The brutal rape of a young woman provokes a group of friends to band together and provide some Illegal assistance to the judicial system. Too many monsters were evading justice, as in this case and they could no longer tolerate it. The legal system played by a fixed set of rules - the criminals however suffered no such constraints and made up their own rules. Too many were now evading justice on technicalities or slick lawyering and dangerous men were still roaming the streets because of it. These evil demons had to be punished for their crimes and if the courts could not do so - then this group of friends would gladly offer their unlawful assistance free of charge. Their sentences may be unconventional and rather severe - but they were most certainly effective and always produced the desired result and kept the general public safe as a result. While the court system may frown upon such vigilante activity, the general public most certainly would not. The crimes that some of these men committed were particularly heinous - animals were less barbaric. The guilty were now being punished - how appropriately is up to you to decide once you learn about the crimes committed. To this group of friends - their Illegal aid was considered beneficial to the everyday citizen as they could all sleep easier at night because of it.
