That's exactly why I personally do all the ass kicking that needs taken care of. I like the painting of the ass hat idea...maladroit wrote:The problem with mob violence is that everyone wants to get in a punch, and there is no group consciousness of how much damage is actually done. One person can trade punches with someone and evaluate when the point has been made, but a mob often ends up taking it far beyond that.

Still, feels like an important point, especially given OP genuinely asking for people's thoughts on playa justice.
Vigilante justice might feel right to those dishing it out, but really you are just perpetuating violence outside of any societial frameworks/constraints. That's why it could look like assault to GoodSarah, and why it ultimately isn't so different, regardless of how justfied it may feel or how "appropriate" it may be.
