Poking on facebook is serious business.


Scott Humphrey, killed his friend Richard Rovetto for poking his girlfriend on facebook. Reports says during the confrontation Richard fell to the ground hitting the back of his head to the pavement. Richard, a father of one would die later on in the hospital from the injury. Humphrey admitted manslaughter and is going to be jailed for 4yrs and 4 months.

My thoughts: Obviously, this is a case of immaturity and jealousy. Personally, I believed that Humphrey should’ve got more years. Yes I understand that his intention wasn’t to kill Richard during that scuffle, but his intention was to do bodily harm to him. That alone should’ve got him more years. Now that I’m out of college and working I find it that a lot of adults don’t do social media anymore and this situation is an example why.
