Some people claim that social media has made people into monsters.
Actually, there are people for whom Facebook is more important than family and friends. They will do anything to please strangers, neglecting relationships with their loved ones. Sometimes they do dangerous and illegal things just to shine on the Internet for a moment. Sometimes they go one step too far and pay the highest price for their stupid exploits.
An Algerian father, to attract the attention of his Facebook friends, did a shocking act. He grabbed his tiny son with one hand by the t-shirt and threatened to throw him out of the window if he did not get 1000 likes. To prove that he is not joking, he immortalized everything with a mobile phone and uploaded photos to his profile on Facebook with the signature:
“1000 likes or I’ll drop him.”
The photo shows the kid and a section of the street and parking lot below. The man had an apartment on the 15th floor. If he dropped the child, he would fall from about 46 meters! Needless to say, he would not have the chance to survive, but the villainous father did not do anything about it. Terrified, Internet users reported him to the police and the man was arrested on suspicion of abuse against his son.
Did he receive punishment? More about this on the next page.
