A battering took place in Eindhoven in the beginning of 2013, a group of guys hit on an innocent young man. This incident was captured by street webcams. The Public Prosecutions Department in Brabant decided to publish this footage online, in an attempt to identify the suspects, which rapidly happend. Not only the detection was 'successful' because of the internet, also the evaluation and judgement were evolving through social media. In addition, there were several discussions started on the basis of this case. Such as the role and the use of the Public Prosecution, also on virtual field. And whether is was good to give these guys a shortening on there punishment after the virtual pillory.
I did the editorial design and research on the theme: the impact of social media on law. This by a large-scale research on similar cases, the law, and by interviews with Ernst Pols and Diederik Greive (press officers of the Public Prosecution), Freddy Mols (lawyer of the main suspect in the case), Hugo Nieuwenhuizen (lawyer of an other suspect in the case) and Bart Schermer (lecturer at eLaw@Leiden).
