Ban the Internet!

The Philly city council blames the messenger:

Two members of Philadelphia's city council are considering legal action against Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace in the wake of a "flash mob" earlier this week that turned violent, according to a letter sent to the city's mayor and obtained by CNET
Because it's Facebook's fault that bad acts were planned by people on it. Had they planned it by phone, would they be suing Verizon and AT&T?

Not Facebook's "fault" per se, but if it's found that these animals plotted this rampage via Facebook they could face federal charges relating to RICO and/or using interstate telephone/internet lines to plot criminal activity. Can't wait.
