Quote from: "Byronazriel"No, YOU'RE a saint peter type of being. You wake up at a desk with computer, and have to judge these guys. You are you, just with the POWER and RESPONSIBILITY of the job. I'm interested in your (And everybody's) thoughts.
QuoteAnd what of the evidence Superman collects... is it admissible? Do we know Superman well enough to know he'd NEVER plant evidence because some guy had the hots for Lois Lane?
QuoteAll of these have sort of a superhero appeal. Vigilantes out fighting crime in ways that cops cannot either because of superpowers or because they are not held to the Constitution when it comes to things like illegal searches, trials, fair representation, jury of peers, etc., and can be more effective at fighting crime because of it.
Quote from: "fester30"I don't necessarily believe vigilantes are evil. I just believe that if they operate outside of the law, they deserve to be punished just like the bad guys they're after. Superman should be in prison.
