At what point is it ok to take matters into our own hands?

On Monday there was this article where a member of the public took the keys off a tourist. He believed that the tourist’s driving was a threat to human life and so he took the law into his own hands. At what point do you think it is ok to take the law into your own hands?

Some situations to ponder:

  • A guest in your home is drunk and is intending to drive home. Do you take the keys off them if they refuse to stay the night or take a taxi?
  • You see a stranger in the street, drunk and attempting to open the door of his car to drive home. If he refuses your offer of a drive home or to call a taxi do you take the keys off him?
  • You are drunk and are intending to drive home. A friend takes the keys off you when you refuse to stay the night or to catch a taxi. In the morning are you angry with your friend?
  • You do nothing when a person you know gets into their car drunk and drives off. In the morning you learn that they were involved in a head on smash and three people are now dead. Do you feel in anyway responsible for their deaths?
