Phoenix police say a man was killed on New Year's Eve after being accidentally shot by his sister, who was playing with a gun while the two were posing for photos.
Judging by the previous photo to the right of now-deceased 22-year-old Manuel Ortiz, this situation is not incredibly hard to believe.
In fact, that's just one of several Facebook pictures involving Ortiz and guns willingly held to his own head.
In March, a Phoenix woman was accused of shoving a vibrator into her 2-year-old son's anus, and doctors told police that surgery would be required to remove it.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, 21-year-old Rickesha Burns called police reporting that her son was bleeding from his anus.
Burns said she didn't know what happened.
