Ice Bucket Challenge

Autistic boy prank victim

4 Sep, 2014

Unidentified teens convince an autistic 14 year old from a Cleveland high school to take part in the ice bucket challenge, then dump a bucket of excrement, spit, and cigarette butts on the boy’s head. The perpetrators film the incident using the boy’s cell phone, and post the clip on a social media site. Police Chief Mark Spaetzel, of Bay Village, Ohio where the boy lives and goes to school heads the investigation to discover who initiated and filmed the act, and to apprehend them.

To me, it’s reprehensible … that these kids would take advantage of a vulnerable teenager.
