While you’d probably never mock a hardened criminal to his face, with the anonymity of the internet, it can be open season. So when police in the UK released the mugshot of a wanted drug dealer, out came the trolls.
The Gwent Police Department had hoped for tips from the public to help capture Jermaine Taylor, but instead just received comments about the 21-year-old’s receding hairline.
“Looks like his hairline is on the run too,” one Facebook user wrote, while another joked, “His hairline goes back further than my family tree.”
Of course, the cops weren’t happy, reminding users that the rules are different across the pond, noting, “Please remember that harassing, threatening and abusing people on social media can be against the law.”
