A sad side-effect of the social media age is the loss of the concept of what is sacred. It seems to coincide with a loss of good common sense. This is my only explanation of this incident.
On June 13, three workers at the Bentley Senior Living in Jefferson, Georgia were assigned one task: watch over an elderly stroke victim until a hospice nurse arrived. Instead, the three young women chose to record a Snapchat video.
The video, which they titled “The End”, shows them mugging for the camera, making obscene gestures and one of them even smoking on a vape pen. Mind you, this was done in the room of a dying patient they were supposed to be monitoring.
A fellow employee saw the video and reported them. The three workers, Jorden Lanah Bruce, 21, of Jefferson; Mya Janai Moss, 21, of Colbert; and Lizeth Jocelyn Cervantes Ramirez, 19, were fired the day of the incident, June 13.
On June 22nd, they were arrested and charged with exploiting an elderly and disabled person.
Bruce and Moss have since posted bond. Ramirez, however, is now facing even more serious prospects. This incident has jeopardized her immigration status and, as of last Friday, she was still in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
