Anti-Gay 'Occupy Pedophilia' Group Leader Sentenced To Russian Penal Colony
The good news? Maxim Martsinkevich, the leader of the Russian anti-gay vigilante group "Occupy Pedophilia" who we've seen torture gay youth on camera, has been convicted and sentenced.
The bad news? He's only being sentenced to five years in a Russian penal colony and the videos of the abuse weren't even used by the prosecution in the case.
Maxim Sergeyevich Martsinkevich was convicted of inciting and fomenting cases of extremism by posting videos on the “Vkontakte” (VK.com) social network that contained racial slurs and extremist opinions on Russia’s state of the union,reports Interfax. Videos containing anti-gay statements and abuse were not included in the prosecutor’s case against him, however.
Martsinkevich appears in many of the videos, and is often seen forcibly shaving the victims’ heads in reverse mohawk hairstyles, painting rainbow flags in the shaven areas, forcing the victims to perform sex acts with objects, pouring urine on them, and forcing them to make self-denigrating statements to the camera.
It sounds like prosecutors were bizarrely selective in the evidence that they chose to use to build their case against Martsinkevich.
