New crackdown has ordered police to arrests vigilante members
UK police chiefs have ordered a massive crackdown successful pedophile vigilante groups leaving child predators to continue snaring young children.
The new crackdown has ordered police offices not only to stop working with the groups but also to pursue them and arrest them under the full force of British Law.
Police officers have been told to investigate harassment, privacy violations and violent offenses committed by the pedophile vigilante groups, but also those accuse of child grooming.
The Times reports that the internal guidance was issued to detectives last year, and warns officers that vigilante groups have “little or no consideration” for the safeguarding requirements of victims of the pedophiles they have out.
One vigilante group member said: “The reason why we exist is that the police don’t do their job, once they take us away, the children our basically sitting ducks for these sick twisted pedophiles.”
“We’re going to be arrested for helping snare pedophiles, it doesn’t make sense, it’s like their protecting them.”
According to The Mirror: On November 20, Mr Rivers visited Heavitree Police Station in Exeter dressed as Batman, to hand in evidence he had formed about a child predator, which prompted officers to hand Mr Rivers and official ‘cease and desist letter’.
A Cease and Desist Order is an official order handed down by a government agency or court directing a person or entity to stop doing something immediately.
The crackdown comes after a wave of violence following vigilante attempts to bring abusers to justice.
David Baker, 43, killed himself in October four days after being confronted by pedophile hunters.
He was detained by Hampshire police. His family said the vigilantes failed to consider the repercussions of their actions.
