Just think of all the stupid shit you did in your teens and even twenties and imagine it documented for your kids. Oy Vey! Like when I was in HS and my friend convinced me it would be kewl to take 5 tabs of window pane. If I did that now I’d be spewing out my trip on FB…
Calling someone ‘creep of the week’ implies he is definitively guilty of, at the least, being a creep, whereas saying someone is ‘wanted for’ something only implies that there’s a warrant out or whatever. So calling someone a ‘creep’ could be considered both both libel (or is it slander?) and an attempt to bias the jury pool.
Also, why would the sheriff’s office tell him to stop talking about it on their FB page? Wouldn’t they WANT to gather evidence?
Even if this guy (and all of the OTHER Creeps of the Week that have been branded as such on that Facebook page) were to have a decent lawyer and attempt to have the case thrown out, he’s still working within the constraints of the Alabama judicial system, isn’t he?
Alabama has the same general judicial system as the rest of the US. Rape accusations are often false, but not usually rape by force accusations as physical evidence is necessary for those, not just he said she said. Finally, people who have outstanding warrants ARE guilty of being creeps, so it’s definitely not slander or libel.
I’m with iceroyalty1984 on this one; fleeing and refusing to attend court is creepish behaviour even if you’re not guilty of what you’re accused of. Innocent non-creeps go to court and prove their innocence.
Unless you’re from Alabama, I believe the word “Alabama” is code for white trash. Having been raised in Alabama and lived in the North for few years I’ve come to conclude that I would rather be around a bunch of rednecks that know they’re idiots than a bunch of dumbasses who think they’re brilliant.
