Seriously? (Via Facebook)

If we get to pick how our tax dollars are spent on law enforcement, let's make sure we throw a lot of money toward whomever's running the police's Facebook presence. Thanks to oversharing, perps are just going ahead and letting cops find them with as little effort as it takes to click a Like button. Nope, this isn't the first time.

While not original, Anthony James Lescowitch might be the most egregious example of a criminal brought to justice via Facebook idiocy. It started when the Freeland, PA police department posted a "Wanted" post about Lescowitch on Facebook.

For whatever reason, when Lescowitch saw he was being sought by the cops for aggravated assault, he decided to help them out by spreading the word amongst his friends and family members with a share on his own Facebook feed.


Leeann likes bad boys.

Being a good citizen, Lescowitch must have figured if anyone knows where he might be, his Faceook friends would. Who says criminals can't be helpful?

What makes this story stand out is Lescowitch's share wasn't the only stupid social media move he made yesterday. He might not even have been arrested had he not gone one step further and pulled the dumbest Facebook mistake known to man: He believed that an unknown hot girl messaging him out of nowhere was for real.
