Making a Murderer on YouTube
In this article I’m going to tell you all about YouTube Making a Murderer. YouTube is the number one video sharing website, and understandably so since it’s so popular. But did you know that YouTube can also help you in your business? Let me explain.
When making a movie or video, you can either shoot your own scenes or let someone else do it for you. But shooting your own scenes can be difficult. It takes time to find the right background, the right color gamma, and other such things. The problem is that you might accidentally kill someone while shooting your video. For example, if you were making a video about how to prevent blisters from walking around on your feet, instead of trying to model someone walking around on their feet, you could instead just capture them in a door frame standing in front of a door. This makes the person jump out of shot, and in no time he falls to the ground, just dead.
Making a YouTube video isn’t much different. You upload it, then let someone else watch it. However, if you accidentally kill somebody while filming yourself or another person, then you’ve got some serious problems. I’ve seen some really disturbing videos on YouTube, where people have been killed and so I wouldn’t advise looking at those.
Luckily, there’s a way to prevent that. The killer, who was later identified as a disgruntled ex-employee, made a YouTube video against his former employer. In it, he said some really distasteful things about the company, specifically mentioning the smell of dog urine, and apparently saying that he hated dogs. This turned out to be an actual news story, with interviews with witnesses and so on. The news reported that the ex-employee had called 911 to report that he had seen the police, and that the police were taking him away for questioning.
YouTube took down the video within hours, but not before hundreds of people saw it. Naturally, this disappointed the man in the video, who then made a second video. In this second video, he talked with the same witnesses, threatening to shoot them if they didn’t leave the hotel. He mentioned killing one of them and said he was going to kill more.
Police were notified and arrested the killer immediately after his outburst. He faces federal charges of making threats in interstate commerce and is expected to face jail time. This isn’t the first time someone has used YouTube as a platform to threaten or commit violence against an individual. YouTube has taken many videos offline due to the huge number of viewer complaints. This is actually part of their legal strategy; they know that their viewers are powerful and that they can potentially file lawsuits against anybody who uses the site to make threats.
Unfortunately, YouTube also allows anyone to share any information, no matter how disturbing or untrue it may be. This means that thousands upon thousands of people could be watching the killing of another, making jokes about it, posting it to their blogs, etc. I’m sure that lots of people feel very strongly about the victims in these cases, but it’s not hard to imagine many of them being upset by the behavior of the killer. It makes no sense at all, and YouTube has allowed people to use it to share their opinions.
We live in a world where people can share anything they want on almost any topic. It’s only a matter of a few seconds to share something inflammatory on Facebook or MySpace. If we live in a world where it’s OK to make threats, the Internet will become a much more violent place. Think about it: you don’t have to kill someone to get your opinion across. You just have to be careful what you say on YouTube.
