Man creates a fake Twitter account and the police raid the house and seize all computers and phones!!
PEORIA Police searched a West Bluff house Tuesday and seized phones and computers in an effort to unmask the author of a parody Twitter account that purported to be Mayor Jim Ardis.

The account known as @Peoriamayor on the popular social media service that limits entries to 140 characters already had been suspended for several weeks when up to seven plainclothes police officers executed a search warrant about 5:20 p.m. at 1220 N. University St.

So your bosses want us not to create fake accounts?

Too bad. Tell them their plan is NEVER going to work, so they might as well give up NOW.

Weird...people create fake twitter accounts all the time...((or so I hear anyway)...I have never heard that it was illegal.

My guess is the Mayor just didn't like it and sent his paid, personal thug force to deal with it...

There are a lot of stupid people out there who think whatever comes across twitter is legit...but oh well...

The right way for the Mayor to deal with this is to contact Twitter and have the account suspended/deleted. The wrong way is to throw a fucking fit and have people arrested/swat teamed.

The right way for the fucknuckle who created the account to deal with a bad politician is not to create a twitter account claiming to be said official and attempting to libel said bad politician.

Ardis wrote a letter to a judge for a coke dealer busted with quite a lot of coke. A character reference letter.


The homeless guy jailed for picking up the police chiefs special secret report is pretty fucked up too. That was a few months back. Framed up, facing 10 years for picking up litter.

There is absolutely no law against opening a fake twitter account.

So he needs to sue the shit out of the police department and the city for millions upon millions of dollars.

A twitter account is not like bank account or some other official account where you need to provide actual proof of identity. Its a shitty social website, thats it.


The police were completely out of their jurisdiction and who ever the judge was that signed off on the search warrant needs to be immediately removed from the bench because he/she clearly do not know anything about the laws.

well it depends on what you consider fake. If someone is using Xmen360 for their Twitter handle (I don't know if one really exists, just picking it out of the air) and it's also their email, I mean, we're all using "fake accounts" then aren't we? People pick characters they like or that kind of thing. I realize this was a Mayor's name, but geesh, why didn't they just disable the account and leave it at that?

Looks like they did both, had his account suspended. Then he sent in SWAT 7 days later. But why shouldn't he? That's how they roll in Illinois Democrat politics, and lets be honest, that's how the governing Democrats act and behave towards the public, so goose and gander stuff.

One things needed for Agenda 21 to succeed for the NWO'rs, is to have the public ready to lynch law enforcement at a moments notice. For when it's Marshal Law time, the LEO with enough experience to threaten Agenda 21 will need to be quickly neutralized so as to limit the amount of revolutions. That means your local sheriff who would stand with the people and not the elite, would be the first target of mob anger over the system falling apart. It suits Agenda 21 to have a populace ready to kill police.

Yup, I hear you although I don't have your same belief in the morality of our sheriffs. One or two here or there maybe, but those folks are just as bad as most, unfortunately. How I want to believe otherwise.

No doubt the Mayor is a jackass, but my point also hints at the Twitter account creator as being a moron. I stand by that. First, if you're going to get on the internet and create some sort of aimed fuckery, at least have the wit to protect yourself. Multiple VPN's behind more than one virtual machines... just for a start. And this coming from a layman with little actual knowledge of how true annonymity is done.
But at least make the attempt.

Thinking he had to of posted something that got him nailed. In all of the twitterverse it would be impossible for some Mayor to know someone was out there impersonating him unless said dumbass impersonator did/posted something truly noteworthy.

Again, not worth a swat team or an arrest but the blame here I'm not willing to lay at one doorstep.
