For those of you who are very young or very immature, note that words can be used in more than one sense. On our website we use the word “vigilante” in two senses. One sense is the regular, Wild West, lawbreaking sense. The other is a figurative sense in which we are talking about law-abiding people who have a need that is not met by traditional law enforcement.
Vigilantes are morons because whatever good they wish to achieve can be achieved through martialism without breaking the law.
So far, we have provided two hypothetical (imaginary) examples of (lawbreaking) vigilante action based on numerous, real life, historical events. Their purpose is to show that (lawbreaking) vigilantism can be successful. However, martial action of any form must also never be lawbreaking and, if you know the law, it never has to be lawbreaking.
We have revised our presentation. The vigilante rules have been replaced with martial rules. The difference is one of context. If there is justification for martial action, the rules are martial rules. If there is no justification for martial action, the rules are vigilante rules.
Justification is one of the following:
To save human life.
To preserve human health.
To save human life and to preserve human health.
We have added additional explanatory material to The Accidental Vigilante to make it crystal clear to everyone, especially young people, that we have not, do not, and will not promote vigilantism in the Wild West sense, which is the regular idea of vigilantism, nor in any other, negative sense.
Is it time to start killing evolutionists? The answer is, first, no and, second, it will never be time to start killing evoluionists. We understand how infuriating their ignorance and muleheaded stubbornness is but such killing is never justified (see the Bible and elsewhere on our website).
However, there may be a lesser form of martialism possible. We are working on this question.

Inflict no injury from which the target cannot recover unless necessary to save human life.
Situation: A car drives by a home and fires guns into the home, killing a newborn baby.
Discovery: We find out about it the next day.
Our Response: We report the incident to the police and find out that they had already been informed.
Police Response: Police investigate and fail to find out who the killers were.
Our Response: We speak with our contacts in the neighborhood and find out the gang with whom the killers are associated. We provide this information to the police.
Follow-Up: Police question gang but cannot identify the killers.
Our Response: We seek to identify the killers. Gang will not cooperate. We make a threat assessment and a PCPA (police/courts protection ability) assessment, and develop a response plan.
Follow-Up: Three masked individuals deliver an ultimatum to the gang to give up the killers or suffer unspecified consequences.
Targets’ Friends’ (Gang) Response: Gang refuses to cooperate.
Our Response: We make a second threat assessment and a second PCPA (police/courts protection ability) assessment, and develop a response plan.
Follow-Up: Mysteriously, every day for a year, at least one person wearing the gang’s colors has both of their legs broken by three masked individuals.
Follow-Up: There have been no drive-by incidents in the community for the past three years.
Here is our first hypothetical example of vigilante action:
Situation: A man beats his wife every day for a month.
Discovery: We find out about it at the end of the month.
Our Response: We report the situation to the police.
Police Response: Police visit the home.
Follow-Up: Man beats his wife every day for a second month.
Discovery: We find out about it at the end of the second month, make a threat assessment and a PCPA (police/courts protection ability) assessment, and develop a response plan.
Our Response: We confront the man and tell him that he must stop or he will be stopped.
Target’s Response: Man beats his wife again that night.
Discovery: We find out about it the next day.
Our Response: An unidentified pair of masked individuals meet the man on his way home from work and break his right arm then tell him he will get worse if he beats his wife again. Anonymous donors support the couple financially until the man recovers and can return to work.
Follow-Up: Man has not beaten his wife for the past two years.
A martialist may never kill another human being except to protect themself and/or another or others from a present attack against themself and/or another or others.
The police must always be given time to do their job before any martial action is taken.
Martial action should be proportional in force to the severity of the offense. The offense of diminishing someone’s health should be met with less force than the offense of attempting to murder someone.
