    OKC jailers face cruelty charge; playing Baby Shark on loop is inhuman, prosecutor says

    https://tulsaworld.com/news/state-an...6b9d67ab5.html

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Two former detention officers and their supervisor were charged Monday after an investigation found inmates at the Oklahoma County jail were forced to listen to the popular children's song, "Baby Shark," on a loop at loud volumes for extended periods of time.

    At least four inmates were subjected to the "inhuman" discipline in an attorney visitation room of the jail last November and December, according to the charge. The inmates was forced to stand the entire time, hands cuffed behind them and secured to the wall, the investigation found.

    Charged were Gregory Cornell Butler Jr., 21, of Edmond; Christian Charles Miles, 21, of Oklahoma City; and Christopher Raymond Hendershott, 50, of Wellston.

    District Attorney David Prater charged them with misdemeanor counts of cruelty to a prisoner and conspiracy.

    'Baby Shark' Is Now the Most-viewed Youtube Video of All Time

    After years of uncertainty, the day we’ve been waiting for has finally come. A day that will live in infamy.

    That’s right — “Baby Shark” is officially the most-viewed video on YouTube.

    According to Hypebeast, PINKFONG’s earworm hit, “Baby Shark,” has officially surpassed “Despacito,” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber, as the most-viewed video on YouTube of all time. It just hit over seven billion views at the end of October.

    At the time of writing this article, the video has 7,042,720,458 views, while Fonsi’s successful hit has 7,038,330,283. It should be noted that “Despacito” was also considered the song of the summer in 2017, according to TIME.

    Now that the mantle has been passed, it’s clear that we all now know what parents of young children have been doing since the first lockdowns in March.

    “Baby Shark” began as a children’s song by Smart Study, a company for younger audiences in South Korea, in November 2015, according to Hypebeast, though its origins (including when it was first written) are unclear. After success in its native country, the song was translated to English in 2016 and blew up as a hit worldwide. Even though the song is less than 90 seconds, it spawned an extensive portfolio of branded merchandise, books, and even a live tour, The Guardian reported.
    Maybe because they were playing the song via YT at the jail?
