Dumbest Facebook Post Ever? [Drunk teenager commits hit-and-run; posts it]
Shine from Yahoo! ^ | 1/4/13 | Beth Greenfield

Posted on 01/04/2013 1:46:58 PM PST by Slings and Arrows

An Oregon teenager has landed himself in the county jail for what must be one of the dumbest Facebook gaffes ever: posting about his drunk-driving hit-and-run escapade.

"Drivin drunk ... classsic ;) but to whoever's vehicle i hit i am sorry. :P" was the early-morning post that quickly led to the at-home arrest of Jacob Cox-Brown in the Oregon-coast city of Astoria, reports the Daily Astorian.

Upon reading Cox-Brown's post, two of the 18-year-old's Facebook friends contacted the Astoria Police Department to report it; it became vital information after two officers responded to a 1am report of a hit-and-run, which left a white Scion plus an adjacent vehicle damaged in their parking spots.

-snip-

Cox-Brown's Facebook page is filled with telling clues about the young man's penchant for both altered states and vehicles: His "favorites" include Mommy Needs a Beer and Lifted Trucks USA, while "smoking blunts" and "rolling Ford Rangers" are listed among his "activities."

Everyone has a right to be stupid, but I think this guy is abusing his right.

So should he unfriend them?

LOL! What a maroon. ;) He deserves what he gets.

Seriously, though; I have read that police and other authorities are looking through social media sites when they are investigating suspects in a crime.

“Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can’t help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.”

I’d be amazed if they weren’t. If you make a “Look at me!” web page, don’t be surprised if people look at it.

Admission of guilt is admission of guilt.

If they're that stupid to brag about it, they deserve what they get.

I’d have to say my local Amish Yutes who knocked over a 7-11 and then posted video of themselves on Facebook “making it rain”, leading to their arrest, still take the cake.

Can you sue for false arrest based on your own confession? Plenty of people confessed to crimes they didn’t commit before the internet, and many got arrested. Did any of them triumph in such a suit?

I think we have to make some allowances for someone who grew up with a name like that.

Not sure of the details however, if you tell a cop you were selling heroin yesterday, they can’t or shouldn’t be able to arrest or charge you.

So I’m thinking that the logic would apply if you admitted to a crime after the fact, even if that crime was much more serious.
