Can police track a Facebook messag 2 my laptop used by a friend?

Hi i had friends stay over, i stupidly confided about a few things, i was annoyed, and ended up saying too much about person S. This one friend person P had some grievances against person S over some things she had done in the past, and though the things i told her was true. She messaged the person i was talking about Person B and told her 'that person S has been saying things about her and others'. Person B wrote to person S and told her who confronted on public platform this was happening but denying it. Stupidly trying to cover her track, i think person P messaged her further repeating things from the past to take the attention away from the pervious action, she was worried il find out and it will be tracked to her. However her action this time bordered on harassment bearing in mind this friend person P was going through a crisis, and desperate to cover up she went too far trying to sound like a random joe blog Now the person she has done this to Person S has reported it to the police.. This friend person P has now disappeared in panic but she used my laptop to do all this. . And the friend in question person Swho has reported it as hate crime thinks i had something to do with this, cos i only knew some of those things. i feel really upset as feel its become a mess, and i don't know what that friend P has exactly said and if it really does amount to hate crime. i feel angry at myself for being so stupid. Im worried as this friend had used my laptop, i have no idea if she has deactivated the accounts either. I'm thinking person S is probably exaggerating it, as she has a tendency to do this. i don't know what happened between the two of them why its so frustrating as i don't know what to think. please help with some advice.

I don't think you would be in any serious trouble. I'm sure this goes on a lot of them on facebook, my classmates had a similar situation to yours and the police didn't do anything. But Facebook suspended their accounts for a while and the teaches for involved, it isn't hate crime as such. I mean I'm sure the police have dealt with a lot worse. Words are words, if they threatened something serious and then took the action then the police would get involved. So this is just petty compared to some cases and also anything to do with court you need to always provide evidence to win a case.
So you have nothing to worry about.

A trivial Facebook message was sent to a woman who has a friend at the FBI. She had him trace it and it showed the IP address as mine. There were 5 other people in the house that night. Can they find out whose phone it came from? If so, can they do it without a court order?

Not legally. Even getting the IP from Facebook without any due-cause is probably not legal.

Does Facebook have word triggers? And is it possible to get traced when your IP address is hidden?

Word triggers to contact the police? No, not that I've ever heard/read of.
Hiding your IP address via a proxy makes it very difficult to track it down. The local cops trying to find you for harassing an ex-girlfriend would probably not bother. The CIA or NSA tracking you for terrorist activity or treasonous activity would still find you.

Unless using someone else's picture on Facebook is a crime, the police wont care.
