Yes, that's a lovely video of an imam peacefully restraining a crowd from exacting revenge on the man who had tried to murder them all, but I mean, come on.

Vertical video?

Seriously? Vertical? In that context?

I mean, I'm not trying to take sides here or anything but...

...vertical?

Life goes on, fark! Meanwhile we have an incident in Paris where a car hit into a police car and detonated. Greenlight one of those submissions, finally.

Here's the thing I find noteworthy about this attack versus the Manchester attack a few weeks before.

The Manchester attacker was identified within about a day of the attack, and within hours of identifying him, 22 of his family and friends were arrested. All of them were released a few days later without charges because none of them had anything to do with the attack.

With this attack, the identity of the attacker is still unknown, despite the fact that we have a video of him waving to the cameras as he was put into the police van. And despite eyewitness accounts that two other people were in the van the attacker was driving who fled the scene, none of his friends and associates were rounded up and arrested.

Everything I put on youtube is a vertical video, just to irritate people who have an irrational hate for them.  Enjoy.

Vertical videos are easier to take/hold steady with one hand.  I'd like to see an app that took it as a wide horizontal video even if taken vertically, as an option of course.  I'd be surprised if the camera hardware is asymmetrical, so it's probably all the same to the camera.

The problem isn't the video, it's the player. If YouTube had an adaptive aspect player instead of that goofy blurred shiat on the sides, people wouldn't care what aspect the damned thing was.

That we know of.  Remember, the UK is now by their own admission bit leery about putting out information about these sorts of events, since some of US can't keep our mouths shut.

Wrong, he's been identified. How do you think all outlets know that he's 48? Only British Police doesn't release the full name and other details to the public too fast. It was the same in Manchester. And we don't know if the police is right now rounding up anyone.
 
2017-06-19 11:42:00 AM  
Of course he was shielded from harm.

This person needs to be brought to justice. Glad to hear that a perpetrator wasn't killed at the scene--for once.

If he hasn't been identified, how do you know that none of his friends and associates were rounded up and arrested?  I'm not saying that they were, but I imagine that rounding up his associates would be difficult if they don't know who he is.

We like to attach politics to these attacks but it's just evil.  Evil doesn't care about your politics, gender, race, income, religion, etc.  Only way to check it is to be a good neighbor and be mindful of those who gravitate to the extremes and bring them back into the community.

Your memory is faulty.

2017 Manchester Attack occurred on May 22, 2017.

One day later, he was identified (see time stamp of article):

You are incorrect. Go outside and take two videos of you panning around, one vertical and one horizontal. Now watch them on your computer. Which one is easier to watch? When you shoot a vertical video, you have to make more rapid pans to record all of the action which produces a very jerky video.

The Manchester bomber was dead, on account of being a suicide bomber. This guy is alive, and so will face trial. Police often don't release the name of an accused because it can reduce the chance of a fair trial. Defence lawyers can say a huge amount of publicity would mean potential jurors are biased.
