Because this is how you get vigilanteism. You are a HUGE fool to back the Lefty pro-crime agenda.
At the village with the most unsolved burglaries in the UK, shopkeepers are turning to vigilante-style tactics.
As a merchant (or even a regular person) what else is there to do? Honestly, if there is no official justice, who can blame them for protecting themselves?
BUT, this will progress. At the extreme, ALL crimes might well become death-penalty crimes! I mean, there is a very good reason to have a police force and a functioning justice system.
