    Vigilantes are scum. They thrive like cockroaches simply because no laws exist (in the UK) to prevent discrimination of people who happen to have a paedosexual orientation. The short custodial sentence dished out clearly demonstrates law enforcement’s tolerance and implicit encouragement of thugs like Murray. The fact he was prosecuted was doubtless due to the possession of a lethal weapon – a step too far in the eyes of the law. If a homosexual man was the victim of a homophobic group acting as Murray acted, the charge would be attempted murder and rightly outraged gay groups would be baying for blood. But no, Murray will serve half his time and return to his vigilante ways egged on by a complicit society, and the attacked man will be tarnished for life.

    I’m really dumb, I’m sure I’m missing something. Did he make up the claims of fighting an activist group? Was he reported by activists? English isn’t my first language.

      It seems he was part of a vigilante “activist” group…and attacked another man on the sex offender register.

      He’s going to prison for about half a year, over it.

      No you are not at all dumb Yure; your IQ test result proves it ;o)

      I too was about to raise the same point as you because of the way the police statement was phrased. I read it again and then kind of understood what was being said. Just a badly worded piece of journalism.
