9 Strange Facebook-Related Crimes

One of my high school teachers once told our class, "if you're going to be stupid enough to do something illegal, at least don't be stupid enough to put it on camera." That was before the days of Facebook and YouTube, but it seems like the best advice you can give people these days is what my teacher said, followed by "and if you're stupid enough to put it on camera, for the love of God, don't be stupid enough to upload it on to the internet."

Vanessa Starr Palm and Alexander Daniel Rust certainly wish they got this advice and heeded it before they visited the Bahamas, killed an endangered lizard, ate it, documented the whole thing with photos and then uploaded the images onto Facebook.

The couple has been charged with violating an animal protection act and may also face additional charges for breaking a U.S. law that bans committing a crime in a country with a relationship to the U.S.
