Vigilante! (1992)

Film details


All over the UK, the reduction in conventional policing has led to increased private policing, expensive security guards, amateur vigilante groups, individuals taking revenge and fortification of homes. Bruce Nelmes took battery acid and a hammer to the man who assaulted his daughter and says "I have no regrets". Legal academics, police, county councillors, Neighbourhood Watchers, security firms, a surgeon, victims and Barbara Mills, Director of Public Prosecutions all give their views.
