Interesting train of thought...

Who gave a judge the right to assign a sentence?

Who gave a police officer the right to file an arrest?

Who gave legislature the right to write a bill into law?

Do citizens have a right to do whatever they please?

To answer you directly: citizens make judgement on fellow citizens daily. Best example is the jury system.
