Commit a felony in the 'burbs and they exact their own special brand of vigilante justice...

Source
When I hear the term vigilante justice it conjures up images of angry mobs and hastily knocked together gallows.  But apparently vigilantism in the suburbs is a lot more civilized these days!

You can read all about it in my weekly article at Sprocketink.com [link]!

  1. My version of vigilante justice involves Charles Bronson, and it is not pretty.

    1. Nothing involving Charles Bronson revenge is ever pretty.

  2. I'd like to think I'd be that patient (& clever) but I doubt it!!

    1. LOL! I probably would be too chicken to call his mother.

  3. Wow. Hopefully the after-school-special-method worked. As for myself, I would've chosen option A, because I am NOT that kind.

  5. I'm afraid I would have called the cops and screamed "find the little bastard and put him in jail for the rest of his life".

    1. LOL! Me too. I think my frustration and anger would have outweighed any need to be generous.

  6. That woman was amazing. We need more people like her in the world. And I'm sure the kid learned his lesson. This is almost as bad as wearing one of those sandwich boards that reads, "I am a thief" or something like that and walking down Main Street!

    1. I read that article! Personally I agree with Pickleope's theory that it was a sex game.

  8. I thought I was being run off the road by a cellphone vigilante earlier this week as the guy drove up closely on the left, beeping and yelling at me. I returned home to a facebook message from the friend I hadn't recognized!

    1. LOL! That's happened to me too. What is it about a car window that renders the closest friend unrecognisable?

  9. Yes, that does sound terribly adult of everyone. I would have acted much less mature. I would of called the cops and possibly had the mom put her brat on the phone so I could yell at him. At 19 years old he should be acting like a grown-up and not having his mother make it do anything.

    1. I must admit 19 is probably at the end of what can still be considered a kid. But it was nice of her to come up with an alternative.

  10. I'd go all James Bond on their ass and make it explode! Well, it's just a thought, you know....

    1. And I'd like to welcome all my new CIA agent readers who've been brought here by the search term "explode" ;D
