    Defriend someone on FB? Get killed.

    This is just crazy.

    Facebook "defriending" led to double murder, police say - Yahoo! News


    NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - A Tennessee couple who "defriended" a woman on Facebook were murdered in their home by the jilted woman's father and another man, police said on Thursday.
    "It's the worst thing I've ever seen," Johnson County Sheriff Mike Reece said, adding he had never seen anything like it in his 27 years in law enforcement in the area. "We've had murders, but nothing like this. This is just senseless."
    He said Billy Clay Payne, Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth were killed last month after they deleted Jenelle Potter, the daughter of one of the suspects, from their "friends" list. Both were shot in the head and the man had his throat cut.
    The couple's 8-month-old baby was in the mother's arms, unharmed, when the bodies were found.
    Marvin Enoch "Buddy" Potter Jr., 60, and Jamie Lynn Curd, 38, were each charged on Wednesday in Mountain City in northeastern Tennessee with two counts of first-degree murder. The men were arrested on Tuesday.
    The case was not the first involving violence linked to Facebook. Last year in Iowa, a woman was arrested on accusations of setting fire to a friend's garage after she was defriended on the social network site, local media reported.
    In Texas, a man was accused of hitting his wife after she failed to "like" a Facebook post he wrote about the anniversary of his mother's death, according to media reports.
    In the Tennessee case, Reece said a couple of harassment cases had been filed against Jenelle Potter in court over "someone blocking her or taking her off."
    "Once you've crossed her, you've crossed her father too," Reece said, adding that Jenelle Potter, in her late 20s or early 30s, stays home with her parents and was constantly on Facebook.
    Her father, "Buddy" Potter, will return to court next week for a bond hearing after he hires an attorney. Curd, also a second cousin of one of the victims, was appointed an attorney and bond was set at $750,000 for each murder count. His preliminary hearing will be in March.
    No charges have been filed against Jenelle Potter, the sheriff said. She could not reached for comment.

    Seriously, this is not trolling, but it's just my personal opinion that SNS should just be banned. It's crazy. Most of the 800million+ users of Facebook have no idea what kind of information is being leaked every minute. It's my personal opinion that most SNS active users are just bat-****ing crazy or at loss with reality

    You don't have any idea what information is leaking either, if any. Don't have a heart attack over it.

    What a pointless, wasteful murder.

    Absolutely heartless.

    I defriended this dude yesterday because he wrote some dick post on my wall, and I've seen him like 5 times since highschool and he got all pissed and started talking **** to me about it. Why do people take FB so damn seriously?

    I shut down my FB page altogether. It amazes me what people will share; then again, we're in the reality show world now, and everyone has to be the star of their own picture show.

    It was creepy the people that come out from under rocks and suddenly want to have lunch with you because you were in 9th grade English together.

    Seems like they are leaving a lot out and it may be more than the 'defriending'. Of course it doesn't make it any better, but puzzle pieces are missin. Also people do get accidentally deleted all the time on fb. THere have been times a friend has added me, and I'm like; ''I thought we were already fb friends''. Glitches drop friends from time to time.

    Too many fruitloops out there and most found their way to FB. I dumped my account there the best I could but you know the old saying "once you put it on the net, it will always be on the net".
