    I think it's extremely offensive behavior. Is that entered in a competition?

    Do such competition exist? I don t know. In any case, a friend gave that piece to me.

    If they are having a contest, I think they're promoting illegal acts, regardless of what they claim.

    I find the name of the site quite ironic, if you look at the apparent maturity of its members.

    The plane video is pretty amazing though (And I checked into it, and both crew members made it out alive, hooray!)

    Is it not protected by the U.S constitution?

    Assault is not protected by the US Constitution.

    They rate all their clips so you can view a 'most popular clips', its not a competition, just a website collecting submissions.

    Well, that is just ridiculous. The website didn t assault anyone. It just distribute video clips. They have no control over what is on the tape.

    Oh the video.

    Well you are promoting violence and the law seems to put distributors as an accountalbe party. They control the videos they distribute. It would be like if Disney started selling pornography without a rating. If some kid gets it, thats illegal and they woudl be subject to prosecution.

    The site probably isn't breaking the law by posting the clip, unless they can be proven to have caused the instigation of the assault, possibly by being a place to post the clip. Why have someone there with a camera to record it unless there's a place to post it? I do think it's irresponsible of them to post it and to provide a place for such ignorance.

    I think there is a porn links on that site, but i don t think that video or other videos like it are pornographic. There are perhaps laws that prohibit the distribution of pornographic material, but there are no similar or analogist laws for the distribution of such videos. The analogy cannot be made.

    I believe there are. A film distributor was arrested for doing this ... in july or so here in Fresno, CA. They had videos of various gang activities (illegal weapons, fighting, drug dealing) and they got the distributor.

    ...... people have recorded executions and drug dealings before. I'm not sure what your logic is here. Just because someone thinks doing something is legal doesnt mean that it is legal...

    If this website allowed free posting, they wouldn't be accountable but since this website looks like its regulated and that they take ownership of videos, i suspect they would be accountable.

    I meant that having an open contest for videos of illegal acts could end up rewarding people for committing crimes. That doesn't appear to be what they're doing anyway.
