Teen gets away with using Facebook status as a rock solid alibiMikey 6 comments
It turns out that Facebook has at least one more use - saving your arse from jail.
Nineteen year old Rodney Bradford, arrested on suspicion of commuting 2 crimes, has had his by his Facebook status "Where's my pancakes?"
According to a company that performed the investigation, at the same time the crime took place someone used Rodney's Facebook credentials to login to the social networking site, and that person could only have been Rodney.
Before I continue, let me state that I'm not arguing the teenagers guilt or innocence. I am however stating the absurdness of claiming that Facebook accounts can only be logged in by the account holder.
Lawyers from both sides don't agree with my line of thinking though, and say that this sort of action "implies a level of criminal genius that you would not expect from a young boy like this; he is not Dr. Evil"
Just so there isn't any misunderstanding - a Facebook status update constitutes a rock solid alibi.
There you kids. Creating your alibi is as easy as giving your friend access to you Facebook account and posting a random status update at the time you do the crime. Or if you don't have a real friend, you could remote desktop into your home PC and update your status from the crime scene.
