The millennial landscape is a pretty lawless land. For every societal rule that is put in place, there is a millennial that will rub their balls on it before going out of their way to break said rule. Oh, they’re not supposed to post pictures of them drinking on Facebook? How about they put a video of themselves smoking a bong on Instagram instead because fuck your rules.
Granted, I think most young millennials will eventually have to answer to someone somewhere about the things they post on social media. Some are even answering for their decisions now. Like this Memphis teen who killed a guy and then put it on Snapchat.
Via The Smoking Gun:
“After allegedly killing a man in the parking lot of a Tennessee IHOP, a Memphis teenager sent friends a Snapchat photo of the victim along with the message “I just killed a motherfucker 10 minutes ago.”
Sebastian Vaughn, 16, was arrested yesterday and charged in the shooting death of Marlo Williams, 35, who was found dead Monday inside a vehicle outside the restaurant. Charged with second-degree murder, Vaughn is being held in the county’s juvenile detention facility. In an e-mail, a Memphis Police Department spokesperson said that since Vaughn is a minor “we do not have a booking photo for release,” nor will cops “release any personal information regarding victims or suspects.”
Detectives, who seized Vaughn’s cell phone, suspect that family members may have aided the teen suspect.
The Snapchat image of Williams…shows him slumped at the wheel of a Lexus and bleeding from a gunshot wound to the chest. Responding to a man down call, police discovered Williams in the car around 4:40 PM. Soon after, he was pronounced dead at the scene. At least one recipient of Vaughn’s Snapchat message contacted cops and provided homicide investigators with the grisly image.”
That’s just one of the most insane things I’ve ever heard. Casual (and horrible) IHOP murder aside, this is just the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of anyone doing. He essentially left his signature at the crime scene. It’d be like robbing a bank and then leaving behind an autographed copy of your yearbook photo. At the same time, it’s his own fault for being friends with snitches on Snapchat. This is why you have to keep your circle small. You think Tony Soprano would have had Snapchat? Absolutely not. He purposely doesn’t have enough friends for that. The more friends you have, the more likely it is that one of them is a rat. It’s street economics.
