Should your friendly, Neighborhood vigilante be allowed to shoot someone breaking the law without authorization by any extent of the law? Note: I'm not talking about self defense
Debate Round No. 1


Gavitron forfeited this round.


When is a vigilante not a vigilante?

In a one on one unwitnessed situation. How do you prove which one is the good guy?

The problem with vigilantism is that a person who is not sanctioned by any agency has taken it upon themselves to carry out justice as they see fit. This is regardless of the crime committed, We do not even give law enforcement officers that much power because it is too much power for a flawed individual to have.

The only time that would be fine by me, Is if that the criminal had done something insanely bad. And the only way he could not escape is that a vigilante had to take action. But otherwise I don't think that a vigilante should kill someone. Not inn self defense either. Let the police do their job.

Are you talking about someone who goes out with the purpose of hunting down criminals, Or are you talking about a normal citizen who stumbles upon an illegal act?
