Vigilantes What were vigilantes? People who took the law into their own hands What actions did they take? They usually drove suspected criminals out of town or lynched them Why were they needed? In the early days, it took time for law and order to get established in new towns and communities. Sheriffs were often badly paid and took bribes, criminals could pay them off. Were they a force for good or evil? They helped some communities where there was no alternative but sometimes they added to the problem by accusing and punishing the wrong people. An example of this is Jim Averill and Ella Watson.
