Joshua Dray Dr. Austin 9/26/11 Page Vigilante Justice Throughout ancient and even modern history vigilante justice has been part of our  society. Vigilantes are an important part of history, and often times prove to be valuable  to the general public. Vigilantes such as Rodrigo Duterte from the Philippines provide to  be valuable assets to keeping peace on the streets where it seems that the typical  judiciary system may fall short. Duterte has done wonders for the small city of Davao; he  has spread his own vigilante justice as mayor of the city.  Duterte is comparable to a modern day Batman and Harvey Dent, the two main  characters from  The Dark Knight . He has established a system in the city of Davao where  he has taken those that do wrong in the city and punished them sometimes outside of  the law. Duterte keeps a close watch on his citizens often perusing through the streets of  the city, proving that the area is safe to live in. Duterte recently retook the position of  mayor of the city. Since Duterte has been sitting as mayor of the city the streets have  gone from some of the worst in the nation to simply stated “the most peaceful city in  Southeast Asia”.  Some argue that the mayor’s strategy for keeping order in the city is not the way  it should be done. They say that Duterte acting as judge, juror, legislator, and possibly  executioner goes against the policy the government was built upon. Others however
