New trend in crime prevention

Today's most entertaining news, from the AP:

"Man accused of posting sex assault live on Web

PHOENIX – Authorities in Arizona say a man has been accused of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman and broadcasting it live on the Internet.

A statement filed in court in Phoenix says 20-year-old Jonathan Richard Hock was arrested Monday on charges of sexual assault, kidnapping and taking a surreptitious photo.

The court document said Hock set up a computer Web camera and sexually assaulted the 20-year-old woman in her bedroom in February while she was unconscious from drinking alcohol.

Police said in the court document that the video was watched repeatedly until the Web site where it was posted removed it. It said the Web site service gave a copy of the video to police.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office didn't respond to a request to interview Hock."

Usually people tape themselves doing things they're proud of. Was Mr. Hock proud of the fact that he was so hard up the only way he could get any action was with a sleeping woman?

Let's hope this signals the dawn of a new age, where criminals tape themselves in the act and then upload their tapes onto the internet. It would certainly make police work much easier.
