This NYPD Idea Backfired Horribly On Twitter

The New York City Police Department sent out an interesting request on Tuesday, asking followers to send photos of themselves posing proudly with officers using the hashtag #myNYPD.

An attempt at web-savvy community building? Not enough criminals humble bragging about their crimes on the Internet today? It's unclear, but it's also safe to assume the resulting tweets probably weren't what the NYPD had in mind:
