The Royal Canadian Kilted Facebook Vigilantes have struck once more. I made that name up by the way with heavy influence from Ren and Stimpy.
Anyway this time they’ve published the names of four teenage animal abusers…
In a case of vigilante justice, the identities of four teenage boys accused of killing a cat by putting it in a microwave oven in Camrose, Alta., were posted on a Facebook page on Sunday.
The names of the boys, who were charged with animal cruelty and other offences after allegedly breaking into a home on Dec. 29 and killing the cat, were quickly pulled from the website by police because the accused cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. The names had been posted on one of several group pages condemning the boys’ actions and threatening violence, said Sgt. Tony Thomsen.
Now while I think these scumbag animal abusers should be hung by a certain body part the Canadian Facebook Vigilantes have to understand that by posting the offenders name not only are they possibly impeding the investigation but they could be getting themselves in trouble as well.
Now if I was some kind of unscrupulous person I would remind the Canadian Facebook Vigilantes that the Youth Criminal Justice Act doesn’t affect Americans.
