‘Justice as entertainment’ means never having to say sorry

CBC interviewed UBC law professor Benjamin Perrin for a story on the phenomenon of vigilante groups like Creep Catchers who track and film alleged pedophiles before exposing them online.

“This is a group that is manufacturing a scenario and an investigation and identifying someone who very well may have committed these offences — we don’t know that yet. But doing so in a way that gives themselves publicity and that they seem to take delight in,” he said. “And that’s not how the justice system works.”
