Always a fun story. Members of a local gang here were out on probation for felony convictions and began posting rap videos talking about drive by shootings, waving guns around, and casually mentioning oops, sorry we hit your sister in that last drive by, etc.

Police got a warrant, arrested all four with guns and cocaine one night.

That was a few years ago. They're all still incarcerated. But at least those videos were fire...

Burney's rap sheet includes convictions for criminal mischief; grand theft auto; possession of drug paraphernalia; obstructing police; trespass; heroin possession; fleeing law enforcement; Ecstasy possession; and firearms possession by a convicted felon, and an allergy to shellfish.

I could see if the song confessed to a crime (illegal possession of firearms) being used as probables cause for a search. But this case crime is apperently promoting their gang. Seems like this should be a 1st amendment violation.

Nope.  As much as I am for freedom of expression - if I just bullshiat one night at a party that I killed some guy or something, I can't complain if the police stop by to have a little talk about that.  Yeah, it'd be me bullshiating, and there's not anything to find, but legit investigation would be a perfectly reasonable response to that kind of fronting - live, video, music, whatever.  I mean you're literally saying you broke the law and pretty hard, in public, probably to a few thousand people once the video's been up for a while - sure law enforcement will look into it.  I mean this is me, I don't love the farking cops, but in their shoes who the fark wouldn't check it out?

The arrest for felony "electronic communication" based on just making and posting the video is BS.

I could see using the video as a reason to get a warrant for arms possession or something, and using in-rap confessions of crimes as a reason to investigate, same as anyone who posts a video where they are shown committing or confessing to a crime.

I was driving my cab, yellow taxi not an uber
Decided I wanted to give a shout out to my favorite Youtuber
Clicked on his latest, see he didn't give me a like...
Sh** head din''t, f*** Doctor Mike

Piss in his Coke, (my favorite cola)
Infect his a** with a case of ebola
Hear that b**** can box, but he'll never see it coming
But my left hook is gonna f-up all of his plumbing

Then I'm gonna go pick up another fair
Without people like me you ain't gonna get no where
When I get home I'm gonna cook up some beans and rice
Gonna instagram the plate so I gotta make it look nice...

------

I was sitting in the office, watching the clock
Feeling the irony that I'm scrolling through Tik Tok
I get up, last break, I hit the cr*pper
Yeah, you know it's me, the office rapper

Log some more files, log out of windows
Floating like a leaf anyway that the wind blows
Say you need darkness for this rapping craft
So I shove Kent down the elevator shaft...

----

Look at me, Like Buddy Holly, Big Bopper
Singing and rapping as I flip you your Whopper
Dancing with the mop, my moves are spectacula'
Belting it all out, singing into my spatula

Last day of work, quitting, off to college
Gonna expand my brain, work on my knowledge
Puffing on my blunt, reefer madness, getting higher
One last thing... Shove my bosses head into the frier

No - it's evidence/a basis to open an investigation, not a crime in and of itself.  Until they investigate and actually find factual evidence the recording is just someone performing or whatever.  Although it is totally a party foul - sure you killed some people but you don't go around bragging about it, that's just rude

In fact, they are "doing their farking job".

Most crimes are solved with witness testimony or because the offender confesses to it (either to police or to someone else). Oftentimes someone comes forward and says that someone admitted to a murder privately, or to the entire bar, or used it against them in a threat. Other times someone with a grudge against the suspect comes forward, or fellow prisoner who wants time off their sentence will offer information. Sometimes they arrest an accomplice who turns them in for a lighter sentence. These are all perfectly normal and reasonable ways of catching a suspect, and if it weren't for the human element, very few crimes would ever be solved.

Thingster: .

Arrested for the video is the gotcha headline, they were arrested for more and the video charge was an add-on.


Nope. They used the vid arrest and found other stuff, AFTER, the fact.
This is no different than pulling over for fuzzy dice on the rear view mirror and finding other stuff.

Citing a law barring "criminal gang electronic communication," police collared Burney for posting "Aint Duckin No Rec" to YouTube in mid-February. The 2:21 rap song, which has been viewed about 2100 times and has garnered four comments, is one of three videos on Burney's YouTube page (which has 237 subscribers).

And getting arrested of felony charges only gained him one more subscriber.

Man, it's hard to build up any YouTube Street cred anymore. I mean how can you not love this song.  He references Peter Parker, Barry Bonds and Outback Steakhouse. So he likes Spiderman, baseball and Australian-themed chain restaurants?  What's more American than that?

I've heard worse. No reason to charge him with a felony.
