VANCOUVER — A vigilante trio of teenagers dressed up in superhero costumes have had their form of justice shut down by the RCMP after they set up sting operations to catch men wanting to have sex with teenage girls.
The teenagers — dressed as Batman and the Flash — pretended to be 15-year-old girls online and posted videos of their confrontations with men arriving at rendezvous points.
