Authorities investigating man recorded verbally abusing group of kids in park

Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Q.R. — Lemus “N” is being investigated by local authorities after he was recorded verbally abusing a group of kids. The incident happened several days ago but hit social media only recently.

In the video, one of the involved youths records the man verbally abusing the kids for sitting on a bench that he claimed title to. The man is reportedly a tennis instructor in Felipe Carrillo Puerto.

His verbal tyrant went on for more than a minute as he continued to insult the small group of kids who were sitting on a park bench in a public space in the Juan Bautista Vega neighborhood.

Felipe Carrillo Puerto mayor Mary Hernández issued an official statement against the verbal abuse caught on video. In her statement, she said she intends to pursue the matter to “the full weight of the law” and that “I will not tolerate any type of violence against my people.”

Hernández pointed out that the General Law of the Rights of Girls, Boys and Adolescents in the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States protects adolescents against “humiliation and discrimination”.

Shortly after her statement, the FGE of Quintana Roo also released a statement saying “The FGE of Quintana Roo reports that it initiated an investigation against a foreigner for acts of discrimination against some children who played sports in a park in Feliope Carrillo Puerto.

“This autonomous body endorses its commitment to seek justice so that the dignity and integrity of the girls, boys and adolescents of Quintana Roo is respected.”
