I don’t know how many times I have to tell folks that the FBI and police stations are watching all these social media pages, especially Facebook. So many people have gotten caught up in criminal activities and busted for trafficking, drugs, etc.
Next up is
dummy Don Juan, Christopher Robinson, 23-year-old deadbeat dad of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I’m sure ole Chris didn’t think him posted a pic of him laying around with a few $20 bills (a $10 and a $5 as well) would get him caught up after running from paying $150/mo in child support for the last three years. Welp, think again.
Apparently Mr. Robinson thought it would be cool to show off his lil’ income tax money, but I’m sure he didn’t think it was funny when Milwaukee Country District Attorney’s office came knocking at his door bout all the money and liquor bottle pics he was posting on his Facebook page.
According to Good Morning America:
Christopher Robinson, 23, is facing three felony counts of failure to support his 3-year-old child, according to a complaint filed with the criminal division of the Wisconsin Circuit Court.
The complaint indicates that for three years, Robinson never made any of the required $150 monthlychild support payments.
But pictures that Robinson posted to Facebook that show him posing with cash and bottles of liquor helped the district attorney’s office build a case against him.
Milwaukee County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern went on to say:
What we do in these types of cases is we try to find out from other family members whether there is other information we may not be able to know about.
Loven also was sure to inform that Facebook is an investigative tool:
Facebook has become a repository for information that we may not … know about.
It is an investigative tool,” Lovern said of Facebook. “It can be effective in assisting in the investigation and prosecution of certain criminal targets.
Plus, a representative for Facebook also stated:
We work with law enforcement to the extent required by law, and as needed to keep the site and those who use it safe. Facebook devotes significant resources to evaluating requests for user information, and adheres to the letter of these laws when responding to requests for information.
I know this is VERY true because I was working with a network marketing company a while back and got my Facebook account locked because I inboxed too many links to my website to too many people. In order to get my account back, they asked me to verify some security questions. To my surprise, the security question was the last six digits of my drivers license number. **blank stare** After I entered it, my account was reinstated. Facebook and the police ain’t playin’ with y’all fools…!!!
