Well, something told me it wouldn't take long for Death to start racking up a ridiculous body count. Hell, from the looks of things, Death just couldn't wait for the ball to drop...
I mean, you know your life is not exactly breaking the way you want it when your New Year's Eve winds up with the actual headline: Sister, 19, accidentally shoots dead brother in the head while posing with gun for Facebook picture. In Phoenix, Arizona, 19-year-old Savannah Ramirez accidentally shot and killed her brother, 22-year-old Manuel Ortiz during a New Year's Eve celebration.
The incident occurred around 6am when Ramirez, Ortiz, and two friends arrived to the home Ramirez and Ortiz shared when one of the friends pulled a gun. Not because there was trouble or anything, but you know, because it's a party and all, which naturally means you gotta pose with the gun, because how else are they going to know you're gangsta on Facebook or Twitter? As Ramirez fooled around the gun went off, striking Ortiz in the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
In the article, it mentions that both Ortiz and Ramirez's Facebook pages feature several photos of them posing with guns and making gang symbols. Indeed. Score one for the Dumbening...(Mortal Kombat voice) Fatality. Ramirez was questioned and released pending further police investigation, which in all likelihood means waiting for the blood tests to come back. Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Martos said Ramirez would likely be charged with manslaughter if tests conclude she had alcohol in her system.
And remember people, this was at six o'clock in the morning...Death was anxious to get at 'em in 2013. got a little excited, and gave us one last stupid death of the year, just in the nick of time.
