California man behind anti-Muslim film arrested on probation violation
 
Anyone remember the scene from Porky's where the cop takes out his nightstick, bashes a headlight, then says, "Broken headlight. That's a $50 fine in Seward County."?...

Well the sh*t just got real...:mad

California man behind anti-Muslim film arrested on probation violation

Quote:

The California man behind a crudely produced anti-Islamic video posted to YouTube that has inflamed parts of the Middle East was arrested for violating terms of his probation, authorities said Thursday.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was convicted in 2010 for federal check and sentenced to 21 months in prison. Under terms of his probation, he was not allowed to use computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.

Nakoula was arrested after federal probation officials determined he violated the terms of his supervised release, said Thomas Mrozek U.S. Attorney’s spokesman in Los Angeles.

A U.S. District Court hearing was scheduled for Nakoula on Thursday afternoon. It was closed to media and the public.

Protests have erupted around the Middle East over a 14-minute trailer for “Innocence of Muslims,” which depicts Muhammad as a womanizer, religious fraud and child molester. Though the trailer was posted to YouTube in July, the violence didn’t break out until Sept. 11 and has spread since, killing dozens.

Nakoula, a Christian originally from Egypt, went into hiding after he was identified as the man behind the trailer.
Anyone besides the willfully ignorant and useful idiots believe that's what he was arrested for?...:no :mad

He broke the terms of his violation. End of story.

However, I do see your point. If this man would have used his computer to upload videos of cats being mischievous around the house on Youtube, I doubt this would have been an issue, though could have.

The man was ignorant for creating a video of this nature, knowing it would make headlines, when he knew he was on probation and part of his probation terms stated he was not allowed to use the internet.

The video had been out since July, it made no headlines until obama used it as an excuse to cover his failure in Libya and Egypt. Had obama not accused a video no one saw to cover his ass the man would not have been arrested. And, it is also funny, (suspicious) that the police were at his door within hours of obama accusing him and his video for causing the problems.

Something stinks here and it ain't the video. :mad

Actually the video made headlines before Obama mentioned it. I was hearing about it on the news as some blamed it for the consulate incident before Obama even opened his mouth.

post a link.

The White House was using the video almost from the start, so I have to see what news agency was saying an unknown video was the cause of the attacks.

But the fact that the video was NOT the reason for the attacks was also made before the attacks even happened...

But Obama still clung on to the lie until the facts got in the way too much...:yes :mad

Usually I don't go in for this sort of thinking, but I find myself wondering if this guy had a record and prohibition against using the Internet before this episode, or if his past has been "altered."

That said, no matter how poor the quality of the video, I really don't think anyone should be called ignorant for publishing that a murdering pedophile was a murdering pedophile.

It is ignorant when you are on probation and not allowed to use the internet.

This reminds me of a couple of cops talking to a guy who owns a restaurant...

Cop - So you're not going to cooperate with us?

Restaurant owner - Nope...I have my legal rights.

Cop - OK...I'll make a phone call to the License & Inspections Department and they'll stop by tomorrow to see if your business is up to code...

He wasn't arrested for using the internet. He was arrested for using an alias when he made the video.
