London 2012 gets a second Nazi salute and monkey chants in Super Hi-Vision Ultra HD

RACISM at London 2012! The Evening Standard, spots a fan of Lithuania’s basketballers in the stands giving what might be a Nazi salute into the faces of two black stewards. This would be the second of the Games. Later, in Lithuania’s  72-53 win over Nigeria, the Baltic Nazis booed the blacks.

Undercover police infiltrated the crowd and seized the man during the game between Lithuania and Nigeria at the basketball arena in the Olympic Park.

One witness reported hearing monkey chanting from a group of Lithuania supporters.

A 36-year-old has been arrested “on suspicion of a racially aggravated public-order offence”.

One witness and a raised arm is enough to secure a conviction? Racism on twitter is so much easier to prove. Still, there is hope. With Super Hi-Vision Ultra HD you need never miss a racist moment again:

Developed by NHK, Super Hi-Vision is an Ultra High Definition television formatcombining images 16 times the resolution of High Definition television with a 22.2 multichannel surround sound. Experienced on a big screen, the effect is of feeling like actually being at an event.

The London 2012 Olympics will be the first time this ground-breaking technology will be used to deliver exceptional quality content in the UK, so I’m extremely excited that you will be able to experience it for the very first time.

The technology is “the closest thing to actually being there“. No commentary. Just the sounds and sights of the show. One day you’ll be able to hone in on a section of the action on the pitch or in the crowd.

Expect mass arrests to follow…
