Social media already has an established name on communication and information dissemination, but apparently, its ability is not limited to just keeping people from different parts of the world connected. It appears that it is also an effective tool to catch criminals.
In a very odd scenario, a wanted man from Michigan voluntarily turned himself in after losing to a police on a Facebook challenge he came up with. He agreed to surrender himself if the police’s Facebook post about him reaches 1,000 shares. Moreover, he promised to appear at the police station with a box of doughnut if he loses to them.
Wanted Michael Martin Zaydel dared the Redford Township Police Department into a dare to make him surrender.
The police quickly accepted the challenge and posted the notice on their Facebook page.
Charges against Michael Martin Zaydel were not mentioned, but he is reportedly wanted by police authorities for several outstanding warrants. Instead of turning himself immediately, the 21-year-old came up with a gimmick and dared the Redford Township Police Department last October 6 that he will walk into their office if they make a Facebook notice about him reach a thousand shares. Furthermore, he vowed to do voluntary community service to make up for charges pressed against him.
Unfortunately, the police were up for the challenge and posted his photos on their department’s Facebook page as he mentioned in his conditions. Ten days after taking the Facebook dare, the police department announced last Monday evening that Michael Zaydel finally turned himself in. He was good at keeping his word and came in with a box of doughnut for the officers. The representative of the department said:
“This evening at approximately 6:30 pm Michael Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself into RTPD for his outstanding warrants.
He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the donuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.”
The Redford Township Police Department was actually surprised when suspect Michael Zaydel kept his word.
The post about Michael reached way over a thousand shares so he surrendered himself.
Of course, he brought the doughnuts he promised.
He was in custody earlier this week for charges that were not mentioned by the police department.
The following day, he already went to court for his case hearing.
Many concerned and curious netizens helped spread the word about Michael that it even reached 4,400 shares as of Tuesday. As for the wanted man, he already appeared for his case hearing at the 17th District Court.
Man Gets Awarded $37,500 In Settlement After A Cop Mistook His Doughnut Glaze For Meth
Thank goodness, those cops didn’t kill him.
It is just right for law enforcers to have keen eyes so they can determine when a crime is happening. But they need to have a fair and good judgment too so they won’t send an innocent person behind bars for wrong accusations.
Such misfortune came to a man named Daniel Rushing who was arrested and strip-searched in 2015 for mistaking Krispy Kreme glaze flakes for meth. But his name was recently cleared of accusations and was awarded $37,500 in a settlement with the city of Orlando.
Daniel Rushing treats himself to a Krispy Kreme doughnut every other Wednesday and eats them in his car.
Dad Fights Kidnapper Who Tried To Snatch His Child With Powerful Kick In The Groin
The father quickly went full beast mode!
The greatest fear of a parent might be of their children being harmed. This fear might even turn parents into beasts when they see danger finally striking. And among the pair, there can be no greater warrior than a father protecting his child.
The world is indeed becoming a scary place for kids to live in. We always hear news about crimes done every day, and the sad part is that the children are often the ones that are being victimized. Kids are weak, innocent and easily swayed and it is for these facts that make criminals target the youngsters.
Crimes involving kids could include child trafficking, where children are sold to groups that use them as tools for their evil deeds like selling drugs, pickpocketing or begging money on the streets. We even hear about organizations slaughtering the kids and smuggle their organs. These crimes are just a few of the examples why parents are becoming overprotective of their kids. ...

A GoPro was found in the river and in it was over a thousand of envy-worthy travel photos. Find out how the finder reached the owner of the device that later turned him into a star.
A lot of people these days are leaving their homes to voyage all over the globe. We want to experience new adventures, feel new ambiance, witness unique environments and meet lovely people. And I bet, every traveler’s top tool to bring is the camera. Whether you take a DSLR camera, a phone camera, a drone or a sports camera with you, taking photos while traveling have already become a must.
While some people believe that photography takes travelers away from what they should be experiencing, others believe the opposite. We like recording every crumb of detail of our travels and it is the photos we take that can bring immediate life back to those moments once we go back home. How unfortunate it is then to lose an album of your travel? Not to mention losing the whole camera even before you could create a backup of your travel photo collections.
