Will you accept a vigilante like 'Dexter' in real life?
Showtime series 'Dexter' is so unique and powerful. What if there is a vigilante like him in our real life? Would you fear him or respect him?
In my honest opinion, we need more people like Dexter in our world to make the necessary changes a lot of us want...for the better. Our laws only protect the guilty, while punishing the innocent (victims) from a swift resolution to their pain. How much time, effort and money is spent to convict someone who is guilty? There is too much red tape that continues to bind the hands of the law…probably the same tape around the eyes of “justice.” And it’s interesting you use the term “vigilante” in your hub.
Dictionary.com defines the following as such:
VIGILANTE: person who takes the law into his own hands, as by avenging a crime.
JUSTICE: the administering of deserved punishment or reward.
Dexter, from my point of view, is not committing a crime. He is merely doing what our “justice” system fails to do…and saving us billions of dollars in the process.
Yes, i would. Many times i imagine i'm one myself. If only i had more time... May i suggest you also read the books, if you haven't already? They're very different and much much better(no, i'm not saying the show is bad, just that the books are better)
I love Dexter, but I don't want one in real life. Dexter has a barely controlled compulsion. He must kill, he's just managing to direct his compulsion and "harness it for good." But Dexter doesn't kill people because they are bad, he kills them because he needs to. If there's no serial killer available to satisfy his need, it will still have to be satisfied.

Should there not be some sort of action by our justice department against the New Black Panthers and Spike Lee for fomenting vigilante justice? This is a crime after all to conspire someones death.I agree action is slow...

I just turned thirty on Tuesday and several friends have told me they thought thirty was when real life begins. Does anyone else feel this way? Just curious.
