So let me get this right. Police were cruising MySpace (hmn.. sounds like they read my blog) and found the page of a teen that was from a local high school. On that page were photos of drugs, the teen with a gun in his hand, and some claims that he was a drug dealer.
First of all, let me ask you how they were able to determine that the page was created by, maintained and essentially owned by the teen. They can't you know. At most they can supena MySpace and perhaps get the pages email address registration but what does that proove exactly? How easy is it to spoof email?
Ok lets assume that the page belongs to the kid (though any half ass lawyer should be able to get the case thrown out right there). How is it that anyone can proove that the photos were genuine? The NBC10 page says : "there are pictures of ecstasy, marijuana-stuffed cigarettes and cocaine" . Uh really? How do they know that the cigarettes were stuffed with pot? How do they know the cocaine wasn't powder? I made a film in highschool called "Lower Marian Vice" that was a take off of the popular Miami Vice (this was the 80s) where we had guns, and drugs all over the place. Were they real drugs? Nope.. but you sure couldn't tell by looking at the film.
Ok, so assume that in some crazy world the pigs were able to determine that the photos were real. When did it become illegal to post photos of drugs on the internet? When did it become illegal to post photos of guns on the internet? The gun apparently was seized and legally belonged to the kids father... so how is that illegal?
Here is the kicker "The teen bragged that he was making $250,000 a year -- an unlikely claim, police said".. ahh.. so the kid was lying here and boasting to look cool. Who is to say that he wasn't boasting about the rest?
Anyway, here is what I have to say. Hello Philly cops!! Hello? I am a drug dealer. I make $500,000 a year selling extacy, cocaine and pot. I have a gun and I'm not afraid to use it. As proof, here are some actual photos :
