    Bank Robbery Suspect Caught Because of Facebook Selfie

    The FBI apprehended an alleged Michigan bank robber this week because of a photo he posted to his Facebook page of himself posing with a sub machine gun that was brandished during a recent bank hold-up.

    According to investigators, alleged bank robber 21-year-old Jules Bahler robbed three banks over an eight-day period, ending with a robbery in Pontiac, Michigan, last Wednesday.

    However, the alleged robber soon posted pictures of himself with "what appeared to be a sub machine gun and wearing clothes matching those used in the aforementioned bank robberies," according to a police sergeant investigating the case.

    Bahler also bragged about his new-found income in the picture's caption, writing "Bought my first house and chopper today... life is great." One of Bahler's friends even commented on the photo, warning him, "U tripping brotha I wouldn't show that shit off like that cops be watching this shit brotha."

    The police turned the evidence over to the FBI, who promptly arrested Bahler.

    As law enforcement becomes more and more active on social media, criminals are quickly learning that discussing their crimes online can prove to be an easy downfall.

    However, even law-abiding citizens can learn a lesson from this boneheaded bragging: be thoughtful about what you post on Facebook, because you never know who might see it or how it might live on.

    No trigger discipline either.

    Delete the link to his Facebook. Private information should not be shared even if you are a criminal.

    In this case I don't think it is private information as it is in the Public domain.

    Also I think he lost his right to privacy as soon as he posted the selfies.

    The guy calls himself "King Romeo" I bet he finds his Juliet in prison.

    It´s beyond my mind how obvious some gangsters incriminate themselves

    I think its not just plain stupidity (even stupid people know what is likely about to happen if you post stuff like this), but how one´s image is more important for some people than the risk of getting caught. It´s like they dont give a f* if they go to jail for 25 to life or not.

    It is not hard to locate somebody's address if you have his/her Facebook. There are people who could go and shoot him in the face for example.

    I will not stop amaze how stupid are some people.

    We all complain about a lack of privacy and how our rights are ignored by secret services and about "Big Brother" conspiracy and at the end we go to Facebook and post status about what we are doing, "check-in places", post photos....

    At this moment I think that "the guys" are watching facebook more than listing to our phones.
