Woman Arrested For Posting An Undercover Cop's Photo On Facebook

Melissa Walthall of Mesquite, Texas and her buddy George Pickens have both been charged with the egregious crime of "retaliation" after a Walthall posted the photo of an undercover police officer on Facebook. Not smart!

The Dallas Morning News reports that Walthall was upset that the undercover officer testified against Pickens in a drug case. How did she get her hands on the Facebook photo? It was already on Facebook! After the cop testified against him, Pickens went online, found the photo, and printed up stacks of flyers exposing the officer. According to the Morning News Walthall took a photo of one of the flyers, and posted it to her Facebook with the caption,

Anyone know this [expletive]?

No matter what that expletive was, identifying the undercover cop is apparently dangerous enough investigators found Walhall's post to be a a "viable threat to that officer's safety." Remember people: Lock down you Facebook and don't post anything stupid because it will get you in trouble! [CBS Houston and The Dallas Morning News]

    Is an undercover cop no longer undercover once they stand up and testify in court?

    Facebook... really is an idiot detector

      The internet is used for the powers that be to keep track of our every moves so that they can plan ahead of us. Literally everything we do on the internet is tracked, recorded, and stored in places such as the NSA Utah Data Center which is being currently built to keep track of all forms of communication used through technology. The only people who are "off the grid" are those whom use the "deep web", but if you're in the shallow web like 99.99% of the population then we're completely fucked.

        ....stored in a place currently being built? OK.......btw, know where I can get some tin foil hats cheap?

    I know someone who just got kicked out of school due to facebook commensts posted about other students. If you use FB, then be prepared to face the consequences.
