Aside from the fact that Facebook and other social networking sites are good in sharing stuff like cute kittens and funny articles, cops over at New York City think these portals are also the best place to hunt bad guys.
According to reports, from 2008 to present, more and more criminals were busted after checking out these social networking wonders. Newser calls these criminals “dumb” because after victimizing innocent civilians in the metro, they brag on Facebook or Myspace.
One of the best example of a “dumb” criminal is James Roberts. After doing a holdup, Roberts allegedly posted pictures on hisMyspace page with his new ill-gotten gain, which included an expensive watch and ring.
