The Nation's Most Trusted Bail Bond Agents

Bail Bonds, Social Media and Putting Yourself in Jail

Monday, April 15, 2013

exposureWanting to share photos with friends and family is a key driver of the success of social media.  It allows people to share images and memories with friends and family members that live on the other side of the country or that you might not see on a regular basis.  While we are sure, that everyone would agree with this concept, the reality of social media sites like Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and Twitter is that a lot of time goes into posting things and very little time goes in to thinking about it.

This past weekend in Manhattan, a “massive and dangerous” drug ring was busted and put out of business.  The accused ring leaders were having such a good time at a local Queens strip club that they decided to post pictures and videos of themselves bragging about their business and success all over the internet.  The problem with that…they posted pictures and videos of them all over the internet…and who looks at the internet besides the friends of accused drug dealers…law enforcement.

As you can imagine, the drug ring was taken down and 41 people were arrested.  We aren’t sure about the bail bond amounts being set, but it looks like those involved will probably think twice before posting things and exposing themselves on Facebook.  Read the original story below.
