So full of conviction, they took down the original post, with all its comments ... and posted this, as though its faulty logic, false rationalisations and back-peddling (and those of the commenting goons) changes anything ...
Unprincipled, slimey, barbaric, moronic, cowards.

Police fail to condemn anti-paedophile [sic] vigilantes despite victim suicide
"Police fail to condemn anti-paedophile [sic] vigilante group despite suicide of innocent man
Careful what you wish for: YOU could be next
Leicestershire police have refused to condemn an anti-paedophile [sic] vigilante group that calls itself ‘Letzgo Hunting’, despite the fact that a victim of the group who had not even been charged by police later committed suicide.
It is believed that the man who hanged himself could have been driven to suicide by the potential stigma of the accusation that he was a paedophile and the fact that Letzgo Hunting publishes videos of its confrontations online.
Disgracefully, although the Coroner in the case recorded a verdict of suicide, no mention at all of Letzgo Hunting was made at the inquest."

Anti-paedophile [sic] vigilante group say they won't stop their work despite a man's death."
"The self-styled paedophile [sic] vigilante group 'Letzgo Hunting' tell the programme they won't change their methods after reports that a man killed himself after being pursued by the group.
The Leicester-based parents pose online as children to try to lure adults they suspect of being abusers into arranging a meeting. When their targets turn up, they're challenged by a team of adults equipped with video cameras.
We hear from the self styled leader of the group and from the former head of the The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre."
