GINTA – When compassion is missing, the consequences can be deadly
LAST WEEK on Wednesday evening a 14-year-old lost his life to a suspected overdose. Carson Crimeni was alone as he struggled to stay alive, after being surrounded by a crowd of teenagers, some of whom filmed him and posted the video online. His grandfather found him in ‘very bad shape’ near Walnut Grove skate park in Langley. Carson was still breathing but died later that night in the hospital.
There are also rumours that he was bullied into taking the drugs by the same people who then documented the aftermath. His cell phone was found in a nearby garbage can.
I never thought that would be possible. Who could do such a thing? Why? Hopefully we will see this investigated and the people responsible for it brought to justice. Meanwhile, those people are out there and they know who they are.
