A pair of savage, teenage predators has been arrested and charged with intentionally running over a retired police chief who was riding his bicycle in Las Vegas. The underage thugs live streamed the attack on social media.
Andreas Probst, a retired California police chief was struck and killed in August. His wife and daughter found his body lying in the road after they were alerted by his Apple watch that he had stopped moving.
Jesus Ayala, who was 17-years-old at the time of the attack, faces 18 charges, including murder. He had a long criminal history in the juvenile system and many citizens are wondering why he was not already in jail.
Ayala showed absolutely no remorse and predicted that he would just get a slap on the wrist.
“You think this juvenile [expletive] is gonna do some [expletive]? I’ll be out in 30 days, I’ll bet you,” the thug reportedly said in comments provided to CBS News in Las Vegas. “It’s just ah, [expletive] ah, hit-and-run — slap on the wrist.”
“It’s a complete lack of conscience on a part of it and the worst part about it in the video is you hear that everything was intentional,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Detective Lt. Jason Johansen said.
A 16-year-old, who filmed the public execution, was also arrested and charged.
Police said they also tied the teens to at least three hit-and-run incidents the same day. They believe the slaying of Probst, a former police chief in Bell, California, ended the spree.
Many are calling for both teenagers to receive the death penalty.
