How Idiotic Instagram Selfies Earned a 19-Year-Old Criminal 142 Felony Counts


This was NOT a good week for moronic criminals with access to Instagram. After posting a bunch of ill-advised selfies on the photo sharing site, a Florida teenager now finds himself behind bars and facing 142 felony counts thanks to his oversharing habit.

The young man in question is 19-year-old in Dupree Johnson from south Florida. Mr. Johnson decided that it would be a good idea to document his massive stash of stolen firearms on Instagram, even though his rap sheet already included felony convictions for grand theft, burglary, and (go figure) felony possession of a firearm.


Photos posted to his account (which has since been taken offline) showed the young man flaunting his collection of guns, jewels, and drugs which, together, gave the police enough reason to acquire a search warrant.

Lo and behold, when they arrived at Johnson’s house, they found a quarter million dollars in goods and enough evidence to label him the “ring leader” in tens of Palm Beach senior center burglaries. The 19-year-old now faces 142 counts of felony possession of a firearm or ammo.


But that’s not even the unbelievable part, this is: According to several news reports, when the police asked him his occupation, he replied “thief.” We give him a 10 for honesty…

    Smh….there is so much wrong with this statement….you stated you are from “liberal California” and in the Military so I’m pretty sure you are not aware of the “Black experience” according to ALL African Americans in the United States…I’m from a Black community in the DEEP South, which *gasps* uplifted each other…never saw a gang banger, never experienced anyone doing or dealing drugs until I got to college…and even those I saw then were using it as a means to pay an education. My high school was 99.9% African American, and the majority of us now have graduate or professional degrees….looks like we weren’t opposed to education…the difference between you and I (as many as there are) is that I know I came from a specific type of community and that everyone did not have the push and support from their family, friends, neighbors, teachers as I did, so our experiences were not the same, and I embrace it. I love talking to young, uneducated youth to try to HELP them learn the value of an education. You probably get those questions about going to a “White school” because many of us have experienced those who make that choice make it and never return. Not bashing your decision to attend the school you attended and not generalizing, I preeetttyyyy sure those questions would not have been the same had you chosen to attend a “Black” school…mainly because there is more confidence that you would come back and try to help those who need it…I’ve experienced that first hand MANY times….Will everybody accept the help, no, but at least some people care enough to try…There was a stark difference in the education, facilities, and opportunities from my community and the White community across the railroad tracks (literally), so as much as you are obviously blinded into thinking there is no such thing as institutional racism, it’s real…I have a Master’s Degree in Public Health from a “White” school and even we were taught that by none other than *gasps again* White professors…Every one isn’t as blinded as you, just as everyone isn’t as privileged as you….So please, stop generalizing our race and comparing us to other communities, because just as everyone’s current struggle is not the same, everyone’s past struggle isn’t either…. OH! And your statement in your last parentheses shows are clearly blinded (since you basically used that to justify your already incorrect hypothesis) and are in no way part of the solution….

    I’m honestly surprised anyone is still commenting on this post. Look, if you feel the white people are the ones creating racism and it isn’t something we are perpetuating ourselves then so be it. I for one will not play the victim in this world, if there are challenges I will push past them. If everyone focuses more on pushing through the challenges set before them instead of blaming others on their situations then I think everyone could prosper. It’s true there is no such thing as economic equality, such is the way of a capitalist country, however anyone in poor environments is in the same boat and to blame “white men” or anyone else on a situation is just playing the victim. I was just watching a few weeks back about some game in the east that teens are playing where they run up and randomly punch unsuspecting people walking down the street and the first thing I thought was “jeez this is why people think the things they think of us as it is”. I really feel that we perpetuate this cycle of racism ourselves more than any outside institution.

  • nick

    actually sir YOUR comment is the only racist one. She may be implying that he has many children due to the FACT that criminals, a lower socioeconomic level in society, have less legal income, and also normally have a higher rate of offspring.

    You are inferring that because the poster has a white picture and by their comment that they must be racist towards black people…… conclusion YOU sir are the dumb ass

  • Ebs

    Well being he is 19 yrs old and acting like that, what makes you think he doesn’t have a kid or two?

