Nigerians Launch #EndSARS Campaign On Social Media

Some Concerned Nigerians have launched a campaign to scrap Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on social media. The move, according to some posts on the micro-blogging site, Twitter monitored by our reporter, was initiated due to alleged extrajudicial killings carried out by SARS officials.

Some of the Twitter users accused the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of carrying out extra-judicial killings and torture of innocent Nigerian citizens. The #EndSARS campaign is coming at the time the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is giving Nigerians an opportunity to share their experience with SARS operatives.

The Police #PCRRU tweeted: “Do you have any complaints about your contact with SARS? You don’t need to know their names, all we need you to provide are details of the occurrence (action/act) with DATE, TIME & PLACE. Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) #BailisFree #NoToImpunity. Please share this message”.

Apparently displeased with the conduct of most of the SARS operatives, Nigerians took to Twitter to call for an end of the department of the force. Here are some tweets from the victims.

Call a spade a spade. SARS is a vigilante group. A group of nitwits. A cult. A band of miscreants. A killing machine. #EndSARS. — Vidar (@onuohadave) December 2, 2017

SARS:: Special Advanced Robbery Squad. Pass it on. #EndSARS — Mr. Jack Robinson (@jackdre02) December 2, 2017

SARS don’t care about criminals, all they do is target young boys with good phones, laptops, cars. If you have tattoo on your body, forget it only God will save you from them. They beat/harass/extort citizens at will, They are legal criminals.#EndSARS #ScrapSARS 🙏 — Osas Cruz (@OsasCruz) December 2, 2017

A lot of Nigerians wouldn’t mind if BH kills ONLY policemen, SARS and soldiers. The kind of brutality you get at the hands of these law enforcement rogues crushes the humanity and empathy in you. They should meet their match. #ENDSARS — Kelvin Odanz (@KelvinOdanz) December 2, 2017

SARS don’t have respect for humanity! SARS kill and harass innocent young & old people! SARS invade phone privacy of young boys without warrant! SARS think they are above the law and kill anyhow! SARS are wild animals! SARS are the criminals!#EndSARS today! Enough is enough!! — Daddy CHO (@Chidubem__O) December 2, 2017

I don’t know about you but whenever I see SARS anywhere in Nigeria, I don’t feel safe. I instantly regret going out looking too good cos that’s a step close to getting arrased by them.#EndSARS — Made In Ibadan (@UrbanCulture06) December 2, 2017

If you have no experience with SARS officials, you won’t understand this daily outcry. Once you have an iPhone, drive a car, have beards, YOU WILL PAY! #EndSARS now! 😡 — Series Abíọdún࿐ (@EngrSeries) December 2, 2017

Angry Nigerian Youths Shut Down Twitter With The Hashtag #EndSARS (Pics)

Treating everyone as a suspect is not a way to solve crimes. If it worked, Nigeria would be crime free but it isn’t. This method of going about police business often leads to intimidation, extortion and harassment.
Nigerian youths suffer the most under the Nigeria Police Force’s gestapo like style of doing business. Young Nigerians with dreadlocks and tattoos are wrongly profiled as Internet fraudsters. They are arrested with no evidence and locked up in some cases.
It is so bad now that the police unit known as the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) go about intimidating and extorting money from young Nigerians. They arrested with no proof or evidence that they are cultists or fraudsters.

Angry youths on twitter shares their experience.

Facebook’s New Suicide Detection A.I., Could Put Innocent People Behind Bars

Imagine police knocking on your door because you posted a ‘troubling comment’ on a social media website.

Imagine a judge forcing you to be jailed, sorry I meant hospitalized, because a computer program found your comment(s) ‘troubling’.

You can stop imagining, this is really happening.

A recent TechCrunch article warns that Facebook’s “Proactive Detection” artificial intelligence (A.I.) will use pattern recognition to contact first responders. The A.I. will contact first responders, if they deem a person’s comment[s] to have troubling suicidal thoughts.

Facebook also will use AI to prioritize particularly risky or urgent user reports so they’re more quickly addressed by moderators, and tools to instantly surface local language resources and first-responder contact info. (Source)

A private corporation deciding who goes to jail? What could possibly go wrong?

Facebook’s A.I. automatically contacts law enforcement 

Facebook is using pattern recognition and moderators to contact law enforcement.

Facebook is ‘using pattern recognition to detect posts or live videos where someone might be expressing thoughts of suicide, and to help respond to reports faster.’

Dedicating more reviewers from our Community Operations team to review reports of suicide or self harm. (Source)

Facebook admits that they have asked the police to conduct more than ONE HUNDRED wellness checks on people.

Over the last month, we’ve worked with first responders on over 100 wellness checks based on reports we received via our proactive detection efforts. This is in addition to reports we received from people in the Facebook community. (Source)

Why are police conducting wellness checks for Facebook? Are private corporations running police departments? 

Not only do social media users have to worry about a spying A.I. but now they have to worry about thousands of spying Facebook ‘Community Operations’ people who are all to willing to call the police.

Our Community Operations team includes thousands of people around the world who review reports about content on Facebook…our team reviews reported posts, videos and live streams. This ensures we can get the right resources to people in distress and, where appropriate, we can more quickly alert first responders. (Source)

Should we trust pattern recognition to determine who gets hospitalized or arrested?

Pattern recognition is junk science

A 2010, CBS News article warns that pattern recognition and human behavior is junk science. The article shows, how companies use nine rules to convince law enforcement that pattern recognition is accurate.

A 2016, Forbes article used words like ‘nonsense, far-fetched, contrived and smoke and mirrors’ to describe pattern recognition and human behavior.

Cookie-cutter ratios, even if scientifically derived, do more harm than good. Every person is different. Engagement is an individual and unique phenomenon. We are not widgets, nor do we conform to widget formulas. (Source)

Who cares, if pattern recognition is junk science right? At least Facebook is trying to save lives.

Wrong.

Using an A.I. to determine who might need to be hospitalized or incarcerated can and will be abused.

Cameroon’s Eto’o Denies Saving ‘Slaves’ From Libya (Pics)

People on social media are sharing photos appearing to show migrants returning home from Libya after being released from slavery.

However, the top image dates back at least a year and shows migrants leaving Libya for Burkina Faso

Football star Samuel Eto’o has denied claims that he personally donated money or purchased plane tickets for Cameroonian migrants so they could return home.

In a post on his Facebook page, he said “this rumour is completely baseless”.

He urged his followers to act to prevent the terrible plight of migrants rather than react to it, adding that “among the victims will be people who we’ve lived alongside at some point”.
