Facebook murder video leads to arrest of teens who posted it
According to CNN, a group of U.S teenagers who posted a vile video of them ‘murdering’ an innocent man have been arrested on murder charges following the release of said video via Facebook’s social network platform.
Prosecutors allege that Malik Jones, 16, was the initiator of the attack when he started a game called ‘Pick em and knock em out’ prior to having reportedly punched Delfino Mora, 62, in the face.
Nicholas Ayala, 17, and Anthony Malcolm, 18, used Jones’ cell phone camera to record the attack, picking up the “loud crack of his head hitting the cement,” prosecutor’s spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said.
