A fifteen year old boy has been gruesomely killed in Las Vegas while being robbed for his iPad.
Two men — Jacob Dismont, 18, and Michael Solid, 21 — have been arrested and charged for open murder, robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery in the death of teenager Marcos Arenas.
Arenas, the oldest of ten children and a student at Bonaqnza High School, was walking home from school with his two-month old iPad when Solid and Dismont pulled up in a car and tried to grab it from his hands. Arenas refused to let go, resulting in him being dragged, then run over.
Arenas’s father Ivan said:
“For him to lose his life over an iPad, it’s just not fair,” Ivan Arenas told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Never in my life would I imagine that me buying my kid an iPad for his birthday would end up with him getting run over.”
What a tragedy. An iPad isn’t worth losing your life, or taking someone else’s.
