(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) -Is society talking about death too casually?
Just hours before her mother, Rachelle Grimmer, shot her and her 10-year-old brother, Ramie Marie Grimmer posted “may die 2day” as her Facebook status.
Rachelle, who was angry she could not receive food stamps, shot her children and herself after a seven-hour standoff with police.
According to MSNBC, Ramie updated her facebook regularly during that time—”May die 2day” was posted at 7:50 PM, and she even tagged her location as Laredo, Texas.
Although authorities understood the conditions of the situation, and even despite Ramie’s reach out on Facebook, no one stepped in to retrieve the children; shots were fired around 11:45 PM and Ramie was killed anyway.
