reports on the growing number of law enforcement
agencies using YouTube
to solve crimes. Recently, police have been uploading surveillance tape clips to the video-sharing website in hopes of generating leads based on the tapes. From ABC:
"When we normally forward a video to mainstream media, it'll be shown two, three, four times, and that'll be it," said Sgt. Jorge Lasso of the Hamilton Police Department. "The advantage of it on YouTube, of course, is not only that it costs nothing, but it remained on YouTube as long as we wanted it to."
So when Time
made "you" their Person of the Year
, they must have meant "you robbing a 7-Eleven
wearing women's nylons
on your head."
