British Thief Threatens to Unfriend Mom on Facebook

Charlie Cooper claims his Ecstasy addition led him to rob the houses he cleaned and eventually get caught by the Canterbury, England police. But that’s not where this Canterbury tale ends. After the Herne Bay Gazette, a local newspaper, published a story about his arrest and a photo, Charlie started complaining about it to the paper on Facebook. He complained that the paper didn’t ask him if they could take a picture of him.

It was at this point that Charlie’s mom dressed the 20-year-old down on his Facebook post, “They don’t need your permission to take your picture if the courts have given them permission to be there to do so,” which of course enraged Charlie further.

He responded, “They do, I don’t want my picture taken. End of.”

To which mom wrote back: ”IT DONE NOW. THAT LADY DIDNT WANT HER JEWLERY TAKING BUT YOU DID IT ANYWAY, END OF.”

Charlie then threatens to block his mom on Facebook: ”This is why I didnt have you on facebook mum, you say things like that, im blocking you ok”

And that’s not even the end of this tale, reported by Kent Online, as his mom finally has the last word: ”Itsa the truth charlie, you dont like the truth, until you realise things like this you will never learne ok,”

Following the exchange, several folks weighed in on the legal reality that the newspaper absolutely didn’t need permission to publish Charlie’s photo since he was arrested for the crime.
