Outrage: FL Teens Mock, Record Drowning Man, Get Minimal Charges. [VIDEO]

The things that make you shake your head and wonder about the future.

Last week five Florida teenagers laughed and mocked a man drowning in a pond. Then, like everyone else of their generation, they videoed the event and posted it on social media.

Here’s the video. It’s disturbing, just so you know.

Legal experts all agreed that these cold-hearted little bastards (yes, I said it) had no obligation to rescue the victim, Jamel Dunn. They cited Justice Anthony Kennedy from a 2012 legal argument, who said that there is no obligation to render aid. “You don’t have the duty to rescue someone if that person is in danger. The blind man is walking in front of a car and you do not have a duty to stop him absent some relation between you,” he said.

Well, yes. But the Cocoa Police department said Not so fast. In a press conference held on Friday, they announced that they would charge the boys with a misdemeanor, which involves failure to report a death. After that the state attorney’s office would be responsible for prosecuting them.

Imagine that. A slap on the wrist for this pitiless, sociopathic response to a man in his death throes.

However, should American citizens be required to give help to people in danger? Other countries do, like Germany, Argentina, Russia, Italy, and France. Furthermore, public servants like police, fire fighters, and bus drivers must give aid in case of accidents. In schools, some states require professionals to report cases of suspected child abuse. So should these be nationwide requirements?

I think that would open a Pandora’s box of lawsuits, so I really don’t want to go down that road.

But the bigger issue here is this: what kind of kids are so lacking in empathy that they would laugh at a man dying? And then record it to publish for the world to see? 

These are kids with no moral compass, no feelings, no souls — just an unrelenting urge to make it big on social media. I don’t know what their backgrounds are, but I’d be willing to bet there are no fathers around. Yes, I said that, too. I know it’s not politically correct to question single motherhood, but our 40% illegitimacy rate is leaving devastation in America’s social order.

On the other hand, a rescue of another near drowning victim was filmed just last Sunday. In Long Island Sound, a dog rescued a fawn that was drowning. Later two humans took the little guy to safety.

Yes, a dog was more compassionate than those Florida teens. An animal showed more kindness than human beings. Let that sink in. Meanwhile, these budding sociopaths will be charged with their misdemeanors and go about their amoral lives. And Jamel Dunn will never learn that he was the unwitting and tragic star of a YouTube video.

    The POS’s that filmed this, if convicted, will wear it like a badge of ‘honor”.. that’s all they care about in those “communities” As you said, the complete destruction of the family in certain parts of the country breed this (along with the future democrat voters they’re sure to become, should they live that long) Since we all know they won’t get what they deserve from the justice system (and I agree that proper behavior in these situations should be mandated by parents, not the state), we can only hope that when karma comes knocking, she’s one pissed off Biotch….

    ooh, and I’m sure that any lurking leftists will get all upset, but i’m gonna say it… “If obama had sons….”

    Let’s see….

    Indocrin—-er, um—-educate a generation or two of students with the worldview that there are no moral absolutes (they are positively absolute about that!); there is no higher moral authority to whom they might answer (wonder who that might be?); if it feels good, do it; that humans are simply a more highly-evolved form of animal with no intrinsic personal value and then — GASP! HORRORS! Who woulda thunk?) — we are shocked, simply shocked I tell you to discover that these progeny of an academic combination of Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies might actually treat other people with the same detached, apathetic attitude that they would treat some insect crawling across the sidewalk.

    Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind.
