All Crime Is Personal

Here’s something we haven’t talked about in a while, school employees getting into trouble with underage students on Snapchat. For some reason, Snapchat seems to be the go-to social media platform that school employees use to try to get into the pants of their students for lack of a better term. One such school employee …

It seems the Facebook vigilantes have graduated from Facebook itself to being vigilantes in meatspace.

Once again, the idiots of Facebook worked collectively to try to ruin a man’s life just by resharing a post that had absolutely no evidence or truth behind it. A man in Liberal, Kansas, which I understand is not very liberal, was accused of sex trafficking in a Facebook post that took off like wildfire. …

Just because it’s been months since I posted a story about Kik doesn’t mean all their predators have been inactive. For example, 33-year-old Christopher Goodin of Elyria, Ohio, is accused of allegedly posing as a 12-year-old girl and the fake girl’s abusive bully in order to extort nudes from a 12-year-old girl over the mobile …
