Last week I read the most ridiculously sad, confusing, and alarming story I’ve read in years. A young man murdered an older man over a comment he left on a picture of the younger guy’s girlfriend. Twenty-year-old Antwion Courtez Martin went to the apartment of 48-year-old Edmond James Tyree and shot him to death after reading a comment, “Damm” [sic], Tyree left on a picture of Martin’s girlfriend, 21-year-old Sharda Perkins.
Yes, that’s how real the internet has become in 2013.
Although we will never know what Tyree really meant by his comment, or if he had any type of relationship with Perkins, but Martin definitely exhibited the same corny characteristics many men and women are guilty of when it comes to cheating: Focusing their rage on the other person.
One person posts a racier-than-usual photo on Facebook, and their partner gets mad at the people who comment, instead of their significant other who posted it. One person flirts with strangers at the club, and their partner tries to step to the stranger, instead of checking their significant other for acting out -of-pocket. One person cheats with a complete stranger, and their partner decides to attack the stranger while barely addressing their significant other. This behavior is the height of stupidity.
