07 Mar Think Before You Post on Social Media
Social media has aided the police in making arrests. Do not put yourself in a position to be one of these people. You could post something where you think, “I can’t get in trouble for posting this.” You could have posted a photo of you staring at a breathtaking view, but to get to that view, you had to trespass onto private property. Posting this photo may not resonate as a risk to you because so many people before you have done it. Plus, the police have more pressing matters to attend to, right?
Believe it or not, the police are growing departments that are dedicated to filtering through social media.
Yes, they are looking for content like threats or evidence for an existing case, but they may happen upon an otherwise harmless post, like your beautiful Instagram photo, and they can take this up with you.
Additionally, you may never know what the public will say. Your content can go viral enough where the police feel the need to intervene and address the matter.
You may not have done any harm and you may not be a threat to other people, but trespassing is illegal and it most definitely can get you into some form of legal trouble. That is why we are telling you to always be mindful about what you post on social media.
