When you accomplish something, it’s natural to want to share it with friends and family. But as we’ve all learned from the past half-a-decade of using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat that there are some things that shouldn’t be shared. Unfortunately for the following criminals, they were clearly never warned about the downfalls of internet bragging, because they went ahead and bragged about their crimes on various social applications. DO YOU WANT TO GET ARRESTED? BECAUSE THIS IS HOW YOU GET ARRESTED.
