    Maxwell Marion Morton 16, is being charged as adult for the first degree muder of Ryan Mangan. They both attended Jeannette City School District, Pennslyvania. Atfer shooting Ryan in the face, Morton took a selfie with his body. Then he sent the picture to someone, whose mother sent to police.

    “(Police) received a copy of the photo which depicted the victim sitting in the chair with a gunshot wound to the face,” the affidavit states. “It also depicts a black male taking the ‘selfie' with his face facing the camera and the victim behind the actor. The photo had the name ‘Maxwell' across the top,” police said.

    The son of the woman who sent the photo further received messages from Morton that stated, “Told you I cleaned up the shells,” and “Ryan was not the last one,” according to the affidavit.

    There is so much to say about crimes like this, then again what can you say? Did the killer plan more killings? Did he think his friend would keep his secret? Did he have to imortalize this with a selfie? Did he just pick Ryan because he was a nice guy and an easy victim? So sad.

    What I wonder, is adult life so scary, bleak, and horrid that a young man would rather turn his life over to the state via murdering someone rather than finish growing up and start his adult life in his own way? If there is an ounce of truth in that question, then we are all vulnerable all the time. RIP, Mr. Mangan.

    Any protests for this horrific, disgusting, and senseless murder?

    Nah.

    Morton, used Snapchat, a smartphone application that allows users to send images that are deleted a few seconds after they’re received.
    He sent the image to a friend, who saved it on his phone before it was deleted, according to Fox News. The friend showed the photo to his mother, who turned the image over to police, according to Fox News.

    Pamela Rutledge, director of the Media Psychology Research Center says:
    “This is really a question about criminal pathology rather than technology,” she told the Tribune-Review. “Perpetrators in need of validating their power and sense of self-importance have used all kinds of communications to ‘brag’ about criminal activities — from the local hangout to social media like Facebook.”

    What would the protests be about? There's been an arrest and it seems a conviction is highly likely.

    I am gratified that the kid who got the snapchat copied it and gave it to his mother. This young man/woman knew the value of a life versus a code of silence. Thank goodness for him/her.

    Thank goodness the kid who got the snapchat thought quickly enough to save the image before it automatically deleted! Many people would be too shocked to think quickly and save such an awful image.

    ITA. Imagine, though, the horrible image that will now be ingrained in the memory of this young man and his mother. Considering some of Morton's statements, I'm sure the friend and his mother also saved other lives. Sounds like Morton did intend to go on a killing spree.

    Mangan's girlfriend said the alleged shooter, Maxwell Morton, 16, sent her a message on Facebook.

    "The night it happened, he messaged me and was just like, 'Yo.' The next day, I didn't read it until Thursday, and I was like, 'What's up?' He was like, 'Ryan got shot in the head. I'm sorry,'" said Brianna Kelly.

    "I want to know why they did it to him. Why they would leave his body for his mother to clean up. And then stand here, blatantly smile at a phone while somebody is in the background with a gunshot to their face?" said friend Joscelyn Elias.

    The killer is now saying it was an accident. I don't buy it. He brought the gun there. He is smiling in the photo with the body, no accident.

    Morton isn't some toddler who stumbled across an unlocked, loaded gun. I'm glad they're trying him as an adult. The shocking depravity of personalizing a selfie taken with another kid he just shot doesn't bode well for any hope of rehabilitating this criminal.
