    Any bullies here who live nearby to show those fuckers that soccer kicks are just not cool?

    I want others to be with them whenever they are outside, showing them what they think about this bullshit.

    That is strange, because I see Galactus.

    And a couple of Asian kids screaming as I, wearing Errol Flynn's 1938 Robin Hood costume, follow them through dark alleys, holding a tazer and a baseball bat.

    Sounds like a plan... wait, why would they be Asian?

    EDIT: Well, looking at the video again and the names posted cleared that up for me.

The most recent and high profile example being Christopher Jeffries who the tabloid decided was guility of the murder of Joanne Yates. They libelled him, an innocent man, so spectacularly he won enormous damages from the tabloids because he was totally and utterly innocent.

    Vincent Tabak was the murderer and yet the tabloids accused Jeffries of being a pervert, paedophile and basically every kind of deviant under the sun. The invented a history of sexual abuse of pupils, he was a teacher, and they contrived to invent a whole history of him as a predatory sexual menace.

    So I don't trust the press when the malign someone's character unless there is incontrovertible proof and no one should accept random internet trolls declaring someone to be evil and posting their details. That's disgusting, because those people who post details have no accountability or standards.

    And if the national press of a 1st world country like Britain can fail so spectacularly a basement dweller posting on 4chan is going to be much worse.

    No, I was not saying it was good but I just meant I saw it happen in the US. We don't have that in Germany.

    Didn't think you were condoning it, just contextualizing why I don't think its ever justified.

    I didn't know that this was the case in the UK as well. Need to talk about that with my friends in the UK :)

    I am, in fact, condoning it.

    Especially with kids.

    If this video hadn't been leaked, supposedly because they wanted to brag, what would have happened to them? Nothing. And without the incoming public harassment, they could have hidden this bestiality without making it a big deal.

    Sorry, the kid that kicks somebody in the face twenty times because it thinks it's cool to explore violence, such a kid deserves worse than prison.

    Oh, and let alone the parents.

    You are correct on the possibility of abuse and mistakes in the publication of personal details. But a part of me thinks it is also justice. Not legally, I mean socially. If you are going to do something like this and record it with your iPhone...well, he who lives by the social media dies by the social media.

    New technology may have increased the velocity of information, but shunning and shaming are ages old techniques for society to police its own. It isn't perfect by any stretch, but there is some symmetry to it.
