Yea, yea I know, its an old movie, but I just watched it for the first time yesterday. The movie, and the child molsterer's that were killed thread, got me thinking. What would be the reaction of the general population, if something like that REALLY happened? A few people got together, and started killing all the scumbag gangbangers, but left innocents alone?


I'll add a poll after I see a few responses.

I did most of my growing up in Detroit, and policed there for awhile. You think people are upset when bad guys kill other bad guys? It happens every day, in every major city in the US; do you see anyone who's upset?

" Now you will recieve us" All threads linked to this topic end up being posts where people post quotes from the movie. But, In answer to your querry, I have no idea, but I would like to think that it would meet little resistance. But it would be put down by those that feel murder is murder, no matter who it is thats getting whacked.

The interviews at the end are a reasonable cross-section of what the real deal would be like, IMHO.

just got done watching it, pretty good movie, could do without the gay scenes and Wm Dafoe crossdressing. Finding out the Duke was family was a nice plot twist.

The Saints ROCK.

My obligitory quote, In the language it *should* have been in:

"Agus beimid inár n-aoirí
ar do shonsa, a Thiarna, ar do shonsa,
tá cumhacht tagtha anuas ó do lámh
ionas go gcomhlíonadh ár gcosa do thoil go tapaidh.
Sruthóimid ar aghaidh mar abhainn chugat
Agus plódaithe le hanamacha a bheidh sí go deo."

(And shepherds we shall be,
for thee my lord for thee.
Power hath decended forth from thy hand
so our feet may swiftly carry out thy command.
And we shall flow a river forth to thee
and teeming with souls shall it ever be.)

I'd like to have the room full of weapons in that movie.

Now you will receive us.
We do not ask for your poor, or your hungry.
We do not want your tired and sick.
It is your corrupt we claim.
It is your evil that will be sought by us With every breath, we shall hunt them down.
Each day we will spill their blood, 'til it rains down from the skies.
Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles which every man of every faith can embrace.
These are not polite suggestions, these are codes of behavior, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost.
There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth, not to push the bounds and cross over, in to true corruption, into our domain.
For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three, and on that day you will reap it.
And we will send you to whatever god you wish.

Made it a point to memorize that after seeing that movie!

Didn't they make a movie about exactly what your talking about? I think it was called The Star Chamber.

Bad-ass movie! I recommend it to all everyone I know.

too bad it will probably never come out

If it really was happening I think the majority of the people would be ok with it

Just put it back in the case. Watched it about 7 times so far.

The ACLU would be on their ass in a heartbeat, declaring them evil vigilanties. Bush would back their opinion because he doesn't want to lose voters, yet will isolate heavy conservatives at the same time.

Those evil mob bosses being killed? They'll be etched into our heads as "wonderful, caring uhsbands and fathers," rather than the scum they really are.

Now having said that... What're you gonna do with that, eh' Rambo?

Way off topic but........

Does Bush realise that he is a LAME DUCK?

Isn't this the point in his presidency where he shouldn't care who he pisses off?

Shouldn't he be doing everything in this term that he wanted to do in his first term but couldn't because he was afraid he wouldn't get re-elected?

Sorry for the rant....but your observation got me thinking....

Nope. I think it is a big reason why he has paid absolutely no attention to the people screaming about the border situation. Border security will be a huge part of the Republican platform for the '08 election. Sad, but true.

ETA: Oh yeah, forgot:

Doc: "You know what they say: People in glass houses sink ships!"
Rocco: "I got to buy you a proverb book or something, because this mix 'n' match shit's got to go."
Doc: "What?"
Conner MacManus: "Well, a penny saved is worth two in the bush, right?"
Murphy MacManus: "And don't cross the road if you can't get out of the kitchen."
