Two teens apparently couldn’t find an open Internet Cafe or another available computer at 3:30 a.m. so they could check their Facebook Page. What could have been so pressing? So, the obvious solution came to mind – break into the CNN Headquarters. Surely they will have computers.
Aldayne Fearon, 18, and Francis Mutemwa, 17 were arrested last week after breaking into a CNN Atlanta’s newsroom to get a peek at their Facebook pages.
I am sure their parents won’t “like” this situation.
After driving to the Omni Hotel in Mutemwa’s mother’s red Mercedes, the teens scaled the wall and gained access to CNN’s fifth floor newsroom. They were discovered at approximately 3:30 a.m. by police who had been contacted by CNN security, according to Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones.
The two were found working on two computers which were not password protected. At the time of their arrest, they were checking their Facebook pages on those computers.
The teens initially declined to give law enforcement their names, but eventually capitulated.
Each man was charged with criminal trespassing.
I suspect Facebook will close their accounts and the two will have to live without getting their Facebook fixes.
