Virtual Terrorist Arrested in Canada

19 January 2010
 

According to Canada Torontosun, a college student named Zameer Zahid was arrested by Barrie police for posting his photos on his Facebook page in which he posts with guns and threatens to shoot himself in the mirror.

The leading police investigator told the court that at least three female students he interviewed appeared to be very upset over the photos to the point that “they were crying”. And one particular faint hearted girl “was so afraid” that “she was freaking out.”

“What did you think when you read it?” Crown attorney Mary Ann Alexander asked the supposedly stronger-hearted anti-online terrorism hero.

“To tell you the truth, it was disturbing,” said the police investigator.

“Did you find anything humorous about it?” the Crown kept probe.

“Absolutely not, Your Honour” the police investigator returned sternly. “It put the police, including myself, in the state of needing to act. We needed to protect the citizens of Barrie.”

And immediate action they did take. Several police officers laid siege over the school and arrested the student when he arrived for a 5 p.m. class. It is said that the virtual terrorist had an odour of alcohol on his breath and his breathalyzer test gave readings of .165 and .168, way above the legal limit.

It seems Zahid is not always clear-minded and probably doesn’t know what he is doing from time to time. But so what, whether the crime is committed in virtual world or by a mentally unsound fella, temporary or permanent, Canada’ Law cannot be compromised.

The trial is said to be set for one more day on Jan. 28, 2010.

据多轮多太阳报一月15日报道,一年多前八瑞地区的一大学生因将自己做举枪射击状的照片贴到社交网站Facebook上而于去年11月12日被加拿大警方逮捕。

一警长在法庭上作证时说,至少有三名女学生告诉他该男生的射击写真让他们害怕,并声称“她们都怕得大哭大叫呢,其中一位差点就没发疯。”

女法官妈理·阿理亲切地问警长:“那你看到这张照片的时候你是什么感觉?”

警长回:“告诉你实话吧,我连饭也吃不下,觉也睡不着了涅。”

妈理·阿理继续启发警长:“那你有没有觉得这些照片其实很有趣呢?”

警长斩钉截铁地回:“绝对没有,只有让我和我的警察弟兄们痛感我们必须马上行动起来保护八瑞民众的安全。

据称如此痛感之下几位警官立即出动监视该所学院,并在当日下午5点左右逮捕了来上课的该名虚拟枪手。据说该疑似恐怖分子当时酒气冲天,看来他的神志并不是一直很清醒的。不过,虚拟犯法就是虚拟犯法,别说他拍照时是喝醉了,哪怕他当时就是犯精神病了,该判刑还得判刑,加拿大警察和法官可不是吃素的。

下一次庭审定于一月28日举行。
