Three women in Jefferson, GA have been arrested and charged after filming a SnapChat video mocking a dying hospice patient. 

Jefferson Police Detective Jay Parker tells 11Alive that the patient had just suffered a stroke.  Mya Moss, Jorden Bruce and Lizeth Ramirez, were told to monitor her until the hospice nurse arrived. Instead of actually caring for the patient, the women recorded SnapChat videos while still inside the room and called it “The End.” The patient has since died. 

“They were obviously more interested in playing on the phone and making the video and cutting up and making a joke of the situation,” Parker told 11Alive. “My understanding is that the hospice nurse had been contacted, and these employees were supposed to be watching the female, and obviously that wasn’t happening.”

In the video, Ramirez and Bruce can be seen sitting in chairs laughing, screaming obscenities and using a vape cigarette. Moss actually shot the video.

All three women have been charged with exploitation and intimidation of disabled adults which, under Georgia law, is a felony and carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison or a fine of up to $50,000.

Watch the SnapChat video below:

 

“We take very serious the care and responsibility that people have to take care of disabled adults when they’re at a home like this. When there’s someone not doing their job that could cost a person their life, it’s very serious and we take it serious,” Parker said. “We don’t want that to happen to anybody’s family, and we want to make sure that does not happen again,” According to Parker, police have been called to the facility prior to this, but never for anything as serious as this, reports 11Alive.

According to 11Alive, Moss and Bruce have been released on bond, but, the federal Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has requested that Ramirez not be released at this point.

Parker said he doesn’t know if the incident had anything to do with the patient’s death. The facility said no resident’s condition was compromised by what the now-former employees are accused of doing reports 11Alive.

    I agree with L, and the bad thing about it is Ramirez is being held, possibly deported for being a Latino in Amerikka. God don’t like ugly, these young fools are going to learn the hard way of how to have some act right! Stupid is as stupid does! 21st century and folks still want to be this shameful! And if they don’t go to jail, then they’ll really know what goes around comes around!

    Hmmmm…go figure..a white, hispanic and black person again, doing stupid sh!t. Not enough sense to take care of a pet rock.

    They go from a nice job (career) to future inmate with uncertain futures. Something tells me that they want a do over for one of the dumbest moments of their lives. I bet a penny they aren’t laughing right now. The stupid gene doesn’t discriminate.

  5. Social media seems to have made some folks lose their effing minds!
    It makes folks INSENSITIVE/ANTI-SOCIAL.

    I hope these three POS are convicted and sent to jail where they will have nothing but TIME to think about their COLD-BLOODED deed.

  6. Everyone defending the actions of those little hoodlums crowding around a police officer, using words that would make a pimp blush, understand that the soulless individuals you’re seeing in these photos are what you can look forward to living with in the future. No respect for anyone. Pray to whatever God you choose that you die a quick, painless death. Because these parasites are who will be responsible for your welfare if you don’t. I can’t imagine the pain this person’s family must be experiencing at this point in time. Lord help us.

      Awwwwe…you know that even when black people act the fool with cops, it’s never their fault! That would be holding them responsible for their actions and that and that can’t happen! These sociopaths should never be allowed to care for anyone! This is heartbreaking and disgusting.
