Does posting about how twitter increases police vulnerability via twitter also increase police vulnerability?

by wfgodbold

I do kind of see their point; officers and agents might be more at risk (especially if they’re undercover) because of facebook and twitter accounts.

Working as a policeman is not a safe job.

Just like how the guy who live-tweeted the Osama bin Laden mission could have affected its result, so social networking can affect the results of various operations/investigations SWAT teams and the police are working on; that doesn’t meant that the government should be able to restrict freedom of speech.

If we were to ban things because something bad might happen, I don’t know where we’d be!

Why, you might end up throwing a guy in jail because you were afraid someone who saw what he was going to do would riot!

D’oh.
