Man assaulted by vigilante

Man assaulted by vigilante at Walmart

This article attracted my attention because gang stalking is also called community policing, which is not much different from vigilantism, or taking the law into your own hands. For the most part, I’ve been opposed to vigilantism. I am very much in favor of bystander intervention, when a crime is actually occurring, but I think vigilantism can be dangerous because it can be based on assumptions by untrained individuals, as this article points out. It’s the same with gang stalking (community policing/revenge stalking) – nobody should be the judge, jury, and executioner of justice. Further, it’s the same old “teach her/him a lesson” that we see in domestic violence. This is over the top self-righteousness.
