Which kind of information can a video of murders can give you than a report about it can not ?

The video are not made to inform but to exhibit.

I do not see how information is censored by not seeing a video of a murdered staging himself in the act of murdering. Browsing Internet One can get a wide coverage of what happened.

You trust the "authorities" to tell you the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I do not. I expect them to lie when it pleases them. History is on my side. Faith is on yours.

Someone might recognize a face, voice or area and be able stop the murder or someone who can, or at least provide enough identification that the perp can be stopped before the next killing. Its called out-sourcing. The police are not a replacement for the eyes and ears of the whole world.

Silicon Valley bubble dwellers have created a monster beyond their control for their profit which the rest of us have to live with.

To all the right wing terrorists: It is stupid to target Jewish people. They are not your problem and pose no threat. The fact that you keep focusing on them shows how utterly ignorant you are.

In Germany just before Hitler took power a popular saying was "The Enemy is on the Right!" The many who ignored this warning paid with their lives and today the seductive siren-call of fascism suggests that people are fated to repeat the mistakes of the past.

Not sure what you are suggesting, but it seems as though you are offering a very narrow interpretation of history to fit a modern narrative. Along the lines of those who cite Hitler's vegetarianism.

It's not that hard to pick out the fascists. They are the ones who believe their opposition is evil, and proudly resort to violence and intimidation to get their way.

Rightwing nutters like this one in Halle/Germany are emboldened by rightwing talkers like Trump and his ilk who makes them feel safe to live out their irrational hatred by violent means. It is further fueled by judges like that one which turned down Renate Künast's request to prosecute hate-mailers who called her names which would get moderated here.

Germany has a problem but it is not the refugees who are responsible.

The enemy IS on the right!

The enemy IS on the right!

There is a problem in Europe with extremism. The main issues are Islamist extremism and far right extremism.

Both need to be addressed honestly.

I kinda agree: there is a relative anti-Semitic problem in (Western) Europe. Relative to the past 20 years.

If you step back, and look at it from a historical perspective, there has never been a better time to be a Jew living in Western Europe. Never.

So you expect video to be a reliable source of information ? That is is quite a big joke.

Anybody which ever watched a movie can understand how low is a video value. If you are not on site (and some kind of foreseer. mind reader and so on) you have not choice but to deal with all the information you can get and summun it to find the truth (better learn german (and Italian, spanish, french, ...) on this one). The "" saw a video" has as much value in this day and age than what the average FOAF, thought I wonder if the FOAF as not more value because you can track it to some point.

Tell that to the woman who was just tracked down and sexually assaulted by a guy who found her local train station via a reflection in her eye in a picture. A video is essentially a bunch of pictures. Of course now I probably made you think ALL pictures and videos should be banned for public safety (sigh). If it saves just one life.....(eyeroll).

I am really not sure where you think the "authorities" get their information. You don't think some of it comes from these videos? Seriously?

I am really not sure where you think the "authorities" get their information.

Did not you say before than "authorities" were not reliable so you wanted the video ?

I remember you, we are talking about the fact than you consider censorship of information, the non display of a video of a murderer exhibiting his act of murdering people.

You can get information without seeing a video and a video is not by essence a reliable source of information (it can be faked, it can be edited, it can only show what was filmed, perception can be oriented, ...).