  • KaliKross

    Obama and Eric Holder made statements about this guy? When? Where? On Faux News?

  • Barrett McGrath

    Lol because he’s black. 19 tryna play Johnny badass. Better cash in that fake gold in your mouth for a few bucks on your books. You’re gonna need it.

    This is what you should of said. “A perfect candidate for either sterilization. Or better yet, his choice of his own stolen firearms to execute him with.”

  • Eric Poulos

    Us rednecks have kids by 13, why can’t black folks as well ? Who’s the bigot here ?

  • just a horrible person

    What does being liberal have to do with anything? I pretty liberal, and humane, but at some point…. its best to cut the cancer out, understand?

  • billy

    so your saying there should be a program for sterilizing “idiots”?
    whose going to run it? the US Gov’t? who classifies as “idiots”? people who make baseless claims of social genocide on the internet? cause thats you buddy


    Eric YOU just need to focus on NEVER REPRODUCING. That means that YOU don’t need to have kids. When you are as dumb as you SEEM to be I have no choice but recommend you do not bring anyone in this world. #nuffsed



    YOU MAKE NO SENSE!!! None at all….stop with the guessing (maybe she meant this, maybe she meant that)

    Let the lady speak for herself and you STFU and take ya ass back to the sideline.

  • Never right…

    Your a racist if you DO qualify it, your a racist if you DON’T qualify it. Bottom line, your a racist IF YOU DONT AGREE WITH MY OPINION. What a load of BS.

    well one things for sure,we know HE DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA LoL

  • Daniel Pryce

    I just leave it, that way of thinking is no longer acceptable in today’s age. Just try to imagine them holding down a job with that attitude. And they are just not worth the time of day to argue with them.

  • Daniel Pryce

    These are some of the most hateful comments i’ve read on PetaPixal.

  • K S B

    LOL. The thought of you being racist didn’t come along until I read the “and no, not because he’s black.”

  • Erienne Brown

    Being that he is a felon I doubt he get any government money outside of jail. In my state he could not. And quite honestly judging from the car and stacks of money he is holding leads me to think he is boosting our economy. He is a very smart young many im sure. Not all thieves ever reach that level. He did not get there on luck. (granted this goof was a doosey) However, in this country we do not try to educate these “types” (take it how you want). We like to keep our so called 1% right were they are. My point is not that he is right to be a thief by any means. My point is we should wake up and see why a talented young man does not have options, and motivation to be a owner of a legal company. One last point he is not the problem the buyers are. Don’t hate the hussel hate why our country is so broke honest people are turning to the black market. BTW it wont bother me if you disagree you probably have never held a self thought opinion to offend me enough to care.

    This is sad on so many level. These kids are so lost.

  • Michael Martinez

    Liberalism is the cancer. Do you understand? Liberalism leads people down this path.

  • Ashton War

    Before or after we sterilize him?

  • Don Key

    200 years later? The black Africans sold their own first. Blacks should be thankful for the white man, otherwise they would still be in mud huts killing each other and getting pissed on by cows.

  • Ritchie

    you know nothing about the individual that made the comment and you know nothing of the crimes that have been committed nor was there any mention of tax dollars or trophies just your uneducated response to a different opinion so therefore I must be correct in assuming your a transexual pedophile…’murica

  • Ryan

    The amount of hypocrisy that you fail to recognize in your own reply.

  • Ryan

    You claim statements are false because of no suggestion in reference to the article. Yet do the same thing in your reply by applying your assumptions towards me. Oh the hypocrisy is rich with you. Whites actually are not. Check the stats. In fact you have one in office right now that is the biggest of them all.

    “Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery. When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife. Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate. The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.” – The Color of Crime

  • Gregory Reynolds

    Interesting that you would post fake info from a white supremacy author, Jared Taylor. How about you verify that by looking at the actual info from the FBI crime stats

  • Ryan

    Of course you’d turn that into a racist reply. You’re out of touch with reality and your own people. Keep living the dream troll.
