On Monday night, 19-year-old Monilisa Perez was arrested for shooting her boyfriend to death in attempt to get a bunch of YouTube views for her page.

Monilisa and her boyfriend, Pedro Ruiz started a YouTube page back in March where they posted videos of pranks and stunts etc. Perez is 20 weeks pregnant with their baby, so, obviously the best thing to do when expecting a child is to stage a prank that involves using a book as a bulletproof vest for a YouTube video.

After blowing a hole in her lover, She called 911.  When police arrived, they tried to save him but he died at the scene. According to the story Perez told the police, Ruiz came up with the idea of trying to stop a bullet with a book, to which she initially declined, so he showed her a different book with a bullet hole that didn’t go all the way through. Apparently, that was all the convincing she needed, so she grabbed a fucking .50 CALIBER DESERT EAGLE and shot the father of her unborn child from ONE FUCKING FOOT AWAY! That was the weapon of choice. A gun that would blow a hole through a brick wall like it was styrofoam. That’s like Using a pancake spatula to stop a runaway cement truck. The crime scene must have been a mess, because a Desert Eagle is basically a fucking cannon.

Perez was charged with second degree manslaughter, and could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $20,000. Which is kind of weird. I don’t get the fine thing. Why does the government need to make a profit off shit like this? How does that help the family of the victim? I digress. Look, I know this is a sad story. Baby born in prison, without a father, and will be without a mother as well for at least the first 10 years of its life. All for a stupid prank video. That sucks for everyone involved and the person mostly to blame happens to be the victim. But this was an epically terrible idea. One minute of research would have told them that. One google search about what a .50 caliber Desert Eagle can do. Maybe instead of using the book as a shield, they should have read it. People who read books don’t do retarded shit like this.
