wonder why such videos get so popular?
People get so that they’re sick of the crap and they just aren’t going to take it forever! Watch the video.
Oh yeah, and what’s this?:
… the end result will be, “a lot of vigilante justice. And what are people gonna do about it? Call the cops? Remember, in the end the police aren’t there to protect the public from criminals, they’re there to protect criminals from the public. Communities dealt with crime long before police were invented, usually in rather harsh and low-due-process ways. The bargain was, let the police handle it instead. No police, no bargain.”
Look, I value due process and the rule of law. As do most of us. And so Leftists need to be careful about what they’re undermining!
And understand well how big a cultural force vigilanteism has always been! From Death Wish to Dirty Harry to Batman to Harry Potter (after all, what is “The Order Of The Phoenix” but a HUGELY glorified vigilante group–that you pull for?). It’s a ubiquitous theme–I would bet that around 75% of ALL film and fiction literature is based on it.
If there’s a “bad guy” in the story, there’s probably revenge–and it sure ain’t calling the police…
