Editor’s note: You may remember our post a while back about game wardens identifying and charging an angler with several violations after he posted pictures of his illegal catches on his Facebook page.  In a similar case, Boston police went after a felon for posting pictures of his time at the gun range on twitter.  It’s not that I am in favor of a felon being at the gun range, that’s an entirely different debate that I am not trying to have.  It sounds like this guy had no business being around any sort of firearms given his rap sheet. But seriously people, watch what you put on social media, especially if you are breaking the law (which, again, I don’t recommend.) There are always eyes watching…  Check out the story below:

Boston native Kwmaine Davis didn’t think there was any harm spending the day at a gun range, and he was happy to share his trip with his friends via Twitter.

Unfortunately for Davis, one of his followers was a Boston law enforcement officer.

“Yes, I’m really bout that action,” announced Davis along with his photo of himself holding guns akimbo. If he were not a felon, this wouldn’t have been a problem.

Convicted once before of illegal gun possession and twice a gunshot victim, Davis had no business handling firearms. A federal judge has sentenced him to 18 months in prison as a result of his self-incriminating photo.

Davis, 23, plead guilty in exchange for a sentence he and his attorney agreed upon with the prosecution.

He has been involved with the local H-block gang from the age of 13 although since his previous incarceration his attorney says he has made an effort to turn things around. Davis’ lawyer, Joshua Hanye said Davis is “ready to make a change.”

Before handing down the sentence, U.S. District Judge Denise Casper told Davis, “At the end of the day, it’s up to you, and I wish you good luck.”
