Is it illegal to post someone's picture on Facebook without their permission.

Asked almost 3 years ago - Grady, AL

Last night my neighbor shot and killed my dog. As far as the law is concerned our hands are tied in pursuing any legal action against him because he said our dog threatened him. That was an all out lie to cover his ... The dogs would only let me come near him. He even just joked about the fact that if he even looked at the dog it would take off running. ANYWAY I want to take a picture from his ex-wife's page and post it on my page to let everyone know what he did. Only facts will be written and the picture is already on facebook so all i have to do is copy it and post it on my page.
