Texas Justice Model for Nation

The Onion | Bush Lifts Ban On Vigilantism

"'From bordello-busters to subway shooters, vigilantes have a long history of pinpointing and resolving the problems plaguing their communities,' Bush said. 'Let's give 'em a shot.'

Bush's remarks came in the wake of criticism among his ultraconservative supporters, who argue that 'activist judges' often make decisions that contradict the will of the people. To help remedy this problem, many special-interest groups had been calling for an official tolerance of 'vigilante judicial committees.'"
