Kids sure are getting crazy at good ol’ Purdue. Nothing like getting pinched for a crime because you gave too much or your personal information awa to facebook. The authorities now have caught the bad guys through both MySpace and Facebook social networks.
The arrest of a Purdue University student with the help of Facebook.com, a popular student directory on the Internet, is one of the latest instances of police using such Web sites to aid their investigations.
On Saturday, officers took Justin J. Vorbroker, 20, into custody after he was alleged to have threatened another student with a pocket knife. That incident comes close in time to one in which police in Boulder, Colo., arrested six men in connection to a rape and robbery after finding their photographs on MySpace, another popular Web site.
