Do Villagers Ever Get The Concept Of Justice Right?

They really just don't believe in trials. I'm glad Cokie Roberts isn't making gross defenses of Polanski, but flippant calls for vigilante justice aren't really appropriate either.

“Roman Polanski is a criminal, Roberts said. "He raped and drugged and raped and sodomized a child. And then was a fugitive from justice. As far as I’m concerned, just take him out and shoot him.”

The judge, jury, and executioner has spoken.
