Britain has recently been rocked by a string of pedophile scandals. 

From the well-known BBC presenter Jimmy Savile, whose victims run into the hundreds, to the revelations of former soccer players who were abused as youths, the media have reported a string of high-profile cases involving pedophilia, which have shocked public opinion. In response, groups of ordinary citizens have formed all over the country to catch pedophiles and bring them to justice. Their members pose as children on social media to attract ill-intentioned adults, arrange a meeting, then make a citizen’s arrest.
 
This increasingly widespread method has some support from the police and the courts, but nonetheless poses serious ethical problems.
