Wikipedia Isn’t Always Right — Some Guy Got Arrested And Blames Wiki Advice
Well, I'm glad this story didn't come from the Yakima Valley. I have complete faith in most everyone around here that they wouldn't take legal advice from a website. They would go to a better source than that, right?Some guy in Florida didn't, though, and his mistake cost him a stay in jail. He thought that getting advice from Wikipedia was a good idea. Clearly, it was not.
I suggest that if you need legal advice on anything, it would be best to ask an actual lawyer or police officer, not turn to the web. I do have to say, though, that I love everything else about Wikipedia and I think it is a good service, you just have to watch some of the content sometimes.
