Default Police can investigate internet criminal allegations

A accuses B of a crime in an internet posting.

The cops can actually visit *B* to investigate A's claim against B.
Investigating B is possible, but without suspicion (that requires
talking to A first),, it would be easier to just ask A to make the
same statements directly to law enforcement, under oath, of course.
Since A claims to want to protect the public interest, this is an
implied waiver of many rights, including the right to privacy that B
never surrendered.

Now, if, in the course of investigating A's claims about B, OTHER
crimes committed by A were discovered, well, that would be in the
course of an investigation that A initiated himself (or herself), by
claiming to be out to protec the public, and by accusing B of a crime,
thus giving the police grounds to take a formal statement. *This also
affords B the right to face his accuser, and to win a civil lawsuit,
using A's own sworn statements (or refusal to make them) as evidence.

A shortcut to achieving this would be to treat any criminal allegation
made against another over the internet as if it were a statement made
to law enforcement.


Correction: that should say "visit A" to get a statement regarding A's
allegations.
