[I]f you're in a photo on a social network with people making gang signs and wearing some rather common colors that are also associated with a gang, you can be convicted of criminal gang activities.

Aesop had a fable about this.

Freedom of association can be used against you...

This is a classic case of Lazy Cops. Instead of using the photographs publicly posted, to do the real police work of proving actual gang crime and activity, they are saying, "he has long hair and drives a VW bug so he must be a pot smoking hippy!"

Social web sites and posted photos are a wonderful tool to find smoke, but that is not the fire!

So that's who's left using myspace nowadays.
