We have come to expect people to do really stupid things and post it on social media. For some reason, people enjoy being ridiculed, being the center of attention or are just too messed up to realize what they are doing.
In a lot of cases, people share posts about their illegal activity and end up being arrested. The convicted felon posts a photo of him holding a gun. Another subject sets up a drug deal on social media and is surprised when the police show up. Illegal activity is posted online frequently.
We as law enforcement are not surprised by these types of incidents. We have come to expect them. Frankly, we have seen it all. However, a recent video posted on Periscope surprised even the most seasoned veteran.
