Police ‘can trace posts’

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.
