The Good Samaritan law protects a person if they try to help. It does not oblige a person to help. There is no law that requires a person to help someone in danger unless you are a legal guardian or caretaker or it is your job.

Criminally negligent manslaughter. Couldn't the psychos be charged with that? Or are they supposedly "too young," or something?

Criminal Negligence only comes into play if a persons actions are at fault for the incident leading to the death. Drunk Driving being one of the main cases. Unless their actions led to him drowning Negligent Homicide does not apply to this case.

So it looks like the chief of police wants them charged under a statute that requires a person to notify the authorities of a death. It's not enough in my opinion but I want them to face some sort of charges.

It seems pretty clear that their refusal to aid a drowning man, even enjoying it, caused his death. To be fair, though, their apparent glee at his suffering and demise implies criminal intent, so I suppose "involuntary" isn't accurate.

From what I read earlier today, didn't that guy had a fight with his wife or was it ex-wife and he got so angry that he start walking into the lake and start drowning?

Now..isn't that his fault? Sound like to me he wanted to die, he is living unwanted life.. Sounded like it >.<

I agree what those teens did are harsh and they even video taped it...



It was his fiancée he got into an argument with. I saw the interview with her and she didn't seem that broken up. Really odd story. She was just mad at the teens.

With that said this is disturbing. The kids were identified and are between the ages of 14-16. They're young, stupid and lack empathy. If there's any justice to this story their peers will avoid them.

This is how killers are born. Lack of empathy and total disregard for human life. They enjoyed watching a person die? These kids need help fast.

It's about what happened leading up to the point where his life was put in danger. Not their reactions to it being in danger.
If that was how the law worked then my refusal to give a starving man money or food would count as Criminal Negligence.
Criminal intent is the Intent to do a crime. Their apparent glee is cruel and immoral but not the intent to commit a crime.

For fuck sakes people, can you not be awful for at least one page? ><



Calling out turds for being awful- literally LAUGHING while a man died- is now, itself, awful?

Gonna have to disagree. No amount of verbal abuse hurled at these "kids" could ever possibly be unjustified.

I read earlier today that its something to do with arguing with his wife or ex-wife and he got so angry that he just walk into the lake and drown himself.. In another word he doesn't know how to swim...Obviously...



If that is true and I saw him just walk into the lake I'm not sure I'd risk my life to go save a guy who was trying to kill himself when there very well could be alligators in the water since it is Florida. Though to clarify my knowledge on whether alligators are that common in lakes isn't really based in anything so if I was a resident of Florida and knew the area what I just stated I would do would be subject to change.


Not running in after him is reasonable. Not calling the professional aid services to come help is unconscionable. Laughing while videotaping it is sociopathic, evil, and reprehensible.

Nope. It doesn't count as proximate cause, because they did not conduct an action that *caused* him to be in the situation in which he drowned. They just didn't *fix* the problem. Which they are not legally obligated to do. Ethically and morally, yes, but not legally.

But they're still dirtbags and I heartily hope that a few months down the road they find themselves slowly bleeding out and watching all the passers-by ignore their pleas for help.
