So, in the face of inadequate legal recourse for an illegal act... you expect folks to just sit there and take it? Are you trying to tell us that people don't have a right to self defense when the cops aren't willing or able to intervene?
I am worried this road you want to take. I want to protect those who need it as much as anyone. But this line you are crossing it leads to a dark place where individuals get to meet out justice, individuals with no accountability.
All I can say is be careful not to become that which you are fighting against.
