14-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed over Facebook Fight

Quote:

A 14-year-old girl was shot and killed in Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday night after a fight that started on Facebook turned deadly.

Police say Kierra'onna Rice was one of a group of girls who agreed to meet in a park for a planned brawl, Al.com reports.

But the fight, which allegedly started weeks ago on Facebook, ended up claiming the 14-year-old's life when two male suspects fired into the crowd of feuding girls, according to WIAT.

"This was an absolutely senseless killing," Birmingham Police Lt. Sean Edwards told Al.com. "They took it upon themselves to fire recklessly into a crowd."

The two males, ages 17 and 19, were taken into custody by police after the shooting. They are not being identified, though WIAT reports that one of them was dating one of the girls that fought the victim.

Senseless killing and senseless Facebook. I don't know why they waste their time on Facebook and take it more seriously than anything thing in the world.

Apologies and grief

Yasin Rishad 03-26-2015 05:54 AM

senseless people even are they human or not i have doubt? People now converting their debate into controversial quarrel and finally killing

legionhoster 03-27-2015 06:10 PM

Pretty senseless world we like in folks...

deepalmittal 03-31-2015 12:08 AM

it is a negative face of Facebook, facebook is taken wrongly by just presuming from profile of the member and his favorites. Actually real life likes and dislikes are different, in general.

feeling pity for the girl

This is a thing now? What in the hell is wrong with people? The amount of garbage you can dig into looking at the news... I barely read or watch it anymore. Much happier now.

There seems to be an escalation of violence forming directly from Facebook as of late. It's sad to read about someone so young losing their life over petty things, regardless of whether or not it was formed via Facebook.

HNC-Duy 06-17-2015 04:31 AM

We saw murders due to facebook everyday.

Ramadan 06-28-2015 04:28 AM

I still cant understand that why people take the online fights so serious.

hostnesta 07-03-2015 09:30 PM

Facebook commands too much power, and a lot of people are now abusing it.

Religious extremists
Political Fanatics
Social Lunatics

and you name them all...

advent_geek 07-10-2015 04:31 AM

which is the main reason

FB or Girl or Jealous or Ego

Factal 07-16-2015 06:27 PM

That's ridiculous. The girl reminds me of my little cousin who's also the same age.

I will pray for the girl's family.

shruti21 07-28-2015 10:55 PM

I will pray for the girl's family.Facebook is not a prime reason,there are so many good things which are possible only because of Facebook.So, if you don't like someone stop texting him.You need to avoid him.

dhanak 07-29-2015 02:39 AM

That's why i don't like FB :(

David K 09-26-2015 10:58 AM

Troublemakers will find trouble via facebook or whatever else is most readily available to them.

regibiz 10-04-2015 05:05 PM

Sharry Hi! I don't think facebook is senseless. There's a lot of good about facebook if people know how to use it. For example, many people have been able to find old friends, schoolmates, long-lost family members, etc, just by fooling around on facebook. It is also helping people make money with free advertisement.

The problem is discipline. People don't know how to comport themselves in a public forum which is the reason why these incidences keeps reoccurring. Even grown ups act like fools sometimes over there.

Judging from ages mentioned, these are teenagers trying to show who is tougher and it resulted in a tragedy. I got in a fight with a boy who was a bully when I was a teenager. He was always bullying the girls around. He never did that to the boys. So one day I decided to challenge him after school. The fight was a draw. Since that time, he never bullied us again. LOL. In our day, we use our hands to fight not the guns. Sad how the times have changed.

It's not the facebook that is responsible for it, but the people behind the issue. Facebook is just a medium, and it depends on a person how to use it. Like a knife is very useful when used in kitchen. But when used by a murderer it's a different thing.

abhiup81 11-13-2015 05:46 AM

This story is really horrific. How can people of this generation take social network communicate seriously and do something like this. Its really strange from our part and suicidal from their part.

tiyoo 11-24-2015 08:41 PM

Sounds about right, I mean someone had to take it to the next level. My guess is these were some pretty gangster chicks though.

I totally agree Facebook is a social media meant to help people connect better with the world around them ( friends,family and meet new people ). The thing is that if it is used in a different way, Facebook can be a dangerous place ( although, so is the internet and your personal information in it, but that is a different topic ) . As you said it it depends how you use it.

The love of many will go cold, everyone is aggressive and easily agitated i don't know why, but one thing i am sure of is that it will get worse unless something drastic and urgent is
done to cultivate it.

mohsin qureshi 12-21-2015 08:45 AM

I dont think technology should blamed all of this. There are advantages and dis-advantages of any think. It is up to people how utilized it. I feel sorry for that innocent girl.

amvoctelemarketing 01-11-2016 02:42 AM

Seriously. If you cant handle anything, Just destroy it.Thats now a days people are following Instead of finding solution.

packersandmovers 03-25-2016 06:50 AM

I still cant understand that why people take the online fights so serious.

Anubhav-soin 03-28-2016 12:09 AM

Facebook is just now proving "THE BIG WASTE OF TIME" nothing good come out of it. But you cann't blame the facebook completely, people themselves has to be responsible for what they do. However i do feel that there has to some social interaction with good groups apart from facebook community.

I completely agree with you.

Some kids want attention on the social media outlets and will do stupid things and take pictures of it or make a YouTube video to share online. Kids do stupid things online and there parents are part of the blame but not all of it. Parents need to monitor there kids who are active in the social media world. Or have a serious talk about the dangers of using it.

There are people who upload fake pictures, fake profiles and try to pick up young women online. There are a lot of nut jobs out there and will take advantage of young kids online.

Look, even myself when I became the Team Lead at the company I work for, I changed a lot about what I shared on my profile because you never know when your boss or an employee who works for me is spying on me trying to get dirt on me because I made them work on hard stuff at work 1 day and everyone else had easy work.

Also I can get fired for talking about certain things related to my company. Our company has a social media policy everyone had to read and sign.

I've seen a lot of videos of people fighting shared on FB which looked like young kids and people got seriously hurt from what I saw on the video feed. Then you see no one helping the person on the ground who is actually hurt. You got kids calling that person bad names and not helping or calling for a ambulance. They didn't care because they all thought they was cool because they on a video that will be shared on FB and most likely to half of the school

It's a sick world we live in and now you can document it online through video's and pictures. Of course you still have those people who just love the attention and will do anything to get it online. Meanwhile Ya got kids waving a gun around on a video that may not be there's but there parents gun in which they never locked up in the house. Young kids waving guns around in videos on Facebook scares me because I don't know if they was trained how to use a gun and how important gun safety is. Or even have a permit for it.

alecwell 05-14-2016 05:43 PM

What? Why is anyone even messing around with Facebook at all?

DNN 05-14-2016 07:10 PM

People are sometimes reckless when they write and post things to Facebook because the person or group of people this saying bad things to or not in front of them so the person who's writing the messages feel as if they are invisible and untouchable. These are the type of people known as fake Facebook gangsters.

spillednews 06-08-2016 03:08 PM

Parents should over see what their kids do on social media.
So many of these incident happen everyday, some may be reported while some may not.
I know it is an old post but i can't get my eyes off it after reading the title.

infoject 06-09-2016 02:21 AM

its one of the major drawbacks of new age social media

jafarjr 06-09-2016 08:37 AM

swapnarajesh 08-10-2016 02:35 AM
