Nearly 50 Brooklyn gang members were arrested after they shared too much of their violent activity on Facebook.
The gangsters indicted are known to be members of two rival New York gangs, the Rockstarz and the Very Crispy Gangsters.
Police found that the gang members began adding their enemies as friends on Facebook and placed threatening messages on their rivals’ walls. Some of them even posted pictures in front of their rival gang members’ homes.
“Because of these individuals’ insatiable desire to brag about what they did, these investigators were able to draw a virtual map of their activities and bring them to justice,” said New York City Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly.
