Maryland cops to tweet about a sting

  • Cops in Maryland who are tackling with prostitution are going to live-tweet their sting operation. "We won't tell you when or where, other than that it's somewhere in the country next week." a blog post from the police department reads. 

    The department's Twitter feed will also include names and photos of those taken into custody. The department thinks it's a good idea but an Internet expert called it a "barbaric punishment"

    "I'm hoping that they will change their mind," she told Wire. "It's chilling and disgusting and they should really consider the damages to the victims."
