Police Serves Court Order Via Facebook (VIDEO)

The best way to chastise a Facebook stalker? Get the police to serve him a restraining order directly on Facebook.

An Australian man who had been found guilty of domestic violence and cyber-bullying his ex-girlfriend, was stupefied when after logging into the social network he found a personal video message from the Victorian police on his Facebook profile page. Domain-B.com writes that when the police could not trace and contact the man, they got court approval to deliver the court papers via Facebook. A document containing the intervention order was then sent via a private message, and a movie clip of leading senior constable Stuart Walton of Flemington Police reading out the order “as if the respondent was being directly spoken to” was posted to his profile.

Curious about that video? We’ve got it right here:

After watching it, the stalker probably didn’t hit the “Like” button, but he did agree to stop harassing his girlfriend and delete his profile. You don’t mess with the Australian police!

If you have any stalkers on Facebook you want to scare, click the Share button that appears once the video has finished playing and tag your bullies in a status update, or “Send as a Message instead” to keep things private.
