Las Vegas police arrest suspect who allegedly made homeless man do a deadly backflip for $6

Source: CNN

(CNN) — Las Vegas police arrested a suspect they said goaded a homeless man into doing a backflip that led to a fatal injury.

Keonte Jones, 28, was arrested this week. The incident happened on June 20 after Larry Coner, 55, approached the suspect asking for money.

Jones told him he’d pay him $6 to perform a backflip and on Coner’s third attempt, he landed on his neck and was left to die while bystanders watched and laughed, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.

Jones was livestreaming the entire incident on Facebook, police said. Medical personnel were called and the victim was transported to the hospital with a serious spinal injury. He died 10 days later, police said.

5. the internet probably isn't helping

(reinforcing both the best and worst of us)
But this kind of thing (taunting, harassing, degrading) has been going on from time immemorial.

And (kills me to say it) but as despicable and disgusting as this mans actions are/were -- there is most likely very little in terms of real legal repercussion available against him.
Hope he loses his job, his friends, his house (if he owns one) and his girlfriend. (although, this kind of clown always has a new one in a week and a half)

7. SMH over the suspect's wicked idea of mercy and generosity. Surely, karma came back

swiftly with the unintended consequence of mocking the least among us on the streets for entertainment value. Laughing bystanders and FB viewers should take note due to the fuzzy nature of karma's reach! Shame on that brutal bully and reckless "employer."
