they could be charged under.
Police plan to file misdemeanor charges under a law that mandates anyone who “becomes aware of the death of any person” must report it to officials.
The boys didn’t do that.
According to Cocoa Police Chief Michael Cateloupe, charges have been sent to the state attorney’s office.
The Chief added that pressing charges was “a way to hold them accountable for their own actions.”
Their parents should have taught them better!
Young Conservatives reports:
One of the sadder stories you’re going to see all year involved a group of teenagers laughing at a disabled 32-year-old man while he drowned.
The video was hard to watch.
Now, the five teens (ranging from ages 14-18) could be in some big trouble.
