A brief history of trolls and the dismal failure of The Telegraph's campaign: ABC News Article

A brief history of trolls and the dismal failure of The Telegraph's campaign: ABC News Article | Surveillance Studies | Scoop.it

The Daily Telegraph's stunningly-hypocritical Stop the Trolls campaign has got off to a pitiful start despite featuring on the front page of Wednesday's newspaper and being mentioned across the mainstream media and online. But the big issue appears to be that politicians and mainstream media appear not to know know what trolling really is and are subsequently equating all of it with cyber bullying, which it isn't.

At the time of writing the petition was well short of 1000 signatures (672 on Friday afternoon and 702 this morning) with the sign-up rate slowing to a crawl with just 10 new people in the past several hours - a total flop for a forced viral campaign. This despite some exaggerated media coverage equating trolls with cyber bullies.

What's more, one has to question how informed and committed to the cause the sign-ups really are.

Left to die: our police custody crisis: ABC News Article

Left to die: our police custody crisis: ABC News Article | Surveillance Studies | Scoop.it

By Greg Barns
Australia has a problem with the way in which we deal with vulnerable people in custody, it is time to formulate a national strategy to tackle what must be termed a crisis, writes Greg Barns.

When heavily intoxicated Kwementyaye Briscoe, a 27-year-old Aboriginal man, was dragged into a police cell in Alice Springs in January this year he was literally left to die.

According to Northern Territory Coroner Greg Cavanagh who handed down his findings on this latest death in custody yesterday, officers did not check on Mr Briscoe for two hours, and despite other prisoners calling for police help after hearing Mr Briscoe in a distressed state, no-one came to his rescue.

Mr Cavanagh was clearly pointing to a culture problem in the Northern Territory Police Service when he remarked of Mr Briscoe's death that in his view "the catalogue of errors is so extensive and involves so many police officers of various rank as to suggest mismanagement for a period of time by police command at a level higher than just local."

No heads to roll after death in custody: ABC News Article | Surveillance Studies | Scoop.it

he Northern Territory Government says the Police Commissioner's job is safe despite heavy criticism of the police following an Aboriginal death in custody.

On Monday coroner Greg Cavanagh found Kwementyaye Briscoe, 27, died in the Alice Springs watch house through a combination of police error, intoxication and asphyxiation.

Mr Cavanagh said the care provided by police was completely inadequate to meet Mr Briscoe's medical needs and the lack of care resulted in his death.
