YouTube video of man blasting couch with rifle shown at weapons trial YouTube videos of a Victoria man blasting a couch with an assault rifle in the woods near Jordan River were entered as evidence in a trial yesterday in B.C. Supreme Court. The showing of "AR-15 Makes Swiss Cheese Out of a Couch" is the first time the Crown in B.C. has used YouTube videos to prove a number of allegations, prosecutor Nils Jensen told Justice Robert Metzger in his opening statement. The video has been removed from YouTube. Darcie Kate McNeill and Brian Lynn Morrison are charged with a number of prohibited and dangerous weapons offences. These include use of a prohibited weapon in a careless manner near Jordan River in 2007 and possession of a loaded Colt AR-15 rifle -- the equivalent of an M16 assault rifle -- without a licence or registration certificate. The offences are alleged to have taken place between Oct. 31 and Nov. 7, 2007. McNeill, 29, and Morrison, 37, who is in custody, are also charged with possession of stolen property under $5,000. McNeill and Morrison laughed several times as Jensen outlined the Crown's case. Jensen, however, was not amused. "The accused Morrison is not a man who plays with toys. The weapons he uses are real and menacing," he said. On Dec. 14, 2007, Victoria police raided a Collinson Street apartment where McNeill and Morrison lived, searching for drugs and weapons. Police seized four computers. Const. Bob Elder, a computer forensics expert, found YouTube videos of Morrison using an AR-15 assault rifle on one laptop. Elder also found photographs of Morrison with the AR-15, a Mac-10 rifle and another weapon. One video, allegedly shot by McNeill, shows Morrison doing an infomercial with the Mac-10. "He appears to be demonstrating it, talking about the silencer," said Jensen. Elder, who testified yesterday afternoon, showed court a video titled "Emptying the AR-15 clip" which, according to the Crown, shows Morrison wearing a black baseball cap and camouflage clothing while firing off the assault rifle Rambo-style. In "AR-15 Makes Swiss Cheese Out of a Couch," Morrison inspects an abandoned couch, in a wooded area near a logging road, for bullet holes. "It's so powerful it goes right through everything," he tells the camera. After watching the video, police circulated information about the wooded area, the logging road and the abandoned couch. Victoria police Const. Mark Buerfeind took up the challenge of finding the area on his own time. Buerfeind, who is familiar with Island logging roads, looked around Jordan River and found the couch. Soon after, Buerfeind returned to the area with forensic identification officer Jonathan Sheldan, who took samples of the couch and bullets from the trees. Sheldan also found an empty cartridge. On Jan. 11, 2008, Victoria police searched a car outside Morrison's apartment and found a speaker box in the trunk. "When they took the speakers out and the cotton batting out, lo and behold, there's an AR-15," said Jensen. The speaker box can be seen in the background of homemade pornographic videos made by Morrison and McNeill, said the prosecutor. "And that connects the accused to the weapon."
