Vigilantes

Icon law.svg
Vigilantes are persons or groups who take it upon themselves to enforce the law (or their interpretation of it) without proper legal authority, and to summarily punish wrongdoers. In western society, it is almost universally discredited by official law enforcement, because of the lack of due process, citizen rights, or formal processing necessary in any society with an organized legal system.
