Modern Day Internet Posses Help

Red Planet Cartoons:
Do Not Anger the Jawa

Those who grew up watching Westerns know all about how the local citizens would band together in times of trouble to form posses, and help track down killers.Red Planet Cartoons has a nice discussion on the hunting and tracking of jihadi IPSs by ordinary citizens and some of the recent developments.

From the Washington Times:
Ordinary Americans are tracking down U.S. Web sites used by al Qaeda and jihadi sympathizers and then using the Internet to persuade the service providers to snuff out the sites.

“I do this because it has to be done,” says one blogger who calls himself a “counter-cyberjihadist” for his campaigns to post on the Web the Internet service providers (ISPs) that host the pro-jihad sites.

Would-be jihadis and terrorists in the U.S. are coming under increasing scrutiny, not by government agencies, but by modern-day citizen posses. Will we see the Internet citizen's arrest?
