Two Angels, I think not. The young man was already on probation. With all the cases of child abduction, bullying, and drugs these days this can't be brushed under the rug. If this is how these two young adults, which they consider themselves to be, get their thrills it as an indication of underlying issues which need to be addressed. If the 16 year old girl had been the younger child who was teased and taunted, I'm sure her parents would want some action.
Hopefully the court will not be too lenient on these two. Otherwise, they will feel they got away with it, which is what they must be accustomed to. Accountability is crucial in the case.

What might they have done if the child had walked up to the car? Continue with the teasing? Thankfully the little one knew to get away from them.
