The teen was released from the hospital and is recovering at home. The father said he's worried about the psychological damage as well.
What this man did is inexcusable but at the same time, these teens were actively harassing people. So while it may seem like a "harmless" prank, they do have to realize there are consequences to our actions, sometimes those consequences are fair, and sometimes they are not.
We have to asses the risks of our actions knowing that we live in a fallen, sinful world. I pray for the health of these teens, the anger and drug issues if the man, and for all their souls as they deal with the aftermath of this situation.
According to deputies, several kids were ringing doorbells and then running away.
