Technology Catches Up with Criminal

Every day, most people jump on a computer, take a picture with their phones, email their friends, and post on their Facebook.  What many people may not know is that their posts, their videos, and their physical location can be tracked, backtracked, calculated, positioned, uploaded, downloaded, and more.  Here, a motorcyclist committed aggravated fleeing and eluding a police, all the while videoing the chase, which he later posted this video on YouTube.  In addition, he was wearing an electronic ankle bracelet ordered by the court.  With simple subpoenas and technology experts, based upon the data from his electronic bracelet and the video he posted, the State proved the defendant's guilt.  With so much information sharing and electronic lack of privacy today, people must be cautious in their posts, tweets, emails, and Facebook uploads.  Even if people are not committing a crime (and don't want to get caught), they should still be aware of the risks of 'sharing' in today's day and age.
