He deserved to die. I am relieved he is dead. But the celebratory, this-is-reason-for-a-party attitude I am seeing on my Facebook feed is making me feel ill.

I think that attitude as seen over Facebook has more to do with the medium than the people. How many people do you know who have typed "lol" while they don't actually laugh or even smile? It's hard to express emotion over the Internet, and, in addition, people tend to react more strongly/socially unacceptably over the Internet than other mediums (cf. the John Gabriel Greater Internet Fuckwad Theory).

I guess what I'm saying is that your Facebook friends may not be barbarians after all.
