Web backlash continues to rage against the Camrose teens who allegedly nuked a cat - with one Facebook poster urging people to cover the lawns of the four accused with microwaves.
The boys - three aged 15 and one aged 13 - have been charged with torturing and killing a cat in relation to two consecutive burglaries at a Camrose home on Dec. 29 and Dec. 30.
In addition to several hate groups directed at the teens, an event was created yesterday called the "First Annual Camrose, Alberta, Microwave Dropoff," scheduled for Dec. 30, 2008.
REMINDER OF THE INCIDENT
"The dropoff should be dealt with as a gift," wrote the poster, who didn't want his name printed. "A gift to the accused as an ever constant reminder that the town of Camrose, Alberta has not forgotten about them."
When contacted by Sun Media yesterday, the event's creator explained that he wasn't condoning violence with the event.
"The main purpose was to provide a mindful alternative to what people were writing on the wall of the group, which included violence, and torture. These kids need help, not restitution from a vigilante public.
NO ILL-WILL FOR FAMILIES
"It started as a passing thought. The next morning, I thought about the possibility of things going horribly wrong and tried to remove the event but it just ended up still being active yet abandoned," he said.
"I don't want any harm to fall upon the families. Not at all. I'm still awaiting the deletion of the event from Facebook."
One of the four accused made an appearance at the Camrose courthouse yesterday.
He had been in custody for breaching probation after an earlier incident where he lit a sibling on fire.
The other three accused will make their first appearances on Feb. 7.
