“A DEVOUT Christian who waged a vigilante witch hunt and burned down a school after claiming he was on a “mission from God” to expose paedophiles was today jailed for 15 years.
Philip Day, 56, set fire to a secondary school which he falsely claimed was “a playground for paedophiles” and torched an innocent man’s £1.6m Tudor home during an eight-year campaign to “protect children”.
Quoting the Bible and claiming “God” was “justifying his actions”, Day also stalked a teacher in the false belief he had raped a pupil at the school and falsely named him as a paedophile in videos and messages on Facebook.
The unnamed teacher received a chilling message whilst on holiday with his family from Day saying: “If I was you I would asked for police protection.
“You have two options, hand yourself in to the police or hide. Your life as you know it is about to change.”
…Should I even say, just how familiar a few of those messages are?…I’ve recieved what amounts to the same.
A lot of “pedophile hunters” are mentally ill, themselves.
