Teens MOCK Disabled Man As He Drowns And Fail To Report Death To Police – Now They Are Being Charged [VIDEO]

Well, this is good news. The gang of five teens who watched, laughed at and videoed as a disabled 31 year-old man slowly drowned to death in a pond last week in Florida, are going to be charged after all. A disabled man had a quarrel with his fiance. She left and fifteen minutes later, he walked into a pond in front of five teenage boys who caught it on their cellphones and then posted the video to social media. He had a cane and couldn’t swim. The boys taunted him and told him they would not save him. They were good to their word… they watched as he died in that pond and did nothing.

The authorities say there was absolutely “no moral justification” for them to act this way. Unfortunately, they also say that no laws were broken. Until now that is. They are using an obscure law to nail these thugs. The ages of the boys ranges from 14 to 18. “Get out the water, you gonna die” and “ain’t nobody fixing to help you, you dumb (expletive),” they yelled at him from the shore. When it became obvious the man was going to drown, one of the teens exclaimed, “Oh, he just died” and then the sociopaths just broke up laughing. When they were interviewed, there was absolutely no remorse. One of them smirked during the questioning while his mother wept over what he had done.

From TheBlaze:

The five teens who taunted a disabled man while videotaping his drowning in a Florida pond earlier this month — never making an attempt to assist him — will now face charges.

“That video is disturbing,” Cocoa Police Chief Mike Cantaloupe said during a Friday press conference. “I don’t even know if I can think of words to describe it.”

Authorities originally indicated the teens — who range in age from 14 to 18 — couldn’t be charged since they weren’t directly involved in the July 9 death of 31-year-old Jamel Dunn, and state law doesn’t require bystanders to intervene when someone is in distress.

“I want to think that’s a natural instinct for any of us, that if we saw somebody in trouble or somebody having an issue, that we would at least try to get them help,” Cantaloupe added.

The police are now saying they’ll pursue a misdemeanor charge of failure to report a death under Florida Statute 406.12 — and whether the charges stick or not will be up to the State Attorney’s Office. With the outrage over this case out there, I hope they make it stick. It’s just monstrous to let someone drown like that and just watch and laugh as they beg and scream for help. To video it as he finally slips beneath the water and drowns is sociopathic. “It’s our belief that this law has never been enforced in a scenario like this, but we feel it could be applicable,” Cantaloupe said, adding that “what it comes down to is it’s a moral issue.”

The boys were smoking dope and getting high when they saw the guy go into the water. The police are now looking to get a law passed that makes it illegal to not help someone in distress like this. “I think that would be the huge win, I think that would be justice,” the police chief told the media. “We don’t want another family to go through what the Dunn family has gone through.” It took three days to find Dunn’s body. They never called 911 or reported it at all.

Here is the transcript of what the boys said – I’ll just leave it at that:

“You a f***in’ junkie!”

“Get out the water, you gonna die!”

“We not gonna help your ass!”

“Ain’t nobody’s gonna to help you, you dumb bitch! You shouldn’t of got in there!”

“He just died!” one said amid cackling.

“This man ain’t getting back up,” one said soon after.

“Yeah, he dead, but he gone,” another noted. “RIP.”
