word du jour: VIGILANTE

According to Merriam-Webster online, the definition of VIGILANTE is:

a member of a volunteer committee organized to suppress and punish crime summarily (as when the processes of law are viewed as inadequate) ; broadly : a self-appointed doer of justice

In light of recent events in Oakland, with the most recent being a career criminal that shot and killed three, and possibly four, Oakland Police Officers, it is my firm belief that VIGILANTISM is going to be on the rise. 

Oakland is in bad shape.  Therefore, we are all in bad shape.

Not much progress since the “Wild, Wild West”.
