  1. Ordinary citizens taking things (becoming judge and jury) into their own hands, and anarchy ensues. Watch it APNU+AFC… 100th day to make promises is fast approaching.

  2. A new form of justice creeping up. Vigilante style!! This shows that people are just disgusted with the current crime situation and are taking matters into their own hands. They probably feel the police are taking too long to bring justice to the victims hence their decision to act swiftly as the cliche, ” justice delayed is justice denied “
