Drunk teen set on fire, filmed at house party

I don't normally make a habit out of posting news stories, but I came across this today and it really made me pause and go "WTF". It just sickens me to see how low some people can stoop.

Quote:
An 18-year-old man is recovering from second- and third-degree burns on his back after he was set on fire after passing out at a house party in Kelowna, B.C., Friday night.

The man was lying on the kitchen floor when a liquid accelerant was poured on him and then lit on fire, police said. The incident was filmed.

Matthew Sweet-Grant, 20, and Joshua McWhirter, 18, have been charged with aggravated assault.

The victim is still in hospital with "very serious injuries," said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clarke.

"It's certainly very disturbing that somebody might do this to somebody that's incapacitated by drugs or alcohol. They're defenceless," Clarke said.


"But if you do a quick search on the internet you can certainly see this isn't the first time that it's happened and it probably won't be the last."

Clarke said investigators believe one of the suspects may have done something similar before, and RCMP are asking anyone with information about previous incidents to come forward.

Holy shit if you pour accelerant on someone, then light that person on fire, society has no place for you.

wow thats some stupid shit to do. But at the same time you gotta learn not to be dumb enough to get drunk to the point you completely pass out at a place where you can't trust the people to think reasonably. High school used to be trial and error with simple things, now its recording setting people on fire and gang bangs.

for attempted murder, i think you must prove an intention to kill and i highly doubt they had that. If the kid died, it would be manslaughter i believe.

correct.



you have to prove the actus reus (guilty act) and the mens rea (guilty mind).

if you cannot prove that the intent was to murder it would probably drop down to manslaughter.

well its pretty reasonable to expect not to be lit on fire if you sleep at a party.

All the videos on Youtube and WSHH of stupid people doing stupid things in parties probably fueled this...

Kid must have thought it would be hilarious.

Gone are the days where drawing penises on drunk friends' faces was the extent to what kids would do to each other

I've lit my friends hair on fire for shits and gigs.. But pouring gas on someone while they're passed out is a little different...

i didnt read the whole article... but 2-3 degree burns means this kid was on fire for a while.

it wasnt just a "haha that was kinda funny" they actually left the kid on fire.... wtf is wrong with people

i say burn the kids who did this, eye for an eye.

the problem with society is that survival of the fittest no longer exists, we protect those weak retards that would have died off otherwise based just on their stupid decisions.. leaving our world filled with these stupid fcks who breed and make more stupid fucks

with all the stupid tv reality shows such as jackass....im really not surprised in this. that movie started the ball rolling with kids filming each other doing stupider and stupider things and always trying to set the bar higher for the next person..

just this morning i was watching a show on action ch, called the worlds dumbest *something* (every day it seems theres a different title...worlds dumbest backyard hooligans, worlds dumbest criminals...etc) and all it was was people doing stupid pranks on each other...
