It's the golden rule of Facebook (and every other social network): If you don't want your online activity to come back and bite you in the assets, don't post anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to see. And if grandma wears a badge and carries a gun, that rule goes double.

A story in Wednesday's New York Times adds more teeth to that truism. When investigating a crime, Facebook and Twitter are often the first places the cops look.

When 18-year-old Kayla Henriques fatally stabbed her 22-year-old BFF Kamisha Richards in the chest over a $20 loan, NYC police didn't have to look very hard for motive. It was all there in a message string on Facebook.

If you are in the midst of committing a felony, you may not want to tweet about it or update your status to reflect that. Just a thought. 37.gif

there doesn't seem to be any limit to stupidity...wtf lol.gif

"OMG LOLZ brkin into sum1s house!"

That might've been the Facebook status update left by Jonathan G. Parker, 19, as he was inside the Martinsburg, West Virginia house he was robbing. Yes, you read that right. Parker was inside the house, checked his Facebook profile, and left his account open on the victim's computer before fleeing.

Just...damn...


I learned in the third grade to never write something I don't want other people to read. I wasn't even the one that got busted. A classmate wrote a note to a friend and said something bad about the teacher. Of course, the note was intercepted by said teacher. Just watching this unfold taught me a valuable lesson.

Sorry JR, I don't think I will "friend" Kritterbox on FB. No offense meant at all. I friggin love this place. I also love my family staying the hell out of my business. I actually know every one of my FB friends in real life. No, I'm not one of those weirdos that trolls FB for every friend I can find. lol I am considering sending a link to my geologist buddy though. He doesn't do forums, so I'm not sure he will join. He stays pretty busy.

I sent him the link. I don't know if he will come by or not. Like I said, he stays pretty busy. He would fit right in though.

Let's just say, the NSA has listened in on MANY of our phone conversations.

Hell, they are probably watching me now.
