A British woman has murdered a man she was previously friendly with once he was charged with paedophile offenses against boys under 13. She later handed herself in to police...... http://www.london24.com/news/crime/...e_on_east_london_estate_court_hears_1_4125598 This opens up so many issues regarding taking the law into one's own hands, mitigating factors, innocent until proven guilty, whether the guy - if guilty - deserved this, and whether the woman had any moral right to impose her own justice. What if someone is murdered for being a monster? Does that lessen the crime of murder in any way? And then there is the protection issue. Since everyone has a right to be treated as innocent until proven guilty, should not this man have been offered some protection until such time as he was convicted in a court of law? And then, should any person guilty of the murder of anybody - even a monster - be considered potentially dangerous? After all, most of us surely hate paedophiles, but very few of us would go out and stab one to death, at least not if our own loved ones were not their victims. Most of us would let the courts deal with it.
