Cold-Hearted Facebook: No Way to Behave

cold hearted Facebook

If you really think about it, one of the main outcomes of social media is that people now have a forum for sharing every little personal detail about themselves and their lives.  From what they ate for breakfast to pictures of their kids first day back at school, we are all quickly becoming open books for all too see and hear.  Now don’t get us wrong, sharing these things (in moderation of course) can be a good thing…it has definitely given us some good stuff for this bail bond blog.  We know many people who use social media to stay connected to friends and family that live in other states (but those people know how to set up their security and sharing settings).  It is the people that feel the need to share everything with everyone (whether on purpose or by accident) that seem to get themselves into the most trouble.  Just ask the Ohio woman who shared something so horrible that she ended up in jail.

According to the news story, the woman drove her car into three teenagers last December.  Instead of getting out to check on them, she instead took off (she later told the judge that she felt unsafe in that neighborhood and didn’t want to get out of her car...geez, imagine how unsafe the three girls she just hit with her car felt).  Anyway, hitting the three girls is pretty bad, but driving off without checking on them is even worse.  But the sad thing is it actually gets worse.  This woman went home and then bragged about her hit and run on Facebook.  She was sentenced to 90 days in jail and her license was suspended. Read the original story below.
