    • Really??? He lied and deceived several of people and published porn without the victim’s consent. He went after young men in poor communities and lured them with false pretenses, all while making a profit.


      • So Larry, if Spencer had never published the personal videos he made in secret, the murder would not have been justified? Did these victims suffer any damage due to Spencer’s actions?
