Facebook Fight Lands Man In Jail

By Wyatt Earp | October 8, 2011

How pathetic must you be to get into an argument over Facebook? Or worse, how pathetic must you be to get into a physical altercation over the social network?

Pretty pathetic, right?

Facebook update resulted in the arrest of a Texas man who allegedly beat up his wife for not “liking” his status. Benito Apolinar, 36, of Pecos, Texas, was arrested Monday following a fight at the Carlsbad, N.M., home of Dolores Apolinar, the Carlsbad Current-Argus reported.

According to the criminal complaint, Benito Apolinar posted a comment on his Facebook page about the anniversary of his mother’s death, but Dolores Apolinar didn’t click the “like” status button. (H/TSmite)

In fairness, why would she “like” the fact that his mom is worm food?

    I really think that facebook has become one of the most insidious monsters of the electronic age.

    LDIV – It’s a huge popularity contest, and since I’m not popular . . .

    Sally Anne – Agreed. I like Twitter, but FB is lame.

    USAdmiral – Had a job this morning where some toad entered a 95-year old woman’s home and stole her diamond ring. So, this story doesn’t surprise me much, but it does make me think society is swirling down the bowl.

    Wyatt it does seem that way, but the old guys said the same thing in 1910 and 1920 and 1930 and so on.

    Oh hell, I got my reputation flushed down the crapper because of a comment I made on Facebook.

    (Most) everyone wants to have their 15 minutes of fame, or feel like a rock-star, and Facebook engages the inner-narcissist in people; a desire to post every little detail of their life at each moment, hoping to get “likes” on each post and witty banter about it.

    When the disease, known as Facebook, takes a strong hold of it’s prey, the victim will leave the Facebook site open in a browser window, constantly refreshing it (especially after posting something, for the previously mentioned reasons).
