An anonymous reader writes: According to Indybay, Police are using myspace in a hip new way, to send off to your employers after you have been arrested. The Article states
"They had tracked down the website for my band, followed a link to our myspace page, and from there tracked down my personal myspace page. In my profile I had some pretty cheeky anti-authoritarian hyperbole and that was quoted in the report. "Subject says in his myspace profile that he is 'looking for someone to turn over and burn police cars with,'" a dumb comment that had been part of my online profile for many years. There was a print out of my entire myspace profile, band website, etc. All of this info had been passed on to my employer."
I have heard of employers checking up on employees through myspace and facebook, but could we be going into a new era where cops not only charge you with a crime but taddle on you to your employer?
I'm not sure the legality of all of this.
