How's this for a Twitter addiction - an LAPD homicide detective is under fire for tweeting out a picture of a crime scene while on the job. 

Veteran detective Sal LaBarbera posted the picture (which can be seen above) on his Twitter account of a body covered in a white and red blanket on a street in East LA last week, but it didn't actually receive any attention until just recently when a LA-based arts blog, LA Taco, criticized the post. 

In response, LaBarbera has said that, "That's the same exact photo the news folks would have taken," and added that he tweets about crime scenes in an attempt to raise awareness about gang violence.

Do you think LaBarbera was out of line tweeting the pic?
