Power to the people

Another criminal has been caught with the power of social media. A teenager in London was filmed driving around 220 k/ph with the footage being uploaded onto YouTube – by himself.

The 19-year-old teenager, driving a Ford Escort, was driving on the A76 single-carriageway road in southwest Scotland with his behaviour being described by Sergeant Scott McLachlan, from the Roads Policing Unit at Dumfries and Galloway police, as “completely foolish behaviour.”

This is similar in some ways to the New Zealander who was identified on Google-owned YouTube stealing a laptop from a computer store.
