Internet vigilante justice; a step too far or..

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

I'd read about this a little before, but hadn't really grasped the full scope of it:

http://www.kenny-glenn.net/

Essentially a 14 year old horifically abused his cat - I couldn't watch the videos, owning a cat myself, I felt all the pain - and posted some videos online. He's clearly got a screw loose from something, and seems to be happy about what he did.

Browsing that website though, it looks like some people have taken it too far. Whilst not forgetting that the boy was only exposed - and the cat was only saved - through the efforts of /b/, this looks like a rather unfair result on his parents, who were probably unaware of what was happening.

I wonder if we'll see more cases like this in the future?

Indeed, it is not fair to target an oil company just because its director's son abused a cat. How many people and families is it supporting?

It would be more productive to be watchful for similar abuses, to discourage any future abuses like that. For that, /b/ needs to be taken down, because people there actually troll each other into abuse.

See where I am going? It is a culture thing.

Well, he should get mental treatment. Most teenagers are stupid as shit, but this takes it 5 steps too far.

Ohhh :D Sorry, now that I re-read it, that statement was probably a little too radical. Now, what I mean is that you get more and more social competence the older you get. You'll have to carry more responsibility and so on - whereas teenagers still have to figure out a lot of that stuff, which makes them seem sorta stupid.

But that's sort off off-topic here. There's a line that you can cross between being a cocky teenager and being an abusive, stupid son of a bitch and that kid has obviously crossed that line and then some.

He's cocky for sure, deserves most of what's coming to him, but do the family?

I don't think you can shut down /b/ or anything like that, it's not viable; I guess this is just a shout at the power of the internet, it's only going to get more powerful.

They dont have proof that /b/ encouraged him to do such things, also "power of internet" thats [censored] just becouse someone is mental doesnt mean its Internet fault.

I'm talking about the website made about him, which somewhat invades the family's privacy.

Good. Maybe they will fix their Satan-spawned child.

The guy runs an oil company anyway... last time I checked those fuckers aren't doing any of us any favours with fuel prices etc. I say hang their dirty laundry out to dry, and maybe something good will come of all this.

If my kid ever did something like this, I would expect to be humiliated in public as well by my peers, since I would obviously be a shit parent that instills zero morals in their kid.

I want to grab that little fucker and smash his face into the wall and punch the fuckers out of him, exactly like he did to his cat. Then, I'd throw him in the wood chipper and laugh.
