Stinson Hunter style vigilante paedophile-hunting gangs increase - leading figures speak out
"LEADING figures from around the area have spoken out over the rise of vigilante paedophile [sic] hunting groups.
The group Dark Justice has been making headlines recently in Newcastle upon Tyne, by posing as 13-year-old girls to trick men into meeting with them.
By working with the police, they have been able to secure several prosecutions against paedophiles [sic].
The practice is not illegal, though some have questioned its morality while others have warned about the risks to the people involved and of jeopardising prosecutions."
