Depeering is not a large punishment?

In the internet world, mass depeering / de-transitting like we've see in this 
instance is akin to capital punishment.  By vigilantes.  The US Old West 
redux.

But even in a court of law in a criminal case a defense must be made, 
otherwise the least sort of evidence of culpability can produce conviction; 
the defendant must at least put on a defense to invalidate the culpatory 
evidence.  So when culpatory evidence is presented in these cases, requesting 
exculpatory evidence is very reasonable.

Lack of a defense in a civil case will virtually guarantee a favorable 
judgment for the plaintiff, however.
