Done the vigilante thing in the past, extremely satisfying but ultimately ended up costing me dearly. Police decided not to turn a blind eye. I was punished more than the scrote I caught. Now where did I put that ski mask?
Know that feeling well, sometimes you have to pause, think....... and then catch the little scrote later when he can't prove it's you.
Agreed, take a step back, and consider your options, consider the risks of getting caught, something subtle, that will be hard to prove or even trace.
Not that id condone violence or other criminal activity, but if the police and the legal system won't do anything, what option are people left with, either sort it themselves or let the scrote get off scott-free.
Really annoys me, but what can ya do, the police avoid doing any real work as much as they can, and the legal system is entirely built around the rights of criminals nowadays.
