With the help of Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, and anonymous tipsters, New Jersey police were able to find and arrest a 16-year-old boy who commandeered a Wal-Mart public-address system last weekend and made the following announcement: "Attention Wal-Mart customers: All black people leave the store now." The boy was charged with bias, intimidation, and harassment and, if convicted, could spend a year in juvy. [NYT]
