Just a quick update on all those Facebook check-ins in North Dakota yesterday. As it turns out, the Morton County Sherrif's Department says that it is not looking at check-ins to verify protestors of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The Morton County Sheriff's Department took to Facebook and said:

Yesterday, thousands of Facebook users "checked in" at Standing Rock Indian reservation in Cannon Ball, ND in hopes of confusing police and showing support for the activists.

Despite the validity of the original post, The LA Times says, "Some Native American activists still welcomed the check-ins as another form of showing support for the months-long protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, proposed to run past tribal land on its route between North Dakota and Illinois."

This just goes to show: when idiots post their idiotic escapades online, there's a good chance there's someone less dumb out there who will take notice. Nice work, friends.

New York's police department had a perfectly fine idea: Connect with the citizens using the hashtag #myNYPD to let the beautiful people of New York share their experience with police officers. Well, it would have been perfectly fine if they had predicted the internet doing what the internet does and hijacking the hashtag to talk about questionable police practices.

Here's what the people had to say, courtesy of Know Your Meme.
