The World’s Most Dangerous Weapon A Canamedia HD Production • 13 x 30’ minutes


INTRODUCTION

The World’s Most Dangerous Weapon This crime series focuses on the stories which use the 21st century’s most dangerous weapon to commit serious and deadly crimes – the internet! From major thefts and child pornography to terrorism and murder, these international crimes see no borders. Now more than ever, there’s a need to police the “world wide web”. We’ll follow the men and women of international enforcement agencies that spend their lives policing this cyber world.

In our post-modern digital society, where instantaneous communication and the unprecedented power to assemble, store, exchange, and manipulate information spawned the social network revolution, the fundamentals of crime remain unaltered - or are they? The eternal criminal motives – greed, anger, lust, and revenge – have not changed since the beginning of time. It is access to the vast array of digital tools created by the relentless forces of 21st century technology that have profoundly reshaped the modern understanding of crime. This series explores how digital technology has driven crime in new and disturbing directions. This 13 part series challenges the assumption that crime is simply a socioeconomic problem, where the desperate and hopeless poor or others on society’s margins usually become the convicted. This series encourages our hyper-networked ‘global village’ to face the long term social and criminal law consequences that technology has unleashed. Every episode is based on an actual decided case, expert opinion testimonials, trial transcripts, written submissions filed, and actual court exhibits. These are real cases with real consequences.
