The first paragraph in the July 22nd article about “laughing teens” says it all.
The problem with our “legal experts” is they have disregarded all common sense, common decency, and certainly all moral, responsibility. It is incomprehensible that anyone, young adult, adult, or child could be educated at home or anywhere else to believe that laughing at a person drowning is funny.
It was pointed out to me that we have so much garbage on television being watched and somehow approved of, that it is no wonder our youth think everything is okay as long as it does not affect them directly. Some parenting in this case could be a benefit!
The show on television that people find so funny, where people do stupid tricks and frequently get hurt badly, just so they can be on television and win a prize, for being stupid, amazes me. Does anyone that watches those programs consider the idiocy of the actions made, or is just me that does not find pain humorous?
In ancient times, people were devoured in the arena by lions, massacred by other people with swords, chains, and all of the other weapons of those times, just to please a crowd of people wanting to see blood. Should we start using the arenas we now have for sporting events, invite the mayor of the city, and let him/her turn their thumb up for life, or down for death, depending on the desires of the fans? Should we should start that new sport with the ‘so called’ judges that interpret the law the way they see it and expect us to buy it!
Have we, as a country of people, reached back in time to bring forward this horror and total lack of morality to please ourselves, while watching others suffer? Before this becomes a new national spectator sport, maybe we should put a stop to it!
Our Supreme Court interpretations have become a wart on the constitution and the amendments. Some are so old they can hardly walk or think, others are so political they have no idea what was meant when the constitution was written. Those that interpret the law should have to be judged as they judge.
