Social Media Expert: It's Ridiculous for Police to Agree to Suspect's Demand for Facebook 'Likes'

May 24, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Portland SEO's Augusto Beato insists that there should be a law regulating the police in abiding by a suspect's whimsical demand as a condition for surrendering, especially for something trivial similar to Facebook likes.

Beato was reacting to news that Jose Simms, 29, who is wanted for failure to appear in court was able to negotiate with the Torrington Police Department to boost Facebook likes to a mugshot post for up to 15,000 as a condition for his surrender.

Torrington Police Lt. Brett Johnson revealed that Simms “negotiated” with him through Facebook about his required number of likes.

The Torrington Police Department was eventually able to get over 22,000 “likes” within roughly 24 hours, more than satisfying Simms' crave for social media popularity.

Beato pointed out that many would find Torrington Police Department's behavior in falling for such a ploy as hilarious.

"It is Simms' duty to surrender unconditionally and face charges," avers Beato, who is the CEO of Portland SEO. "Now, Simms is enjoying a higher degree of popularity that he craved for while the Torrington Police Department is left empty-handed."

There are seven arrest warrants for Simms, who cops suspect is hiding in New York.

Prosecutors: Australian cardinal's convictions should stand

Jun 19, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — Australian prosecutors argued in court Thursday that child sex convictions against a Roman Catholic cardinal should not be overturned and said his accuser had been a compelling witness. Cardinal George Pell, 77, is the most senior Catholic to be convicted of child sex abuse and is appealing those guilty verdicts in the Victoria state Court of Appeal. He attended both days of the hearing, wearing a cleric's collar and occasionally taking notes. The three judges reserved their decision to a date to be set. Prosecutor Chris Boyce told the judges that the convictions, largely based on the...

Australian Cardinal Pell appeals child sex convictions

Jun 19, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — Lawyers for the most senior Roman Catholic found guilty of child sex abuse argued in his appeal on Wednesday that he could not have molested two choirboys in an Australian cathedral undetected moments after Sunday Masses while he was dressed in an archbishop's robes. Cardinal George Pell, 77, wore a black suit and black shirt with a cleric's collar when he appeared for the Victoria state Court of Appeal hearing before three judges. He came and went from the court as the sole occupant of a prison van. He said nothing during the hearing. Pell's lawyer Bret...

New Zealand's 1st 'well-being budget' targets mental health

Jun 19, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand's government announced Thursday it will spend billions of dollars more on mental health services and combatting child poverty as part of a new approach to its finances. The liberal-led government unveiled the country's first so-called well-being budget. It aims to measure social outcomes like health and the environment alongside traditional metrics such as economic growth. The new approach has been lauded by some internationally but criticized by the conservative opposition as meaningless window-dressing. The budget was the first since a gunman killed 51 people at two Christchurch mosques in March, and it included money...

Australian state leader intervenes to approve coal mine

Jun 19, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — An Australian state government leader intervened on Wednesday to fast-track a proposed coal mine days after voters rejected tougher action to curb greenhouse gas emissions in the country's general election. The Carmichael mine proposed by India's Adani Mining in Queensland state was a bitterly polarizing issue ahead of Saturday's national election, which returned the conservative coalition government for a third three-year term. The election result defied opinion polls that suggested the center-left Labor Party would win government and implement its policies of slashing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 2005 levels by 2030. The coalition had...

CANBERRA, Australia — The Latest on Australia's general election (all times local): 11:05 a.m. President Donald Trump has spoken by phone with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia to congratulate him on his conservative coalition's surprise election victory. According to the White House, the two leaders reaffirmed the "critical importance" of the long-standing alliance and friendship between the United States and Australia, and they pledged to continue their close cooperation on shared priorities. Morrison's Liberal Partly has defied pre-election polls to clinch a third term in office. But the tight race for the 151-seat House of Representatives raises the prospect...
