According to a recent report on, this point was made clear recently to a group of teenage girls in New York, who apparently videotaped themselves confronting a younger girl, and then slapping and kicking the girl in the head and body. The girls then apparently posted the video footage of the beating on YouTube. After police discovered the video, the girls were all arrested and charged with attempted assault. It is amazing how many cases we see here at Wallin & Klarich were people would not have been prosecuted for committing crimes had they not either bragged about them on a blog or MySpace page, or posted videotape of themselves committing the crime on an Internet site such as YouTube. Of course, it is far better to not commit a crime in the first place, however, if you have done something that could expose you to arrest, posting evidence of your activities on the Internet is probably one of the worst things you can do.
