Fight on Facebook turns deadly: prosecutors
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | September 19, 2013 | RUMMANA HUSSAIN

A 30-year-old woman gunned down her rival at a West Side gas station last month after the pair got into a fight on Facebook, Cook County prosecutors said Thursday.

Khalila Southall, who fled to Rochester, Minn., following the Aug. 26 shooting, allegedly admitted to Chicago Police that she and Lakeisha Tate had a previous argument on the social media site and “did not like each other.”

Before she was killed, Tate, 28, made a purchase and was walking out of the gas station in the 3300 block of West Harrison when she was confronted by Southall in a red dress, Assistant State’s Attorney Joe Crocker said.

The two started fighting on the ground at the entryway to the gas station store when Southall pulled out a gun and shot Tate in the leg and torso, Crocker said.

I made some assumptions before following the link.

And I was right.

Actually, there is one other element to the story...disrespect by one to the other, and likely vice-versa.

This is the ‘rage’ now...once you do some disrespect, there’s nothing better to fix the situation than a gun or knife fight.

I don’t know where this started....but I would imagine at least three thousand folks a year....die via “disrespect”. The death certificate may not say that...but it might as well be that. Strange world that we have evolved into. Course, in the 1790s...if you got into disrespect...you had a pistol duel out in some cowfield, and your buddies toted the dead guy to a proper burial.

“Earlier this month, Southall was arrested in a domestic incident in Rochester, according to news reports there.”

“Southall, who wore her long curly brown hair in a ponytail in court, has previous convictions on a drug charge and aggravated battery to a police officer.”

Wow, we have a real winner here.

BTW, not to make light of the tragedy, but with an aggravated battery conviction, I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that she doesn’t legally own the .25 pistol she used to murder the other woman. So much for gun control, Rahm-bo.

Aggravated battery means battery with a weapon.

Sound like it’s about time for some common sense facebook control like universal background checks for users and limiting facebook pages to no mre than seven friends.

Before I read the article I knew something about the perps. There are only two groups that are full of anger and hate, and act on it at the slightest provocation.
When I read that it was women, that eliminated one of the victim groups.
The article confirmed my suspicions.

I have it on good authority that "Khalila" is Ubangi for "Affican Princess".

Curiously, so is "Lakeisha".

The strangest thing about this piece is that the author/authoress feels the need to include fashion descriptions, e.g., a red dress and a curly, brown ponytail.

The two started fighting on the ground

I'm guessing they started fighting standing up and only went down on the ground later.

“This is the ‘rage’ now...once you do some disrespect, there’s nothing better to fix the situation than a gun or knife fight.”

And the “fix” is more brutal that a simple stabbing. I took note of a recent, well publicized murder in a high school north of Houston, in Spring, Texas because I once graduated from there a long time ago. A racial gang rivalry and announced intentions what would happen the next day. Somebody disrespected someone else and what really transpired in the hallway was not reported in the media. The loser was gutted like a deer. A knife ripped him open from the belt to his neck, and then his throat was cut from ear to ear.
