In this case I would argue it matters not at all whether the guy has good 
intentions; that is not a legitimate defense. Even if we may sympathize 
with his motive, it does not make his actions valid or him innocent of 
breaking the law. It's just vigilantism, plain and simple. Private citizens 
can't go making this kind of decision, because, chaos, eventually. 

Also, apologies to Jon, I did not see his script. Great minds, etc.
