    Another case of a thug using social media for fame, this one in Cleveland. He shot an innocent 78 year old grandfather and live streamed the video. He blames his ex girlfriend fro driving him to it, along with his job and gambling problem. Now the police can't find him.
    This is not the first to live stream a horrendous act because they know everyone will repost it and make them more famous. What has the world come to that we will do anything to get our name out there?

    I know. Just horrible. Unfortunately, I keep saying this: the world has gone wacko!

    The guy is still on the loose, the police are having a hard time catching him because people are live tweeting the location of the police and the scanner feeds to get followers. He is suspected to be in the area I work in, not a day to be sitting on the sidewalk.

    Same here. This is so terribly sad. I don't know what this world is coming to. :(

    Yes I am glad also, I am glad that no officer had to take him down.

    Oh so true! Just can't understand this kind of mentality.
