This is really just a wild guess but something tells me that when Mark Zuckerberg and his friends thought up the concept of facebook, the last thing on their minds was that it would ever become a tool for killers and other undesirable elements to use to brag about their crimes. But more and more such people have opted to use the medium for odious purposes.
Take this dude for instance. Says he got tired of his wife punching him or something daft like that. Hey dawg, GET A DIVORCE! That way maybe you still get to eat what you want to eat when you want to eat it, choose your own clothes, bedtime, n friends, but no! Dude had to do it the neanderthal way and put it up on facebook so no one is left in any doubt.
Good thing is, he has saved the police a whole lot of time and effort.
And guess what Medina. We DONT love you back.

A Florida man has been arrested in connection to his wife’s murder after posting a graphic photo on his Facebook page showing a blood-spattered woman slumped on the floor.
In a message that appeared on his personal Facebook account Thursday morning, 31-year-old Derek Medina, of Miami, allegedly admitted to the murder of his wife, 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso.
‘Im going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare Facebook people you will see me in the news,’ he wrote. ‘My wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope u understand me.

Medina supplemented the photo apparently showing his murdered spouse lying in the kitchen with blood covering her face and left arm with the comment: ‘Rip Jennifer Alfonso.’
MailOnline chose to obscure the image due to its extremely graphic and disturbing nature.
Medina’s post and shocking photo of his murdered wife remained on Facebook for five hours before his profile was taken down just before 5pm Thursday.
Miami Herald reported that Thursday afternoon, Mr Medina walked into a police station and turned himself in, confessing that he had shot his wife following a domestic dispute, according to investigators.
Officers who were dispatched to the couple’s home at 5555 SW 67th Avenue discovered Jennifer Alfonso’ body.
A 10-year-old girl was led out of the residence wrapped in a red blanket. The child is believed to have been present during the shooting, but was not harmed.
The woman in the picture is bent over backwards at the knees wearing black leotards with her head in the corner of what appears to be a kitchen.
The unsettling post left several of Medina’s friends puzzled, asking him what happened.
Kayla Amando Pabon wrote about the woman in the grisly image: ‘That is my friend there.’
On his Facebook page, Medina listed his occupation as actor on the USA Network show Burn Notice, but it appears that the 31-year-old was at one point an extra in the series, the Broward-Palm Beach New Times found.
Medina’s Facebook profile was taken down just before 5pm Thursday.
In an interview with the local station WSVN, Medina’s father, Derek Medina Sr., said that his son came to him at around 11am Thursday and admitted to shooting his wife.
‘He just said that his wife picked up a knife on him, and they had a big fight, and he shot her,’ said the father.
The elder Medina drove his son to a South Miami police station, where the 31-year-old turned himself in.
Derek Medina Sr said that girl who was removed from the apartment wrapped in a blanket is Alfonso’s daughter from a previous relationship.
According to the father, his son had a rocky relationship with Alfonso. He said that the two got a divorce after being married for three years, but tied the knot again last year.
Alfonso listed her occupation as a server at Denny’s. Records show that she married Medina in April 2012.
The woman was last active on Facebook Wednesday, some 15 hours before the image of her body appeared on her husband’s page. At the time, Alfonso changed her profile picture to a photo of her kissing Medina.
Miami New Times reported that Medina has published a number of self-help e-books, among them one titled: ‘How I Saved Someone’s Life and Marriage and Family Problems Thru Communication.’
His works, mostly bearing odd and lengthy titles, are available through the site e-junkie priced between $999 and $11.99. At least one is out in paperback selling for $19.99.

His latest offering is ‘World Just Ask Yourself Why We Are Living a Life Full of Lies and How I an Emotional Writer Made All of My Professional Dreams Come True Blocking Society’s Teachings.’
In a summary of one book, Medina claims he can hunt ghosts and at one time saved his wife from a poltergeist attack while they were in New York.
Elsewhere in his writings, Medina talked about his experiences with aliens and lamented that humans are not working on a time travel machine needed for an ‘evacuation plan.’
Medina’s YouTube account features a video of him as an extra on the show ‘Burn Notice.’ The page also has a clip of a man kicking a punching bag in a gym.
