Is It Really Fair To Prosecute This Woman After She Posted That She Killed Her Boyfriend On Facebook?
Metro- A woman has been arrested after she admitted on Facebook that she had stabbed her boyfriend to death.
Nakasia James posted online that she’d killed Dorian Powell, 21, last week adding that she was on the run from police.
But she’s now been caught and arrested in San Bernardino, California.
Listen, you can call that a confession if you want -because Nakasia basically admitted, in detail, that she killed her boyfriend-but I believe in a little thing called doctor-patient confidentiality. If you can't take your incessant need for therapy to Facebook then where can you take it? If this post is submitted as evidence then I have got a lot of people -that I haven't talked to since high school- that I need to warn about disclosure on social media. Come on, did that read like she was professing her guilt, or did it read like the scrambled, bipolar thoughts of someone that was trying to understand her feelings? People don't use that many emojis when they are taking responsibilities for their criminal actions, they use that many emojis to try to explain the range of emotions they are experiencing. That sounded like something you'd hear from someone sprawled out on a leather couch, not something you'd hear from someone sitting in isolation with a bright desk light shining directly in their face. Are we really going to put this woman behind bars because she wasn't heady enough to get a real psychologist? Maybe she was just trying to save a little bit of coin by having her family, friends, acquaintances and a variety of perfect strangers talk her through her problems. If that's a crime then my newsfeed is basically a murderer's row. Okay, maybe not actually murderers, but a fair amount of people that are guilty of thinking their extended social circle gives a single fuck about their daily lives. Sometimes I think that's just as bad.
P.S. 5 likes? Not too shabby for a post that included domestic abuse and a fatal stabbing.
