Girl, 16, Killed After Teasing Friend Over Flatulence
"An Ohio teen was killed on Wednesday by a classmate enraged by her alleged teasing.
Witnesses told police that Shaakira Dorsey, 16, had been mocking a friend for farting before she was attacked, beaten to the ground and pummeled again and again.
Miss Dorsey died shortly after the argument, police say, and her unidentified juvenile attacker has been charged with murder."
This is an unfortunate incident that should have resulted in embarrassing glances, not punches and death.
When Shaakira Dorsey first teased her friend about passing gas, the suspect should have simply turned the other cheek and blasted her with noxious gas.
To resort to fisticuffs over an incident of flatulence is sheer insanity. Sometimes the best riposte is simply to let her rip.
The alleged farter has been charged with murder, girlfriend needs to take some anger management classes.
