Cranston, Rhode Island costume shop owner Ann Bruno was arrested recently by police for allegedly cyberstalking and harassing a local costume shop competitor. Bruno had been using public access computer systems to do her deeds and was caught in the act.

After her arrest, Bruno then asked Jim Taricani (I-Team Investigative Reporter) to tell her side of the story. The result is this odd, awkward and antic-filled interview.

Implications - The proliferation of social networking has also given rise to the problem of cyberstalking. As such, consumers are demanding more security features to be implemented into their social networking platforms. Third-party companies can capitalize on this by providing add-on security features to social networking websites.
