In July
2017 Floridians, and soon the rest of the world, became fired up with
outrage when learning that a group of teens had filmed a disabled man
drowning. While Jamel Dunn was fighting for his life in a lake, the
teens laughed, ridiculed him and recorded the event on their smartphones
for their own perverse entertainment. They displayed a marked
unwillingness to help him or notify the authorities. Afterward, they
posted the video on social media and went on with their lives. Dunn’s
body wasn’t found until three days later. Florida prosecutors were
skimming the case for possible legal violations but ultimately decided
not to press charges, as no law in Florida regulates this kind of
behavior.
Why do
you think that no law in Florida makes the teens’ behavior illegal? Do
you think Florida law ought to change in this regard? Why/why not.
