Teens Violently Attack Elderly Man Resulting In His Death, You Won't Believe Why [Video]
What is wrong with the youth of today? Whatever happened to respecting your elders? This story is sickening. Some teens were at The Great Fredrick Fair in Maryland and witnesses say they attacked 59-year-old, John Weed. Weed was at the fair with his family when he was approached by a 15 and 16-year-old who decided to hassle him for a dollar. Weed said "no" and one of the teens decided to escalate the situation, sucker-punching Weed. If that were not bad enough Weed died due to this attack.
"Sheriff’s deputies responded to the midway area of the fairgrounds around 5:36 p.m. Friday for a report of an assault, and found the man lying unconscious on the ground, according to the sheriff’s office release.
Paramedics responded and the man was flown to R. Adam Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
The investigation identified two juveniles as suspects, who were arrested and charged by sheriff’s deputies. No weapons were used in the incident.
They are the only ones facing charges for now, Clarke said.
One 15-year-old male was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment, and a 16-year-old male was charged with second-degree assault, according to the release."
"Investigators who responded to the scene interviewed witnesses who indicated that the attack on the man was unprovoked, according to the release."
"I think it’s despicable, and it tells me a lot about how these young people view this person by the very fact after they had him on the ground they taunted and they spit on him,” Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins said. “That to me shows hatred and disgust and despise.”
The State's Attorney also commented about the incident.
“There’s plenty of times where good people make bad decisions, but when they result in somebody’s death, you get punished,” Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith said.
“They made an adult decision by doing what they did and ended up with a man losing his life, the sister losing a brother, whatever,” Jenkins said. “They deserve the maximum penalty.”

What the heck is wrong with them? They killed a man over a dollar. The State's attorney is right, they deserve the maximum punishment. They should be tried as adults for what they did. They took a life and in the video, it shows they thought it was hilarious and even spat on him.
