To the Facebook Idiot

To the complete idiot who just posted a vile comment on the story thread on Facebook: Maybe just once in your life you could summon up have the class and empathy to hold back on your shitty little cellphone imagine how the family and friends of the victim might be feeling right now. Unbelievable that we’re sharing the neighborhood with despicable people like you.

Four pieces of shit actually gave the thumbs down? Let that sink in for a moment. What the hell is wrong with you people?


Most large news sources have dropped the comments sections because of the low life’s that tend to frequent them. Kind of like a car accident, it is hard not to look, but you will never see anything good.

These weren’t anonymous comments. These were people who openly commented on Facebook. It doesn’t occur to them that friends and family of the victim might read their comments. Amazing.
