Zimbabwe Prof Arrested, Tortured for Watching Viral Vids

Zimbabwe Prof Arrested, Tortured for Watching Viral Vids

Wired
February 25, 2011

Munyaradzi Gwisai, a lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe’s law school, was showing internet videos about the tumult sweeping across North Africa to students and activists last Saturday, when state security agents burst into his office.

The agents seized laptop computers, DVD discs and a video projector before arresting 45 people, including Gwisai, who runs the Labor Law Center at the University of Zimbabwe. All 45 have been charged with treason — which can carry a sentence of life imprisonment or death — for, in essence, watching viral videos.

Gwisai and five others were brutally tortured during the next 72 hours, he testified Thursday at an initial hearing.

There were “assaults all over the detainees’ bodies, under their feet and buttocks through the use of broomsticks, metal rods, pieces of timber, open palms and some blunt objects,” The Zimbabwean newspaper reports, in an account of the court proceedings.

Under dictator Robert Mugabe, watching internet videos in Zimbabwe can be a capital offense, it would seem. The videos included BBC World News and Al-Jazeera clips, which Gwisai had downloaded from Kubatana, a web-based activist group in Zimbabwe.

Nine out of 10 people lack internet access in Zimbabwe, and cable TV is an extravagant luxury. DStv, the monopoly satellite provider, costs $70 per month –- out of reach for most people in a country where teachers make $150 per month.

Man Could Face 20 Years for Fake YouTube Video

Man Could Face 20 Years for Fake YouTube Video

Maximum PC
February 16, 2011


Evan Daniel Emory, a 21-year-old from Muskegon, Michigan, may have the next 20 years to ponder what prompted him to edit a YouTube video that subsequently caused such an uproar. The video, which as since been removed from YouTube, makes it appear that Emory is singing provocative lyrics to a group of children in a first-grade classroom. He was actually singing Adam Sandler’s “Lunch Lady Land,” but later altered the video, earning him a lengthy felony charge, MLive.com reports.

Authorities say Emory “victimized” the entire first-grade classroom and was charged with manufacturing child sexual abusive material, which is a 20-year felony. Emory was granted access to the classroom after he “informed the teacher that he wanted to video himself singing to the class as a portion of his portfolio to help him gain admission to a Big Ten School of Education.” What he didn’t disclose is that he would later edit the video with raunchy lyrics that we won’t repost here. At one point, the video turns to the audience and shows the recognizable faces of the children smiling.

“I’m outraged that he’s taken a video and edited it to make it appear that he did those actions and said those things in front of students, which he did not. It’s absolutely ridiculous,” said John VanLoon, the school’s Superintendent. “We are currently working with law enforcement on the issue.”

Emory, who was arrested earlier today, admitted he deceived school officials in order to gain access to the classroom, but said he never intended “to hurt anybody, just wanted to make everyone laugh.”

A US Marine has been kicked out of the corps and another has been punished after a video surfaced of Marines throwing a puppy off a cliff in Iraq.

The video, which was posted on YouTube, showed two Marines joking and holding up a puppy before it was hurled into a gully.

Marine Corps Base Hawaii said today that Lance Corporal David Motari received unspecified “non-judicial punishment” and “is being processed for separation” from the Marine Corps, the Associated Press reported.

The second Marine, Sergeant Crismarvin Banez Encarnacion received unspecified “non-judicial” punishment.

Cop Tasers Hand-Cuffed Disabled Man

Video Shows Cop Tasering Already Restrained Disabled Man
Abuse of “last option before lethal force” continues

Recently uncovered video of a disabled British Columbia man being shocked with a taser by a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer has sparked controversy and once again brought the use of such weapons into the limelight.

The video, which was shot in 2004 but only recently released to legal representitives, shows John Dempsey, who suffered from a debilitating muscle disorder similar to Parkinson’s disease, being forced to the ground by two RCMP officers inside a Kamloops, B.C. RCMP detachment.

The video shows Dempsey being led into the booking room after being arrested for trying to intervene in the arrest of a friend whom he believed the police were being too heavy handed with.

Already handcuffed and subsequently shoved face down to the ground, an officer then fires a taser into Dempsey’s back at point blank range.

“I wasn’t resisting arrest, I calmly walked, he grabbed me, and said this will teach you not to [profanity] with us, that’s what he said,” Dempsey later commented.

Watch the Video:

Dempsey had initiated a lawsuit accusing the RCMP of excessive force, but was sadly killed in a traffic accident recently.

Speeder Tasered by trooper on YouTube video gets $40,000 from state

Flashback: Man Tased For Asking Officer Why He Was Stopped

A Vernal man shocked twice with a Taser during a traffic stop last year has accepted a $40,000 settlement in a lawsuit filed against the state and a Utah Highway Patrol trooper.The Utah Attorney General’s Office announced the settlement between Jared Massey and UHP trooper Jon Gardner on Monday.

“We think this is a legally defensible case because Trooper Gardner acted reasonably to avert a volatile and potentially dangerous confrontation on the side of a busy highway,” said Assistant Attorney General Scott Cheney, who represented Gardner. “We recognize, however, that this is a close case.”

The settlement comes on the heels of a decision by Tooele County prosecutors earlier this month that determined Gardner’s actions were not criminal. An internal UHP investigation also cleared the trooper.

Video of the trooper zapping Massey, taken by the trooper’s dashboard camera, came to prominence after Massey posted it on the Internet site YouTube. Since it was posted last year, it has been viewed more than 1.7 million times.

Massey’s attorney, Bob Sykes, said Monday the offer to settle the case was not the state’s first and that his client decided to take it.

Massey filed a lawsuit against Gardner in January alleging the trooper violated his civil rights when he zapped him during a traffic stop Sept. 14, 2007, on Highway 40 in Uintah County.

He was stopped for driving 61 mph in a 40 mph zone.
During the stop, Massey argued with Gardner about his speed and then refused to sign the citation. Massey then got out of his car and followed Gardner to his police car where he was asked to place his hands behind his back. When Massey refused, Gardner shocked him.

The suit said Massey fell screaming in pain after being shocked while Gardner taunted him by saying, “Hurts, doesn’t it?” Massey struck his head against the pavement and was zapped a second time because he was unable to immediately obey an order to turn over on his stomach, according to the suit.

“We thought the amount of force used was outrageous,” Sykes said Monday.

The settlement amount includes attorneys’ fees. The Attorney General’s Office says Massey has agreed to dismiss his lawsuit, all claims against Gardner and all potential claims against UHP, the Utah Department of Public Safety and the state.

Military officials are investigating an Internet video that purports to show a Marine throwing a puppy off a rocky cliff.

Maj. Chris Perrine of the Marine Corps Base Hawaii says it appears the man is based with a unit in the islands.

Marine officials are calling the YouTube video “shocking and deplorable” and say it violates “the high standard we expect of every Marine.”

The low-quality video shows two Marines joking as one holds up what appears to be a motionless black and white puppy, which he then hurls into a rocky gully.

A yelping sound is heard as it flies through the air.
