> I brought this up in one of my previous posts, there was a case in Amsterdamn where a retired boxer beat a pedophile to death. When the police came to arrest the boxer the people said that he was a hero and that he actually saved future victims......So my question is if you were the on the jury how would you find the boxer, guilty or not guilty?



While I could definitely *understand* the boxer's motivation and perhaps even sympathize with him, I would still find him guilty. No legal system is perfect, but at least there are checks and balances in place to protect the innocent from being falsely accused.

Vigilanteism is the first step toward mob violence, and to condone it undermines the law and ultimately endangers *everyone*.
