Friends — I beg of you — TURN OFF SHARING for the Socialcam app on Facebook.
Socialcam is a feed of user-generated videos. Just by clicking on a Socialcam link in Facebook and accepting their app, every Socialcam video you watch from then on is shared to your Facebook friends automatically. The content is questionable, the titles of the videos are often salacious, and the images it posts in your timeline can be downright embarrassing.
Socialcam offers user-generated video and popular videos from other sites like YouTube. The videos that appear in your Facebook feed are not from a media company vetting the videos, editing them, or (at the very least) showing some scruples about titling the offerings correctly.
Many of the videos are what the industry refers to as click-bait or link-bait: outrageously titled pieces that don’t exactly deliver what the titles imply. To capture users’ interest, the videos are titled in a seriously provocative manner, like: “Officer vs. Gangsta Thug in Brawl,” “How to Steal 23 MacBook Pros, 14 iPhones, and 9 iPods In 31 Seconds,” and “Toyota Supra Drifting Unbuttons A Girl’s Shirt.” (more…)

Video of the Israeli-sponsored training programs have been leaked to the web (like the video here). The fact that a nation would engage in this type of behavior speaks volumes about the nature of the Zionist state.

A rapper who boasted on Twitter about beating a murder rap is a violent drug kingpin who flooded Brooklyn’s Gowanus Houses with crack and heroin, the feds said Wednesday. Ronald (Ra Diggs) Herron, charged with eight others in a federal indictment, provided prosecutors with a wealth of incriminating evidence in his YouTube videos and in his Twitter musings.
He tweeted that he has “5000 n—– with them lorcins (handguns) ready to turn the pigs kids into orphins,” federal court papers reveal. The videos depict the ex-con wearing body armor and brazenly firing guns at a target range. In them, he boasts he ordered a shooting from his hospital bed and “beat a body” – a reference to his 2002 murder after two witnesses refused to testify against him after they were threatened.
Herron warned agains people “snitching” and referenced a murder in the Gowanus Houses housing project, where the victim reportedly helped authorities, Assistant U.S. Attorneys Shreve Ariail and Carter Burwell said. Herron, 28, was arrested by NYPD detectives early Tuesday outside Club Amnesia in Chelsea. (more…)
