‘When a Texas woman discovered the true identity of a local undercover cop, she outted the officer by posting a photograph of the man on Facebook. Now she’s awaiting trial for a felony charge after authorities arrested her on a count of retaliation.
Melissa Walthall, 30, tells police in Mesquite, Texas that she first saw a photograph of a man revealed to be an undercover officer after a friend of hers drafted up a poster he intended on plastering around town. She acquired a copy of the image, uploaded it to her Facebook and captioned it with the warning: “Undercover Mesquite Narcotics . . . Anyone know this bitch?”’
