I've been reading JF for awhile, and i've only noticed a single post mentioning this.
Hopefully you know of the beheading video. If not, some links to enlighten:Radio Free Europe: Controversy Grows Around Russian Beheading VideoNY Times: Beheading and Shooting by Russian Neo-Nazis on Video
Okay. That done, on to the meat of the issue:
Gee, this looks like a screencap from the video:http://pics.livejournal.com/vik23/pic/0000q6tb/
Hosted right on LJ's own gallery service, no less.
His journal: http://vik23.livejournal.com
(plug that url into google's russian->english beta, and see what you get.)
Snagged and (badly)translated from here
(emphasis mine):As has been discovered, a suspect is a 23-year-old Victor Milkov, a student absentee office Adygeyskogo Technological University. He was the National Socialist Party of Russia, and to life earns painting orders. Mr Milkov blogging in "Living Magazine" (Livejournal?) by anyone "vik23." This web diary on August 12 has reference to the spot, and August 13 -- Party statement that it is the armed wing of the National Socialist Society (PDF), together known participate in the "Russian marches and disperse gay parades. Yesterday against Mr. Milkova a criminal case was opened under Article 282 of the Russian Criminal Code (incitement of ethnic hatred), which provides for punishment of up to five years' imprisonment.
...So he's being charged, and his content remains up, untouched? (I can understand the necessity of keeping evidence for prosecution; however, this doesn't necessarily require said evidence remain online
for all those hypothetical children to see. HELLO? MCFLY?)LJ interest search for "white power"
. Notice all the Russian-language comms. Plug those comm urls' into Google's R>E engine, and let the hate speech and racism flow forth. Where's the outrage? Where's the open letters, the petitions, and all the spotlight?
Oh, right. LJ News just announced back-to-school v-gifts, and gratuitously plugs the shit out of Diet Pepsi Max (even going as far as to offer journal and mood themes!) hoping that everyone will get distracted. Because nothing says "I love you" more than a virtual
diet pepsi max!
Dear LJ: Nice to know that stopping HP slash fanart, supporting anorexia, and chugging Pepsi's cock are more important than actually dealing with hardcore hate speech ToS violations
. It's not like anyone's died, right?
LJ/6A should just come right out and admit that they're being 'selective' about whom they choose to apply the rules to.
Crossposted to a few other comms; apologies if you see twice.I *really* wish i could install the russian text plugin, into my head. This language barrier crap needs to go.
