A quick definition of Vigilante justice:

Term: Vigilante justice

Definition: Vigilante justice is when someone takes the law into their own hands and tries to enforce it without having the legal authority to do so. This can be done by one person or a group of people. It can also happen when there is no clear law enforcement in an area and different groups try to enforce their own version of the law.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Vigilante justice refers to actions taken by individuals or groups who believe they are enforcing the law, but lack the legal authority to do so. This can include violent or aggressive behavior towards those perceived as criminals or wrongdoers.

For example, a group of citizens may take it upon themselves to patrol their neighborhood and confront individuals they believe are committing crimes. This can lead to dangerous situations and can escalate into violence.

Vigilante justice can also refer to a general state of lawlessness, where multiple groups or individuals are all attempting to enforce their own version of justice. This can lead to chaos and a breakdown of the legal system.

Overall, vigilante justice is not a safe or effective way to enforce the law. It can lead to harm to innocent individuals and can undermine the authority of the legal system.

@georgiapeach88: I actually remember you from some of the first times I was on this site
Just out of curiosity: Do we think it's fair to say that the percentage of users of those site who continue to use it after their 1L starts, for those users who actually went or go to law school, is <1%?

I always think back to when I was anxious waiting for my lsat results one take. I went to the park and a parent let me play with their kid. I fixed his truck and he was hyped! He told me to “have a good time!” when I left haha. He’s our spirit animal!
