The act of vigilante or "eigenrichting" is the act of an individual or a group performing acts outside the law. The act of self-judgment is nothing but an act of exercising arbitrary right, without the consent of the other interested party. In essence, this act of self-judgment is the implementation of sanctions/groups. It's just that sanctions performed by individuals and groups is difficult to measure its weight, because the mass can sometimes act crazy and uncontrollable. The phenomenon of the vigilante case or also called" mass justice" like this has become the material of mass media reporting while the community members do not show remorse and even express their satisfaction. If examined, such acts have violated the principle of the penal law of the principle of presumption of innocence, where everyone is considered innocent before a permanent verdict from the court.
