Sometimes justice, like the hawk...

I understand why our justice system has to work the way it does. I understand why police can't beat a confession out of a suspect and why they aren't allowed to take a person out of their home in the dead of night and make them disappear. But, sometimes, I believe we need a different kind of justice. Sometimes I think the world should be a little more like a comic book world.
How is it that Terri Horman, who so obviously kidnapped and likely killed her stepson is still a free woman? I understand that the police need the proper evidence to arrest her and convict her in court, but wouldn't it be nice if there were people out there like Daredevil and the Punisher who could pull this horrible woman out of her bed in the middle of the night and beat a full confession out of her? Where is the kid? Why did she do it? Who were her accomplices?
I just think of all the trauma this would save the rest of the family, and all of us really, because we all feel it every time this poor kid is mentioned on the news. Sometimes the justice system isn't enough, sometimes we need someone out there who is outside the law to make things right swiftly.
Where are the Punishers and Daredevils of the world?
