Some call him a hero. Some call him a villain. He's "John Doe: Vigilante" - an ordinary man who decides to take the law into his own hands. Frustrated with a failing legal system that continues to allow violent criminals to go free, John Doe begins exacting justice the only way he knows how - by killing one criminal at a time. Soon he becomes a media sensation and inspires a group of copycat vigilantes, but who is the real John Doe - a pillar of justice or a cold-blooded murderer? You decide. Written by

After John Doe executes the man who killed his wife and daughter in front of a camera broadcasting the situation live on the news, he stabs a note into the mans chest with the address of their location for the camera to see. The only problem with that is, the scene quickly changes back to the news broadcast which shows that the streaming camera has somehow moved itself from in front of, to behind the dead man making the page with the address observable to the broadcast.

A vigilante is simply somebody who violates the law in order to punish a criminal for what they believe is right, for what they believe is justice. So what then do you call a country who sends soldiers to kill people in places like Afghanistan or Iran, Iraq, Korea, Vietnam in the name of what they believe is right, in the name of what they believe is justice. That country is a vigilante - pure and simple.
