Catching a case.
Oh, snaps. Looks like homeboy caught a case big time. $15,000! Ouch. I feel for the dude. But on the other hand, people have got to realize that all this social networking is bound to come back and bite us on the @$$.
The po-po aren't complete fools. I know someone who worked for the sheriff's department and they routinely check on people's online activity when they try to apply for some sort of law enforcement position. And believe me, tagging on the walls is nothing compared to some of the sick things people are into these days then they still choose to share it with the world.
If its a criminal activity, isn't it common sense to watch your back and not broadcast it online? Sure, there are other fish to fry...but you just never know. I know a graffiti artist who is very active in the graffiti community so he posts pictures of his artwork on various sites. But he always, always obscures his face in some way. Sure, his name is out there, but you can't tie his face with the name. I asked him about it once and he said, I just gotta keep it low profile. You just never know.
He should tell that to all the stupid adolescent boys on myspace who create albums full of their crappy little tags.
