instant phone video - happy slap
what will they do next ? Youths, bored with the world around them and themselves find it quite funny in the UK to slap (hit) someone and send the movie of it around the web by their phone. The comments under this blogentry show how nice and intelligent these kids are ..... http://www.frankieroberto.com/weblog/343.xhtml and http://www.frankieroberto.com/weblog/418.xhtml (and the racist undertones from some ethnic or National Front slappers, which makes it less innocent.....) Some of the videos you can see here http://www.hotniss.com/list.php?c=vids_extreme and a collection of the most violent ones into one here http://www.al4ie.com/?p=5 or this one http://18.104.22.168/misc/videos/happy_slaps.zip (some may be fake some think)
but the most famous one is this one http://www.mobango.com/filer/26203/Happy_Slap_TV.3gp
It has been reported by the http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4185441.stm bbc, ITV and more english media
tripod has already removed some websites like these http://happyslap2.tripod.com/id1.html
what does Belgacom do with its Blogservice and MMS because there are numerous problems coming with it. In Belgium you have anti-racist and anti-bullying laws, aside others. So if someone publish pics like that and there is a complaint, do you give the number of the gsm ? And what if it was a card or a stolen gsm ?
The uk police is investigating http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4185441.stm and some schools don't allow camphones any more.
but what will be next ? rape ?
but maybe we have to wait untill jackass and MTV gives you more youth culture like that (and all the continuous whory rapping clips they show.....)
