Justifiable Rage

by Tom Brodbeck - January 12th, 2007 - Winnepeg Sun

Car thief Stanley Ross is in for a rude awakening.

The 22-year-old Winnipegger, who was severely beaten following a two-car crash Saturday, has been in a medically induced coma for most of the week.

When, or if, he comes to, he's going to be in for a bit of a shock when he's told about the vitriolic anger directed -- not at his assailant -- but at him.


Vigilantism, or acceptance of it, doesn't happen in a vacuum.

It occurs when the public no longer feels the justice system is holding criminals accountable for their actions.

This article is just as appropriate for America as it is for Canada. Though the level of frustration with our courts is on the rise, people are still trying to influence the legislature and executive branches to pressure the tyrants in the judicial banch rather than taking vigilante action. However anger and rage at the courts is at the breaking point.

I sincerely feel justificable vigilante action is coming. Our lawyers and court system do not seem to be willing to accept any other form of criticism as valid. We still suffer from the "rule of judges" and this is not tolerable. The alternative is the Shakespeare solution, "First we kill all the judges".
