AROUND THE NATION; Texas School Vigilantes Are Given Jail Terms
AP Published: June 11, 1986
FORT WORTH, June 10— Five members of the Legion of Doom, a student vigilante group that sought to eliminate crime and drug abuse at a high school by intimidating suspected wrongdoers, have been sent to jail.
Four of the teen-agers were sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail and 10 years of probation. Another was sentenced to 14 days in jail and 10 years of probation. The other two received five years of probation.
Judge Don Leonard of State District Court also ordered members of the group at Paschal High School to pay about $8,000 in restitution, write 1,000-word reports on the ''value of probation'' and spend up to 200 hours in community service.
And they made a movie about them.
Brotherhood of Justice
These are dangerous times. A group of high school students are inspired enough by their Headmaster's anti-vandalism campaign to actively pursue a cure for the problem. Rich kid, jock hero Derek (KEANU REEVES) leads the class debate.
The mahogany actor waxing lyrical to his entire class about the state of affairs is an experience not to be missed. Weary of the escalating vandalism and drug peddling at their school, a select few jocks (led by Derek) become a group of masked vigilantes called 'The Brotherhood of Justice'.
They begin with a system of 'watching people,' in order to put fear into the hearts of the criminals, but their actions soon become less passive and more aggressive. Drug dealers are attacked and stabbed, even on school grounds and at parties.
'Dammit man, I been stabbed' (drug dealer)
Before long, even their lofty ideals are beginning to crumble. Brotherhood members remember old, petty, unsettled scores they would like to settle.
