    5 teens laughed and filmed a person drowning. How sick. Police will not charge them. Never offered help, never called 911.

    "There are no words to describe how utterly inhumane and cruel the actions of these juveniles were towards Mr. Dunn," Cantaloupe said. "I want to express my deepest condolences to Mr. Dunn’s family and friends."

    Sad, very sad. However the whole country is drowning and no one is helping that either.

    Yes, that is the present mentality, promoted by the Trump clan. No more socialistic things or be kind, only grab what you can. Capitalism at its best. Hate crime is on the rise because of "racism" is promoted by our present government attitude related to "white Christian supremacy"; the word "Christian" is far removed from being Christian in this case. The guy was "black"

    I find it horrible that all those people standing around watching someone fighting for their life, with phones in hand, didn't even place a call for help or assistance. Very sad that there are people like this. It wasn't that way many years ago. People these days seem to get joy out of someone's suffering. After all, what did the person drowning do to them to warrant letting a person die like they did?

    Nobody will be charged, due to Florida law. Which reminds me of the man who shot an unarmed black teenager and got away with murder. Florida laws seem backwards to me.

    You're absolutely right. This is another example of the stupid, shallow, insensitive nature of our population. Hopefully Karma will visit them one day when they're in urgent need.

    We as Americans have come a long way, but it seems we're going backwards these days. It was reported today that some or all of these individuals may face misdemeanor charges. The person was dead for 5 days before police found out about the incident.

    I can tell you this. Those people watching, laughing and letting that man die are not an incredibly unusual group. They are officially represented by the Republucans supporting the Trump healthcare promise. Just change the drowning man to the poor and the laughing kids to the Kill Bill Supporting Repubicans. Takes on a sobering aspect when realizing how true laughing at a dying man is common through out the Senate.

    And charge the GOP the same if the Kill Bill passes. Wonder if Twump will comment about the dying man.

    Well you know Chet, that most all lawmakers, even government employees have the best of healthcare coverage, which means they probably have access to the best doctors available. The republicans have been pissing down poor peoples necks for years and told them it was raining.

    The group of people laughing while a man drowned before their eyes reminds me of a MC club I was once running with, one of our riders went off the road and hit a tree which killed him instantly, one in the group of riders suggested we go back to the wrecked motorcycle and see if there were any salvageable parts we could strip from the deceased owner's bike. A couple of us told that biker he was sick and morbid. To me, his suggestion made my stomach turn. I quit riding with that group a day after because it was for sure they didn't give a f*ck about anyone.

    Seeing no value in others is quite sad and problimatic. Change laws and penalties to be 10 times more punitive is something but better parents are what's needed.
