A Facebook group has just started: “R.I.P RAOUL MOAT YOU LEGEND! ♥”
Already, it has nearly 18,000 members all talking about their admiration for the ‘legend’ who just killed himself.
I was at a party the other day and there was a guy there talking about how much he admires Moat for being a real-life Rambo, for fighting against the system, and for doing what he wanted…
It’s easy to understand why people admire Moat. They like the idea of freedom. To live freely and to kill or destroy anything that causes a problem in your life, but to start expressing admiration on Facebook for an armed killer who was running loose on the streets seems a bit naive.
