There are messed up crimes in the world, and sometimes the worst deeds are committed for the most trivial of reasons. When Deserae Turner from Utah innocently used the Snapchat app the way she wanted to, she could have never dreamed that two cruel boys would use that as a reason to shoot her and leave her for dead.
Turner had been messaging a boy from her school on Snapchat, and apparently, she was doing so too much for his liking. Instead of telling her, he complained to a friend, who said it wouldn’t be hard to get rid of her.
The two boys, apparently having no conscience, arranged to meet up with her in a canal, where they planned to slit her throat. When Deserae turned up to meet them at the canal, they were too scared to go through with the plan.
But they lured her there again a few days later, and when they found they were once again unable to follow their original plan, one of the boys shot her in the head. They then stole her backpack, money, and devices and ran, leaving her to die.
But thankfully, Deserae was reported missing, and it wasn’t long before she was found. She survived. Meanwhile, social media users have taken to their keyboards to express their anger at the crime committed by the thoughtless boys.
Many insist that they should be tried as adults, with some even suggesting that their parents are charged as well. The fact remains that these boys should receive suitable punishment for their crimes, and that there is no excuse for taking someone else’s life. Ever.
