Putting the Scum in Scumbag
A 17-year-old faces a felony charge of injury to a child after police found a videotape that appears to show him and another man teaching his 2- and 5-year-old nephews to smoke marijuana, police said.
The video shows two children being taught to smoke marijuana and the men encouraging them to "get high," police said. A man can be seen placing a marijuana cigarette into a baby's mouth and, in another part of the video, a different boy is shown smoking on his own.
"The video contains disturbing images of the young children being badgered into smoking a marijuana cigar, commonly referred to as a 'blunt,"' according to a release from the Watauga Department of Public Safety.
The bail for Demetris McCoy, 17, was set at $150,000. He remained in jail Friday night, police said.
Police found the video Feb. 22 while investigating McCoy and Vanswan Polty, 18, in connection with some area burglaries. [I'm truly shocked. - ed.] Polty faces burglary charges and is free on $22,000 bail, according to court records.
If only Senator Kennedy and Speaker Pelosi could get a "living wage" bill passed to help this nice young man cover his cell phone and narcotics expenses. Surely, he'd become a model citizen we could all be proud of.
Not to mention, a lifelong Democrat.
