There certainly have been a lot of cases lately where some idiotic criminals videotaped their own crimes and put them on YouTube. For some reason, though, this has people thinking that somehow YouTube is to blame. However, even the police seem to recognize that the opposite is true. If anything, stupid criminals putting their own evidence on YouTube makes it so much easier to catch and prosecute the criminals. But, don't tell that to Congressional Representative Mario Diaz-Balart, who is proposing a bill that would push for stiffer penalties against criminals who put their videos on sites like YouTube. In other words, for handing over the evidence to help law enforcement prosecute them, they deserve harsher punishment.
