Gawker – Taunting police on Facebook when they’re out searching for you is, admittedly, pretty funny. But if you’re going to do it, it’s important that you not get caught. Otherwise you end up like recently-apprehended fugitive Victor Burgos: In jail, and looking really dumb.
Burgos was wanted on domestic violence and harassment warrants in Utica, N.Y. when he posted a “video showing him walking into an unidentified NYPD stationhouse,” writing “Catch me if you can, I’m in Brooklyn.” So… they did. U.S. Marshals and NYPD arrested Burgos in a Brooklyn apartment, catching him, not coincidentally, at his laptop dicking around on Facebook. He’s now awaiting a hearing in Oneida County. And he deleted the posts from his Facebook account.
This guy is hilarious. Why in hell would you tempt the cops to come and get you, while providing them with your location? I hope he’s aware that you can’t use Facebook while in prison, since he seems to be quite enthralled with the website.
