How do you feel about vigilante (read "mob") action in the Wild West? Was it ever justified? Specifically, was it justified in the case of Jim Miller, aka "Killin' Jim" and "Deacon Jim"? Miller had gotten away with murder one way or another for a quarter century before some 40 citizens of Ada, Oklahoma, took him out of jail and hanged him in 1909.
