MySpace Just As Good As Facebook For Catching Dumb Kids
from the the-cops-have-the-internet-too dept
Facebook is growing as a law enforcement tool, particularly at colleges and universities, where administrators and police use it to keep tabs on students' misbehavior (inevitably followed by retaliatory pranks). MySpace is in on the act now, too, after police near Boston used it to track down some graffiti artists. The kids -- who maybe got exposed to too many fumes -- had helpfully uploaded pictures of their work and their tags to the site in a group called "Graffiti Artists". MySpace has taken the blame before for stupid kids, but it sounds like these mental giants figured out how to get caught all on their own.
