Can smartphones becomes “crimephones”? Every tool can be used for bad and good, and today we have a couple interesting stories for you (as well as an awesome discount).
Criminal minds are hard to understand. Would you believe if I told you a phone thief would have the guts to call the cops on its victim? That is exactly what happened in Seattle. A man listening to music with his eyes closed got his phone taken by a couple sitting next to him. After the music stopped playing, he noticed them holding the device.
He asked for it and was attacked, but he continued to follow them out the bus, claiming they had his device. Long story short, the lady calls the police and they discover she had the smartphone in her pocket. She was arrested immediately.
Opinion: Well thieves just couldn’t have been more persistent and stupid, really. How do you have the guts to call the cops on your victim? Dis she realize such investigation wouldn’t exactly favor a thief?
The internet went wild today, after reports of a man wanting to hide his roommate’s body spread all over the web. It turns out there were some inconsistencies and misunderstandings in the story, but this doesn’t mean the iPhone was not involved in the crime.
The user’s iPhone 4 seems to have been of some help, holding a picture (evidence) and being used as a flashlight 9 times. The reason for the killing? His roommate was going out with the murderer’s ex girlfriend.
Opinion: It’s never fun to hear such stories, but it’s interesting how such a powerful tool that we deem harmless can be used for crime.
