Crime

Teens Film & Mock Drowning Man. Heart-breaking.

By

Really tragic to think of this actually happening, but killing and crime have become commonplace in movies/videos/tv that it has desensitized so many to not grasp the humanity involved.  Think about that.

While MOST can watch this stuff and separate it from reality, all too many can’t.  Consider that the next time you pay Hollywood to watch a violent movie.  These actors are millionaires, and oddly enough “liberal”…all for the under-dog, the persecuted refugees, etc.  Yet they are entirely insulated from them. And too often what makes the majority of them rich is the very same thing that desensitizes too many to real life violence perpetrated on YOU AND ME. NOT them. A very sad world.

Of course one can’t BLAME the above crime on Hollywood, but one might consider what forces contribute to this inhumanity.
A group of Florida teens who taunted a drowning man while filming his death will not be criminally charged, according to Orlando police.

In the more than two-minute long video, the five teen boys between the ages of 14 and 16, can be heard laughing as the man struggles to stay afloat, police say, in a pond near his family’s Cocoa, Florida, home. Instead of calling for help, the teens recorded the incident on a cell phone, chuckling during the victim’s final moments.

The teens can be heard warning the man that he was “going to die” and they were not going to help him. At one point, one of the teen boys can be heard laughing, saying “he dead.”

The state of Florida currently does not have a law where a citizen is obligated to render aid or call for help for anyone in distress.
“If there was (a law like that) we would charge them,” Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman tells WESH TV, Orlando.

“The family is frustrated … the detectives are frustrated, that we cannot hold anyone accountable for this,” Martinez added. “No one deserves to go like that.”

Police say the incident happened on July 9, but even after the teens recorded the video and witnessed the man drown, they did nothing to alert authorities.”At least one of the teens expressed no remorse while being interviewed by detectives,” Martinez said, claiming the fact that they did not report the incident to authorities further speaks to their lack of remorse.

The family of the victim, identified as 31-year-old Jamel Dunn, initially filed a missing person’s report on July 12, three days after he had already drowned. His body was recovered from the water on July 14.
