Each week, Yobe leaves viewers shocked and often angry when they hear the stories that led convicted criminals to kill or hurt innocent people and this week was no different, in fact it left Twitter fuming.

Tweeps thought that the apology from the convict was not sincere and his sentence was too lenient.

The story was that Phineas killed his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend at the time, even after she got a protection order against him and they both moved on.

Phineas said he killed the boyfriend to get rid of "evidence".

Twitter was even more shocked when they found out that Phineas only received 18 years in prison for the double murder. Instead of the forgiveness and parole he was hoping to get, both the family and Twitter seemed unable to forgive him.

In fact, most viewers went on to tag the president and governing party on Twitter, asking for a harsher sentence for Phineas and many like him.
