Jul 1, 2015 2:25 PM by News Staff

A controversial Facebook page known as "RAT Patrol" or Redding Area Transient Patrol, now has more than 3,000 members and continues to grow.

The page has created some controversy locally because some of its members seemingly condone violent acts against the homeless population.

Mike Miller, one of the groups' administrators tells Action News Now he considers himself a homeless advocate, and the page started as a joke meant to get people talking about Redding's homeless issue.

Good News Rescue Mission Officials say they are aware of the page, and are trying to learn a little more about it before taking any action.
