Gangs Rat Selves Out With Tweets of Blammers, Biscuits and Shellz
"Social media remains a double-edged sword in our crime fighting strategies," New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. "It is used by crew members to brag about past crimes, taunt rivals and incite violence. On the other hand we use social media to document past crimes and intercept new ones being talked about openly by crew members on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube."
Court records quoted one gang member on Facebook bragging, "I'm 2 Glocks strapped rolling down 112 Madison 116th this is the New Iraq." Said another on Twitter: "It start goin' off like its 4th of July."
"This is how people are communicating," Vance said. "It's no different whether it's talking about getting together on Saturday night or getting together on Saturday night to shoot somebody."
