About 17 hours ago, I came across a video on Youtube (referred via Reddit) of a teen in a face mask being videoed as he abused a cat. I immediately sent this tweet:
A few of us discussed it on Twitter, reported it to Youtube, and within about 15 minutes, the video was taken down. We wondered at the time if the people involved would be caught. I am happy to report that this is the case, and this news report outlines what happened.
It is great to see that members of the Youtube community were able to act quickly and identify the perpetrators.
It is excellent to see that people are not totally anonymous on-line and will be held accountable for their actions. Well done.
