Some people or incidents make us believe in humanity while others make us lose it all over again as we see their worst side.
A man laughed, joked and urinated all over the child’s memorial in a New Jersey park. Everyone is shocked after seeing the footage, and it’s one of the most disrespectful acts anyone could imagine.
He did it with the thought it would be funny to post the video on his social media channels, after sharing it with his friends and family members. The video went viral immediately, and he got a negative response.
The memorial was built to honor the Christian Clopp, a 9-year-old boy who passed away from brain cancer back in 2012.
The two New Jersey men were very quickly identified to the authorities as Bryan Bellace of Egg Harbor and Daniel Flippen of Hammonton. Flippen was behind the camera while Bellace desecrated the memorial.
Bellace has been charged with lewdness and criminal mischief for his disgusting act and Flippen received a citation, but both the men have to face millions of people all over the world who have seen their disgusting behavior.
Bellace met Christian’s father and apologized for his acts, so at least he realized what he did.
Both men have given the excuse that they were drunk, but many have argued in return that no amount of alcohol in one’s system should ever justify doing something so degrading.
Both men have used beer as their excuse, but many have argued in return that no amount of alcohol in one’s system should ever justify doing something so degrading, especially to the memorial of a young child.
Bellace told ABC News that he was drunk and doesn’t even remember getting to the park with his friend.
‘It was a big mistake I made. I was intoxicated. I didn’t know what I was doing at the time. When I came to my senses the next day, I realized I made a huge mistake,’ he said.
‘I wish I could take it all back and make things right, but it happened.’
He said he has reached out to Christian’s family to apologize.
‘I can ask for forgiveness from the family. I’ve reached out and I apologized for what I’ve done. This should have never happened,’ Bellace said.
Fortunately, there is another positive side of this story that will help us to feel little better is that the local area volunteered to clean up the memorial and pay their respects to Christian.
It’s good to know that when a couple of people do something terrible, there are more people come to make things better and show off the brighter side of humanity.
A ‘Bubble Brigade’ was even organized in the area to honor Christian and spread some joy in the wake of the event.
A group of local people, armed with bubbles, marched through the park blowing bubbles and dedicating the day to Christian, and his family.
