Authorities Use Social Networking Site to Track Down Dog Abuser
Now a days you can find almost anyone and everyone on some of the social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Idiots posting their exploits on Youtube have been tracked down and brought to justice and now a dog abuser has been tracked down so he can be brought to justice via Facebook.
Donnell Walters, 22, of Queens was wanted after a July 29th incident in which he brutally bashed Lucy, a 4 1/2 pound Yorkie and shattered her leg. Walters had gotten the dog for his boyfriend, 20-year-old Omar Koonce, as an engagement gift but during an argument outside their apartment, Walters grabbed the dog and smashed it against a stairwell.
Lucy had to undergo surgery to repair her shattered leg and is expected to make a full recovery but officials couldn’t find Walters. The ASPCA resorted to looking for the dog abuser on Facebook and eventually tracked him down. He was arrested on Friday and charged with felony animal abuse and criminal mischief.
I honestly think many people do not yet realize how wide-reaching the internet is and that, with some work and time, just about anyone who uses it, can be tracked down and tracked back to where they are. Social networking sites are all the rage and most people use them to keep in touch with friends and family, to share news, to network, but there are plenty of idiots out there who love to share their exploits, and think they are doing it anonymously. Take heed, anonymous is not as anonymous as most people think! Authorites are now using the internet and social networking sites to help them do their jobs. Sure, it may be a little “Big Brother” but for those of us who who have nothing to hide, no worries but for those idiots out there, beware!!
