Another Reason Facebook is Evil

March 25, 2009

Meet Indiana state trooper Chris Pestow. Pestow has a Facebook page and loaded the following photos on it. He seems to have an interesting life and no doubt wants to share it will all of the fans of state troopers out there. All was right with the world and then something changed. See if you can figure out where things went wrong:


So far, so good. A fine looking officer. All serious and professional looking.


Here is Chris’ buddy, Officer Andrew Deddish. Seems like a nice enough guy. Looks like an awkward stance, however. Wait…what is he holding in his hand?


Oops. This one is not going to go over so well. Something about one cop holding a gun to another cops head (while holding a beverage) that could potentially get someone in trouble. In this case, it is both of these fine officers.

Deddish is on the hook for pointing the gun. Apparently, there is some sort of rule against this. Chris is in trouble for “Facebooking” while he was at work. He has several entries timed and dated when he was on duty. I guess they expect troopers not to have a social life. What can it hurt to tell a few jokes on Facebook while you are in the middle of a high speed pursuit?

I think the punishment, if they are guilty, should be ordering them to write  daily blogs. Then they would see what real pressure is. Before you know it they will be making up fake medical conditions or “new” products for consumers to use. Who knows what depths you they will be forced to sink to. (Can I just say, unless you are Hunter S Thompson, the gun is probably a bit much).

So let me say again for the umpteenth time…stop with the Twittering and Facebook! You are dying a slow and painful death. Get away from your computer and enjoy your life! It’s too late for me and some of the others around here but we had our chances. But this damned narcotic known as “blogging” is just too strong. Every time I think I am out, it pulls me back in. Don’t be your keyboards bitch. (Mine looks like Lynda Carter so it is easier for me to take).

Good luck on your Facebook pages fellas. Something tells me you might have a surplus of free time soon. Maybe you could start a blog? There is always room here in hell on the Internet.
