Isn’t it funny how people who do wrong or know the person who did a dirty deed don’t want to snitch or tell on the person who did it? Allegedly no one wants to be the rat especially when the activity is illegal. So why is it these dummies put their dirty deeds on twitter, YouTube and Facebook? I just don’t get it.

Not too long ago a young criminal was seen holding two guns on one of the social media sites. He had recently committed a crime. It didn’t take the police long to find him. He snitched on himself. The same thing happened when some kids robbed a bank. They got on social media and bragged about it, even showed the stolen money. Did they really think that only their circle of friends could see that?

Most recently a group of hooligans broke into the vacation home of Brian Holloway, a five-time All-Pro offensive lineman with New England and the Oakland Raiders.

Reportedly he is now using social media to assemble a list of the remorseless revelers who trespassed on his 200-acre property—and inflicted more than $20,000 in damage. “The list of damage was unbelievable and is growing,” Holloway wrote in an Internet posting about tracking down the punks who smashed 10 windows and glass doors, urinated on carpets and punched holes in ceilings. “It’s being turned over to the sheriff’s department to assist them to verify and identify the facts,” he said.

No arrests have been made, although some brazen partiers spray-painted their names on the walls and others sent tweets about the blowout using their real names and photos. One knucklehead said he was glad his parents did not give an F about what he did and what a great way this was to end the summer. They also stated that if you weren’t there you missed a great throw down. It was not immediately clear how Holloway’s vacation residence in the Taconic Mountains was targeted for the home invasion. But tweets collected by Holloway showed people were promoting the illicit party a full five days before the drunken destruction of Aug. 31.

Holloway was at his home in Lutz, Fla., when he learned of the damage at his sprawling home. His 19-year-old son spotted Twitter reports about the bash at the house in Stephentown, near the Massachusetts border. A stunned Holloway was soon staring at a series of mind-blowing pictures—a young man clutching a drink and strolling across his kitchen table. Three kids partying in his bathroom, a boozy couple dancing and carousing. “We couldn’t believe what was going down,” Holloway recounted. The table holding the drunken teen was purchased with money from the lineman’s Super Bowl share.

State troopers responded to the home, but the teens managed to flee without any arrests made. “Busted or not, it was still the best party in the 518 (area code) of the summer,” tweeted one reveler. As you see you really don’t need a snitch, you are the snitch, just put it on Youtube or twitter, case closed.
