FNN: Five teenagers who taunted a drowning man while recording his death from afar may face criminal charges, a Florida police chief said Friday. Cocoa Police Chief Michael Cantaloupe said Friday he will recommend the state attorney prosecute the teens under a statute that requires a person with knowledge of a death to notify a medical examiner. The state attorney will decide whether to file the charges, which would be a misdemeanor under that statute. The chief’s statement was a shift.
Authorities previously said the teens wouldn’t be charged because Florida does not have a law that obligates a citizen to render aid or call for help for anyone in distress.
On Friday, the office of State Attorney Phil Archer issued a statement, though not in response to the chief’s comments about recommending charges.
“We were asked to make a preliminary review of the video regarding any potential charges for failure to provide aid,” the state attorney’s office said. “Unfortunately, there is currently no statute in Florida law that compels an individual to render, request or seek aid for a person in distress. We are, however, continuing to research whether any other statute may apply.
“F**king junkie, get out the water, you gonna die,” said the teens to Dunn. After Dunn started to show signs of distress, another teen adds, “Ain’t nobody’s going to help you, you dumb b**ch. You should’ve never got in there.”
So many people sent us this story. We haven’t blogged about it yet because we were waiting for the names of the Rhodes Scholars who watched him drown to be released. But they’re teenagers and they live in Florida so that doesn’t look like it’s happening any time too soon. If this happened in Massachusetts someone would know by now and would’ve told us and we would’ve reported it and gone through their Facebook page and given them the full Turtleboy treatment.
But unfortunately they live in Florida and our Florida connects are lacking. And without that there’s not much we can say that everyone isn’t already thinking – these kids should be tarred and feathered and forced to listen Tony Deyoung’s new album 24 hours a day.
Even if these asswipes couldn’t swim they could’ve still called 911, called for help inside, tried to look for a boat. Anything really. But instead they stood there, called him names, and said they weren’t gonna help him as he took his last breaths. Granted it was pretty stupid of someone who can’t swim to walk into water that’s above his head. But people do stupid shit all the time, and it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t try to at least save them from their own stupidity.
Believe me though, nothing would make me happier knowing who they are. Especially since they still don’t seem to give a shit:
“At least one of the teens expressed no remorse while being interviewed by detectives,” Cocoa Police Department spokeswoman Yvonne Martinez said.
Whoever their parents are should be shamed as well. They have completely failed as parents. Their kids stood there and watched another human being drown. And since this isn’t a Seinfeld finale there’s nothing that can be done to them legally, but the court of Turtleboy will definitely take the case. So if you know someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows who they are, let us know. They apparently posted the video initially on social media, which means their names are out there somewhere on the Google machine.
Look, I know they’re kids, but these kids are the anti-christ. Normal people don’t do what they did. And they’re gonna grow up to become adults who think the exact same way. The only cure is public humiliation. Let’s find them.
