And not just any photo, but a crime scene photo that he took, uploaded to Facebook page and even saved as the background image on his phone.  Maybe he was proud…maybe he was just stupid…either way, the cops had a pretty easy tim with this one and now have their man and the community will be a little safer.  Read the original story below.
