37. vigilante is a group of guys who go looking

for someone one. I'm talking about someone who is wrong place wrong time. Using your logic, the guy who took the gun away from Squeeky before she was able to take a shot at Ford, or the people who tackled JL were vigilantes. They were not.
An example of vigilantism would be Roman Polanski going after Manson and the "family" in revenge. A more modern example, which actually happened, was Spike Lee and Rosanne Barr tweeting addresses to incite a lynch mob. BTW, did you denounce that? If you are against vigilantism as a principle, then it is wrong in all cases even if you don't like the target.

Misspelling is one thing, not knowing what the word means.......................please learn it.
