Letzgo Hunting and the dangers of paedophile vigilantism | David Wilson

PUBLISHED April 22, 2013

There are a number of lenses through which to view the activities of Letzgo Hunting ? the group of six mums and dads, led by "Scumm Buster" ? who have seemingly helped police to arrest seven paedophiles, who had allegedly been attempting to groom children online and then arranging to meet them. Instead of meeting an underage child, the alleged paedophile met with Scumm Buster and his (I am presuming that this is indeed a man) associates, who had been posing as children online, and who were now armed with accusations, a "dossier of evidence" and a video camera.
