We live in a society which is governed by laws. On paper at least, when someone does something bad or illegal, the police will come and arrest them, after which they will stand trial. This system of law is supposed to hand out fair and equal justice to those who break the rules. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always seem like justice gets served.
You can likely think of a few cases where the person being tried for a crime got off the hook because of a loophole, technicality or lenient judge. In most instances, the media and population stew about the decision but do little else. That said, in more rare cases, Joe-Public takes the law into their own hands and dishes up a side of vigilante justice.
