9 weirdest facebook related crimes

Facebook Privacy

Here are 9 weirdest facebook related crimes around the world. There  are many anti-social elements that have made Facebook a breeding ground of terrorism, sheer fun and pleasure and scams among others.  The complaints have been made on matters such as terrorism, deaths,  scams, non-parliamentary offences, hate crimes and malicious messages that are related to the site.

9. The woman who was convicted for decapitating a mouse and posting the footage on Facebook

Naomi Anderson, 23, pleaded guilty to one charge of animal cruelty in the Caboolture Magistrates Court, north of Brisbane, in July 2011.

Bizarre Facebook Related Crimes

The man who got arrested for pretending to be a Moroccan prince on Facebook

In the U.S., pretending to be a celebrity online is something of a trend. There's a whole slew of fake celebrity blogs out there. Search Facebook or MySpace and you'll find dozens pages supposedly opened by Tom Cruise or Katie Holmes -- all fake. 

The Moroccan government, though, apparently isn't quite hip with this trend, and in 2008 arrested a man for creating a Facebook profile under the guise of the brother of King Mohammed VI.

The man, 26-year-old Fouad Mourtada, was arrested and charged with "villainous practices," a very dire and vague sounding offense. At this point, it's unknown just what he said on the fake profile and whether his intents were malicious or satirical, but it's safe to say that whatever he was doing with the fake Facebook identity wasn't terribly amusing to the Moroccan government.

7  The emergency worker who got 4 years in jail for posting crime scene photos on Facebook

A former emergency medical technician from Staten Island is in hot water for taking a photo of a strangled murder victim in March and posting it on his Facebook page.

Victim Leslie Cote wants her identity revealed to draw attention to cyber bullying.

Two preteen US girls accused of hacking into a classmate's Facebook page and posting sexually explicit photos and messages have been charged with cyberstalking and first-degree computer trespassing.

The girls, ages 11 and 12, have been under investigation since the alleged victim's family contacted Issaquah police. The two defendants used the victim's password information to post sexually explicit content on her Facebook page. They also posted messages that indicated the victim was willing to perform sex acts on people.

The case has resulted in criminal charges filed against the 2 girls

Vanessa Starr Palm, 23, of Illinois and Alexander Daniel Rust, 24, of Indiana, were arrested last Monday after pictures of the two having an iguana feast in the islands were posted on the social networking website. 

Police got hold of photos showing the suspects catching an iguana, parts of an iguana on a grill, two men eating the iguana pieces, and a man and a woman cleaning what appears to be undersized conch," according to police. 

The iguanas are protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

Blurring the lines between virtual and reality, Shannon Jackson of Tennessee broke the law when she poked a contact on her Facebook list, by violating a restraining order.

In July, a 20-year-old woman who had accused Adams of raping her after a party called police to point out a posting on his Facebook page offering $500 for "a girls head." In a later posting, police say Adams said "he needed this girl knocked off right now."
