Something tells me this kid is a tad insecure.
If your friend likes a photo of your girlfriend on Facebook, just feel good that you’re dating a looker — don’t go out of your way to shoot the person. Well, that’s exactly what one kid did to his friend.
A 15-year-old boy named Alex Pititto shot his friend Francesco Prestia Lamberti twice in the chest and left him for dead in an olive field in Italy after asking him to meet him there. And why did he do this? Because apparently Lamberti liked a picture on Facebook of Pittito’s girlfriend, and Pittito had long believed that Lamberti had feelings for his girlfriend.
But Pititto isn’t just any 15-year-old kid, he’s actually the song of Ndrangheta mafia boss Salvatore Pititto, who is also known as El Tio or the Uncle.
So clearly this dude’s dad had some sort of influence on him. Oh, and Pititto’s family were already arrested earlier in the year as his mom, dad, brother and cousin were arrested during a police crackdown on mafia operations. Nice family.
The teen already turned himself in for the crime.
The Ndrangheta mafia group have been around for a while, as they became one of the most powerful crime syndicates in Italy in the 1990s and 2000s. So this kid was just going to follow in his dad’s footsteps, and now he’s going to be behind bars because he was jealous.
So here’s a lesson, kids: if you’re jealous, just vent about it on Facebook and don’t shoot your friend.
