Darwin didn’t miss this time

Some people are so spectacularly stupid.

No doubt some people will blame the gun…ignoring the drinking and the appalling gun safety…only a fool wraps his finger around the trigger when posing for a photo.

I think we could even blame Facebook here for provoking people into posting outrageous photos on their timeline.


A 19-year-old woman accidentally shot dead her brother while posing with a gun for Facebook photos on New Year’s Eve.

Manuel Ortiz died instantly after being shot in the head at about 6am on Monday morning.

Family and friends wept as his body was carried from his apartment in Phoenix, Arizona, where the shooting took place.

Police said 22-year-old Ortiz and his sister Savannah Ramirez arrived back at the home they shared on New Year?s Eve after spending the night drinking.

They were with two other people when someone in the group pulled out the handgun to take photos with it.

As the 19-year-old posed and played around with the weapon it went off striking Ortiz in the head, according to?ABC15.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 9mm to the temple is always fatal.

On both Manuel and his sister’s Facebook pages there are numerous shots of them posing with guns and making gang symbols.

No great loss by the sounds of it.

Darwin hit his mark this time.
