Facebook : Special Victims Unit

I assume that by now most of you have seen the footage circulating on facebook showing the psyhotic bastard abusing the little poodle in the name of 'training'.

This post is about the power of the internet and now it's social media networks. I first heard about this over the weekend about the footage that was spreading like wild fire across facebook. Yesterday he was identified with even folks accurately identifying him with descriptions of his home address, car he drives as well as the number plate.

Its was driven from Singapore's SPCA FB page HERE where an enraged public went into full investigation mode, by spreading the news, tracking down his girl friend who filmed the footage and to correctly identifying the culprit. The lengths and extent of this online investigation by the public is astounding. They matched the items like rings, photos, etc to fb pictures of the culprit and his girl friend on facebook. They even found a picture the woman had posted of another pet that she was proud could stand, and the list goes on.

The report now lies in the hands of Malaysian authorities. Lets see what these clowns do. It would be a great PR coup for them to make make an example of this clearly distrubed individual but let's see what happens.

If you're going to fuck with the world, its best not to have a facebook account. The world is watching it and when millions can be mobilized into action with the click of a mouse I guess we're looking at a whole new way of life.

I'm actually surprised this guy and his g/f is still in one piece. When the news broke that they've been identified I was sure I'd soon see news article with mention of their mangled bodies found in an oil palm plantation somewhere, mauled and then half eaten by someone's rottweiler.

Much restrain, the Malaysian public has...

well if you're following the saga that's now unfolding in the SIngapore SPCA, the girl friend and the idiot's respective facebook pages AND now some of our mainstream media, the guy has gone into hinding in johor, his friends are now starting a mini campaign to claim that he's not a bad person, the broke up with the girl a while back so she could have leaked the footage, etc etc.

There's a good soap opera in the making right here. I just want to know what the Malaysian authoroties are going to do. The idiots actually are calling for folks to come forward to identify the culprit when all the evidence is on the internet.

I hope they get the right guy and highlight him... Right now quite a few cases of mistaken identity going around...

Damn, guess he fits the standard 'chow ah beng' look. I foresee an anti climactice end to this.
