Greece tragedy as great as Roman Soldier killing Archimedes - Bakari Henderson was Archimedes - Again reborn -- A Selfie will get you Killed

WEST SACRAMENTO CA (IFS) -- For this crazy act of violent from a people that are revered around the world just breaks this writers heart.  A dear friend of mind from North Carolina travels to Greece several times a year, and she is a teacher.

The young lady in questioned must be the most beautiful and loving person in the world --to be branded for a death of another person over a "selfie". Out of the ten persons that participated in this crime, didn't anyone, just anyone of them try to stop it, or even raised their voice?

This Greece tragedy is as great as the Roman Soldier that killed Archimedes.  This selfish act robbed the world of a great mind full of new ideas to each and everyone of us.

Bakari Henderson was Archimedes - Again reborn.  If only just one voice in the crowd would have stood up and shouted -- our world would be totally different now and in the future and yet again we steal from ourselves over a picture.  Sounds familiar? -khs

An argument over a selfie may have led to the death of a 22-year-old American in Greece.

Bakari Henderson was killed after a fight broke out early Friday. Witnesses say he and his friends wanted to take a photo with the waitress, which angered one of the bouncers. It happened on the Greek Island of Zakynthos, a popular destination for tourists,CBS News correspondent Tony Dokoupil reports

Police say at least 10 people followed Henderson out of the bar, including the bouncer and another employee. They are accused of beating Henderson and leaving him unconscious in the street.

Eight people have been arrested and are now facing voluntary manslaughter charges. The suspects, including the bouncer and bar employee, covered their heads as they made their way into court.

One of their attorneys argued there was no intent to kill Henderson, who Greek police say died from severe head injuries after the beating.

"I coudn't believe it," Astrid Von Ehren-McCray, family friend said. " And I'm trying to compose myself, but I couldnt' believe it."

The news is still sinking in at the McCray household in Austin, Texas. Family friends say Henderson spent a lot of time there growing up.
