tools for police
In the article I read a 16 year old student had posted pictures of himself online surrounded by guns on MySpace.com. MySpace usually a way for teens to talk to friends is now becoming evidence for police in court cases for terrorist threats and drugs. Police have saved lives like when they found 5 boys that were planning a school shooting. Civil libertarians are saying there is too much security. They also say having this kind of security is like shouting your personal information out in a pubic square. I think the police are doing the right thing by looking at pages because if people don't have anything to hide they should not worry. When civil libertarians say we don't know posting on these sites is like shouting in public I think it stupid if we cared that much we could start a petition or protest the police looking at peoples sites.
