The Web Puts a Bite on Crime

When the 'Net first started, criminals from around the world used it to communicate, conspire and, sometimes, commit the crimes themselves.

Now the cops are fighting back, identifying criminals and gathering evidence from Web postings. Most times, the criminals are too dumb for their own good -- posing with weapons or stolen goods, or making detailed threats. The lesson here: Be careful of what you or your kids post. It may come back to bite you!
