    I believe you'd be doing a civic duty.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Actually scanners are illegal...depending on where you live. Some states allow them, others don't.

    I would like to point out that I have heard of cases where a person helped a criminal directly though unintentially and got arrested for aiding and abetting a crime..don't know if they were ever convicted...but have heard of it.

    I would think that this twitter thing would fall along those lines...depending on how the guy phrased his twitters.
