More Fun With FaceBook


Here, are two recently reported stories highlighting the vagaries of FaceBook and other such social media outlets.

First, enter Dana Thornton. Apparently, she was not fond of her ex-boyfriend and decided to create a FaceBook page for him. She is accused of creating a fake profile of her ex-boyfriend, a Parsippany, New Jersey narcotics detective, where she allegedly posted comments that, “I’m a sick piece of scum with a gun” and “I’m an undercover narcotics detective that gets high every day.” This is where it gets disturbing — she purportedly faces up to 18 months in prison for identity theft. Clearly, she stepped over the line; but at a certain point, common sense should kick in. If she blew his cover and put him in danger, I could understand. But, here, we have a civil — not a criminal –issue. Sue her for defamation or, better yet, move on.
