if u dont want to institute the death penalty in the courts, then it willbe instituted on the streets.citizens hav a right to swift and accessible justice, and the currentsystem is not giving them that. all we are seeing is spillover justice.

You missed the "reported fact that" the the police came 2 hourslater. What do you have to say about that?

what about the contempt the law has for victims of crime -police coming a day after called or not coming at all, casecoming to court in 5 years time, witnesses afraid to testify,files and evidence disappearing from the police station etc etc

There you go again Jumbie!!Looking at secular Law from somekind of Bibical or Koranic perspective where the claim of DIVINEINSTRUCTION, does NOT allow for debate.You seem to leaveout all the realities under which all our citizens face every day,lackof effective policing,lack of trust in the police,rampant crime,lowapprehension rates,a rusting judicial system,grave fear of being avictim of crime.In short the citizenry feel totally hopeless.While thecitizens should be cautioned about reacting to criminal acts,I get afeeling from your point of view,that law abiding citizens shouldremain passive,even when under massive pressure from the evilelements in our society.I understand where you are comingfrom,BUT we are living in very scary times bro!!!..Oh! By the way,this was NOT an act of vigilantism but a reaction to a heinouscrime that had just been committed.Vigilantism usually involvespre planning which is NOT the case here.
