‘Catch Me If You Can’ Continues to Be a Dumb Thing to Say to Cops on FacebookBy: Josh Wolford - February 19, 2014
I’m sure criminals have no desire to take any advice from me–but I’ll offer some anyway. Guys and gals (but mostly guys), you have to stop taunting police on Facebook.
The latest example of this comes from San Antonio, where a motorcyclist has been arrested after he posted a video of a dangerous, high-speed ride through traffic on Facebook.
Apparently, Alberto Rodriguez posted the clip with the caption “Catch Me If You Can.” Well, they can.
“Officers with the SAPD REACT Auto Theft Task Force followed a lead on a stolen motorcycle to a home in the 600 block of Karen Lane. Once there, they encountered Alberto Rodriguez, most recently seen posting a video titled ‘Catch Me If You Can…’ On his Facebook page. The stolen motorcycle was recovered as well. Rodriguez faces his currently outstanding felony warrants, a misdemeanor assault warrant, a possibly charges in connection with the stolen motorcycle,” said San Antonio Police on Facebook, complete with the hashtag #Arrested.
Before, I said that people have to stop doing this–I guess they don’t, really. It sure makes it easy on police. Because it happens all the time. Seriously. People taunt police on Facebook more than your optimistic view of humanity can most likely allow.
