A rather disturbing story out of Jacksonville, FL in 2018 pretty much surmises a major issue we have in this country today… out of control teenagers.
When Dylan Broughman’s grandmom decided to hide his beer from him while he was showering, he decided to beat her into oblivion.
About a week later, she died from the injuries from this punk simply because he was not getting his way.
He was initially charged with aggravated assault, but it was upgraded to a murder charge after his grandmother passed away.
It is important to note here that his grandmother had done the right thing.
The drinking age in Florida is 21 years old, so he should not have even had the beer in the first place.
According to reports, when his grandmom would not let him have the beer, he began beating her profusely.
The police were called to the residence just after 8 a.m.
When they arrived on the scene, they immediately noticed that Broughman’s grandmother, Joyce Courson, was bleeding horribly on the floor.
Broughman’s roommate was Dillon Ross, and he was a witness to the crime.
He said he heard Dylan and his grandmother arguing, and then there were several loud bangs on the floor, followed by Courson’s screams for help.
“My friend’s grandmother just had blood everywhere,” Ross said. “She had bled out all over the floor, and she had a nasty head wound. The house was completely trashed, with a bunch of holes in the wall.”
They took Mrs. Courson to Memorial Hospital, and before she lapsed into a coma, she was able to tell authorities that her grandson was the perpetrator.
Like the drunken coward he was, Dylan Broughman fled the house right after this terrible beating.
He was soon found by police walking along Kernan Boulevard and he was promptly arrested.
Dylan has found an unlikely ally in his mother, Tracey. “He isn’t responsible for killing grandma,” she said. “She already had a heart condition, anyway.”
Ironically, Tracey herself had been arrested for violence against Courson herself.
His mother’s reasoning is very much the problem with some kids today and is no doubt the same attitude the parents many of these ANTIFA thugs have.
When you don’t make children play by the rules and hold them accountable when they are growing up, you get angry adults incapable of dealing with failure, and, well, reality.
It is truly a scary thought that we seem to have more Dylan’s these days and parents willing to accept that than responsible young adults.
