You would think I was crazy if I said it was okay to steal a young woman's identity, start a false Facebook page in her name, and then post her racy photos lifted from her smartphone.
Crazy or not, the U.S. Justice Department is saying a DEA who did exactly that, had every right to do so.
In a little-known court filing, the Justice Department is claiming that a federal agent had the right to impersonate a young woman by secretly creating a bogus Facebook page in her name and likeness - without her knowing. In fact, Government attorneys are even defending the agent's right to scour the woman's smartphone and then post her personal photos.
Here's a peek at the profile:
The special agent included some racy images on the fake profile as well. One photo showed her on the hood of a BMW, legs spread, and in another she wore only skimpy attire (either a bikini or underwear). If that weren't enough, there was even an image of her son and niece.
