What is Wrong With People – Teen Charged After ‘Selfie With Dead Body’
A US teenager has been charged with murder after authorities say he took a selfie with the dead body of a boy and sent it to a friend on social media.
The 16-year-old, named by news reports as Maxwell Marion Morton, is accused of shooting to death Ryan Mangan, 16, at his home in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, on 4 February.
The alleged selfie depicted “the victim sitting in a chair with a gunshot wound to the face” and male “taking the selfie with his face facing the camera with the victim behind him”, according to a police affidavit.
It was obtained by police after a woman reported that her son had received the photo via Snapchat.
The woman also told police that her son had received text messages saying: “I told you I cleaned up the shells” and “Ryan was not the last one”. -news.sky.com
I would like nothing more than to sit here and tell you how shocking this is, but to be honest, I can’t do that. This is what teenagers have become. Savages with no remorse for their actions (generalizing like crazy right now). First off, what is going so wrong in your life that you murder one of your classmates and then when you realize what you’ve done you take a picture of the body and snapchat it out to your friends. That, ladies and gentlemen, is insanity at its finest and it makes me worried about our future.
