Facebook Argument Ends in Tragic Death of 14 Year Old American Girl



Kierra'onna Rice

Kierra’onna Rice

What started out as an argument on Facebook ended in the gruesome death of a 14-year-old girl.

CNN reports that a group of girls in Alabama decided to take their fight off Facebook and engage in physical battle at Birmingham park. They planned to videotape the fight and post it online.

During the fight, two teenage boys emerged, pulled out their guns, and started shooting sporadically at the girls, killing 14-year-old Kierra’onna Rice and wounding two others.

Authorities are speculating that one of the suspects was dating one of the girls who was fighting Kierra’onna.

      But we don’t conclusively know whether the boys who pulled the trigger were black. I’m wondering why we should automatically make assumption just because gun violence was involved? The shooters could have been white or Hispanic, as far-fetched as it sounds.

      BN posted a story and didn’t disclose the racial origin of the shooters. I’m going by the timeline of them publishing this story (8.08am) and when you posted your comment (8:25am). Now, I ask you to answer this in the utmost sincerity – did you already know the remaining facts of the story when you made the assertion above that they were black? If you truly did then I apologize as nothing in your comment gave me the impression that you’d gone to verify your claim from other sources.

      If you didn’t, think of how offensive it would have been to read a white person making the same bold assumption. I’m against any kind of racial stereotyping, whether it’s white-on-black or black-on-black or even black-on-white. And just to relieve you from any further confusion as to “why”, my response had nothing to do with “yapping” or however else your very offended (and somewhat offensive) self has decided to construe it; I simply asked a valid question which you’ve now answered so thanks for giving up some more of your personal time to clarify things. Much appreciated.

      I totally understand your point. However I will not allow my children to school in Nigeria either. Let’s face it between Boko Haram, poor infrastructure and corruption ( the list goes on) Unless you come from a rich home, you can make it. The problem with this story is that an innocent girl was killed for no valid reason. Truly tragic and sad. The problem is not social media, the problem is how people use social media for both good and evil.

      the point is, the ghetto kids is nigeria still have more discipline compared to ghetto black kids in america. i agree with fifi. even with poor infrastructure and poverty, you barely see this type of ratchetness displayed by young teenagers in nigeria.

    With the energy levels, raging hormones and horrible temper at the time, if I had facebook at 14, I probably would have attempted murder too. This has nothing to do with ratchetery.

    These teens need to join a dance crew, choir, knitting club, math club, something….anything! Just have them use all that energy on something productive instead of loafing around on the Internet.

    Very very sad indeed! The root of the problem is the gun control! How on earth could a young boy like that poses a gun and take it with him during a fights?

    Each country with their problem. “Overchop” and “overbelleful” is American’s wahala.

    I mean, you finish arguing online and you decide to fight in an open space and videotape it? How idiotic? And then one of the girl’s boyfriend who cannot be more than 16 has a gun? Me wey don old as Methuselah sef, na only on policemen that i see gun.

    Hmm, it is well.

    this is terrible. this is very common in the african american community. planning a meeting in the park just to fight each other and they carry their camera to record the fight and they post the video on youtube or worldstar.

    I see some of these videos on YouTube and Twitter sometimes. Young girls and boys fighting and videotaping with the video recorder screaming World star( some of these fights are for really violent and for trivial things like Twitter beef and in some cases you see a guy stepping and kicking on a knocked out persons head. Was only a matter of time for it to escalate to this level.

    ?..and show of stupidity like this is why teenagers should be tried as adults for certain crimes…… I know teenage years can be tempting, but its no excuse for being daft….. how do you sit in your home, punching some keys deliberately setting yourself up for a fight….are you mad?? Whats wrong with people???

    Abeg make I face my work… na Isio I been find come!

    It’s the gun culture they have over there…at least here in italy if someone owns a gun you know that they’re either a cop or a criminal.
    Brainless pimply teenagers are completely harmless here.

    should we be surprised at this when over 90% of movies and video games today contain gruesome violent scenes? even cartoons are not spared for this madness. these are what our kids are exposed to. parents, watch the type of movies and games ur children watch and play respectively.

    Its not the fight that is the issue. Afterall in those days students quarrel in class and end up waiting for each other somewhere on the way home or back of school with other kids waiting to watch and cheer them on. The 2 will fight wella and feed each other sand…end of story! it’s the possession of guns that is the real issue here.

    Whatever in Nigeria or America or London, only God protects regardless of where we are go to school or live.

    My cousin was sent back to naija for high school cos he was being bad here,like gangs and guns bad. 7 years later, he’s in naija and worse not to mention extremely spoilt and lavish. and he lovessss living in naija

    All in All God help us raise our kids the right way and protect their minds

    Why should a 14 year old have a facebook page in the first place? This is what you get when you allow kids all sort of liberties.

    Facebook and other social media including email portals have age restrictions yet parents allow their minors lie about their ages to sign up
