Devil's advocate, but couldn't this potentially interfere with the people's due process? I mean isn't he essentially doxxing people he believes are pedophiles before they have their day in court? I understand that he would have contacted them online and they may have turned up to meet what they thought were underage people, but that's not my point. I know voat is staunchly anti-pedo, but I'm not defending pedophiles, I'm defending due process. If we let it erode for those we despise, then it simultaneously erodes for those we like as well, even though we may not witness it right away.

The new theory seems to be "innocent, unless accused by anybody".

They're still innocent, he's not disrupting due process. He's not slandering either. These are all facts. Pedophile sexts what he thinks is a 14 year old, this guy simply makes that action public. Next time ask for an NDA if you want to sext a child privately. /s

This is no where, not even in the same ballpark as the paid Donald trump and Roy Moore accusers with zero evidence for a she said he said bullshit 30 years ago.

Whoever is in charge of this police department needs to explain why they need to arrest someone that's doing their job for them, where's the chief of police's statement?

Doxing is not illegal and thus no issue of due process. If they feel he has defamed him its a matter of libel/slander.

Police criticized him for exposing the identity of a sex offender, but I thought that is the fucking purpose of THE SEX OFFENDERS REGISTRY.

Well however you want to word it. I mean what if someone was found to be innocent, they would have their lives essentially ruined in the same way that guys get their lives ruined by false rape accusers. If you're going to do that stuff then maybe blur their face out etc. You can still hand them over to police and have them arrested/ have their day in court. It's easy to say yeah just charge the guy with libel/slander but I imagine it would be near impossible to come back from being accused of pedophillia. I like what the guy is doing but I also think the police have a point and it's not just as cut and dry as the article suggests, and that it was simply due to him being supposedly more effective than the police force.

Due process isn't about legality. Legality relates primarily to civil process.

Due process of law: Law in its regular course of administration through courts of justice. Due proc­ess of law in each particular case means such an exercise of the powers of the government as the settled maxims of law permit and sanction, and under such safeguards for the protection of individual rights as those maxims prescribe for the class of cases to which the one in question belongs. A course of legal proceedings according to those rules and principles which have been established in our systems of juris­prudence for the enforcement and protection of pri­vate rights. (Black's 5th edition).

If they feel he has defamed him its a matter of libel/slander.

Feelings don't matter here. Libel/slander is fundamentally about malicious intent, but it's typically prosecuted by the facts.

doxing would be publishing the pedofags' information online. all this guy is doing is just saying "hey police, i found a degenerate you need to lock up"

Police have now charged Warner with aggravated assault and publishing the identity of a person charged with a sex offense.

The article states that he did publish the info.

Also assaulting a couple of them, according to the charges. That's an anti-cop site, so take their claims and lack of links with a grain of assault.

I fucking guarantee that just means the pedos put up a fight. Cops should be ashamed of themselves.
