Let law hunt down perverts, not Letz Go Hunting

By Lindy McDowell

Most people would feel that the public 'outing' of paedophiles can only be a good thing. But is Letz Go Hunting a vigilante step too far? I always wonder a bit about the vigilante gene that impels some people (mainly male) to offer their services as judge, jury and vice squad.

True, it could be argued that if the authorities were doing their jobs properly there would be no need for the likes of this group who've posted on YouTube film of men they've lured to meetings supposedly with underage girls.

But there's a right way and a very wrong way of doing these things. And no matter how much we all loathe their quarry, best to let the police do the hunting.
