Citizen Vigilantes Using New Media To Shame “Louts”

Jul 1st, 2009 | By | Category: Citizen Media

A UK neighborhood group is commemorating the “litter louts” that are trashing up their neighborhood by  videotaping them and publishing the videos on the Internet.

According to the group:

One of the biggest issues here in terms of its impact on the community here is litter. And it has been so for quite some time.

It is so endemic and part of the day to day life of the neighbourhood that people, even those responsible for managing the neighbourhood no longer notice it to such an extent that they are motivated to take realistic action over it.

Do you think using new media to shame “louts” will help neighborhoods fight litter and other problems?
