Question: The police poated my pic.and car and lisc,pkate numbet on there facebook and now is allover town,about suspicious behavior ,with no probale cause is that legal

Answer: It would depend on what the officers specifically posted online about your vehicle and you. Keep in mind that probable cause only comes into play if you are being arrested for a criminal offense. What it sounds like here is that the officers have posted information about you and your vehicle because you were observed in an area and perceived by someone to be acting suspiciously. There is nothing illegal about the officers providing information, so long as they are not wrongfully accusing you of a crime or criminal activity. It is one thing to say a person or vehicle is suspicious and another to say a crime has been committed.
