So lets use their tactics against them as well! I say we all become a gang! Who’s in? I have feeling the gangs they are targeting are Conservatives.
I wonder if they are profiling who they ask to join?
This is so weird. I am having a hard time picturing gang bangers sitting around on FB networking. I mean its just so...........
Unfortunately, not weird.
Sometimes researching jihadis online you find gang bangers in their “favorites” links and vice versa.
Anyway, exchange bad words, their latest squeeze, their latest threats and oh yeah, a lot of hand signals and hip hop/rap music.
MySpace I can understand. But FB???? FB is so...well...bland.
OOooooohhhhh! That’s even more scary!!
Hunt the thug pukes down and observe the pink mist after the proper lead placement in the cranial vault.
This is a good thing for LE intelligence gathering. Everything the perps do on those sites is logged, archived, and traceable back to somebody’s PC.
The login records can also pin suspects down to a specific location at a specific time, so you can see who stepped away from the computer to whack a rival.
