People are stupid

Only a moron would post a video of himself breaking the law and expect to get away with it.

A driver who allegedly posted an internet video of himself speeding around Manhattan in just over 24 minutes is facing charges of reckless driving.

According to a criminal complaint charging Adam Tang with reckless driving, Tang claimed he never went over 100mph and ran only one red light at a pedestrian crosswalk. 

Tang, 30, appeared Friday in court in Manhattan but did not enter a plea.

Bail was set at $10,000 bond or $5,000 cash. His lawyer did not respond to a phone message seeking comment.

Police had arrested Tang on Thursday and seized his 2006 BMW Z4 after news reports began surfacing about a YouTube video, posted last week by a user called AfroDuck, that chronicled the night-time stunt. A day before his arrest, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told reporters investigators would review data from license-plate readers along Tang’s route.

What a tool.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
