EliteDaily- A British man beat his friend to death after discovering the victim had made a mildly flirtatious gesture to his girlfriend on social media.
There is really only one part of the story that needs to be focused on. The significant part of the story is that this guy got what he deserved. It doesn't matter if he knew if the girl was his friend's girlfriend or not. Non-issue. Darwin stepped up to the plate and went yard.
This guy deserved to die because he is a 29 year old man poking people on Facebook. Whether he knowingly poked his friend's girlfriend, or whether he thought he was poking a random girl is inconsequential. 29 year old men should not be poking people. In fact, no one over the age of 14 should be poking anyone.
With the dating apps out there now-a-days ( tinder and the like) trying to get laid is like batting in the steroid era. Everyone's numbers are inflated. Poking someone is the equivalent of juicing and then bunting for average. Not only does it not make sense, it's extremely inefficient. If you can't find a way to hit on unsuspecting girls without poking them than you don't belong in modern society. This guy's friend did the Lord's work, and it is a damn shame he will have to see the inside of a jail cell for it.
Oh, and they were out for a night on the town, but alcohol was not mentioned to have played a role in the murder? Is that a real statement? Two guys that are damn near 30 got into a fatal fight in a cab over a fucking 'poke' button on Facebook. Is it really a question whether alcohol was involved? If alcohol was not involved then they should kill the guy that's going to jail too, because both of them were of high risk to the general population.
P.S. Must have been really good friends. I mean if you are killing your friend over this girl then it's safe to say you have been together with her for awhile, right? And supposedly you either never introduced your friend, or he didn't remember her. Pretty lousy lads, eh?
