Facebook led to the arrest of three teenagers in the murder of a 62-year-old Chicago man Saturday. The group unwisely decided to film their game of “pick ’em out and knock ’em out,” in which 16-year-old Malik Jones “picked” a 62-year-old man who had been collecting cans and scrap metal to sell, and knocked him out. The video, which they then posted on Facebook, picks up the sound of Jones saying “I think I’m going to knock this guy out,” and then the “loud crack of his head hitting the cement.” The man, a father of 12, died, and all three of the boys—though only one was 18—are being charged as adults with first-degree murder.
