    All of those fit.
    These were just some stoned teenagers whose perception of what they saw was shaped by their inebriated state.

    They were afterwards scared to report what they saw because they were underage kids using illegal drugs at the time. And because the idiot who drowned himself was an angry violent man.

    They need drug rehab, and they need it for a period of several years so it sticks. The military academies we used to have would be ideal.

    All of the people calling for these kids to be locked up and the key thrown away or to be drowned themselves or to have their names posted as a fourteen year old living in the same neighborhood as the dead gangbanger are indeed a lynch mob. Or to throw them behind bars with adults.

    And the more the lynch mob - yourself included ratchets up their defense of their selfrightious lynching the more I ratchet up the counter attack in defense of these kids.

    I am a rehabilitation mind of guy when it is juveniles unless they actively perpetrate violence.

    You aren’t going to wear me down on that. No matter how shotty you are about it.

    Trying to elevate yourself or tear me down won’t get me to side with the lynch mob. The little mob here has tried saying black youth are beyond redemption or that opposition to the lynching is liberal or leftist or whatever.

    Bullcrap.

    All those vacuous arguments are pretentiousness, and the people calling for harsh punishments rather than rehabilitation are pompous lipsticks.

    The Idea that behavior is determined by the manner one is raised, external discipline, and one’s relationship with God rather than genetics is neither delusional, nor “being triggered”, not leftism.

    Hold on to your train of thought though. You will be defending it in the future.

    You have never exhibited rationality.

    As a matter of fact, when you were faced with refutation of your made up point on this thread by someone whose child doesn’t fit your mold you came up with the brilliant concept that a parent defending their child is “being triggered” and acting like the left.

    Make no mistake.
    You will be revisiting that assertion and having cause to defend your simile on many threads in the future.

    I won’t stalk you, but on any thread I am on thewhere you are pontificating similarly I will repost this conversation and you will get to explain how you were not over the line.

    Over and over again.

    Just like every Democrat, you insist that tainted DNA is a deciding factor in behavior.

    Meth heads and dopers and children who grow up in single parent homes act the same regardless of genetic makeup.

    Except in your biggoted mind.

    Just as ANTIFA proudly proclaims itself the enemy of fascism while practicing violent fascism and accusing its peaceful targets of fascism, You practice hard racism while accusing people who don’t believe there is any value in lineage rather than behavior of the racism you personally advocate.

    If that were a real crime then Dunn would have had additional time to serve, and would still have been in his cell instead of drowning.

    He was mad at his girlfriend. He was angry and shouting before he became panicked and drowned.

    Well, to make it equivalent they would have to be in a group, smoking weed, and filming the arrest while mocking them.

    Of course, the police might then make more arrests.

    This could be a good thing really.

    If you made a chain of all the dope smokers in Cocoa Florida mocking one another and filming each other being arrested in a big base of.marijuana smoke you could clear up a lot of problems.

    Good idea.

    Thirty-two years ain’t a kid.
    Unless you subtract all the years “Money” Dunn spent behind bars. I guess he could be considered young if you did that.

    There was a time in America when police academies wouldn’t graduate simmering candidates who were too delicate and scared to take a dog bite on the job.

    Standards and honor mattered back then so there were no metrosexual sissies on the force to defend the wimps we see doing this crap.

    Let me clue you in, you pompous biggot who lends credibility to assertions that Free Republic is an alt right storm front wannabe.

    The behavior brought on by drug use and lack of a father isn’t worsened by the race of the parents.

    One more thing, you disgusting sh!that. I am the parent of a multiracial child. Your sick racism disgusts me.

    The nineteen twenties called, but they don’t want you back.

    Sorry.

    Contrary to whatever drugged imaginings might rattle around in your feeble brain I went to school in the sixties and seventies.

    In high school worked at a Sonic where the dopers made their drug deals. I swept up twenties and even C-notes cleaning the parking lot because many of them tear off if a patrol car cruised by on the strip.

    I have accurately described behavior I saw almost every day.

    It is what it is, and if you want to try to get somebody to pretend something else with you...then you need to find somebody who has lived some sheltered life instead of people who have lived around this crap.

    It isn’t jaw dropping at all.

    If you have ever in your life been around heavy pot smokers, this is what you see when they are in a group.

    If you read other articles posted, the teenagers were smoking pot at the time. The behavior was typical for any stoner while they are using.

    I agree about what we will see from the potheads if there is a collapse, but it won’t be any different for those raised in better homes.

    They were using marijuana at the time.
    You know, that victimless crime drug.
    Which sort of helps to explain why they didn’t call the authorities.

    Also possibly relevant: the violent nature of the late Mister “Money” Dunn, who was sent up the river in 2013 for assaulting two counts of assaulting emergency medical attendants. If this guy will attack adult ambulance personnel, what’s he going to do to high school stoners in the water when nobody can swim?

    The guy had a fight with his girl, stomped off mad, and went walking out into the water. I am guessing his anger and screaming didn’t invite the stoners to later empathize with his plight.

    It’s an opportunity to put the kids in mandatory rehab, but let’s not write them off yet as a danger to society. That designation properly belongs to the decedent who himself was a product of our revolving door prison system.

    I do believe in rehabilitation. I also believe from observation that if drugs are involved it rarely sticks with less than three year sentences. Don’t treat these kids harsher than the judiciary who helped to form Dunn into what he was.

    According to his prison record, he was six foot five inches and two hundred pounds.

    Nope there isn’t.

    Also, not only is there zero reference to Dunn’s criminal record, but old pictures that make him look younger and less thug like are all that are provided.

    After I looked up Dunn’s criminal record, all this took on shades of a Trayvon Martin redux to me.

    What else did the writers outright lie about? I am not willing condemn those kids to the extent you are because the lies the article verifiably contain call the entirety of their contents into question.

    As I have pointed out, I did not start out with the position I have taken.

    I came to that conclusion after looking up Dunn’s criminal record and contrasting that with the article. Too much outright deception in what was written.

    I didn’t take matress girl at face value either.
    sometimes I want to know more, and if I find out an article has been lying i dismiss much of it until more is known.

    I will admit that I fell for the Duke Lacrosse hoax at the beginning, but I figured it out when Nifong started stonewalling the defense.
