Teen cold­ness made me want to throw up

RE: Laugh­ing teens not obliged to res­cue drown­ing man (July 22)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

I can­not be­lieve that five teens could ac­tu­ally watch a dis­abled man drown and laugh all the way through it. It lit­er­ally wanted to make me throw up to know such cold­ness in teens ex­ist. And what makes it worse is they posted it.

It is heart wrench­ing to know that poor fam­ily had to find that out and know he prob­a­bly could have been saved. I hope Florida not only forces that off the web­site but some­how make those chil­dren pay. See­ing as they can’t be charged make them do vol­un­teer hours at some of the sad­dest fa­cil­i­ties that may find a heart in at least one of them. If the po­lice or courts can’t do some­thing let’s hope the par­ents step up to the plate. Deb­bie Es­cott, Hamil­ton
