Comment: It depends

In reply to comment: Works for me, let's give it a try. (see in situ)

It depends

on whether the captured person is actually guilty of the crime.

If he is guilty, then no violation of NAP has occurred.

If he is not guilty, then a violation of NAP has occurred.

Philosophically, it makes no difference whether the criminal is captured by the original victim, or by a third party lending assistance to the victim.


Now, my question for you:

Do you agree that punishment for a crime, after the fact, falls into the category of legitimate defensive force?
