Nova Scotia RCMP warn against vigilante justice, Halifax Regional Municipality, N.S.


Nova Scotia RCMP are asking the public not to take matters into their own hands.

Various reports are circulating that individuals are suggesting harm against people involved in the Rehtaeh Parsons investigation.

Within both traditional and social media, misinformation is circulating and as you can appreciate the information that is available publicly is not always accurate or based on factual evidence. It is clear that a number of people and groups are suggesting violence and this has led to suggestions of vigilante action against individuals.

'We are discouraging anyone from taking the law into their own hands, or in any way encouraging vigilante justice,' says Cpl. Scott MacRae, Halifax District RCMP. If people have information that they feel should be reported police, please contact the police in their area.
