Best thing I've read today - Virtual Vigilantism

Go read this. Right now. http://scathinglywrongrightwingnutz.blogspot.com/2011/06/virtual-vigilantism-and-public-shaming.html

I knew there was a reason I was so uneasy about the police saying "send us your video". I couldn't put my finger on it. Fern Hill at DammitJanet nails it. It's virtual vigilatism. "Booya! Let's punish a drunken 18-year-old yob who posed in front of a broken window -- for the rest of his fucking life! That's the Canadian way. Isn't it?"

I just got spanked by The Mound of Sound, though. So this is nice to see.
