In simultaneously infuriating and sad news on this beautiful Monday morning, a pair of “Ghost Hunters” were found guilty late last week after breaking into a supposedly haunted house in Lancashire, England in January.
I refuse to give these people more attention than they deserve but here’s the source article if you want names.
The couple broke into the home of a man who had passed away in December of 2018 due to local rumors there was hidden bodies still in the home and that it was extremely haunted. The avid fans of shows like “Ghost Hunters” and “Paranormal Lockdown” decided to take it upon themselves to go SEEK THE TRUTH.
Creepers, here’s what they rarely explain on these paranormal shows. There’s more to paranormal investigation than standing in a line, trying to look epic while staring down a terrified photographer. Most importantly, it’s entertainment, they don’t show you the boring stuff because it’s, well… boring. Before they get to visit a house, abandoned hospital OR another haunted doll in the middle of a field somewhere they have to get permission. Private property is, you know, private property regardless of whether you’re Grant Wilson or these two nerf herders.
Yes, the idea of sneaking into a haunted house late at night, listening to the bumps and creaks of an old home is certainly a good bit of spooky fun but this is real life, not TV, so don’t buy into the LA Ghost Hunting thing. Setting up time to visit a location often involves a lot of legwork. You’re calling property owners, sending out your prospectus, writing reports, contacting City Hall and in between all of that, doing a hell of a lot of research.
These two lumps decided to go around all that and just let themselves in. Not cool and not how you do things.
It seems the judge agrees with us in this case, finding when both ghost hunters were found guilty. While the sentences weren’t particularly terrible, the message was clear. Don’t be an idiot.
Maybe take a break from TV for a little while.
