Social Media Crime: Fugitive Posts Facebook Comment On His Wanted Poster


Crime Feed protip: Do not like, comment or share your own wanted poster on Facebook.

Like me, you probably eagerly await seeing who will comment your new Facebook photos. You also probably troll around for new pictures or mentions of yourself. It’s simply human nature. Don’t pretend you are above it.

This mild narcissism becomes problematic when the Sheriff posts your wanted poster on their Facebook page. They do not have a crush on you. They do not think your hair looks especially great. And they definitely have not noticed that you lost three pounds.

Not everyone understands these basic truths.

Meet Andrew Dale Marcum of Hamilton, Ohio. The not-so-social-savvy 21-year-old is accused of safe cracking, abduction, assault and domestic violence. Andrew noticed his wanted poster on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page and decided he needed to add his own caption. Andrew quipped, “I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me.” Embracing the digital age, the Butler County Sheriff’s Office chimed in, commenting, “Andrew Marcum – If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great.”

    Yah, I think the premise of Mike Judge’s ‘Idiocrasy’ is truly a statistical probability of a very high order, this fellow isn’t worth the price of the flesh he is printed on.
    The terrible force of entropy will continue to strip our species of rational intellect until we are mentally on par with the amoeba.
    I will be gone long before this becomes as firmly entrenched in the witness of what our habitation on this planet has accomplished with regard to global warming and the obvious problems of hunger, war, poverty, environmental pollution,,,,,you name a way to screw things up even worse and as a species we will break records to ensure that it will be so.
    I am no mental giant myself, but the erosion of the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physiological properties of our species is so obvious that you’d have to be stone cold dead not be able to read the writing on the wall. This fellow is not an aberation he is the future…………..
