Police ‘can trace posts’


Share post:

Social media can be good, but it can also be a dangerous medium, a Bridgetown magistrate declared on Thursday in a case involving teenage attackers.

And users have been warned that the police can trace those who post and repost offensive videos.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant made the comments in the District “A” Magistrates’ Courts yesterday as she dealt with a matter involving three teenaged girls that had its genesis in posts made on Instagram.

Shaniah Shanlea Neptune, 17, and Kelanah Shanean Neptune, 16, both of St Michael, admitted they assaulted Rickeisha McCollin occasioning her actual bodily harm on September 5. (HLE)
