Jermaine Taylor, 21, is on the run from prison. He was recalled for breaching his parole terms. Taylor is a drug dealer, selling cocaine. He was sentenced in December 2017 and received a sentence of 3 years in prison. He was released on parole in December 2018, and now is again wanted by the authorities.

On their Facebook page, Gwent police reached out for help to the local people. But what they got in return, was something that couldn't expect. His hairstyle that could be seen on the mugshot that the police posted, was quickly mocked by hundreds of Facebook users. It even quickly went viral, getting over 80,000 comments and 13,000 shares.

"Looks like his hairline is on the run too," said one of the users, Nick Sleek Meek. Another user, Simon Townend, commented, "You need to re trace his steps with a fine tooth comb. And then please give it back to him."

It was all quickly resumed by another Facebook user, Lawrie Hillman, "He's vanished into thin hair. He's neither here nor hair." And it was actually not only the Facebook users that made fun out of this situation. The British magazine "The Sun" also wrote about it, and they called their article "Thinning Blue Line."

But the British police wasn't so happy with people's reaction. "'Please remember that harassing, threatening and abusing people on social media can be against the law," they stated. They also advised the people to "be as careful on social media", just like they would be "in any other form of communication."

Gwent police resumed it, saying that "If you say something about someone which is grossly offensive or is of an indecent, obscene or menacing character, then you could be investigated by the police."
