Snapchat Arrest in Rhode Island

Central Falls youth, 16, arrested for threat to police posted on Snapchat

The Providence Journal reported that a Central Falls youngster was arrested for a Snapchat post. The social media giant claims to have over 4 billion video views per day.

The arrest highlights unforeseen issues that arise with the use of social media. In the heat of the post, both teenagers and adults, may not grasp that something said to a friend, versus something posted to the world, could have vastly different results and ramifications. In this instance the post led to an arrest and serious charges.
