Man tries to shoot wife over Facebook addiction

Written by

Merry Christmas honey, pass the Pabst Blue Ribbon

51-year-old Harry Hibbs Jr. of Washington County was jailed on attempted homicide, assault and reckless endangerment charges after he tried to shoot his wife on Christmas Eve.

The reason? Well, Hibbs was apparently slightly miffed that his wife, Anna Hibbs, was spending way too much on Facebook, so he put a gun to her head and pulled the trigger. Luckily, his gun maintenance skills seem to be on par with his social skills, so the gun jammed.

He then proceeded to hit his wife in the face with the broken gun, all in plain view of the couple's two children. After receiving reports of a domestic disturbance, police rushed to the scene only to find Hobbs leaving the family trailer with a rifle. He was disarmed and taken into custody without incident.

Hibbs later told police that he was “tired of his wife being on Facebook” and fed up with everything. Police confiscated several guns following a search of his trailer. It’s not clear whether they were jammed as well.

I feel his pain, their are quite a few people who I personally know and who are on my FB list that are addicted as well. I fail to see what is so great about facebook, and farmville, gimme a fcuking break, it's scary what most people consider video games these days.

Sorry, there's no excuse for pulling out a gun to deal with family disputes and anger management issues. He should never be allowed to own or access any guns or ammunition ever again in his life.

He's extremely lucky the gun jammed, otherwise he'd be a murderer - the wife and kids are lucky too. With a husband like that, why wouldn't you spend all your time with your true friends on Facebook?

lol as I'm reading this I'm imagining that the rifle was like his 3.rd or attempt because all his guns are jamming.

But all the kidding aside, I feel bad for the wife and the kids, they're all scared for life, it's insane to imagine someone doing this because of facebook. I have my own issues with people who are constantly on facebook, but damn I wouldn't get violent about it.
