One thing about human nature that never ceases make me sit and shake my head and that is .... The Mob Mentality.
These same people that get a sniff of apparent immoral ... ness ... hmmm ... are the same people that drink too much and scare and beat their women, take drugs, rape, kill and pillage then claim a moral high ground on the corpse of someone who got cornered for doing immoral things to others.
Paedophiles are the cockroaches of human society, I'm sure we all agree, but in order for someone to be designated a paedophile they need to have committed an act or acts that the law has designated unlawful and then been caught by the police, formally charged, trialled, then punished ... yes? ... well no, according to 'The Mob'.
Just like the judicial system The Mob has an equation to label someone as a paedophile. The difference is, this equation is ever changing.
For example, the Justice Equation looks something like: 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = Crime.
The Mob's: 1 + Fuck it, let's hang him! = Crime. This is why humans introduced a set of rules and people who had to nut this shit out. This is why not everyone has a badge and a gun and this is why the police have powers you don't.
Case in question:
Someone that resembles having paedophile habits was basically run out of town on YouTube. They are claiming a victory but as anyone will know that has watched even one episode of Law And Order paedophiles are professionals. If they smell attention they will drop their tools on the spot and run all the way off the radar just like a plane going down. One minute he's there blinking away, next minute, gone.
Your average person with a brain would consider the negatives of this. The lynch mob don't. They woot and carry on like they've won a victory against the horrors in the dark and there's a knight in shining armour metaphorically lubing up his right hand to jerk away on his ego.
Do you know what this bloke with paedophile tendencies did?. He deleted everything and is only inconvenienced by losing a collection of links to kids channels on YT....and he has learned ANOTHER lesson in staying off the radar.
Well done lynch mob, well done.
