Video helps solve torture case

Technology continues to help get things right. You see it with instant replay in sports, now you are seeing it with online videos solving cases. On Monday an Egyptian court convicted two police officers and sentenced them to three years in prison for torturing a bus driver after a video of the abuse was posted on the Internet.

Without the Internet video, the officers, who sexually abused Emad El-Kabir, 22, and filmed the act on a cell phone, may have never been convicted.

Luckily for El-Kabir earlier this month Egyptian bloggers posted a video online, which eventually was available on YouTube, showing a man naked from the waist down being beaten with a stick.

The victim, El-Kabir, was elated when he heard the two officers were sentenced

"God is great! Thank God!" shouted el-Kabir. "I regained my right. I don't want anything more than that."
